Here we go again 6.0L struggling to keep running.

Truck has been running fine, however today started having bad issues.

Today the weather here in Nebraska has finally turned to winter, high of 30 deg snowing a couple inches and wind blowing about 25 mph.

Had the truck ideling, and letting it warm up to head home from work. Began heading out and it sounded a little rough. Heading down the road it got rougher and no power to speak of, so let off the trottle to pull off the road and it died. Would not restart right away, but once it sat a few mins it will fire back up sounding decent. Only to start driving and get rougher and rougher and die again. This is the same thing that continues to happen. If it sits it will restart, sound best at this point in time....gets worse and dies.


Pulled codes off of the SCT to find a P0266,P0269, P0683....

would bad injectors cause these symptoms, I just dont get why it starts fine after sitting then gets rougher and dies

Sounds like fuel problem. Do you run bio-fuel if so it will gel in those temps.

Running normal fuel, and after this started up put a little bit of archoils fuel additive in.

Forgot to mention that fuel pressure gauge does not come off of 50 psi.

and when it was running on the way home pyro gauge never moved over 400, which if it is running like normal it is never even close to that low

P0266 Cylinder #2 Contribution/Balance
P0269 Cylinder #3 Contribution/Balance
P0683 Glow Plug Control Module to PCM Communication Circuit

I would start checking batteries (taking them out and load testing seperately)
What are you FICM Volts?
and maybe after all that move to the glow plug module.

How long before it start again? Combustion gases in the fuel rail?

O a few minutes of sitting and It will start, gunna try some new fuel filters tomorrow when the store opens and see how it works.

On another note about batteries, sct reads 14, alternator is making a little noise, perhaps bearing is going out?

Pretty hot right now!


Just went and picked up all new filters, stock and for the fass....

Changed out the fass filters and all was well, but when I pulled the cap on the stock filter I look inside only to see that my filter is in a bazillion pieces. It just fell apart. I am digging through records right now cause ford cant recall when they changed it last. Got it changed out and it ran great, I mean best its run in the past day, but it was short lived... only ran like that for about 10 mintues and now it barely runs at all.


Thinking that the pieces went through the rest of the fuel system and are now at injectors????
