2006 6.0L No-Start after STC replacement
2006 F-350, 6.0L PSD, 4x4, lariat, crew cab, long bed, with 130,000 mi.
Ok guys, I really hope you guys are able to help me here. A few months ago my STC fitting failed and cracked my rear engine cover. Since then I have replaced the STC fitting, rear engine cover, oil cooler, IRP valve, dummy plugs, oil and fuel filters, etc. After months of having it in my garage I finally got it all back together. I went to crank it, cranks good, but no start.... boo.
I do have a P0677 code (glow plug #7) could that cause a no start issue? Since I did the fuel filters I suspected a fuel problem as well. I checked the engine compartment fuel filter bowl and it did have fuel in it.
My other issue is that I do not have a computer. I'm thinking about getting the Banks iQ with the tow programmer. I want to get this one for monitoring my engine while driving and because it can do a lot of different things, but i'm not sure if it can do all of the diagnostic stuff that I need it to do right now. I've heard a lot about the SCT and might consider that one. I do have a nice Blue Point multimeter thought. hopefully the meter will be enough to get me started right now though.
If anybody could point me in the right direction on how to start tracking down this no start issue I would greatly appreciate it. I'm ready to have my truck back on the road. Thanks PS.O
