I've been having some hard starts, no starts when cold, and intermittent no starts when hot on my 05 6.0PSD CC. It went to the dealership for the STC fitting upgrade in 08 but haven't completely ruled that out. I did some research and talked to a mechanic at the local dealership. He recommended I replace the dummy plugs and standpipes. So I bought the parts and and installed them the other day.
Now when I was installing the passenger side standpipe, the lower half slipped into the block
and I looked at the upper half and thought it'll mate up once I torque it down. Well long story short, I've tried to start my truck about 8-12 times about 15second intervals and no luck.
I did not add any oil to the oil rail when I replaced the dummy plugs and standpipes but pretty much don't know what else to do. I've checked the all the wire connections and anything else I needed to remove when I performed the job but I'm pretty much dead in the water.
Any help or advice to get me back in the right direction would be awesome?
