Crank but no start

Hi, guys my 2007 6.0 cranks but wont start. I've tested the F.i.c.m. and got 51.2VDC. Cranking the oil filter bowls pumps oil in and I changed fuel filters and manually primed it like my 7.3's. It started hard that day and then wouldn't start. It doesn't wanna give it up. My battery's have 1100 cold cranks in each of them. Please help I almost wish I never bought it, I've had four 7.3's without issue and this 6.0 is a problem child.

When you turn on the key, can you hear the injectors operate (buzz test)

do you have a scanner, not just a code reader?

If you do, what is the injector control pressure reading during start?

Also check for FICM Sync. Also check the Fan harness and EBP sensor wires for damage or shorted out.

It has the buzz and the pump sounds dry like it isnt getting fuel? I'm going to borrow my buddy's international program reader. I use motorcraft filters I have used K&N I compared them side to side the are exactly the same size shape and color. I have leaking head gaskets to this truck is getting expensive. Lol

do u have a fuel pressure gauge in your truck if not take cap off top filter have someone turn key to on and see if fuel pump is working. or install a psi tester on fuel bowl should be around 50 to 55 psi at least hope that helps. they are finnickey bitohes

you have air in lines now,it might try to fire. You need 50 psi min or u will be dry firing the injectors, not a good thing to be doing. You really need a fuel pressure gauge. Also you can disconect the fuel lines on fuel pump and blow air through them back to the tank, then try the upper cap thing again. Cycle pump 3 times. if no fuel then pump,s brobably toast. hope this helps i`ve been there myself.

If you're fuel pump is gone (check all your fuses and connections first), you can save a few bucks by just buying the pump itself instead of the whole HFCM.

I was able to swap mine out with the HFCM in place, pretty quick job, but the bolts holding it in place are small so use caution.
