Angry NEWBE PROBLEMS!

This is my first Diesel. Be easy on me now!~
I had "EGR" problems this past summer, while pulling our camper. FAILURE! White smoke billowed out right when I hit camp! The extended warranty company said~ "You are S.O.L." But the dealership took me under its wing! They fixed the problem. But 6 months later~ my Diesel is running horrible when cold. Seems to be running on half of the cylinders until warm. I have seen a puff of white again from the exhaust when getting on it.~~ I have let it sit for a few days now,,,, returned to give it a start,, now she wont even run...... Just cranks over, and over.......... What do ya's think????

Sounds like a classic FICM issue. Check your voltages. JJ

I typed in "how to check FICM powerstroke" and google was nice enough to give me this link!
Try it out sometime. lol. Jk, a lot of questions can be answered by going to google, typing your question with powerstroke at the end.
FICM voltage
Enjoy

Well,, done checking! The verdict is in! BAD FICM! The voltage reading dropped from 48 volts, to 14 when cranking! I Thank you guys for the help!!~ But, if I get an aftermarket FICM,, does this need to be flashed from a dealership? Should I try to repair this bad boy myself?? THIS FORUM ROCKS! Thanks for all the responses!!

If you are DECENT with a soldering gun then you can try it yourself.
OR give Swamps Diesel a call.
A lot of guys run their FICMS. And I will too once mine dies.

The only problem with you trying it yourself, is if you mess it up then you can't send it in and get a deposit back from them because Swamps will pay you
for your crappy one.
