Can you help a dummy?

So my 05' 6.0 has been starting rough in the colorado mornings then runnin ok after it warmed a bit. For a while I thought it was stiction and added some Archoil. Well today it decided to not want to run after leaving a convenience store when it was up to normal operating temps. It would start then sputter and die. I just need a little help on what to look for tomorrow when I go to try and get it started again so I dont have to get it towed.

I noticed sometimes the injectors didnt seem to be cycling correctly when I turn the key to the run position and tonight they didnt seem to be cycling at all.

Check my FICM voltage at start up...I have a edge CTS and it wont turn on unless the truck is running for me to check the voltage. Im assuming its wired incorrectly or am I doing something wrong?

Harness rubbing.. Could this be the issue? I just read up on this and will inspect the harness in the morning.

Any help is appreciated



Low batteries...They show fine on my CTS and are only a couple months old. Could they cause this issue?

I dont know. Ill check tomorrow am.

My CTS wont even turn on until its running. Im going to check the fuses and then see if its wired correctly.

Im guessing if you guys turn your key forward the CTS turns on? My does NOT.

I have an SCT monitor myself and it will turn on and show data while cranking. I am pretty sure the edge does require the engine to be running.

Manually check your FICM voltage with a volt meter, that's how we did it before the monitors came out that would monitor them.

I would hook up the monitor and crank for no longer then about 25 seconds (to not burn up the starter) and see if you get more readings... cold mornings will do that, I live in Texas and when it gets cold my truck runs crappy till she warms up... just the nature of a diesel truck... I did have my ipr harness go bad and it caused the truck to just randomly spudder then die out so that may be something to look into

Would a stuck open EGR valve cause poor running and even kill the engine like its running out of fuel?

Its a bullet proof EGR...

BPD doesn't make a EGR valve, only the cooler. The cooler wouldn't have anything to do with a stuck open valve.
You may need a new valve. You could get one of these Ford 6.0 Diesel EGR Eliminator - Spool W/clamps - bolts & O-ring/gasket set-OEM | eBay and use it to "test" your EGR valve. Just keep the valve plugged in and hung on the side somewhere.

To answer your question, yes a stuck open valve can cause issues and even cause the engine to die at low RPM.
