here is the fuel presure specs and a few other possible things to check
When I first had the truck in my shop I did a buzz check on the injectors and they were fine. The fuel pump is coming on and running like its suppose to when cycling switch and the voltage to the fuel pump is correct. Where is the secondary fuel filter located?
If its on top of the engine next to the EGR valve, that's the one I took the cover off with the fuel filter inside of it. That's the one that has a trinkle of fuel coming out with white foam.
Thank you so much. When I get to work in the morning, I now know what the problem is. When this truck is off my back, I am DONE with 6.0 diesels.
How can I get back with you via just answer if I run into a problem tommorrow?
Sean - In regards XXXXX XXXXX 06 Ford f250, the fuel pressure was a little low so I replaced the fule pump. Ran a scan but had no codes. Thruck still won't run without ether. The previous codes (memory codes) are as follows...
1 1-8 injectors current low
2 EGR performance P0404
3 EGR throttle position
control circuit P0487
4 System voltage low P0562
5. FIC moduel preformance P0611
Can you help me again working with this information?
HERE ARE A FEW TESTS TO DO FOR THESE CODES
the ipr and the hpop are located in the rear top of the engine , very difficult to access
if you are going to do the ipr alone it is sometimes easier to replace from under the truck and reach over the trans bellhousing on the left side
Install the high-pressure oil pump cover and remaining bolts.
yes the #8 glow plug is in the right rear position
most commonly this may be a bad connection or a faulty glow plug control module
Poor Glow Plug ConnectionsMalfunctioning Glow Plug Control Module (GPCM)
yes most likley the actuator was not moving the vanes . this variable geometry turbo has been a nightmare on some of these trucks
here are a few tests to do
Sean - same truck new headaches. I changed out the EGR value and the truck runs better but not perfect. I have a hissing sound coming from the turbo at an idle. If I unplug the actuator the sound goes away until I replug it. Any ideas? Also I have the following codes...
P2263 TC/SC boost system performance
P1408 EGR flow out of range
P0299 TC/SC under boost
most commonly this is a dirty turbo , here is the tsb on it ,
To whom it may concern - This tech, Sean, is one awsome person. Just Answer you are lucky to have him with you. He helped me with a nightmare from hell and I WILL use him again in the future.
Sean - if this comes to you, please forward it to the site that you work for. Thank you for everything. Truck is now running great. Tommorrow, the glow plug. Again thank you so much. Just sent more money your way. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX and thank you.
Happy New Years
