Hard start after oil change and fuel filter change ++

Hey everyone here goes
I swapped out my rusted oil pan and did a oil change and fuel filter change.
Now the truck is giving me a hard time starting and when it starts it's barely running until it warms up good and then it's running like the injectors are all screwed up.. skipping and shaking I checked the FICM it's at 48 volts

If I drive someplace and let it sit for about 4 hours in 60 deg weather it will still start hard and have to let it warm up for a good while.

I made sure nothing got in the new pan when I was installing it also.

It also looks like the fuel filter cap on the motor might have a small crack going to pick one up Monday from the local Ford place

I had a crack in the filter cap and experience low power/ missing and air in the fuel but not so much slow starts. I would suspect something to do with the oil. Is the oil filter and cap both motorcraft? If you can monitor your engine, check your icp and ipr values to make sure you have good hpo- could have some garbage on the ipr screen

I do use Motorcraft stuff only but I might replace the oil filter again just to be safe, also what is everyone using to monitor there engine's.

And where Is the ipr screen and can it be cleaned

I'd try running some injector cleaner through the system before doing the dreaded injector change

Before I spent $2500.00 on injectors (knowing this started AFTER you changed out the oil pan) I'd drop in over at FTE and ask the same question as your OP......not taking anything away from the poster here but FTE has a bunch of experienced 6,0 owners that live there. Here's a link...Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums - Ford truck and SUV owners and enthusiasts Community And Information Source. I hope it works for ya. Scroll down to the 6.0 diesel forum and ask there for the quickest answers.
