After EGR cooler and Oil Cooler, ran but now dead?

2005
6.0
F250
225K miles

Blowing white smoke. Replaced EGR Cooler, and Oil Cooler. Fresh oil and coolant. Started and RPM up to 2,000 (left over brake clean from cleaning tubing, etc?)

Started 2nd time, RPM 800, idled poorly for a few seconds. Blimped throttle, and RPM jumped again.

Started 3rd time, RPM 800, idle started to smooth out. Started process of adding coolant to degas bottle. 4 gallons of coolant and water into bottle. RPM steady, starting to clean out, smooth out.

Sitting in side, oil pressure gauge was at 75% on gauge. Truck dies. Attempted restart = no go.

Opened fuel filter housing next day, empty. Guessed out of fuel. Added fuel, turned over, and plenty of fuel in filter housing.

Runs for a few seconds on a LITTLE shot of starting fluid.

No oil pressure when cranking, and oil filter housing is empty. Filter is moist, but not swimming like I think it should.

Research gives me a bunch of acronyms... ICP, IPR, etc?

HELP, please? I need this thing to run.

Thank you!
Zach

The oil filter housing will always be empty when you open it.. There is a valve on the bottom of the housing that opens when you crack open the cover and drains the housing into the oilpan.
Remove the filter. look for the black plastic poppit valve in the bottom of the housing, using a long handled screwdriver, hold that valve down and crank the engine over..the housing should fill quickly.

Take the fuel filter out of the housing on top of the engine, have someone turn the key on..that housing should fill quickly.

Typically it's an IPR contamination problem that results after an oil cooler repair. Debris gets down into the oil cooler reservoir passage and punches its way through the screen clogging up the valve.

Can you elaborate on the IPR, what and where it is located?

Replaced IPR and cleaned turbo.

Runs for 3-5 minutes, and dies. Idle blips 1-3 times during this time, blips up, then back to normal.

I don't trust it to pull it out of the driveway. Anything in particular I should be looking for?

I know its a shot in the dark with that many miles on it but do you know if it still has the factory STC fitting on the hpop? Sound like the oil thins out, it dies and doesn't restart. That tells me its a high pressure oil leak.
