My 05 PSD will not start

Today my truck was running great. At an intersection it died, and would not start. The motor turns over well, and the batt's are new. It was not running rough or did not give me any indication of a problem. I did notice the anti-theft light was blinking slow twice in a row. I cycled the ignition and it stoped, but still no start. A few days ago the motor seemed to turn over more then usual before starting but it started fine. I am going to tow it to a dealership tomorrow, but if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Jason Payne

I'm no expert, so anyone else please chime in..............sounds like your STC fitting (Snap To Connect) on your HPOP (High Pressure Oil Pump) let go. If the fitting lets go, no high pressure oil gets to the injectors, so they don't fire. Instant Shutdown.

X2 sounds like the classic STC fitting problem. There is an upgraded part for it. If you're mechanically inclined you can do it yourself. It's more labor intensive than difficult.

So I had it towed to my dealer, and this is what they said and how much it's going to cost me. Please tell me if this sounds all correct and I am not taking it in the rear. Also if I have all this work done will my truck run great for another 100k or longer? Basically is it worth it?

1. STC fitting is blown out.
2. EGR Cooler needs to be replaced, leaking very bad they said.
3. Engine oil cooler is also bad and needs to be replaced.
4. Coolant flush will be done with all this
5. Complete oil change with filter and both fuel filter change.

Cost will be $2583.00

I feel like for that money my truck better run like a champ, and not need anything like this for another 100k.

Thanks for all the info,

Jason

It sounds like they know what the are doing to get the problems fixed although it would be nice if they would delete the EGR system for you... But I am sure they wont... How many miles are on the truck currently?

107k. Is it worth asking if they would?

I live where my truck is required to go through emmissions. Would the EGR delete mess up my emmissions or would I be safe? I will ask the dealer if they are able to do it, but I doubt it. Ooh well.

Buy a Bulletproof Diesel EGR Cooler and have them install that rather than the Ford part. Also if you are concerned about it being reliable Go buy 4 gallons of ELC coolant concentrate and have them use that instead of the Gold crap.

Then go buy you an Edge Insight so you can monitor you trucks systems.

It might help to read the links in my signature.
