6.0 shutting off, no codes

hey guys I'm new on here. i came here looking for your guy's help on a little issue with my truck. i have a 2003 f-250 with the 6.0. I've noticed a lot of 6.0 owners have problems with their truck randomly turning off. mine was doing it a lot about a year ago and stopped doing it. then on the way to work last week it shut off getting off the freeway and i almost t-boned a mini van. I've noticed others talking about different codes that their trucks were throwing when this happens. well the kicker to this is my truck doesn't throw any codes at all, any ideas?

Does your accessories shut off as well? Could be hpop leak do you have a monitor? What did you use to read the codes, some readers do not pickup all the codes. Do you have an egr cooler and valve?

You need to monitor your icp and ficm voltage, you can pickup a scangauge at advanced auto for less than $200. Either it is the alternator, battery, ficm, high pressure oil leak, or a wire issue. The only options that makes sense is a hpop leak or ficm is starting to go, IMO. You need to monitor vital readings in order to properly isolate the problem.

Sounds like you are on the right track. How about fuel filters? Would not hurt to have them check your fuel pressure as well, just a suggestion. Keep us posted.

What does your RPM'S do? If engine shuts off while driving the engine will still be turning over giving you an rpm reading. My 6.0 had similar problem engine would just die while driving and it was random but truck would restart with no problems no codes. Ended up being the crank position sensor. It's located on passenger side of engine and a PITA to remove but it is possible to remove without pulling the A/C compressor. May be the cam position sensor but when mine went out i had a no start situation with no codes.
