2006 6.0 hard start when warm?
I have a 60,000 mile F350 crew cab 4x4. Only mod is it has no muffler or cat and dumps out about 5 feet behind the down pipe (came that way).
It will start easily when cold then dies when it warms up.
I did the voltage test on the FICM... shows 48 volts at all times.
Through searching on here it sounds like I need the upgraded STC fitting kit.
Where is the best place and what part number is the STC kit.
Also what should I do while I have it apart?
Standpipe / dummy plug kit?
fuel pressure springs?
clean out the vgt vanes on the turbo?
I can pretty much take anything apart and reinstall it properly, but any help with a suggestions on what else to do would greatly be appreciated...
My mechanic friend is coming over with scan tools tonight to see what codes are showing up.
Oh yeah.. I do have a pretty sweet mod to start.. the license plate says
6LEAKER... made my day when it came in the mail.
Love my ford and cant wait to slowly build it up to the 6.0 monster she can be!
