I have a problem with my F250 with the 5.4L V8, 98,000 miles. It tends to give me an issue when it is below 55 degrees outside when I try to start it. It gets good cranking and then it goes dead once started. Sometimes it shudders and goes to a couple hundred RPM, then dies. IF I keep my foot lightly on the accelerator, it will stay on. Once warm, I notice that the RPM will hold at it's normal about 700RPM. I never see this problem on a warm morning. I don't drive the truck much, maybe 100 miles a month to go coach a baseball team during practices/games. I'm thinking maybe a fuel pressure problem or injectors? I have a new fuel filter I want to install, I'm not sure how to install it with the quick coupling on each end with the funny extraction tool. Your thoughts on the problem with low idle to shutting off? Thanks for your help.
