06 6.0 not starting

Ok so this is my sons 06 6.0 that has developed a problem this morning that has me scratchin my head. The temps here have been at -20 to -30 windchill he went out with it plugged in overnite cycled the key on and off twice and it started right up and ran for half hour. As he got in it to leave put it in reverse no throttle response at all. put it in drive nothing from the pedal either. back in park and still nothing. then it just all the sudden died and will not refire. just cranks. let it sit couple hours fired up ran for a minute died again and has since not refired. I figured pedal froze up or tps sensor but to no avail on getting it back up. Dont have my meter handy to test for failing output.
Help is appreciated.

Eric

Gelled fuel? You put any additives in your fuel to prevent it?

thats what I am thinking, he told me earlier he had not put anything in it. I told him we always run something in them year round but especially during the cold. I havent got over there yet to check the fuel filter and to get some treatment for it. just baffled by no throttle response from the pedal at all except when the truck was in neutral not even in park.

Check a few things if you've any type of scan/info tools. HPOP must be a minimum of 800psi to fire injectors. Might require higher,that number sticks in my mind tho. If FICM has never been dealt with, it may be time. Requires a min of 35 / 37 volts to energize injector solenoids. IPR should not read below 15% or above 85%. So many other things as well. Is the check engine light on ? Do you have any way to pull codes if it is.
Not saying it isn't your throttle sensor but that is the least likely piece of equipment to go belly up on a 6.0. Afraid there's no magic pill, just test and eliminate

Anti-gel will probably take care of the problem.

Yep it was what I thought pump filter completely gelled up. He does not live near me so with my work schedule at the shop it was hard for me to get to him. not to mention -30 windchills and plenty of blowing snow. so flushed it out put in new filters gel remover in the tank and all is good.
