03 f250 icp sensor????

So... Yesterday I noticed that my coolant level looked a little low. When I cranked it yesterday I noticed some white smoke. Just on cold start. This morning I tried to check the egr valve, but couldn't get it to pop loose. ( my first thought was the egr cooler had cracked and was leaking coolant into the manifold). Not having time to fart with before work this morning, I brought it to ford and paid them the $100 diagnostic fee to check it out. They couldn't find a leak in the coolant system, but said it was loosing pressure. They recommended changing the degas bottle and cap. I went to advanced auto parts and bought a new cap for 4.99. Figured I would start there.

Ford also said they were getting an erratic code for the icp sensor and connector which they recommend I change. They want $800 for parts and labor.?.?.?. They said this caused the injectors to over fuel, creating the white smoke.

My question to you is, how big of a pain in the *** is it to change the sensor and connector on a 03" f250? What do I need to know about this process?

It's a pain to get the sensor unplugged and plugged back in but it's not an $800 job. If you get a long extension with a deep well socket and wobble joint, you can get to it fairly easily.

I watched a video on YouTube about changing the sensor. The tech had already taken off the heat shield and had a homemade tool to reach the socket he had put on the sensor. No info about the plug or the connector. Some more info, a video would be big help, about chaining the connector, etc.

Pull the FICM out and remove the very back stud out of the drivers side of intake manifold. Unplug the ICP and IPR and pull the harness out so you can get to it. Cut the old harness off and splice in new harness. You can find the ICP sensor and new pigtail on Ebay for $100-$110 with free shipping.
