Help me!

Alright this evening I was going down the interstate, got on it to pass a car and it jumped up and passed Em, the. Lost power down to abt half throttle put the truck in neutral to shift back into D to see if that fixed it and when I put it in N it stalled. I haven't been able to start it and just changed oil three days ago. It drove a 250 mi round trip yest with no problems and was fine until now! I've tried to crank it so much damn batteries went dead.

We checked to see that oil level is good, it is. Fuel is getting to fuel filter on top of engine when key is turned on and truck turns over fine. No check engine codes thrown. Idk I'm lost and ticked off ready to throw a match in the tank.

STC fitting ever been changed?

btw throwing a match in the tank won't do a damn thing unless you fill it with gas first

Haha that was proverbial. And not that I know of. Just noticed oil dripping from the two lines running down the two lines that run along the frame on right side at oil drain plug level

See if it will start in the morning, I had the same problem with my 07 and I picked up dummy plugs stand pipes and a new stc fitting kit. It's been raining so I have not finished putting in my stc fitting, but my ficm voltage was fine and I had also just checked hi pressure oil psi and it was good but after I ran up the temp some lost some psi and shut down injectors, I'm not even sure if that was my problem but that is the cheap way to start and they need to be upgraded anyway.

How do I differentiate if it's the stc vs hpop?

It is more common for the stc fitting to leak on the 06 then the hpop to go out, and the dummy plugs o-rings get flat spots as well there are upgraded plugs and stands with teflon rings on them and the stc fitting is also a updated version that comes in a kit with all orings and necessary installation parts. The stc fitting is in the hpop there are a lot of write up's on here about it and some u-tube vids as well.

Would the STC fitting going bad cause oil to leak out and down onto the transmission lines?

yes it could if it blew out hard enough to crack the rear cover. The trans lines are on the right side which is the same side the cover would be cracked if the STC smacked it.

aight, just got the turbo and pedestal off and I don't see any where that the oil is leaking. the housing looks good and looks as though that oil that is dripping maybe from where I'm a crappy aim with a 5qt oil can trying to pour it back in to the filter housing. I'm wondering if I need to try just the sct first or go ahead and pop a new HPOP back in it? any ideas. i didn't notice any damage and again I didn't get any codes thrown. i just dont wanna sink all the money into a HPOP and it be the crankshaft sensor or some other problem. I don't have access to a multimeter to check the ficm either just basic handtools at the moment and good ole brute strength.
