stange things need help please

Hello everyone ! my 04 f250 6.0 is doing some strange things! let me start by saying my truck has never given me an problems it has 186,000 miles original head bolts and head gaskets and still has egr installed on it. I went to lunch last Sunday and when I came out an hour later all it would do is turn over and not start! after a short while of cranking the batteries wore down. towed it home and put it on a 12 hour trickle charge. Tried to start truck same thing. switched charger over to 225 amps and the truck fired right up! Pulled both batteries and went to O'rileys and had them tested one would pass at 600 cranking amps but not 800 the other one would. So I bought 2 new battries and went home and installed them and still all the truck would do is turn over and not fire up. double check battery connections, check top fuel filter it was good and there was fuel in the filler housing drained water seperator and check filter it was good also filters have 5500 miles on them. check oil filter it was good and oil was in the filter housing also has 5500 miles on the Rotela T6 oil. I also turned the key on while I had the top fuel filter out to make sure fuel was getting to the housing and it was. truck would still not start. I left the truck alone for 6 days while on vacation when I got back I got in the truck and it fired right up better then it ever has !! I have so far put a 100 miles on the truck and running like a top ! so what gives here ? what did I miss ? going to change the oil and fuel filters this weekend ! I also checked the fuel shut off on the kick panel and it was good also. so any ideas here what should I be looking for ? I just need to get the tuck through another year and have plans to have the motor gone through turbo rebuilt and all these new updates for it like head studs ect.ect thanks for any light you can shed on this issue thanks Heath

My truck would start great cold but warm up it won't get enough oil pressure unless I would unhook my IPR sensor it would just turn over and over and noting

Re: stange things need help please

KVD I could completly understand that with the HPOP but I haven't had any more problems at all its starts great cold and hot now. I drove it for a 50 mile trip shut it off and it starts right back up no problems! in fact it startes better now with the new battries from O'rileys then it has ever started? Does a HPOP go out intermittently? for example it went out on me last Sunday now it is running fine but may go out in another month and progressively get worse as time goes by ? The way i understood it was when the HPOP went it , it went all at once or it would not start at all once the engine got hot it would not start back till it cooled off? Thank you for your reply also I'm lost with this problem because the truck is showing now signs of a problem at all now but i know their is one hidding somewhere

Re: stange things need help please

I know the FICM on the 6's don't like getting improper voltage / weak batteries

No you def tell when its going it. you would come with at least code with low voltage code you need a better scan tool like the one you use with lap top
