where is ICP sensor, what look like?

Wow, i've done a ton of searching to figure out why my 6.0L won't start. Did the FICM checks and they seem fine.

I'd like to check the ICP sensor voltage. i found posts on it, but I don't know where ICP is, or what it looks like. Are there any pics, or is it easy to describe?

thanks

The back most part of the engine under the turbo. Find the FICM ground wire, to the back left of that is two connectors, front one is IPR bejind that is ICP on 03-04 engines. ICP on 05+ is on the pas. valve cover. it looks like any other fuel/oil pressure sensor. try google image "ford 6.0 ICP"

Normally only the 03/early 04's with the ICP sensor by the turbo have issues. Later model year engines with the ICP sensor located in the passenger valve cover have very little issues.

The 03 style ICP sensor is prone to pushing oil thru the sensor. Depending on how failed the sensor is it can cause low power or even no start conditions. Normally when they start to act up bad they will throw an ICP related code.

Any time I'm anywhere near a 03 style ICP sensor I always unplug it and look for signs of oil in the sensor connector end. If I find any oil I replace the sensor, and possibly the sensor wiring end depending on how it looks.

If you already have it all buttoned up, I wouldn't worry about it until you have problems. My f550 is throwing an ICP code now so I'm going to change it from below. Just have to reach up and over the transmission. You can always do the same after all your skin grows over.

I know how you feel, I had to buy a softer fingernail brush so it didn't feel like I was wire wheeling my hands everytime I came into the the house.

hey excusioninaz, I feel your pain all too well. But I get to one up you (unfortunately). I bought my '05 and thought I'd be pro-active. I tow a 30' toy hauler and didn't want to be on side of mountain pass hwy with issues. So I did ARP studs & 4" exhaust & ran Edge Platinum on tow setting. Later I deleted EGR, added a coolant filtration set up, and SCT tuner, as per all the stuff I read on all these forums. All of the latter mods were done at same time. I also put in an AEM intake but didn't need to do that. Very soon after the EGR delete & other stuff was done, **POOF** my first ever coolant pukes. Dealer checked it over and determined it was my degas cap (NOT!!). Kept driving it and just had a dye test done that shows it's leaking combustion gas into coolant. And recently it won't start at all. Tow truck is coming this morning.

So after I've been skinned badly, what would you call the next layer? De-boned? Filleted? Wishing I'd kept my 7.3 and had the tranny built.

Did you just do studs but not the head gaskets? I've never heard of anyone having good luck doing it that way. When you go to do head gaskets make sure you use OEM gaskets only. To many people have repeat issues with aftermarket head gaskets.
