Loses Power, quits when warm!

I know I know I have searched and read all there is about the 6.0 losing power. My EGR Cooler is bad I know that and leaks some, not a whole lot, but after a few weeks it is down on coolant.

Well just saturday I was coming home, bout 35 mins and probably 10 mins from home, it lost all power and when I came upon turning into the driveway it quit. Wouldn't restart until probably an hour or so later. And now, within 10-15 minutes of driving it gets warm and loses all power and wants to quit. It doesn't smoke after losing power and starts up just fine when cold.

So, HPOP, fuel filters, FICM? I have the EGR delete kit but was waiting for the weather to break before I put it in. I am going to pick up some filters tomorrow. I saw swamps post on checking the FICM, how about the HPOP? Is there any info out there on how to check it?

Thanks,
-Matt

Oh, the truck is an 03, 6.0 auto. Has a bullydog chip that I don't think works, an a jegs exhaust, K&N filter setup, has 280k on it. I bought it the way it is with what was spose to be bad head gaskets but figured it was just EGR considering it has run fine for the last 5k miles I have put on it.

Re: Loses Power, quits when warm!

Mainly I drive it still because I haven't had the time to pull it into my garage and do it. I drive a round trip of 5.5 miles from my house to my garage other than that it normally doesn't get driven unless I have to go somewhere when I don't have any other vehicles available. So, maybe once a week it sees anything further 20-30 miles. But I know that is no excuse just been really busy lately!

Onward,
It barely uses coolant, from "max" to "min" on the reservoir takes...maybe 3 weeks or more.
FICM I am going to check tomorrow
No blow by out the oil fill tube.
Starts right up when cold, cranks after it gets to temp and then shut off
How do you check the ICP?
And also I am thinking you guys have temp gauges for your coolant and engine oil in pods maybe? Only thing this has is an egt gauge.

I just bought it on a whim before winter started as my DD went down with head gasket issues when pushing it a little hard at 75psi. So I didnt want to dump a ton of money into this as I was looking to get rid of it soon as the weather broke and I fixed the EGR deal.

Re: Loses Power, quits when warm!

Check your ICP as was stated above. Sounds to me like your HPOP is done. Ive seen this many times and i bet if you pull your IPR valve out it also has a ton of metal contamination on the screen or has a hole in the screen.
