6.0 stalled on highway, won't start
Coming home from camping yesterday, my 2006 F350 dually died on the highway while pulling our 5th wheel. I was able to coast it to a nearby gas station. Tried to restart it, but no luck. There was only about 10-15psi registering at the ICP according to my Edge Insight. Also, after cranking the engine and then looking under the hood, I could hear a hissing noise coming from the around the oil filter area, but couldn't pinpoint exactly where it was coming from. The battery light also came on as I tried to crank the engine over which I have never seen before. I let it sit overnight and tried cranking it over this moring and got around 100psi at the ICP and the battery light still on, but it still wouldn't start (obviously). No oil pressure registers on the dummy gauge either. I also checked the coolant and oil just for kicks and everything was fine there. I've read a lot of post here on the forums, but couldn't find any that matched up with what I'm experiencing. Any ideas as to what may be the problem?
Not sure if the additional info would help, but I noticed some oil on top of the block a couple of weeks ago in the same area that the hissing is coming form, and it's running of the back of the block and dripping of the bellhousing. I had an IPR valve and STC fitting replaced on this truck last summer when it died. This current situation is similar to last summer, but not quite. The truck is currently at a dealership 90 miles from here and will be looked at tomorrow. Would like to know if anyone has experience anything similar and what I might be getting into.
