Angry 6.0 wont crank unless using starting fluid

I have a 05 6.0 with 58k miles. It will not start unless I use starting fluid. It runs perfect, but when I try to crank it, it just keeps turnining over and won't start unless I spray starting fluid in it. I have installed new fuel filters, but did not help. Any ideas????

Have not checked for codes yet. Guess I will have to take it to a shop to do that.

No , but the batteries are about 3 months old. A friend has a 7.3 that wouldn't start and it was a cranking sensor that went bad. He did not try to use starting fluid to see if that would start it. . I was just wondering if anyone else has heard of that.

I have an 06 and had this problem the other day. Truck would crank fine but just wouldnt fire! Had to tow the truck to the dealer and got the HPOP o-ring replaced and a fuel injector pressure sensor! Works great now

I agree 100%. Look up Ford TSB article number 08-18-6 for further information that pertains to the very issue you are experiencing.

ill agree , high presure system leak, the starting fluid gets it spinning just fast enough to get pressure high enough to start
