Injector Control Pressure Sensor

A while ago i noticed my truck was idling rough while stopped. Now its throwing a code, i cant recall the exact code # i will get it, it was something like P228 or something? I do remember the code was "Injector Control Pressure Low". How involved is replacing this sensor? Truck is an 04 has an 03 motor, build date is July of 03.

its pretty simple... the ICP (injector control pressure) is located first off passenger said valve cover by the front of the motor.... someone correct me if iam wrong but i believe the way to remove it is a deep well 19mm socket its simple it will take mins to swap out for a new one

On a 7.3 it takes 30 seconds to change, but im pretty sure 6.0 is a lot harder.

From what ive read if the motor is before an 9-03 build date, its a pretty involved 3 hr process, airbox, degass bottle need to be removed, as well as a heat shield, and for ease, the front joint on the driveshaft as well i think. Then a special socket is needed from what i can gather, just looking for some insight here.

Also, does anyone have the part # or a ballpark price on what this will cost me? and also, what do i risk to the truck by driving it like this?!

the ICP sensor for the 03 motor is under the turbo and towards the driver side the part list for $150 you should also replace the pigtail for the sensor as well. They are known for shooting oil into the wiring harness
03 icp sensor leak ?

Finally got a chance to tear into it today, took me about 2 1/2 hours. The sensor is VERY hard to get to. I was able to get to it before it got to bad so I salvaged the pigtail. Shot some contact cleaner on it and it works like a charm. Removal was pretty straight forward (aside from being a total pain). I used a huge extention, a swivel, and a deep crows foot wrench, and was able to get it in and out fairly easy.

Is it basically the same process and location for the 04, or is it different?

NM, search finally found it:

"For 2004 to 2007 model years, the sensor was relocated to the passenger side valve cover at the front of the engine, just under the hot side CAC tube."

But I guess it depends on when in 04 it was built.

Yes you will need to check the build date. When you go in to the dealer to get the part, give them your vin and they will help you out. I had the same problem, my truck is an 04 but it has an 03 motor as well as build date.

Oh and 03f250stroke, you sir are a very lucky man to have had yours installed by a friend. Lol

unplug the horness to the ICP first and see if the truck will start, if so you have a bad ICP if not check out other things first.
