fastfritz Camshaft Position Sensor! Ordered a re-man PCM and it didn't work at all and killed my batteries in the process. Got new batteries, put in original PCM and hooked up my code reader before I fired it up. Got the error for the Cam sensor. Took 2 days to get it out of the block because it was seized in there. Lots of penetrating fluid and drooled a 1/2 gallon of P/S fluid down the arm removing the P/S hose to get the sensor all the way out. Gotta love the Ford engineers........truck starts fine and no longer stalls when cold!

If so, get that oil out of there and change to a synthetic diesel rated CI4, CI4+ or CJ4 5W40 oil or a 10W30.

Also, if you really did mean it, post a link to the oil.
Yes Motorcraft Super Duty Diesel synthetic blend. Oh Shoot~ it is a 15W-40 not 15W-20! DUH! I talked to my part store guy with your concern. He ordered up Amsoil full synth diesel 10W-30 for me.

dillon134 This is just a shot in the dark but could it be your MAF sensor? The symptoms you've described are a bit odd.

'2006 6.0L stalls when cold

Hello all! Newbie here. Have been checking other threads to see if anyone has this problem. Looks like most have a tuner kit of some sort so I have to ask this here.

I have recently purchased a 2006 F350 6.0 4wd dually to haul my car to the track. I used to own a 2000 F250 with the V10 that I sold to pick up the dually. The F350 has 126,000 mile on it and it is stock except for a dealership done EGR delete performed before I bought it.

The problem I am having is that it has started to stall out when cold. Either when I put it into gear, or as I come to a stop. Just dies right off. The idle is at about 650. I tried to use the block heater to fool it into thinking it was warmed up, but no luck. I have recently replaced the FICM ( which was a plug-and-play-already-flashed) and have taken it to my local Ford dealer to have it re-flashed as well. Still have the same problem. The dealer re-flashing changed the driveability of the truck, and the MPG as well (for the better), but it still stalls when cold. After driving ( and restarting a 1/2 dozen times ) it will run just fine, and stop just fine.

Should I replace the PCM? Should I seek out a diesel tuner to adjust the cold idle? Keep away from the dealer who offers no help?? I love this truck and this is driving me nuts.

I have changed the oil with 15W-20 diesel synthetic blend with a filter change as well as a fuel filter (both) change.

Any ideas?
