Exclamation Check Engine Light

I new to owning a deisel truck. I got a 95 chevy silverado 6.5L. Recently I left from work and the check engine light came on whenever I stepped on the gas. As I continued driving I was able to get to higher RPM's before the light would come on until eventually it went away alltogether. Not sure if it matters but today was one of the first days below freezing -(problem was at noon, I had it plugged in the night before.)

It has only done that a couple of times, but I am noticing that it seems to have something to do with how long I warm my truck up, and how cold it is. In warm weather I have never had the problem.
