No start after Bulletproof
Background: Truck is a 2004 6.0/5R110,
I am very mechanical but not certified in anything. I have worked on Mustangs, F150's, etc. This was my first diesel teardown. Member of F150 forum with over 1000 posts, so not a complete noob to mechanical and discussion. Thanks for any advice up front. The truck ran fine before I tore into it, It just had a 20 Delta EOT/ECT..so I figured go big because I don't want to go back in there. I replaced almost everything. I am using the EDGE CTS evolution to get the numbers below.
I installed the updated Ford oil cooler and screen, HG's, ARP's, updated stand pipe/dummy's, updated turbo feed and drain tubes, motorcraft glow plugs with new harnesses, IPR coolant filter, o-ring the injectors(just the two on outside), new gaskets on every surface, etc, etc
I got the truck started after everything was complete but it took some ether after cranking for 20 mins. Crank for 20-30 seconds then wait a few minutes and try again. But it ran/idled great for first startup after the bulletproofing was complete. Let it idle for two hours, shut it off, went about my business and came back two hours later and it started right up..nice and crisp no lag in cranking just popped right off. I go out the next morning and it wont go. Its cranking like the other day but a shot of ether kicked it off? Let it run a while shut it off then I go out yesterday morning and it just cranks. I hate using that starting fluid but even that wouldn't make it run. It would but you had to keep giving it a squirt, not wanting to damage anything, I stopped. So now it wont START!?
My DTC's are P0403, P0405, P0683, and P1000
ICP cranking voltage is 1.3-1.5
ICP pressure when cranking is 995-1045ish(was hard to watch)
FICM is at 48.0
Batteries at cranking are 11.8-12.1
Tried to disconnect the ICP connector and then put back on
oil pressure gauge isn't moving after being cranked over..or is that just 05+?
Sorry its so long just wanted to give all the details. Thanks again fellas.
