03/04 6.0 IPR wire/connector prob w/ no-start issue
Everything I've found when searching for the above title takes me to the ICP connector pigtail oil problem. I believe I have this issue too. However, when I unplug the ICP, it still wont start.
What I do have is an obvious problem with the connector for the IPR. Right at the connector, the wires have obviously been bent over and the insulation on them is cracked, exposing the inner wires. Hard to tell at this point if they've grounded out? Or if they're touching each other. My question, before I focus on this issue is, if they are touching, what would this cause? Only codes I've got is a P2290 & p0284 or 85(#8 injector, more on this below) Would them touching cause the no start? If they are touching, what would this cause? Fuses or relay problem? Also, my history: a month ago I had the FICM solder issue and fixed it. Ran good after that except it seemed under power untill I got on it. Then it would down shift and the power was pretty normal. But crusing on highway and slowly rolling on throttle, it seemed like it wasnt making the right amount of power. Boost only showed at 5-8psi, untill I punched it, then it would climb up to the 12-20psi range and it would take off.
My current problem started a few days ago, pulled off my exit and came to a stop. Could feel and hear it missing. Checked for codes on Bully Dog Outlook monitor and had the p2290 and p0284 or 0285? Inj #8 problem, which, I had last month also and replaced that injector. Got to my shop and it was ticking and running rough. Worse than it did before when I had the inj and ficm problem. Shut it off, and tried to restart it a few min later, no-start. Waited a couple hours, let it cool down, and it re-started with same miss, tick rough idle problem. Decided to drive it home and made it about a mile and came to red light. Stopped and it wanted to die. Reved it up a few times to keep running and it shut down in the middle of street. had towed home. I was monitoring ICP pressure and even when it was dying in the street, and I was reving it, it had 1500-2500psi. All symptoms point to ICP or High press oil leak. Except when I unplug ICP, it still wont start. Thats why I'm guessing this IPR wire/ connector issue may be the culprit?? HELP?
Sorry for the long post... just didnt want to leave out any details..
