I rebuilt an 05...

I rebuilt an 05 6.0 powerstroke, installed it in my 04 f350 and can't get it to run. It fires off then dies, won't stay running.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Built it myself. tried everything that I can think of.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of

What is the ICP pressure while cranking?

Have you checked the fuel pressure?

Does the FICM show SYNC when cranking?

Will the injectors complete a good buzz test?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
truck is 8/03 build. Engine is from an 05. original 04 front cover and oil pump installed, bypass valve cleaned. New cam installed, rings, bearings, 04 manifold modified by removing the rear crossover to clear the 05 hpop. IPR cycles and does it's job. Will not stay running on ether?????? New oil cooler. EGR cooler delete. Turbo disassembled, all internals replaced, unison ring and veins cleaned and move freely. Impeller spins freely while engine is cranking.

Have you tried a compression test?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no compression test yet. I had it towed to a shop who has been troubleshooting it. The starter is nearly blown out and needs to be replaced. When I get that done they can move forward with the compression testing.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I know all the bases need to be covered to eliminate all possibilities but what do you think could cause low or no compression in a new engine?

The rings may not be seating or the walls washed down and the oil rings not allowing compression to be made. I mentioned compression testing because you said it will not start on ether.

Your fuel is good, injectors are working, and the high-pressure oil system is up to enough pressure. It should be running.

Now when you put an engine together, it takes a darn long time to get all the air out of the oil and fuel system, but if you have cranked it till the starter has died, it should now be primed well enough.

Maybe adding a tablespoon of oil to each cylinder through the glow plug hole can get this thing to come to life.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris

Copy that. Thanks for the input. Looks like we need compression info to either put it to rest or find out it's actually the problem.

You are welcome

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.

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
