I need some advise please

background…I bought a 2005 F-250 FX4 Super Duty Crew Cab Lariot with an engine problem in 2010. The truck ran but overheated and would not restart due to a hydra-lock, after setting for about 20 minutes it would restart. I put the truck in my garage and didn't do anything to work on it until March of 2012. I didn't know exactly what was wrong with the truck so while the truck sat in the garage I began watching videos, reading forums, talking with people who "knew" about the 6.0 Powerstroke and I tried to absorb as much information as I could. I didn't know if I was dealing with a head gasket or an EGR cooler?…So I figured what the hell? I purchased the sinister EGR delete kit, up pipe, factory ford oil cooler and all the gaskets. the oval screen beneath the oil cooler was torn, I replaced it also…looking back, it might have came with the kit. installed the sinister block off plate where the EGR valve used to be. I started the truck and all was good, I have put 12,000 miles on the truck since the repair was made so I figured all was good. I park in a heated garage because I notice when the truck is cold is runs horrible until the engine warms up. I have been putting up with this for quite a long time, if I would try to drive without the engine being up to temperature it would really drive bad, not want to shift, ect…I noticed my battery light came on and off a few times, so I replaced the alternator Friday at work, now the truck will not restart. The only thing I did that was out of the ordinary was I drove the truck to work without letting it warm up. It seemed to smooth out like normal when on the highway, but I noticed it didn't have the normal power?…my mind was on work and I didn't think much of it, as I was getting ready to leave to go home….crank crank crank, no start….a fellow mechanic suggested replacing the crap autozone batteries in the truck, so I had NAPA send me the best batteries for the truck. Of course no restart, unplugged the ICP and tried again, no restart. checked all connections under hood, found nothing a miss. hooked up a matco scan tool and found FICM voltage was 46-48 volts KOEO and while cranking…((let me back up, before this no start happend FICM was suspect so I had been monitoring voltage for a few days…there were times voltage fell below 45 but just for a few seconds, that was with old Duralast Batteries)) so I figured it was the STC fitting on the HPOP, even though it drove there…seemed most likely to me, tore the truck down, removed HPOP and the STC fitting seemed in tact, but when I removed the IPR the screen had debris on it and had a small tear? I hooked shop air to the HPOP and oil came out of the rubber seal on the shaft, but none seemed to escape through the STC fitting?…what is the debris on the IPR screen? looked like microscopic "BB's"?…holidays are upon us, money is tight as hell, I have a 1996 F-150 4X4 as a back up, but I want my diesel back and running right…..any help would be appreciated…..

Sounds like you may have had some residual lint / debris hit the IPR screen after working on the oil cooler. Unfortunately, I've seen this happen on more than one occasion. Exactly how did you clean the HPOP reservoir?

Its been a long time since I made that repair, I could have gotten some debris down there, I probably used BrakeKleen and microfiber towels, I would have used 3M scotchbright wheels to clean around the O-ring surface…but could that have been in there for 7-8 months and 3 oil changes?…also I use "Baldwin" oil filters from TruckPro...

Man, there could be a bunch of different things causing the issues you're seeing. No kidding, I'd start by going back to a Motorcraft oil filter and an OEM oil filter cap. It's the least expensive repair option and could very well cause some of the issues you're experiencing.

the ICP pressure was about 3lbs KOEO…while cranking it shot up to 279lbs, I know it takes at least 500 lbs to start, I guess my question is can I replace the IPR sensor and do the STC fitting upgrade without replacing the HPOP?…will I have any luck? or is the high pressure oil issue somewhere else? dummy plug? ect?…just so damn odd that it didn't die?…I shut the truck off, then no restart?…one other thing, 2 days prior to the no start, I changed the fuel filters with Baldwin fuel filters

seems I'm having the same problem with my truck, f250 xlt diesel 6.0 2006. starts cold but, soon as I turn off will not start until 6hrs later. computers reads different things but, they are all connected to the same problem. Now I have code 2285 with engine light on. Dealer did my last oil change I now have leak coming out of the oil filter under hood squirting out. Someone says it's a pressure leak but, where? in the standpipe don't know. Truck runs great 98km not even broken in yet. I unplug the ICP sometimes it starts up but, computer says that's not the problem. Anyone with same problem any help I could use hope it does not cost alot to fix. I was told that these engines are defective from International with loads of problems after awhile.

Motorcraft filters and matching cap only, watch the video......http://www.dieselfiltersonline.com/f...k-filters.aspx
As suggested, you may not be filtering the oil and trash made it to the ipr.....good luck.
