6.0 Running Rough

Hey guys the past two mornings my truck has been running rough after start up. Feels like the motor is going to fall out, RPM gauge bouncing all over the place, puffing black smoke. I used my SCT and got a shoping list long of error codes; P0261,264,267,270,273,276,279,282,284,611,673. I did a little research and all things point to a FCIM replacement party. I havent done any formal tests on the fcim yet, but Im guessing its time. Any thoughts?

Load test the batteries, then test the FICM and see where that brings you. Is what I'm thinking.

The batteries are probably fine but I'd suggest load testing them anyway, you never know until you check... then test the FICM.

I repaired my FICM myself. Took less than 2 hours for entire job. Cost me nothing and truck runs perfect now.

You could do that or send it to Ed at FICMrepair. Many people very pleased with his work.
