Someone please help...

Ok, long story short I bought an 01 f-250 6 speed that had been sitting for 9 months this past October (October 2012). When I bought the truck, the P/O had not started/ran the truck in 9 months. It needed a bell housing, I got one put it in and the truck ran great for 3 days.

I was on the interstate, just cruising along and all of a sudden the truck just died. No weird noises, nothing, just died. I pulled over, turned the key and it fired right up. I shut the truck off once again to check something under the hood, got back in, and it would not fire. It would crank and crank and crank but nothing.

So, I took it to a local shop that works on diesels occasionally, they tried to figure out the problem. 3 weeks later I get a call, saying they have no idea whats wrong and a bill for $635 bucks.

I take the truck to another guy, he tried to get the truck to start on Ether, doesn't work. He says he cannot find the problem either and I get another $500 bill.

Now it has been nearly 3 months since the truck died on me. I talk to a buddy who is into diesels, he tells me to take it to the local "Powerstroke know it all", I get it towed to his shop, and it has been there since January 2013,



-Here is the rundown of everything that has been checked and or replaced since it has been out at the Powerstroke guy.


-IPR
-ICP
-Glow plug relay
-High pressure oil pump
-computer
-fuel pump
-glow plugs
-injectors

The powerstroke guy told me it is only making 330 lbs of fuel pressure and that it needs 470, can someone confirm this for me and/or have any other ideas of why it would not be making full pressure?


-Also, I ran the truck on about 4 gallons of the old diesel that had been sitting in the tank for 8 months, not sure if this would affect anything or not.

-And, 7 of the cylinders show 380 psi, while the last is only at 270-ish psi, not sure what to think about this either.

you have a bad CPS. that, and yes, you have one weak cylinder, but don't worry about it at this point.

If it is only making 330 pounds of oil pressure, you have some serious issues, being all the parts that control that have been replaced. Now, if you are making 330 lbs of fuel pressure, you are going to blow something apart. fuel pressure runs more around the 60 - 100psi range.

Change the cps, you get them at the dealer.. Cheap. And see what happens

first thing I'd do is pull and clean the FPR screen.....they might be checking the
fuel pressure ahead of it....
