Starting problerm...

Have a 2004 6.0...48,000 miles...last couple of days I've been unable to start it for no apperant reason after running around on errands. Has started both times after about a 30-60 min. wait. Batteries seem fine (still factory - I bought it late in 2004 model year) - engine cranks over like a champ - just won't start. Thinking it must be a sensor or solenoid issue somewhere...wondering if anyone else has run into this?

Obviously it's a fuel related problem. beyond that i don't knwo enough about these 6.0s to make an educated guess. Except next time it happens open the door and slowly cycle the key from off to run and listen for the hum of the fuel pump.

05 same problem

Jon, I have an 05 and I have had that issue since new, It has 5100 miles on it and had done it since 2k... I have had it to the dealer 4 times they installed a new cam sensor and wiring harness to the cam sensor, still not fixed and its random so usually they cannot duplicate it... today it was towed in and when they tried it, it started, i drove it home went out 1/2 hour l8r no start, moved wiring around still no start, grabbed deadblow hammer and smacked ECU 2 times and it fired up... No codes have ever been present... very frustrating It always starts after a bit of a waiting....

Where did you go to school to learn all that you know, or did you learn as you were growing up? I've been thinking about getting into the mechanic's field and I want to check out some schools and see if they're worth going to...
