Cold engine, no power, blue smoke.
I have an 04 6.0 with 95,000 miles. Over the last few weeks it's developed a problem when the engine is cold. When I start the truck in the morning and take off I have no power or acceleration. When I get on the pedal and the engine hits 2500 - 3000 RPM's the power curve goes really flat and I get a ton of gray/blue smoke out of the exhaust. When the truck finally shifts gears and the RPM's drop the smoke goes away until the RPM's get back up again. Once the engine comes up to temperature the problem goes away and it runs fine.
Has anyone seen this? Any suggestions as to what the problem may be?
Thanks in advance,
