Buddies truck wont start, New FICM.........
He has had issues with cold starts since january. Progressively gotten worse.
Here are the facts:
-2006 F350 Dually
-Bone stock except air filter
-Hard starts turned into no start yesterday (60* outside)
-FICM voltage 19V key on, 14.8V cranking
-Batteries less than two months old
-Last trip to dealership in January, replaced fuel tank, fuel conditioner module (didnt fix hard starts obviously)
-Installed Swamps 58V FICM this morning (I helped him)
-No start, cranks hard, 57V key on, barely drops during cranking
-Puffs white/gray normal smoke color while cranking
-Fuel pump runs, fuel in filter on motor
-Shows oil pressure while cranking (stock gauge)
We put the FICM in thinking that was the issue, apparently not.
