I have a 05 F-350 6.0L turbo diesel No start. Replaced FICM. Checked high presure oil pump. Changed all sensors. Am lost. Next step is to put a oil presure Gage on high presure oil pump. System looked...

Check for fuel pressure at the primary fuel filter. there if you move the plug for the fan clutch you can see an auxillary plug on the filter housing facing forward and to the driver side. You should have 40+psi with key on. another way to check the pump is to listen for it to cycle on for 10 seconds or so after key on. Also check for lubricating oil pressure on the cluster gauge and then high pressure oil with a manual gauge. its needs to see around 600psi oil pressure to signal the injectors to fire. best way to check all of these is with a scanner that has data reading, which will also tell you if you have a bad ficm, ecm or sensor connection.

Fuelpump secondary circuit high. First try changing fuel filter, it is probably plugged which is over working your fuelpump. If filter was or is changed & problem persists will most likely need to change fuelpump.

Running rich and p0300 and 108

p0300 tells you the engine is missing .. the p0108 is the MAP sensor circuit .. MAP is "Manifold Absolute Pressure" or in simple terms it measures the vacuum in the intake manifold .. you could have a broken vacuum hose, bad power brake assist diaphram or other vacuum leak .. or you could just have a bad MAP sensor .. other less likely causes can be a timing belt slipped a cog ... listen for the hissing caused by a vacuum leak .. you can test the MAP sensor .. it should put out less than 2 volts idle and over 4 volts key on but engine not running (same for wide open throttle) .. if there is a vacuum leak then it will read high at idle .. if the sensor is bad the voltage may not change ..

94F-150 Tuuck loses power fuel pump or fuel presure regulator? I changed fuel filter last tuneup not to long ago.

My first guess would be ignition timing, or incorrectly gapped plugs, or faulty wires. Check your air filter. Check EGR . Check tranny fluid. It also could be faulty ignition coils.

97 gmc jimmy loseing fuel power

The first thing I would recommend is that you change your fuel filter and recheck your fuel pressure once you do that. If is persists I would check your fuel pressure regulator as well. A fuel pressure regulator for a 1997 GMC K2500 ran about $45.00 and a fuel filter runs about $7-10.00. That's a lot cheaper to go that route first than to have to spend $350.00 for a new (Lifetime Warrenty) fuel pump that comes with a new sock and sending unit.
