6.0 Powerstroke broken down

Hello my name is Ricky and I am new to this diselforums page. I have a 2004 Ford Powerstroke 6.0L with an Edge CS tuner, (should've gone with h&s) EGR Delete, CFM Largemouth Intake Elbow, AFE Power Stage 2 Air Intake and a 5" MBRP straightpipe. I have driven with all these things for about 15,000 miles now and just 2 weeks ago something has happened... So I'm driving around at night when all of a sudden my check gage light came on and I had no clue what was going on! I found out it ended up of being my oil pressure gage on my dash dropping to zero on idle but picking back up to normal when I hit on the gas. I didn't think it was much of a problem until the next day I try turning it on only to find out it didn't want to start... It would crank and crank, turn on for 1 second and immediately turn off! After the second or third try I would have full power and was able to drive anywhere. But it does start the same way every time i turn off the truck either its cold or hot. Crank crank..start.. turn off..and then crank again full power..
I thought over it myself and did a little bit of researching and thought it could be the icp sensor or ipr valve. It wasn't building up its pressure to start up the truck! I took it too my mechanic I've always taken it too and I'm not impressed this time! Its been sitting at their shop for 1 and a half weeks now and they cant find the damn problem!! He told me its not the icp or ipr or injectors... They think there is a leak somewhere either in the hpop, crankshaft, camshaft, cylinders, heads, or I don't know what else he said but its getting really annoying! Anyone have an idea of what might be going on or what the problem might be?! I would really appreciate it! I think I'm just going to pick it up since they're not doing anything about it and play it by year.. I need to get around!!! Maybe I'll just buy a new truck soon and bulletproof it completely the right way
HELPP!

Thanks for the reply and yes i have tried reading codes with either the edge and the mechanics scanners and nothing seems to pop up..
I know they're not the best, but I was dumb! Should've known earlier all the stuff that would be best for my truck now.. too late!
I have the Edge Evolution CS Diesel

I would get it out of that guys shop FAST!!

Take it to a Ford dealer that does a lot of work on diesels and have them hook it up to the IDS system and scan it over. They WILL find whats wrong, then its your choice as to weather you want to tackle it yourself or pay a fortune and have Ford do it. Most fixes on these engines are not that hard, they just take a lot of time. If you have a good set of tools and some general knowledge of engines you should be fine. Plus their are numerous wire-ups on here about "how to..." pretty much anything.

Get it out of that shop, take it to Ford and tell us what they say, but do not have them fix is until you check back here first. Sometimes you can't even trust the Ford dealer. Its sad but its true.

Check your grounds on the passenger side. Mine did the same thing.

My truck didn't throw any codes when the IPR valve went out. I was driving down the road and got on it a bit and it just died and wouldn't re-start for anything. Seeing that my ICP sensor was reading good and my truck already has StandPipes DummyPlugs and the updated STC fitting I decided to pull the IPR valve and sure enough it was damaged. Repalced it and the truck started right up!

Just see what Ford has to say and get back to us...

You might also want to get a Edge Insight CTS with EAS (Fuel PSI, and Pyro) for monitoring and an SCT X3 with Custom tunes. You will be amazed at the power! You hvae a good exhaust and the intake elbow is take it or leave it. As for the intake I would get an S&B to avoid dusting the turbo
