06 6.0 died

I have an 06 6.0 f-250...was running great and just died on the side of the road...I have replace crank sensor and fuel pump so far...also pulled the ficm and checked the solder joints....they appeared fine but I reflowed them anyway....codes when it died were low injector current on all 8 cylinders.... voltage on the ficm is about 26 when you turn the key on but 48.5 after 10 seconds or so....and 48+ while cranking on the engine....what am I missing...does anyone have any ideas????

Not sure about the FICM and injector codes. But my neighbor a while back blew his STC fitting on his truck, this fitting is some sort of fitting in the oil system (i think). His truck was running fine until he went back outside to start it up, and it wouldnt start.
The STC fitting is a big problem with the 6.0ls especially on the earlier models although his is an '06 also.

I had the same problem on my '04. It was the Accelerator position sensor. Unplugged and plugged it back in, been running fine since.

I'm putting my $$$ on the fitting. It's right next to the HPOP (high pressure oil pump)..
I'm about to have to pull mine too.

Your FICM is bad or you still have a poor solder joint which is causing your issue.

His is an 06, so the STC fitting isn't likely. Additionally, a faulty STC fitting wouldn't give you ANY diagnostic trouble codes... Ask me how I know...

Search STC fitting and see how well they hold up compared to the threaded.. Not a whole lot better. Mine is an '06 and guess what I'm replacing? Yup. STC fitting..
But it not throwing a code would make sense. (too lazy to read. lol)

Did it end up being the STC fitting? Sounds like it was your oil screen...

PS. if your oil screen was torn, you should check your IPR as well and make sure it isn't clogged with junk, too.

Indeed it was sir. It wasn't torn, just clogged as hell..

But search around and you'll read that the STC fitting is not much better in a lot of ppls eyes..
And IPR was 2nd thing checked.

Good deal. My screen was torn as was my IPR, so whatever tore my screen also put a tear in the IPR. BTW, I have been through all the "fixes" for the STC fitting so I have personal knowledge on how unreliable it can be...
