Angry won't restart, at witt's end

SINCE NOVEMBER I HAVE REPLACED...

INJECTORS, VALVE COVERS, VALVE COVER SEALS, GLOW PLUGS, GLOW PLUG WIRING HARNESSES, ALTERNATOR, IPR VALVE, IPR VALVE SENSOR, CAM SENSOR, PICM, AND THE ENGINE WIRING HARNESS, BLUE TURBO TUBES, BATTERIES, AND I AM SURE I AM MISSING SOME SMALL $600 PART SOMEWHERE.


LAST WEEKEND IT LEFT ME STRANDED BECAUSE THE DEALER DIDN'T FILL THE ENGINE BACK UP TO CAPACITY AND THE LOW OIL SHUT OFF SENSOR KICKED IN. TOOK ME THREE HOURS TO FIND THIS PROBLEM.

MONDAY I HAD TO SIT FOR TWO AND A HALF HOURS, BECAUSE THE B@#$# WOULDN'T RE-CRANK. RAN THE BATTERIES DEAD, AND A COMMERCIAL LARGE TRUCK JUMP BOX.

SO OF COURSE.....I'M THINKING IPR VALVE?????? BUT THIS IS A BRAND NEW PART!! IT HAS LESS THAN 5K MILES ON IT. FIRST ONE MADE IT 160K AND THIS ONE FAILS AFTER 4 MONTHS???

AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE?? I AM AT WITT'S END AND QUITE FRANKLY I THINK THE DEALERSHIP DOES A CRAPPY OF TROUBLESHOOTING MY PROBLEMS.....AT A RATE OF $80/HR.

THE TRUCK CRANKS JUST FINE WHEN COLD, THE CLOSER AND CLOSER THE TEMP ENGINE GETS TO FULL TEMP, THE LONGER IT CRANKS UNTIL IT FIRES. ONCE AT NORMAL OPERATING TEMP, IT WON'T START AT ALL.

ANY TAKERS? ANYONE GOT A GALLON AND A MATCH?

Any codes? Did you use the " no start check list on this site ?" FICM VOLTAGE? What else can you tell us? What oil did the dealer put in the truck? If you can get to your IPR sensor, way in back of the engine and unplug it will it start? This sound like a classic high pressure oil system leak or an FICM issue. I know you said the "dealer" didn't fill it up all the way. Who changed the oil and is there any chance that a non-motorcraft filter was used?

BTW ALL CAPS = Yelling at us, and its hard to read too.
