Another 6.0 sucker

Please help, 2004 F250 SD crew 4x4 in the last 8 months I have had the EGR bypass done and replaced the injectors and last month the FICM, it ran great, I did an oil change, filter, and fuel filters I also removed the lower filter/pump housing and cleaned it, ran great for a few weeks, but I was smelling coolant but did not see a leak and did not run hot. I stopped at the store and this time had to add 1 gallon of coolant, and found a small crack in top of radiator, I guess from laying on it to work on it, added the coolant and the rotten thing wouldn't start, turn over but wouldn't run, it acted just like it did with bad FICM so towed it home FICM checked good, so I gave it a few shots of starter fluid and it started and ran great, drove around awhile came back and turned it off and it cranked back up, so I let it set for a while and it wouldn't run, so I replaced the fuel pump, and still the same, will start with starter fluid and run as long as you want but after it sets about 10 minutes or so it want start with out using starter fluid, it seems like it looses its prime. Could this be the FPR at upper filter.

It is a possibility. You really need some live data while cranking to know for shure if it's anything else.

By useing starting fluid you bypassed the normal start sequence but apparently the HPOP and system is working enough and was able to keep the truck running.

You now need to determin what wasn't working at initial crank attempt.

What were your cranking rpm? Sounds like a possible weak starter, or weak batteries.

You need to hook it up to a good scanner and see if the IPR and ICP are in range.

New batteries and turns over fast. Today I removed the upper fuel filter and turned the key and let the bowl fill with fuel and then turned it off, and after about 10 minutes the bowl was empty again and I see no leaks.

I've seen weird problems like this when using an aftermarket fuel filter. Since you just changed those, it could be your problem. If you didn't use a genuine Ford fuel filter, change it and see if that takes care of the problem.
