Truck won't run

I just bought a 03 f350. Truck has a 6.0 litre engine and an auto tranny. It ran real good for the first month and a half, and now it won't run. I was running about 75 the other day, and all of the sudden my exhaust temp started going up, and the truck started to bog down. All the rest of the gauges were reading normal. I took it to the parts store and they put a code reader on it. It said the EGR valve needed replaced. I took it out and cleaned it. That was fun. Anyway, then my truck wouldn't start. It finally started, blew out a bunch of black smoke, and ran fine for about 15 minutes. I drove it down to the local convenience store, and it ran good. My son drove it around our yard, and it died, and won't restart. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Check the ICP sensor, and check all the wiring for chaffing.

Ok. This may make me sound stupid, but I don't know much about this truck. Or anything that doesn't have a carb. What's an ICP sensor? Where is it? What does it do? Please keep it simple. I'm still having problems understanding why I have a cold air intake system, and an EGR valve that puts warm air into my motor. And by the way. Thank you guys for all of your suggestions. Tomorrow I get to start looking into it again.

No problem, buddy! Quite a few of us started out in exactly that same boat. Don't feel intimidated in asking questions. We'll help out as much as we can. This forum is the best!

if you dont know much about diesels i would reccomend taking it in. This is going to be a high pressure oil system problem and diagnosis of it is going to be pretty technical and the repair may be very technical as well.
