Give the truck to your wife it likes her better .

It could be a number of things from a leaking o-ring on the HPOP system, poor fuel pressure, weak batteries, failing FICM and the list goes on. you really need to get it on a good scanner that can run tests and monitor sensors to narrow it down.

I'd say leaking through injector o-rings by the sound of it, same thing happened to me. But it definetly sounds like a high pressure oil system leak

I'm gonna say its the two 10mm allen plugs in the front of the oil rail. The o-rings on those go bad ALL THE TIME and cause a high pressure oil leak when hot. When the oil is thick and cold, it compensates for the damaged o-rings, but once it gets hot and thins out, it will cause a no start when hot. you can usually crank it for about 20 seconds and it will start up. monitor your ICP level after its hot and you shut it off. You have to have 500 psi to fire your injectors and usually what happens is your ICP will sit at about 200 forever and finally build up enough pressure. I work at a Ford dealer and thats the most common problem we see for no start when hot.

Ok thanks for the heads up. now i need to do a update for u guys the truck is now a full on no start at all. also my build date is 03/04 but my icp sencer is in the pass side valve cover.so im thinking its a 05 motor which would mean i have a stc fitting.now is there anyway to see this fitting with out diging in to the thing?

not really. just pull the valve cover. you can have it off in about 30 minutes or less. but like I said, id say its the plugs. We have a fitting that screws into the ICP hole and we apply shop air to it. Do this when its hot and doesnt start but now it wont start to just do it whenever haha. If there is a high pressure oil leak, you will hear air coming from it. If it turns out to be the plugs, replace both, not just one. The other will usually be quick to follow.
