2004 Ford F250: we put the diesel additive for Ford..stalled..drive

Customer Question
I have a 2004 Ford...
I have a 2004 Ford F250 Deisel 6litre when I purchase a yr ago we had a little trouble with it running a little rough and stalling, we were told the OCM valve need replaced. Well then we put the deisel additive from Ford in it and shes been running good since. the other day she stalled out and now the engine shaped light is on and won't go off I drove it back to the house about 3 miles and have not started it since. what could it be the OCM it says in the manual that it is in the emissions system could this be the ocm setting this off?

Chris (aka- Moose) :

I believe you may have your letters mixed up, I ah ve never heard of a OCM, there is a PCM which is the vehicles computer. It is what controls everything and sees concerns requiring the check engine light to come on. The only way to know why the light is on is to hook it up to a scan tool and retrieve the codes stored. There are about 500 possible codes all of which mean different things and parts faulty.

Customer:

OCM is the oxygen control module that is one of the codes that came up a year ago on the diagnostic meter

Chris (aka- Moose) :

There is no such part on this vehicle called that. If it was repaired under warranty, withthe vin# XXXXX can see which part they installed.

Customer:

Well we never had it changed and it is a part that was recalled when the truck first came out and I don't know anything about it. I know I do not have any open recalls on my vin# So the diagnostic read unit can I purchase one at an auto store

Chris (aka- Moose) :

You can go to your local auto zone and purchase a scan tool or they will most likely read the codes for free.
Here is a copy paste from ford of every recall this vehicle has ever had, do you see the part here?
