05 Powerstroke issues.

I have a 05 Powerstroke with 62k miles. It has sat in the garage for a week or so. Today I ran a couple errands and than came home. at my second stop my truck started funny. Not its usual easy start. Anyway it ran great home. Got home, and unloaded the truck. When I went to move it back in the garage it turned over once and now just the starter clicks. It is not a bad battery. Also when I tried to start it the second time, I noticed i got a buch of steam out of my heater. Also noticed some liquid driping out out from under my truck. looks to be water as I cold not see any antifreeze. Note it was over 50 degrees F so cold weather is not a concern. Any thoughts. I thought I read something similar tol this when I purchaced my truck 6 months ago but cant find it.

Steve, How do you know it's not a bad battery, just wondering, I'm reading about lots of folks having battery issues this time of year. 50 deg. is the same weather mine went bad in a few weeks ago (5yr old batteries...). If you look under the hood, do you have coolant puking from the overflow tank?? I have not had EGR or headgasket issues with my truck, however someone more experienced here may be more able to help you diagnose your water, steam, liquid issues. Good luck, I hope you get it worked out...Here is a bump for you!

Puking coolant wouldn't cause the truck to not turnover. i would lean towards either the alternator or batteries on that.

Sorry Strokin, as I wrote above, I have no experience with these issues, so I will certainly bow to someone with more experience. I suppose I was wondering if in addition to the possibility of battery issues, perhaps steve might have a ruptured EGR cooler leading to coolant possibly in the intake, hydro-lock, etc. since he mentioned that it would only turn over once then, clicking (you'd think batteries) and at that time found water leaking from underneath the truck. I suppose I was thinking that the water leaking suggested something more than batteries. I'll keep my mouth shut from here and see what the sage 6.0L owners have to say....Subscribed!

So, I went out tonight and tried to jump start my truck to make sure it was not the batteries. As suspected the batteies are plenty strong. When I turned the key on my lights just flickered. The heater coil light would go off but the engine would not turn over either. I do not recall the lights flickering yesterday when I was letting the plugs warm up so that is new. Prior to this all happening my truck started easy without an issue. I am starting to think one of the computers went bad as fast as the problem happened.

sounds like bad batteries to me... it does not take much of a drop in voltage to make the starter not actuate.. you can also ruin the FICm and injectors... just an FYI
