Hello, when you get codes for all 8 injectors, this usually means that the FICM has failed. The Fuel injection control module is mounted on the driver side valve cover and must be programmed by the dealer when installed. Thanks

Yeah if this ficm is no good y after holding fuel peddle down for ten minutes does truck clear up and stop blowing black smoke and you r able to drive it.
Ford Mechanic: Dieseljunky2, Ford Mechanic replied 8 years ago

The FICM will usually only show symptoms at cold engine operation. Rarely does a failing FICM cause any warm engine driveability issues. Look at the chart below, measure the resistance in the connector cavity on the injectors. If none falls outside of these specs, the FICM is bad. This test should be done when the truck has cooled overnight to simulate your starting problem. Also, if you have a code P0611, this is an internal failure code for the FICM, that means it automatically failed the selftest and needs replacing. Thanks

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
