'06 Drinking diesel like crazy

First post, so please take it easy on me. My 06 6.0 is getting some pretty bad economy and I am having a tough time starting it. It started out as hard starts in the morning, but now is doing it even when the engine it's hot. The damn thing runs rough a hell until it's hot also.

I hope not, can I get that flashed, along with the ecm? I'm powerstroke retarded. My last truck wasn't a truck at all. I had a 2007 Jeep Wrangler with a full manual 4BT and 700R4. The only other motors I know are the International IDI 7.3'a and Cummins 12 valve's. If I sound a little slow, it's because I'm playing "knowledge catchup" haha.

By the way, is there a good diesel shop in the Colorado Springs area that would be willing to school me up in exchange for some free labor (clean the shop floor, clean parts, heavy lifting, bathrooms)? The Army trusts me to work on 34 million dollar aircraft, I think I can pick up on a 6.0l pretty quick.

i would say ficm... but i have not seen ficms cause hot start issues... i have however seen icp issues cause hot and cold start issues. i'd suspect an icp leak, icp is just a fancy way of saying high pressure oil used to open injectors. do you have access to a scan tool for monitoring pids? i should be posting an in depth post on icp here in the next few days as i notice alot of people have a hard time understanding exactly why it acts the way it does.

Sounds like injector o-rings or injector cups or something of that nature.

I'm taking the truck down to the Auto Craft center here on post today. New issue popped up this morning, I smell burnt oil. They have some super-duper-scan-diagnostic computer that I can use for free.

No fuel in my coolant. It is my injector pump! Yay, the most expensive component it could be ... Aside from a new motor.
