Serious Help ASAP (im lost)

ok i have an 04 and for a while now my truck would stall and always restart but sometimes it would take up to 30 minutes before it would finally start. I had a scanner and hooked it up and it sais i had cylinder 7 and 4 injector malfunctions so i took my sct off before i did the work, i installed the injectors and it ran fine, then i go to put back on my sct and it will not start at all, turns over fine but wont hit. I can spray some starting fluid in the turbo and it will start but wont stay running, so i put the scanner on it and it says every injectors circuit is low. I dont know what i did wrong, I have noticed that when im turning my truck over it will hit and try to start only when my oil pressure gauge jumps up but it will not run at all. If anyone can help please let me know. If its not to much trouble you can call me and help me. My names danny and my numbers 9016195173. I need some help.

Sounds to me like an UMPTEETH FICM failure, by what you describe.

well thats what I thought and I talked to the guy from outlaw diesel and he told me to just look back over my work and make sure i didnt leave anything out so i broke down the left side valve cover to make sure the injector was seated right and checked the wiring. The rod thats connected to the high pressure oil rail that slides down into the head wasnt pressed up in the oil right like it should have been. put it all back together and she fired up after about 2 minutes and now shes running like a scolded jack rabbit

so what is up with these ficm's? is it the location or something? these things seem to be terrible. must be a design flaw.

There is yet another TSB forthcoming from mother Ford to address this issue. Whether or not it will resolve it, only time will tell. I don't have much faith in a lot of their TSBs, due to the fact that their theories regarding some particular pattern failures have been proven wrong on many occasions. The most current TSB from Ford instructs us to obtain to FICM calibration before and after the repair. Speculation was, that the inductive heat calibration was overloading and burning the FICMs out. However, I and other Ford dealer techs have had MANY that have arrived, that DID NOT have the inductive heat calibration installed.

i will agree with this , ive had several bad that didnt have the inductive heat programming , but at first it did seem like a possibility that could have been the cause
