Looking at a non-running truck

I've got a wild hair and i'm looking at a non-running 06 super cab short bed 4x4 XL F-250. 156,000 miles. Truck will not start, it turns over, but won't start. Oil is a little old, but no coolant in it. No oil in coolant either. A touch of residue like it spewed a tiny bit one time. Truck hasn't been cleaned up and doesn't show signs of major puking. Pulled the codes and it shows P0562, P2617, P2623. Only gets ICP up to 150psi when cranking, but the batteries are low and may be affecting it. ICM voltage was at .4 during cranking. Didn't see oil leaks, tranny or diff leaks... Egr is still there and it's not studded. Fuel is making it to the engine compartment filter, but it won't try to fire. FICM sits at 48.5 during cranking. Any ideas jump out at you guys? I read through a lot of the threads, but never really found what I was looking for... Truck has been sitting for a while now and the folks are ready to deal... So I'm hoping to possibly get it cheap and get it going. Just don't want to buy it and it need an overhaul... Thanks y'all!! I appreciate any advice y'all can offer!

If it is only getting ICP pressures of 150 psi you have a HPO leak. If you know how to fix it yourself and can get a deal on the truck then go for it. Hell you might be able to get it for cheap, get it running and turn around and sell if for a good profit.

By high pressure oil leak, are you thinking its the hpop itself or something associated with it? My hope is that I can pick it up cheap, fix it and have another 3/4 ton truck on my place. I appreciate your input!

Could be the pump. But most likely with the year of the truck the stc fitting on the back of the hpop failed or the dummy plugs and stand pipes are leaking or a combination of it all. If your sure you can get it cheap enough and fix it yourself I think it would be worth fixing and keeping it. As long as it only has a hpo leak causing the no start.

Is there any way to test those or do you just have to change them and see? How much is the fitting and the stands and pipes? I've got a shop and can do my own work, so that's not an issue... I really appreciate your help!

Standpipes are around $100-$120, dummy plugs are around $25-$50 and the stc fitting is around $50-$75.

You can test the system by applying 12v to the ipr valve to close it and stick a threaded fitting into the valve cover where the icp sensor goes (valve covers off is best idea) and apply shop air and listen for the gurgling sound of a leak.
