2003-2007 6.0L Ford No Start / Hard Start / Runs Rough

If you own or operate a 2003-2005 6.0L Excursion, 2003-2007 6.0L Ford Super Duty, or 2004-2009 6.0L Ford E-350, E-450, E-550, read this useful information:

OC Diesel recognizes that some 2003-2005 6.0L Excursion, 2003-2007 6.0L Ford Super Duty, and 2004-2009 6.0L Ford E-350, E-450, E-550 series vehicles equipped with a 6.0L Ford diesel engine may experience no starts, hard starts or rough running when cold and may be accompanied with diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) P0611, P1378 and/ or all 8 injector circuit codes. These symptoms may lessen or disappear when the engine is warm. These conditions may be caused by the Fuel Injection Control Module (FICM) or injector spool valve sticking internally during cold engine operation.

OC Diesel takes a methodological approach in the matter to overcome what may be a very frustrating situation for you, the customer. With their highly qualified team technicians who have experience with every possible diagnosis/problem when it comes to the 6.0L Ford it is not a big task for OC Diesel Technicians to overcome a resolution to your problem.

In some cases the failed FICM module can cause diagnostic trouble codes related to injectors even when the injectors or injector wiring are not at fault. OC Diesel Technicians take measures in checking the FICM module for proper operation before evaluating injector operation or wiring issues. Be assured OC Diesel will diagnose and deliver the correct resolution to your annoying problem accurately and quickly.

Other possible causes of this problem exist from “stiction”.  These conditions are caused by the injector spool valve sticking internally during cold engine operation. Engine oil temperature can be improved by using the lightest possible specified weight oil during winter months. Call OC Diesel for advice in choosing the best possible fluid to utilize during these months of operation.
