I have a new 2006 f350 dully. When I take off from a stop i have to push peddle half way down before it will take off is this normal or is there an ajustment I can make. Almost got hit taking off from a stop sighn on my way to work today
Is it your first diesel? If so, you'll need to adapt to how a turbo diesel responds. If it's not a first, since it's new, the delaer may need to take a look at it, or you could have one that's just got a little more lag that normal.

This is pretty much normal. Turbo lag - takes about 1-2 seconds before you have really good power to move the 8K lb machine. We as users can't do any adjustments on the engine unless you have the computer hookup to do it.

This truck definitely seems to have more than my '01 7.3. It's also very bad for the first couple of minutes until the engine gets warmed up. Just be aware of it and don't pull out into traffic in a bad spot. You can also combat it by holding the brake and giving it a little gas to spool up the turbo before you're ready to take off.

Mine is the same way. It is really sluggish when it is cold and when it warms up it takes about 1 second to really get spooled up good. I thought there was something wrong also, but this is my first diesel and it is weird to not have it as responsive as my gasser, but I wouldn't trade back for anything. I will never own another gasser!!
And that's all I have to say about that.

Same with my '05 excursion...way more noticeable than with either of the 2000 model pickups with 7.3 powerstrokes. Add me to the list of satisfied people who have sold their 6.0 liter powered vehicles before they got t-boned.
Is it because it's a 350 or dually? My 05 250 doesn't seem to have any lag. The throttle is so touchy that I usually have to feather it 2 or 3 times to start off on a dirt road to get the tires to stay gripped.
