Random 6.0 miss and no start after start up.
This is a little long winded but my '05 Ex which has been extremely good for me has all of a sudden developed a random, start, drive 20-50 feet out of my garage ,which I keep at about -5 C, then have a very slight miss, repeat that a couple times then it stalls with a no start. Cranks fine until the batteries are low at which time had it towed to dealer which looked at it the next day after charging the batteries back up and it started/ran just fine. They said no codes except for the usual EGR deleted codes which I've had for years, they said the batteries and charging system checked out ok. Bottom line, since it ran and drove fine for them they had no idea what it could be. Used my truck for some relatively short trips in town a few times over the last week with no issues then today the same slight miss a few times then stall and no start. Left it where it stalled but came back to it about an hour later and gave it a try. It started right away had one slight miss so a high idled it for a couple minutes then drove around the block. Did a slight miss continued on a few feet, slight miss, few feet more then a stall with a no start. Had no time to screw around with it right then but came back to it about six hours later to give it a try but batteries were too low after all that time with the 4ways on. Hooked up our other car up to the Ex and let it charge the batteries back up for about ten minutes. Turned the key and it fired up so I left it at high idle for fifteen minutes with no trace of a miss. After I had brought the Ex back from the dealer even though they said the batteries were ok I had it hooked up to a battery tender to keep the batteries topped up as I was thinking since I had not been doing very long trips lately that the batteries were maybe not getting fully charged and the engine was doing the missing and stalling thing because the glow plugs were not getting the proper voltage to give a sustained heat source for our -20C weather but having it on the charger all the time blew that idea out of the water. Fuel pressure and ICP is fine sooooo does anyone have any ideas as to what's wrong?
