Not all scanners will read the codes on the Power Strokes. I'd start by checking fuel pressure. After that, you're gonna have to have a way to monitor ICP and IPR.

Get it to someone with a real scanner and knows diesels. Dont worry about paying the fee to scan. It will likely save you money from replacing wrong parts in "the guessing game".
