No Start after EGR and Oil Cooler
So I'm new to the forum and have scoured everywhere to find out what could be causing my "no start" issue but have gotten nowhere. I'll start off by saying I have a 2006 F-350 with about 65,000 miles. About a week ago I got the infamous "white smoke" so I came to the forums and decided to replace my EGR cooler and Oil Cooler. All went well and it was my EGR cooler that had failed as I filled the coolant ports with water and it was coming out of the exhaust chamber. Now to my new problem.
After reassembling everything, adding oil, and cycling the key 3 or 4 times for fuel, I turned the key once and it ran for all of 3 seconds and died. Cycled the key a couple more times, turned it over and it ran for a second, since then I have gotten nothing, not even any CEL Codes except for when I tried disconnecting the ICP Sensor to see if it would start. I also purchased an Insight CTS, so here's what I have:
ICP Volts: 0.2
Batteries have been fully charged, still nothing.
A few other side notes, when I took out the HPOP filter under the oil cooler, it was missing a screen, I do not know if I pushed the screen through or if it has been off for a while, but either way, I couldn't locate it. It was replaced with the new version.
I only put 15 quarts of oil in before my initial attempt to start, after some more reading I added about 2.5 more to get it to the center of dipstick.
It was running great before the EGR and Oil Cooler Replacement.
I am going to be removing the IPR valve this evening and see if it is clogged or if that piece of screen damaged it. I will post pictures regardless this evening.
In the meantime, I guess I'm just wondering what other ideas someone might have? I've read a few things about if you crank with the oil level low it could put air into the HPO system and that it could take 4-5 battery charges of attempted starts to get it out. Is there any truth to that statement?
I just find it strange that my ICP Volts/Pressure don't budge and I can't find anything that would cause this except for an IPR Failure or HPO system issue.
Thanks in advance for any help.
