Alright looking for some guidance from the old pro's around here on this one.
Truck is a sucker for cold start in CO where it's chilly.
163xxx miles on this thing
Replaced injectors that were failing.
Monitoring cumulative misfires on others via scan gauge. nothing showing weird.
FPR Replaced, GPCM replaced.
ECT within delta.
within range with EOT
@190 or so.
5w40 running through system.
Valve and cleaned it... didn't lube great going back in and had terrible black smoke on acceleration from stop... thought i broke an injector tip, read data from scan gauge, decided to pull again. Oring ripped going in and shard was stuck in the bottom of the housing on the valve.
New Oring kit, 5w40 to grease it in, no black smoke... ever. well, unless it's up over 3,000 rpm's for a second it'll puff black.
Drained fuel water seperator.
Changed FPR because of low pressure.
Cold start still an issue.
My FVP never drops below 47.5 KOEO
and at cranking
FMP at 12ish KOEO
FLP at 12ish KOEO
....FLP sits at 9 while cranking.
Before condemning the FICM
and pulling it ive read that this is the reading it's getting from batteries/alt.
My batt's are good, load tested, and per the scangauge my alt is reading good in charging as soon as those glow plugs kick off at start up.
Is that FICM
Logic Power enough to cause a no start?
Once started the delta between batt voltage and FLP will be greater than 2, and the FICM
Main Power is in line with that?
Before yanking FICM
off and sending it in does that sound like it's bad, or due to the fact that main power and logic power are off could it be something like delivery of batt voltage? if that was the case would the FICM
Voltage Power show similar results in underperformance from battery deliver? as of now it isn't.Seems like it's having no issue converting 12v to 48v for the FICM
Voltage Power, but the other two are straggling...
Both FMP and FLP come up after running for a few (plugs cycling off i assume) but for the period of 5-10 minutes they're way low.
Help me before i yank it off, ship it halfway across the country, and put it on to be frustrated that it didn't work...
