need help with 06 6.0 starting problem after hot soak

I have been told it is the cam sensor, but have read could be the wireing harness. But my idol is not right either floats down the comes back up.
The problem I had was, I drove it to a jobsite finished my work and then tried to start my truck, it would start but never reach full Idle wich is about .75 rpm but would start at .50 rpm then just go down till it died, did it like 6 times then started.. Am putting it in the shop Monday and want to know what to tell them to do... Any help would be greatly appreciated!!


well got it back Friday Morning, was told it was the ICP ( was told they changed the wiring to the sensor and the sensor also) has run great for this week.

to the org! That would be likely on a 7.3, but with the 6.0, your probably talking about a leaking seal on your HPOP. This is similar to what mine was doing and that's what it was. Here's a link to Marc's explanation.
