Oh lawd! It won't start!! STUMPED
I'm calling on the help of all of those wise folks of the 6.0 community! My truck is an '04 6.0 showing no codes. This last week it has randomly started dying while driving (mostly coasting when it happens) and dying while idling. We took everything apart yesterday to look for chaffing on wire harnesses or signs of wear and found nothing. Drove it fine afterward, didn't die. Figured it was okay and parked it. Went to start it this morning and it started twice and died. Left it and drove a different truck. Go to start it tonight and nothing...no so much as a click and my edge moniter won't connect. It hasn't moved!
So far tonight we have taken the pcm off and put it on another truck...it was fine.
Swapped ignition switches...also fine
checked all of the main engine grounds
voltage at starter was there and good and checked all fuses.
As of last time it started, it had 48.5 volts on ficm.
I'll add that several times when it died while driving, the water in fuel light came on briefly.
ANY IDEAS AT ALL??!!!
It spends a lot of time on the rollback
2004 6.0 F350 FX
AFE cold-air intake
Sinister EGR delete
Dieselsite coolant filter
6.4 Banjo Bolts
junk gold coolant
2 FICM (one replaced before I purchased)
some little transmission part (easy $16 fix)
IRP valve & HPOP
gasket on turbo
degas cap (easy fix $4)
no doubt there will be more to come...it is a 6.0
