2004 6.0 randomly shut down on highway

Last night I was heading to my lease in Mississippi and I was on the interstate cruising at about 75 mph turning about 2100-2300 rpms and all of a sudden I lost all engine power. It started slowing down and I gave it gas and the rpms shot up and it just quit. I pulled over and came to a stop, engine was no longer running. I turned off the key and let it sit for 10-15 seconds.. I turned the key back on and let the fuel pump run for about 5 seconds and it fired right back up and I got back on the highway and ran like nothing happened. Made it to the camp and been using the truck all day and it's running beautifully.. Any help on diagnosis would be greatly appreciated. Thanks fellow powerstrokers.

Do you have a monitor? Is your truck an early 04? May be icp/pigtail acting up.

No, no type of monitor. Waiting on head studs before adding a programmer or anything like that.

Monitor, not tuner/programmer, good idea to do this.........Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.

Your icp is located under the turbo next to the ipr, it is prone to failure on this year model. Check it and see if oil is running down the back of your bell housing. It is a good idea to change the pigtail while your there. Without a monitor for live data, everything is just a guess. I'm on the ms gulf coast if your ever this way.

I'm planning on bringing it to the dealer cause its due for a full tune up. I'll get em to run some tests and help figure out what else may be starting to fade out. The truck has 179,xxx miles with original gaskets and bolts *knock on wood* so I think I'll get them to run through and check it out.

EVERY 6.0 NEEDS A MONITOR!!!!

I highly recommend the Edge CTS monitor. It is arguably the best monitor for the 6.0. I have had the scanguage II, DashBoos and now the CTS and I love the CTS. When you ready to add some bigger power its expandable for EGT and Fuel PSI.

Diesel engine tune ups amount to oil changes, fuel filters, and turbo cleaning. For $160 dollars, you can buy the scanguage II. Thats all you need. Dealers are known to cause more problems to the 6.0, there is more knowledge here than you will ever need.

Stay away from "Dealer Tune-Ups"...it really means nothing. Save the money for a gauge and change your own oil and filters. And cleaning the turbo isn't all that difficult.
