2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty Q&A

2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty Question: Hard morning starts...

A.M. start ups usually after the truck has sat for more than 12hrs. It has a hard miss and blows black smoke out the tailpipe. Runs like this for approx 2min then clears right up. Can anyone tell me why? -

EGR valve is Probably sticking due to carbon deposits, or the injector spool valves are sticking, the EGR valve itself runs about $350, and depending on the mileage the repairs might be covered under the Diesel Engine Warranty with only a small deductible at your local Ford Dealer, Here is a Service Bulletin for the concern. hope this helps.
