Is there any reason you decided to replace those? Any codes? How many miles, any programmers or anything else on the truck?? More details...

I have done a lot to the truck and it still is not running. Here is the list I changed my FICM got the truck running for a little while then after changing the EGR cooler to a delete kit the truck stopped running again. I changed the IPR valve TWICE hoping it was the problem and the truck would start but only run about 10 minutes. It is like when the truck runs and the oil gets warm and thins out the truck shuts down. I am still not throwing any codes but have a ford mechanic friend that was running the computer on the truck so we could test the High pressure system we got 800 PSI on one side and 1000PSI on the other. We got the truck started and after a few minutes it ran great after we shut it down I asked him to try and start it again and it wouldnt it would only get 350 psi. I did an oil change and got the truck to run for 45 minutes sitting there at Idle then it shut down. The next day I took it out and it ran for about 5 minutes then I had to be towed home. I have the engine torn down now and I tested the High pressure system with air for leaks we heard something on both sides so put some oil dye in the system and put the air to it again. I have what looks like two leaks where the high pressure rail connects to the fuel injector. One on each side right the closest to the firewall. So just about everything has been replaced including the Cam sensor so any ideas from anyone because I have stumped the Ford Mechanic.

Up at wits end

i have a power stroke pro if you want to call and hit him with what you did and what it's not doing he will solve i am sure.
his name is Chris he works at Diesel Doctors in Georgetown his number is
Hope this helps

I removed the number for a couple reasons. You have no posts here and offered no help other than getting your buddy some side work who isn't even on the site or a paying sponsor. Another reason is, your buddy probably doesn't want all the spam phone calls he'll be getting with his number out in the interwebs.

Thanks, Mdub707.

Tryin' to learn something new every day!



You will definitely have to fix your high pressure oil leaks at the injectors first. The original kits can be had from the stealership for about $5.00 each.
Then do another pressure test and see if there are anymore leaks. Understand that the leak does not have to be very big. It is a pressure issue and not volume. Without a min of 500psi during crank, injectors will not fire and you will probably eventually throw icp, ipr or various injector codes unfilled the leaks are fixed.

Damn auto correct! That was supposed to say the "O ring" kits.
