Smile Stranded in Shreveport Will crank but will not stay running

I have a 2005 F250 6.0 140K. Last few days the truck has had a cold miss and stumbles at cruze. I replaced 6&8 injector and the FICM last year but this just didnt feel the same. I was cruzing about 70 and it just slowly stumbled to the side of the road until it died. Wreckered it home and found fuel filters pretty bad considering I change them every other oil change 12k. Ford filters only and Ford oil only. (I do fuel from construction tanks sometimes)I also ordered some revX and put that in my crank case along with new fuel filters. I dont feel like all eight are firing because it has to roll a bit before it cranks it will not idle but will rev to 3-3500 to 4k for about 10 seconds and like someone is turning off a switch it dies. I carefully replaced o rings on both frame and engine filter caps and it has plently of fuel. I removed the frame filter to inspect for contamination and it looks good. It takes about 5 min to sit before it will recrank then it will do the same thing. It blows blue smoke pretty good during all of this. Boost will not really get over 20. I cant get the Rev x through the engine because it will not idle long enuph. I sure would appreciiate any help from you guys. I anm Visiting family in Shreveport and am stranded

additional info. The truck stalled at night and head lights never dimmed and batterys are in good shape. Less than a year old.Alt is new. Batts are on charge now because I have run them down trying to get this 6.0 going. Dealers say they are 3 weeks behind right now. Anyone know of anyone in this area with a scan tool ?

Are your injectors buzzing? Check the connections on the FICM to be sure they are tight. Maybe do a voltage check on the FICM. Remove engine fuel filter cap, turn on key to verify fuel is filling the chamber. Those are things that can be done without a scanner.

You need a scanner, otherwise nothing but guesses....
Check ICP, thats my guess.

Injection pressure.
Have you ever changed the ICP sensor? You can inspect it with your hand and see if it has oil comming out of it. They used to be notorious for this but i don't know if it was a problem in 05
With a scanguage while cranking and while idleing
