Hey yall... new to these forums and they are amazing , so much info.
I been having problems with my truck, and noticed some others had same problems as me and i wanna post this thread to help people diagnose their trucks.
It begins: Got truck 4 weeks ago...1 week after pickup started idleing rough when cold..but once up to temp ran amazing...
-Truck got progressively Worse ..and would smoke when rough idling and have no power (couldn't even get out of driveway)
-last weekend drove 350+miles..parked it..next day drove to lake parked it..and
-MONDAY at 6 am went to go to work and TRUCK WOULD NOT START..been sitting all week since
-It would crank really fast , and sound like it wanted to fire, and puffs a TINY amount of black smoke..
I CHECKED- OIL, Fuel Filters, Water Seperator, FICM (48 Volts - on and cranking), Batteries, Emergency Fuel pump shut off switch.....Everthing ok...
I bought an OBD READER ($50),...I had ONE CODE (with NO check engine)
P2285 - Injector Control Pressure Sensor Circuit Low
Went to ford- Bought one for $150
Replaced it ..and erased code..
AND MAGICALLY - It didnt start
So today it is being hauled to ford - FML - lol
Just got this truck not even made first payment... I will post what is going on..and hopefully if anyone has these same problems this will help..
--Now i know why you need edge insight for monitoring and fuel pressure gauges..now it all makes since why diesels have **** load of gauges..helps you really pinpoint problems...im buying gauges if the bank is not broken today....
