OK for starters everyone on here seems to know ALOT more about desiels than me which is great. Thanks in advance.
After reading through alot of the posts I seem to have some of the same problems and the others with a few exceptions.
2004 6.0l F250 4x4 screw 121000miles.
for starters 2 days ago while driving down the road at 65 the motor sputtered then shut down luckly I was able to get o the side of the road without incidant. Sat there for a few minutes and tried to crank but it would just turn over and over. let it sit for about 5 minutes then tried to crank finally got it started but she was idling REALLY rough smoothed out abit and I put her in gear stepped on the throttle and nothing happened. I pushed the pedal to the floor and it SLOOOOWLy started to move out and about 1mph incriments was able to get up to 45mph and limp home. T
Thought is was a fuel issue so I changed out both filters and pulled some fuel to check for water. No water so i was hoping it was fixed.
It cranked up but ran rough and would only stay running for about 30 seconds before it would shut off( Sounds like it is running out of fuel.
Pulled off the top fuel cap and have a massive amout of air bubbles filling up the housing( I did leave the filter in when I cked it).
But after talking to several mechanis and reading all the different posts it sund like it could be anything from an IPR or ICP sensor to a FICM or HPOP issue.
This is turnin out to be the worst ( and most expensive ) truck I have ever owned.
Last year I replaced most of the top with a new EGR cooler Oil Cooler head studs head gaskets injectors etc... and that was a chunk of change replaced at 107000 miles.
Any help is greatly appreciated
