EGR delete/oil cooler- was running now no start...

Let me start by saying I checked the no start sticky but still confused with these symptoms! Truck is an 04 F250 with 160k miles. Just replaced the oil cooler and installed an IPR EGR delete. Got everything back together and truck started just fine. Took it for a ride, got fuel, and parked it for the night. Next day checked all fluids and went to pick up a plow truck on my trailer. Pulled it home great, no problems until we got home. While idling in the driveway, truck died once but then fired right up. Drove it to work that night and it died once when pulling into the parking lot. Cranked for a few seconds but then fired up. Started fine halfway thru the night. Started fine when leaving work in the morning. Stopped to run an errand, truck was off for a few minutes and then wouldn't start. Still won't start. Cranks just fine but nothing. I have a scanguage but really needing help on where to go with this. Was a diesel virgin prior to pulling this truck apart. From what I've been reading thinking possibly IPR or ICP? How can I tell? Thanks for any help in advance!

Forgot to add that oil pressure is showing on the dash guage after cranking for about 10-15 seconds. Also FICM voltage is showing at 48 key on and cranking.

IPR should be 84% while cranking and ICP needs to be at least .82 volts to start. Doesn't seem like your problem though. It seems like you might have a wiring chaffing issue. I would go through and trace the wiring harness from the injectors all the way back to the ECM (make sure to go past the FICM). Only reason for a shut down and immediate re-fire (IMO) is a wiring issue. Couldn't be a HPO system leak other wise it would always show itself when hot. (Hard to start always when hot). Don't go off the factory gauges as they are glorified idiot lights. The oil pressure gauge doesn't move until 7psi of oil pressure, I think.

Thanks for the reply. I know the dash guages are unreliable at best, just using it to show there was some sort of pressure. ;-) Are there known trouble spots on the 04 6.0 harnesses? Or common pinch points after a teardown like this?

Lots of possible areas that's why I recommend looking everywhere slowly and carefully and with a little mirror...

So I checked IPR when cranking and it is at 78.4%. I don't know if I programmed the ICP wrong or something but it is giving me between 390-405 when cranking. Would the IPR being down 6% be enough to not allow it to start? Could that have been the intermittent die also? Thanks again for any help!!

the ipr screen could of been clogged with junk when you removed the oil cooler, there are couple of common high pressure oil leaks that are mostly easy to fix:

blank plugs,
dummy plugs
stand pipe


also you need 500psi to crank over a 2004 6.0 watch these videos guy seems really knowledgeable and no its not the infamous powerstrokehelp guy...

part one



part two



he goes into detail the things needed to start a 6.0..

Thanks for the video links! My brother's diesel tech instructor who has alot of experience with Powerstrokes is leaning towards the IPR. What is the easiest way to switch that out?
