in desperate need of help!!

so my problems began with an oil leak and fuel leak. installed new orings in hpop. checked to see if banjo bolt was loose at rear of lift pump and it was, so i figured that if i just tightened it, that this would fix the fuel leak. but while i was back there, i figured that i would changed the metal washers just because. so i did that and put it all back together. fired it up and it idled a little rough. fuel started leaking again. i attempted to drive it and it is running with no power and it sounds horrible. so i put in my edge evo to run the diagnostic scanner and it came up with: p-0603 pcm processer
keep alive memory
(kam) error
double checked to make sure all sensor were plugged back in.
is it possible that my pcm went out in the process? am i overlooking anything?
any ideas, suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated!

just read article on the IDM. is it the idm possibly since i had my hood cracked and it was raining hard? i read that if they get wet it makes the engine act like it is starving for fuel. and right now it is running so rough that it seems like it is starving for fuel. anyone?

P0603 Should have nothing to do with the rough idle. That is anormal code for programmed trucks. I have the evo also, my truck throws that code every time I pull them. It will also throw that if the batt.s have been disconnected.

I would clear the codes, start it up again and see what you get.

I probably can't help you more than tha, but well keep it bumped up for ya.

Is it leaking in the same place as before?

yes it is leaking in the same place, must just be a bad lift pump.? thanks for that answer on the code, i did have the bateries unplugged for a couple days while i was tearing stuff apart. i cleared the code and it did not come back. tried to start it today and it wont even act like it wants to start. it just turns over. rpm while cranking stay below 100. could it be the cps? does the cps make these trucks idle roughly?

i actually ended up using the ones i had because the diesel tech at the dealership said they were fine, and if i did want new ones i would have to order them, and i just didnt have that kind of time so i used what i had. any ideas?

they may look fine and most time we do reuse them but they are a soft washer that will squish into the imperfections of the fitting so maybe a new washer that was not yet pressed may seal it you should be able to track some down at any diesel repair shop or dealer like Cummings cat or detroit sometimes you can get them at auto parts or industrial supply places I would try that before the pump if you order from the dealer get the bolt too
