New to diesel stalling at start

Hello everyone. I'm new to diesel. I have a 2005 6.0. When my truck sits for a while. I warm glow plugs. Turn over truck. starts up runs rough for a second then stalls. Does this once or twice then starts right up and runs great. Any one help with what this could possibly be. It's 50 degrees average here. Thanks everyone.

Re: New to diesel stalling at start

This is probably a combination of issues. Sounds like you're in need of new glow plugs as a starter (or could be the control module). Probably could also use some Archoil or some other stiction additive. First things first though, before you go spending any money on parts, is to get either TorquePro or Forscan for your phone along with the bluetooth adapter for your OBDII port and find out what the computer is telling you. There may be a code saying exactly what's wrong....or it may at least give us some useful info to make a better suggestion.
