Still problem

Alright i have no job and a kid on the way next month so i have no money. I was driving down the street Friday and my truck started to loose power and sounded like it was going to stall. So i put my foot in it and it stayed around 800rpm and was white smoking. So i took my foot off and it stalled. After i pushed it off the street i tried to start it up again.... Nothing. I have the 10k in it so i switched to the 2.2k because it helps it start by increasing fuel. When i did that it started but was still white smoking allot. I then took my foot off the gas and it stalled again. I got it towed home and it hasn't started since. I think the injectors are bad or maybe the fuel pump. I'm broke but any info would be nice.

Just replaced the CPS... still nothing. Looks like I'm loosing fuel out of a drain hose in the front passenger side of the engine. Any more help will be nice.

Okay the fuel leak is a leaking o-ring on the back of the fuel filter it's the fuel filter drain valve. Ceck to see if the FPR is shimmed if it is remove it and see if that helps.

If you have a friend with another Powerstroke see if you can borrow the IDM (Injector Drive Module) see if itll run then it sound like thats the problem. If its not that you can hook up a 5000 psi guage to one of the plugs in the cylinder head youll see the plugs inline with the two hoses that hook up to the cylinder heads it should pump up to at least 1500 psi to run id try the IDM first. The IDM is in the Drivers side fender you have to unbolt the plastic in the wheel well to get it out. On those trucks a IDM out of the older trucks will work. Best of luck to you

It's very rare that multiple injectors go out just so u know. It's either the IDM or maybe the IPR
