My 6.0 just stalled out

I have a 2004 6.0 that has been great. Today I was stopping at a light and it died, and would not restart. I finally got help off the road after about 30 mins, and went to start and it fired up. Drove for 1/2 mile, and it did the same thing. Came back 1 hr later and it fired up, then died again. Any idea what the deal is? Thanks for the help in advance. Matt

Have you had any recent maintenance to the fuel system.... i.e. did you have the filters changed?

My '03 was doing the same thing...funny thing is it happend when my mechanic and I took it out on a test drive after he cleaned the EGR. So I took it to the Ford Dealership the next morning and had the PCM reflashed which fixed it. That might be a fix for you...cost me about 200 bucks.

Is it throwing any codes?

This may be the begining of all your problems. Cleaning the EGR did knowthing for my truck, I had to replace it to get it to run properly. Now my truck is in the shop w/blown head gaskets

Dammit. I hate hearing that. Good luck with it Tex. You going to be stuck driving the Sammy 'till it's fixed?

know a guy that had a very similar experience recently..ended up being the HFCM..do you hear the pump run when the ignition is turned to run?

sounds like either HPOP(won't spray the injectors) or HFCM(no fuel to be sprayed)..

well

a good thing to think about first of is that when a 6.0 has a high pressure oil leak alot of times it will run fine until it cuts off then it usually takes an hour or more to start back up do to expansion and contraction of components. What i'm thinking here and maybe scott and marc can add to it is potentially the fuel pump. I say that because I have seen one several act like that. I could be off but it takes several times of cycling the key to get enough fuel pumped to start the truck, then it runs just far enough to burn the fuel that it did pump. Be a good thing to look at right after you get the codes pulled.

sounds like you have a problem with your high pressure fuel system more than likely..... It could be related to those injectors you had replaced (damaged snap rings) or it could be the STC connection on the back of the high pressure oil pump (early 04's dont have problems with this, late 04's and newer trucks do)
