Engine would not turn over

I noticed a few days ago my 2006 f250 6.0 was running funny. I would be at a stoplight and the engine was wanting to take off while my foot was on the brake. The tachometer was bouncing up and down. Today I went to get some fuel and I could not get the engine started. I disconnected the IPC sensor and it fired right up. I plugged the wires back in and took it for a test ride. It's running fine right now but my CEL is on. Should I continue driving it or should I have ford look it over?

Thanks!

You need to pull the codes. Probably has a low ICP code. Could get lucky and just have a bad sensor or you could be developing a HPO leak.

I don't have anything to pull the codes. Does it cost much for ford to check it out?

Most dealers charge a minimum of 1 hour labor. Labor rates vary from dealer to dealer.

Thanks, I believe I tripped the code by unplugging the icp. I'll have them check it out and see what codes pop up. Since plugging the ipc back in it is running good.

You might have tripped the code by unplugging it but the reason it started is because by unplugging it, the PCM assumes there is a minimum of 500 psi of oil pressure. With the sensor plugged in, it's probably not allowing the pressure to get to 500+ psi which will cause a no start condition.

Just got back from another test drive. This time when I started the truck the check engine light was off and running fine. I washed the engine compartment about a week ago and wonder if that had impact on the sensor?
