05 6.0 powerstroke HELP!!! Dies

i have a bone stock 05 6.0 f250. recenttly it started to randomly cut out and die on me. it will usually occur randomly upon highway speed or driving. it will start missing and dies eventually. I have changed filters and added 911 to the tank as well as drained fuel filter housing. It go bad enough that it died and I had to tow it home. And it would not start again. I checked the ficm and it was bad. with 38 volt at injector buzz. I replaced with a ford one and now it at 48.5 volts. It would still not start. it started and would pop but not start. after coaxing it we got it to start. drove it 70 miles and it drove great. then started to loose power and die again. I have no water in fuel light or anything. and I have put more fuel in since initial problem occurred. the last time this problem happened i kept my foot into the floor to get it off the road and then after parking it ran fine. does this sound like a water problem still? the truck has no codes at all and has irp of 65 at most cranking and icp of 1200 at startup. what the heck is it it's driving me crazy. I have worked around these truck for over 5 years and never had one act like this. any ideas welcome.

Try running the test for combustion gases getting into the fuel rail.

Remove upper fuel cap and filter; pour enough diesel into the houseing to top it up and disable the pump and ficm so it can't start. Roll the engine over and watch for bubbles.


Lord I shall lead them to the water but I will not try to make them drink

it seems to do it after a 120 miles or so of driving and has only done it 2 times then comes out of it... would that be a bad injector cup? the truck has never given me a single problem ever.

I think you may need to get a scanner on it. I had one that would randomly quit and it was always after it was good and hot. Look at yours in terms of temp rather than miles. I seem to recall being able to catch it on the scanner, probably while it was dead. When removed the screen wasn't torn so I assumed that it was electrically bad above a certain temperature. That truck has had close to 100,000 miles on it since then without another failure.

I have a '04 F-250 with what sounds like the same problem. No matter the temperature, hot or cold, it will shut down on me momentarily. Does not cut out or run rough. Just shuts down, then after a couple of seconds, it will start back up. I've changed the fuel filters. The main under the truck was pretty dirty. Had no problem for about a month, now it's started shutting down again. Took it to the dealership and after $500, still shutting down. When it shuts down, while driving, backing out of the parking space, etc., the glow coil indicator light comes on, on the dash. No other dash lights come on. Any ideas??
