2004 6.0 crank, no start, new pump

Hi guys, new to the forum, but I've read enoguh to see alot of good advice in here. I recently had the 2004 F350 PSD do a no-start in the morning after running fine with no issues the day before, and the 7 years prior to that. EGR and cooler are gone; the only mod I've done. No per tuning. It's been agreat truck, ontil now. I've re-flowed the FICM just to be sure it wasn't that; I get 48.5 volts at all times. I was scratching my head, sitting in the truck with the key on, when the fule lift pump, which is new, came back on after not running since key on. Never done that before. IF I'm losing fule pressure, it's at the upper engine area. What do I look for? NO fule leaking out anywhere. Any help you guys could offer would be great! I don't want to be skunked and send it to a dealership.

Unfortunately, there isn't a PID that monitors fuel pressure. The fuel pressure regulator is located on the side of the secondary filter housing. You can connect a pressure gauge to the test port on the housing. An M12x1.5 adapter will be needed. There is a laundry list of "no start" issues to consider and verify:

Are all filters clean and the correct size
FICM connections secured
Wire harness chaffing at multiple locations
FICM relays and fuses
High pressure oil delivery, ICP failure and oil soaked wire pigtail, IPR screen clogged
Fully charged batteries

You get the point, too much to keep going on. I have had these same issues on my '04, and all of them have contributed to running/no start issues at one point or another.

Good luck
