Customer Question
Replaced ICM on Ford...

Replaced ICM on Ford Excursion 6.0 diesel wont start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

The batteries are on charge as thy are now flat terminals are ok. the vehicle was running rough then stopped running hence why I replaced the ICM.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Excursion?

2008

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Excursion yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes checked fuel going to injectors, checked both fuel filters replaced due to both were blocked fuel pressure is good, I am now looking at oil pressure as the injectors are controlled by oil pressure oil filter is very dirty about to change this.

You mentioned replacing the ICM. Are you referring to the Injector Driver Module?

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.
