Engine will die.

I have a 2000 F350 4X4. When the outside temp is below 45 degrees, if the truck isnt warmed up it will die if you rev the engine above 2100 rpm. It will die weather your driving or just setting. It acts like a gasoline engine when it runs out of gas or you choke it too much. If you just let it set and warm up to where the guage is around at least the C it will be fine. Any ideas? The glow plugs and relay have been replaced recently.

My guess would be a CPS. I don't know why it would only be when cold but sometimes the darn things have a mind of their own.

if its really cold outside (below 30 or so) when i start mine (I also never plug mine up) it will start and the rpm's will jump up and down and when i rev the engine up and let out real quick it will die on me... it also will do this if i kinda "pep" the peddle when its in gear

Have you added any aftermaket goodies to your truck. When was the last Oil change and were your batteries loaded tested lately? Has this been since your last fillup???? Just a few questions to get out of the way and 2:

When was the last time you changed your oil? Mine did the exact same thing and I couldn't figure it out and then I changed my oil. Fixed everything...imagine that.

Not the cps. Replaced it and still does it. Will check the older batt. Had to replace one last year. Do for oil change but dont see how that would affect it. Engine doesnt know you changed oil as in computer wise. After market is exhaust and air filter but they were on it last winter and had no problem. Thanks for all the help.

Crazy as it sounds, some of these trucks have a hard time running right when they are short 1/2 qt of oil. My guess is that you are low on oil and when you hit the go pedal, you dont have enough oil pressure to push the injectors.
These trucks also run better on fresh oil. I run mine for 5k and can feel and hear the difference from old and new oil.
