Exclamation block heater location 06 6.0 350sd

Just new to the forum today. Wondering if any of you guys know the exact location of the block heater cord on the 06 350 superduty 6.0? Having a turf time on cold startup and a slight hesitation under load sometimes. Cuz thinks its a symptom of possibly needing an aftermarket lift pump to ensure solid furl pressure. Any knowers on this?

The cord should be up front by the hook on the passengerside lay on the ground and look up it should be there tied up. Need to check fuel pressure 99% of the 6.0 are low on pressure get the reg spring and a fuel pressure gauge because prssure under 45lbs kills injectors and over 70-75lbs may blow injector o-ring. If you do not have gauges you need them and a coolant filter ASAP to remove the casting sand. Keep good batteries in it because low or weak batteries will kill the FICM cost $1100 to $1400 from ford or repair yours around $300.

Also, in 2005 and up, some trucks didn't come equipped with the heater cord, so you may or may not have the cord, but you will have the block heater.

That is not true about the psi over 75. But it does need to be over 45.

Sounds like my symptoms did. I needed a FICM. No more issues and I put the cord back in the garage. No more plug in!!

Bottom line, check your FICM volts ASAP.
