IPR

Howdy,
Had a fuel bowl drain valve leak, rebuilt the bowl and all went back together smooth. Now the problem; truck wont start, have fuel moving through the bowl (electric fuel pump swap) however I'm not getting fuel to the injectors. The plug on the IPR is very loose, could this mean a bad IPR? Truck ran fine to pull it into the garage. 97' f250.

If you're literally not getting fuel to the injectors, it's not a hydraulic problem. Still gotta be somewhere in the fuel system.

By "plug", do you mean the electrical connector to the IPR? Will it not connect any tighter?

Should have been more specific. The plastic housing one the magnet slides freely left and right. Also, I have fuel coming back through the return lines making me think IPR or HPOP.

IPR Connector is normal + my two cents

That type of IPR connection wiggle is normal.

My truck is the same way, I was a bit worried at first but it is a non issue.

First things first with a no-start:

1. Check the oil (give it a little extra oil - up to two quarts over is acceptable)

2. Plug the truck in if you have a block heater.

3. Find a diagnostic tool and get it hooked up to monintor ICP and IPR as well as fuel pulse width. (If you can't get a diagnostic tool, proceed to step 4. but be careful not to work your starter too hard before you come back to step 3.)

4. have a battery booster/charger hooked up to make sure the voltage stays up and the pcm doesn't cut out when you try and start it.

5. Cycle the ignition and listen for the fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator to make some noise.

6. Observe the exhaust. If the injectors are firing/trying to fire you will get the diesel smoke smell coming out the tail pipe.

7. If you get no diesel smoke smell, unplug the ICP and try again.

Post back with what you've tried so far and let us know what you observe.

Good luck,

Jon

Ruled out ICP by unplugging it to force use of default, not luck, no exhaust during or after turn over. Truck is sitting in a warm garage I know it it warm enough to start, and turns over well. Also since rebuilding the fuel bowl, I took it out once to see if there was a blockage I missed during the first removal and now my fuel filter light is on?

If you're getting fuel from the return lines, then fuel IS getting to the injectors (it's just not coming OUT of the injectors). As said above, best next step is to see what the PCM says about the hydraulics.

Check the fuse to the pcm. Sounds crazy but when the heater element in the fuel bowl shorted out it blew the fuse and the scanner wouldn't reconize. Mine is a 99 super duty. Just a thought, not sure if they are the same but I would bet there's still a fuse for the pcm and mine acted like it wasn't getting any fuel.

Went through fused last night, I removed the bowl heater last year due to that very problem. Have by buddy bringing his computer over to give it a shot again.
