Things I need to replace Oil cooler, EGR delete, Stand pipes, Rail plugs ETC. Help!

I have a couple boxes of parts waiting to be installed into my 2004 6.0.

Oil stand pipes, Rail plugs, New injector o-rings. Then on the oil cooler half. New oil cooler, intake gaskets, egr delete, coolant filter, turbo oil feed tube and return tube.

Still have to get the 4 gallons of rotella, along with 3 gallons of ELC coolant, plus water and vc9 to flush the coolant the crap out so it doesn't mess up my new oil cooler. I should do this before the tear down right?

Trying to get a list of tools I need, thread locker, anything I need for the gaskets, anti seize, since I don't have any of my own and they will all be borrowed mostly from my dad's tools he keeps at work, gonnna hopefully start to tear it down come tomorrow. As well as tools I can borrow here from my Continental Airlines haha.

Anything I can use for help is greatly appreciated. I have the 6.0 bible on my laptop. Just wondering if anything more in depth would help. Any threads for reference are good too.

This will be my first time actually working on my own vehicle and on top of that doing some larger fixes. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Just finished up last night, but now I can't get the truck to turn over. Batteries where a bit low, so I charged them up. The only codes I'm blowing right now are 2 egr codes for my non existant egr. And a p0231 code.


It is cranking but not turning over. Any ideas? Too much air in my fuel lines or something?

Before lowering your new oil cooler into place, did you add almost a full quart to the HPOP reservoir (area under the screen)? If not it will take some extended crank times to fire it up.

After posting, I went and looked up your code.
P0231: Fuel Pump Relay Driver Circuit Failure.

Check that the fuel filter housing if filling with fuel when you turn the key on. (your gonna need a helper for that one)

Now that I didn't do. So just keep at it? Storming now. So I won't be able to mess with it for a bit.

P0231 Fuel Pump Fuel pump secondary circuit low Fuse, relay, inertia switch, fuel pump, open/short circuit. Would that by any chance cause an issue to starting her back up?

Yep, no fuel, no start. See above post about checking for fuel flow
Double check all the electrical connections you unplugged. I had a crapload of codes when I finished. Found that I did not get all the FICM plugs seated and locked in. Those plugs can be a royal pain in the arse.

Ya it was filling up fine, no idea what next. :/ Only plug I can think of is the plug for the EGR valve. I'll double check everything once this storm blows over.

Check your fuel reset button on the passenger side kick panel. When I did my egr delete and oil cooler I filled up the reservoir and it still wouldn't pop off so I pushed the fuel reset and it fired right up.

I'll have a look for that switch in a second.

Report back in a few!
