I see no expert is helping you yet. I am not a diesel expert on here but I had a 2005 F350 with the 6.0 last year and I had a problem with the FICM, the voltages were low. I just bought the 1/2 shell for like $100 and it fixed it. Stopped smoking, too.

If you like, I will provide you with all the info I saved last year on that job. If not, I'll opt out and you can wait for Scott.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

MollyUSA

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.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
