03 only starts when cold!!

I have a 2003 6.0 with 105k on it. My truck will only start when it is cold. It runs great once it starts as well as starts up with a little bit of starting fluid. Any ideas on what this can be?

Hpo oil leak for sure. Could be injector I rings to dummy plugs if so equipped.
You need to air test.

I replaced the FICM with one from Bulletproof Diesel and no change in the truck. Where should I be looking now?

IPR Valve, ICP Sensor or FICM sync is usual suspects if FICM voltage is at 45-48V at key on and during crank. See below below videos for excellent troubleshoot on this subject

Its sounds like a High Pressure Oil leak. Do you or know of someone that can hook up a scanner with data to check the high oil pressure while cranking?

Update: Bad ICP sensor. Unplugged it and it would crank right up. Replaced it. Also had 4 bad injectors. Truck runs great now.
