6.0 spin over but no fire

I am working on a 6.0 psd and i have no scan tool which is a bad idea. I do how ever have one of them cheap ones from autozone to read codes and all but there are no engine codes stored. the truck is spinning over and acts like it wants to crank after u spin on it for a good 15 seconds but it just wont take off. Im thinking that maybe the ficm is bad. would u guys happen to be able to tell me if there is a way to check it without haveing the scan tool. Or anything eles that it may could be. The customer has told me the turbo has been replaced 5 months ago. other then that them are the only details i no of the truck


also according to the oil pressure gauge it is making oil pressure but i am not sure how much pressure it takes for that gauge to read normal

Swamps diesel has a link that shows how to test the FICM. If it checks good, you'll be pulling your hair out trying to diagnose it without being able to monitor ICP and IPR. Also, check fuel pressure.

A lot less likely to be a HPO leak than if it was an 05 or newer but anything is possible. I've got an 03 here right now that I'm working on that is crank and no start. Waiting on an IPR socket to remove valve.

customer was complaining about no power when he dropped it off. And also if u rev on it smoke it coming from around the turbo area. So im trying to track that problem down also if you lay into it the truck hits 2 grand then slowey revs up from there which i figure that maybe part of the exhaust leak the truck has from around the turbo area

Up pipe is cracked. Look at the firewall and see if soot is present.

i dont see any soot there but i beilve that could be because as soon as customer notice it he limped it in. I unplugged the MAF so that it would be a little more smokey so that i could try to see where it was coming from. This was all at 11:00 tuesday night. He has left the truck with me so today i finally get the chance to work on it and cant get it to fire lol. Its maybe 50 some degress here in florida so i got to thinking that maybe the glowplug relay is bad. As my old 7.3 use to have a hell of a time to fire when it was cooler. But this one actully trys just acts as if its running out of fuel or something. Pulled the fuel filter turned the key and its filling with fuel so i beilve all that is good. Although i didnt not check fuel pressure. The fuel gauge says its out and the light is on but i checked the tank and it is full
