7.3 power stroke will not stay running until warmed up well

Is it possible this could be the power valve? When it gets below 20 degrees it will run ruff and when I start driving down the road it chocks down for a while then it takes off and runs fine. Help

Do you plug it in at night, even when mine is in my garage, and is heated but only to 40 degrees, and I back my truck up into the garage with the front end next to the door, mine wouldn't run very good, really rough if I didn't start it for a few days. Then the Ford garage told me to plug it in, they said that happens when the truck get a few miles, well I did And it run fine now, Just the little clatter until it gets oil running.
