6.0 issues again

ok here we go,,, i have a 2005 f-250 6.0 4x4 crew cab lots of miles, its already had the oil pressure pump changed , egr cooler, and the high pressure oil rails along with some injectors,also replaced the ICP sensor a few months back, just the other day i was driving it and stopped in to grab a quick bite to eat, and when i came out the truck wouldnt crank up,, it turned over for about 45 seconds before it would fire up,, then after that example if i pump fuel it will crank right up when im done if i go inside a place for like an hour it will not want to crank up,,, bought some either, to help get it cranked up just incase she wont fire ,, could i be do for a oil change,, i know im a little over but i didnt think 1000 miles would cause that kind of issue, any help would be appreciated , Thanks

Andy

Oil viscoity and cleanlyness of the oil are critical, but without more detailed info you could have other issues. Have the truck scanned for any codes and live data.

Read the sticky at the top of this page it list most of the no start hard reasons and paremetes to look for.

go to a shop that KNOWS 6ohs (not the dealership in most cases)




have them check ICP pressure and let them diagnose the issue...but 99% it is what I posted above. VERY common problem on 05-07 6ohs is the STC fitting on the HPOP failing



The fitting is underneath the steel plate in the bottom righthand corner of the pic!

Dummy plugs and stand pipes are under the valve covers and there are updated ones that have teflon rings on them to help extend the life of the o rings, they allow the oil pressure to fire the injectors when the o rings get even just a little worn you loose pressure when warm and the injectors will not fire.

did that fix your problem i think i am having the same issue. my truck starts but it take for ever for it to start like a old carbed motor would with if i cycle the switch about 3 time if fires up like it is suppose to. i crank it for a 2 seconds or so then i cycle the switch and crank it again then cycle the switch and it fire up. each time i wait for the the glow plug light to go out. it runs fine as far as i know i am going to try and clean the egr valve to see if that fixes my problem let me know if the plug fixes your problem thank kyle
