6.0 hard to start or don't start at all sometimes!!

I have a 2006 F-350 that sometimes starts right up. Other times it takes forever or don't start at all. I had 4 injectors changed about 2 weeks ago. Anyone have any ideas what is wrong with it. Thanks.

Depending on which side valve cover had to come off, they may not have latched the FICM plugs down properly. Have seen this cause all kinds of crazy starting issues.

try unplugging your ICP sensor, its on the passenger side valve cover and looks kind of like an O2 sensor. if it starts better that may be it. you can get them pretty cheap on ebay. hard starts are the main hobby of the 6.0. good luck
