FICM Issues

I took my 6.0 to my mechanic who has worked on my gas burners for years. It wouldnt start or anything and when it would it would die within seconds. It had been runnin rough when cold and rough to start for a couple months, he pulled the codes on her and said it was the FICM. I have read up on sending it off and getting it refurbed for about 250 there are also some people that do it for about 100 and they treat it like a computer mother board and try to fix it. Any tips or tricks, new to the forum and looking forward to learning alot about my first diesel

went through the same thing, notebookmechanix on ebay fixed mine for $70, i priority mailed it for $15, and it was back in 4 days. if you just want the quick, cheap, reliable fix, i'd recommend that route..

i tried the DIY, didn't work for me but its worked for many others. there's a nice pdf, like 16 pages or so, floating around the forums, try and dig it up if you want to try that route

next i would investigate why it went. if you have the strategy that has a hard heat induction, i would suggest having it rolled back through php. Look up power hungry performance on google and read around their site, they're highly recommended as well on this site

I have never had to use them (yet) but have read MANY good reviews about FICMrepair.com. Very knowledgeable and does not just do a quick fix, he upgrades parts also. Take a good look at him. Might also want to consider sending it to PHP to be tuned while it is out.

Swamp's can fix it for you and tune it at the same time. You may also want to try FICM Repair.com - Your Source for FICM Repair.
