The Sweet Unit is down! UPDATE: She's Fixed!!!

Hey everyone. I think my FICM has finally given up the ghost. Unfortunately, I am in the middle of the woods on a camping trip and my truck won't start. Thanfully, I have plenty of supplies in the trailer, but we may be here a few extra days until I can get towed. Here are my symptoms:
  • Turns over
  • Gray smoke
  • Engine turns over faster, but never quite gets going
  • Wait to start light works
  • Did I mention gray smoke? (lots of it and smells like unburnt diesel)
  • batteries are both fully charged
  • Received 8 FICM codes off and on over the past several months
Unfortunately, I cannot confirm correct fuel pressures, but would assume everything is fine on that front due to the amount of gray smoke.
