My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

You wrote that you did injectors, HPOP, and fuel pump? When were these done? Why were they done?

Do you have a scanner to get a reading on the ICP pressure for desired and actual?

Was the IPR checked and/or replaced?

What does the ICP pressure show?

Why were the parts changed? What was the issue? I want to make sure there is nothing from before that could be causing the issue now.

Parts were changed because it was doing the same thing ...don't know icp pressure laptop at the shop
Expert:  Jeremy replied 1 year ago.

The ICP pressure is very important on these trucks. You may have done that work for nothing.

When you can, connect up and see what ICP is showing and the amount of IPR demanded. This will help a lot with diagnosing the pressures as to why you are losing and where. Either the oil pressure is dipping too low or the fuel which is causing the issue. This is obvious. Question is which one and that is where the monitoring will assist.

If when I do that an I hvno icp pressure what can it be
Expert:  Jeremy replied 1 year ago.

If you have none, then the pump you got is defective. You want 800 at crank, then you want to be no more than 20 to 40 lbs below desired. Anything more and the IPR is bad, a seal is rolled, or one of the injectors is bypassing.

There are many variables and that is why it is best to check the ICP pressure. It can give you a lot of insight as to why the pressure is not up high enough before swapping parts out. The IPR wasn;t done from the list you have and the issue may just be in it.

I see you viewed this and this is still showing as a open question due to no positive (3 stars or more) rating.

Did you still need assistance with this?
