Yet another 05 no start.
I stumbled across this forum looking for information, Google is my friend.
It sounds like a lot of really good people on here that are kind enough to help others out. Here is my story. 2005 6.0 with 116,000 miles. EGR cooler, valve, and oil cooler replaced under warranty at 81,000 and FICM replaced 3 weeks later along with new batteries from the dealership. This was in Nov 08.
No problems at all before then and none since until now. My son was towing his mud truck with my truck and it overheated. He stopped and let it cool off and added some coolant and made it home with no other problems. I am sure it puked out of the degass bottle. Also I noticed a little oil leaking from somewhere on the back on the passenger side but cannot pinpoint where.
I ordered an EGR delete kit and decided I would address the oil leak while installing the kit. I drove it about 80 miles one day, parked it for 5 minutes, got back in and started back up and I got halfway out my driveway and I hear the warning chime and look at the dash and see a low oil pressure message and then the truck dies. I checked the oil again and it was fine. It started a couple more times only to die and it has not started since. My delete kit arrived and I started on that and after reading all the posts here, took the cover off the hpop and noticed the stc fitting was apart. I replaced that and installed the updated turbo drain tube and put it all back together. It will not start and I am getting no codes other than EGR codes. I borrowed a Superchips programmer from my brother to check codes. Is it possible that the dummy plug o-rings are leaking bad enough to cause this? I had no warning whatsoever, no hard starts, misfiring, anything prior to this happening.
Sorry to be so long winded, just wanted to get all thin information out I could.
