Re: 6.0 Wont Start

I had the same problem. Its probably your FICM has died. Its pretty expensive part to replace but there is a few forums that explain how to test it. its located on the driver side valve cover.

Is it getting fuel? Take the filter off on the motor and turn the key, see if the bowl fills up.

Re: 6.0 Wont Start

Being an 04 and what i've seen in the past year id say your cam position sensor is bad $30-50 at the dealer and a half an hour to install. Before you invest a ton of money throwing parts at it find someone with a scanner or buy your self auto enginuity and find out what exactly is wrong. auto enginuity is like $350

Re: 6.0 Wont Start

did you bleed the air from the fuel system(the top filter) if not then that will cause a no start due to a air lock. loosen the top fuel filter cap and turn the key on to activate the fuel pump. helps if you have some help so that you don't spill fuel everywhere. thats where I would start. hope that helps.

Re: 6.0 Wont Start

its very easy to test the ficm, theres a lil cap that comes off with two allens. Soon as you take the cap off you will need a volt meter. If you have a 4 pin ficm Test the pin closer to the fender and should read 70 volt i believe? Then have someone start the truck, if your voltage drops will cranking you have a bad ficm

Did you ever get it running? Just happened to me. I have an 05. Apparently the 04 and 05 models had a design flaw in the High Pressure Oil Pump system. Any leak in the system tells the engine to shut down or not start. Very labor intensive. My job is $1,450.00. Had a crack in an oil libe and two leaking seals. My truck only had 40,000 miles but is a few months beyond the five year mark so no warranty.

Go to: Office of Defects Investigation (ODI), File A Safety Complaint and file a complaint against Ford. If we all do so NHTAS may issue a recall and force Ford to cover repairs.
