Pressure washed now won't run

Just pressure washed my engine compartment on the 6.0 stated it up.ran like crap. Then died after 30sec, wouldn't start back up. After cranking still nothing fuel bowl fills up. Air filter got wet , connections didn't seem wet tho. Won't even run on either. Injectors aren't opening

You most likely fried one of the sensors.

What year? 03-04?
If you can't get it to run on either I would say the throttle valve (connected to the intake manifold) is grounded to the closed position preventing air(and either)from going in

No i mean it will try to to tin if i spray it in there. But the injectors aren't pumping fuel in the motor. I'm thinking possibly fried the ficm, icp.

Air for senspr got wet,.would that cause three truck not to run?

You need to get some readings somehow


Ficm volts ( 48 vdc)
Icp volt or pressure ( engine needs more than 500psi to run)
Ficm sync (yes no)

Most monitors will give you that info.

I'd start by pulling sensor connectors and taking some canned air to blow any possible moisture out. Sure you could have got water into the FICM but that's a pretty fat gasket so you would need to be holding the water spray REAL close in order to get some inside the FICM.
