Hello my name is Scott
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Is the 2617 the only code being set? How long does it run before the stall?
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Does the engine rev up ok before it stalls?
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Let me know as much as you can about what has been done or tried, thanks Scott
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes it is the only code, it stalls after 5 min or so, I have a Scangauge on that truck and I have the "FMP" up on the gauge, the voltage is most of the time between 47.0 and 48.0. However it will dip down to 46.0 & 46.5 every once in awhile and a couple time I saw 54.5 flash up.

Are you talking about the MPWR pid for the fuel injectors from the FICM?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I believe it is the voltage reading from the FICM to the injectors, should it vary? Thats what I am suspect of, I was thinking the voltage dips and it stalls
Expert:  Scott W. replied 1 year ago.
Ok I see, usually the FICM will set a P0611 code for FICM performance when the FICM's go bad. I would lean more towards a crank sensor or the engine wiring harnes shorting out. When you get the engine running, try pushing down on the engine wiring harness on the drivers side top of intake manifold and see if the engine stalls, if it does you will need to repair the harness or replace it. If it doesn't stall, I would try a crank sensor first.

Also wiggle the harnes by the ICP sensor and see if the engine stalls also, over on passenger side valve cover.
