6.0 wont start

I have a 2004 ford 6.0 with a 120.000 miles truck ran fine and then driving died and wouldnt start have had ficm and all other components tested by ford themselves tech said best guess was the ficm that didnt work now going after high pressure oil pump said this has to be problem but also tested out fine. not egr what else could it be? Is it possible for oil pump to test out fine but still be the problem? Just some more info tried diffrent fuel source still wouldnt start

All I am gonna say is if he is a Ford tech he ain't much of one. If he ran all the tests then he shouldn't have to be best guessing. He has the IDS for heavens sake, it's capable of reading every parremeter and running every test Ford has.

Ask for a copy of his trouble shooting sheet and his tests run and their results.

firstly, what are the codes it's throwing? usually if it won't start, there should be some codes.
second, is it building icp? or is the oil pressure gauge even rising when you crank?
third, is there any smoke coming out the tailpipe?
do you hear the hfcm operating with KOEO? is there any fuel in the bowl?
is the ficm syncing?
i agree with dannyboy. and all of those preliminary checks can be done without removing a single part. aside from the fuel filter. and 90% of the time, you will path the problem with just those simple checks

the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least
