Angry Stall/Start Problem

I have a 2003 6.0 diesel, that I suspected had a hydro lock. After sitting for about two weeks, it cranked and started, so I dove it to a neighborhood shop about 5 miles away without any problems. The repair guy, works for Ford in another city with this shop on the side. He called the same day to tell me about all my problems and basically said he would have to rebuild the entire engine at a cost of about $12,000.00. He also told me that he had taken the truck out for a test drive with an expensive test equipment attached and he said that it stalled and wouldn't restart. When I decided to pick up the truck so I could think about my alternatives, it wouldn't crank because two main fuses were blown. After replacing the fuses, it started and he told me to "not let it idle down, because it would die and not restart. Sure enough, when I slowed down to make a turn, about 3 miles it died and would not restart. The next morning it started right up and this time I made it about 1 miles when I slowed down to make another turn. This happened again before I made it home. This morning I started the engine without problems and let it idle and it finally died about 10 minutes later. I wasn't having this problem until I took it to the repair shop. Is there something that he blew besides the main fuses to cause this problem, like a sensor or did he reprogram something?

Just an update. This morning I started the truck and idled it at about 1200 rpm for 30 minutes without any problem, but when I attempted to lower the rpm to 1000, it died and won't restart. It seems like about 3 years ago, I had some sensor replaced inside the engine that caused this same problem. Any ideas of what my problem is?

You need to get a diagnostic scanner hooked up to it and measure your injection control pressure and IPR duty cycle. Sounds like you have a high pressure oil leak.

No codes

Got my toy today, but it doesn't show any codes.

The coolant temp. got to 160 and the engine died. No codes and won't restart. While cranking, it does not show any rpm.While it was running, I think the idle was at about 650.

It starts like a champ when it is stone cold. Runs fine at higher rpm, but as soon as I decrease the rpm, its dead.

Any and all suggestions and comments are welcomed.

You need to re-read my post above. You need a diagnostic scanner to measure Injection Control Pressure (ICP both actual and desired) and Injection Control Pressure Regulator (IPR).

Oh, I read your post and understood it, I was just hoping to at least find some error codes that might give me a little information to work with. Shouldn't I at least be getting some codes like p 2284 thru 2291 if there is a problem with the ICP?

I keep reading on some bulletins that the computer needs to be updated. Is it possible that he could have reprogrammed or deleted some updates on the computer inadvertently or intentionally. The truck was not doing this until he diagnosed the truck for an unrelated problem.
