Exclamation Weird question about no start?

Hello all long time no see, any way.....last year i had the dreaded no start when hot problem and had it fixed as of august and the truck was running great until now..... Last year I had the stc fitting, stand pipes, dumby plugs, and both of the sensors fixed, i even replaced one of the oil rails due to a tiny amount of air leaking out of that. Now the truck is right back to square one with not wanting to start after i shut it down?!?! Any ideas? Could the FICM cause the truck to do this?



****Here is another note..... (not to start a sob story) but currently am in a little bit of a financial bind due to rising medical bills with me being diagnosit with cancer. On that note is there any way to put a "baindaid" on the truck till i can get some money and get back on my feet? I had a wild idea that maybe a tuner could write a tune that would trick the sensors into thinking the truck had perfect oil pressure and start?? I really need to get my truck running again and just have no cash to get it fixed

thanks!

Sorry about your bad luck.
Before deciding it's an oil problem again, check your ICP when cranking. It should climb quickly to about 1800, but it'll start once it hits 600. If it climbs slowly or is under 600,you have a high pressure oil problem. If it's good, check FICM voltages (min 45, don't want anything under 47), fuel supply (remove secondary fuel filter and turn key on, bowl fills quickly and with no bubbles), and then low oil pressure system

Possible band aid is to start on starter fluids, but not advisable

Thanks for the info! I'll give her a try sometime this week when i feeling up to it. Should i start the truck first and go drive around and shut it off before i trying doing all this?
