Question about 2006 Ford F 350 Super Duty

1 Answer

I have a 2006 F350 Diesel with 140000 miles. Came out from work and wouldn't start. Cranks over but no start. Changed the batteries,fuel filters,oil filter and oil and was told it might be a high pressure oil pump located at the top of the engine. The part is almost 800 and labor I am being told is around 1200. What else should I look for before trying this expensive witch hunt?

On a 6.0 it is hard to tell with a enhanced scanner.but try this, when looking at engine from the front,on the left side on top of the head there is the high oil pressure sensor, unplug it and try to start the engine , if it starts the problem is the sensor,or try and see if the trip switch behind the right kick panel is tripped.At 140000 is oil was changer regularly it is most likely ok most likely then the regulator, but easy to find out with a scanner because it will show the prussure when cranking. maybe the cam sensor also. sorry to say could be many things. Good luck

I have 2006 f350 diesel it acts like it's not


wow....the sky is the limit here....i LOVE the 6.0, it pays my bills :)....with that said..there are many possiblities, almost too numerous to speak of...first, i assume you can hear the fuel pump?..try opening the upper fuel filter housing and turning on the ignition key, if filter bowl fills, good!...when you crank it, is it cranking above 500 rpm? thats the minimum needed to start, make sure batteries are strong. when cranking, can you see the oil presure guage rise? does it have the right oil in it? your fuel injectors are driven by high presure oil, without base pressure (what your dash guage would read) the high pressure system has no oil to drive injectors "power stroke". if you have base pressure you really need to have a computer on it to monitor high presure oil when cranking, will need 500 psi just to fier then would jump up from there...it is also possible the FICM, or fuel injection control module has failed..this too needs to be tested with computer, needs to read internal voltages to make sure has45 volts..now the ficm may be covered under emission waranties still...that truck did come with a 5 year 100,000 mile warranty on engine and some componetns are 6 years, based on state sold in...back to the high pressure oil system, in 06 the vehicle had awhat called a snap to connect fitting, or STC. that connects the high p[ressure oil pump to the branch tubes that supply oil to the injectors..that too can seperate with age and cause a no start...it would be in your best interest after chdecking the basics to see you dealer...in comparison the initial diagnosis would be cheap (in comparison) and effective if trying to repair on your own...it will save you much hair on your head!! good luck, hope this helps you...very hard if not impossible to diagnose these without compuiter on it!

Won't start but cranks has 300k miles. Check fuel pump working, replace glow plugs, checked fuses and relays, fuel pump won't come on but works hooked it direct to battery, wait to start light does not...


If you can't pull the codes from the pcm it has either died or lost it's ground assuming it has power. I would try to get a wiring diagram and check both the power and the ground for the computer itself, because it is what turns on the pump and the wait to start light.

2006 ford f350 deisel turns over wont start unless i use starting fluid it then runs great. changed fuel filter oil filter and oil, wrench symbol came on went into engine fail safe mode, said something...


the diesel engine is a 6.0L or a 6.4L? because the 6.0L don't use electronic throttle control. they control the demand of diesel threw the high pressure oil system they have a sensor call injector pressure regulator. this sensor is responsible of maintain the proper pressure in the high pressure oil system so that the engine could start . i also suggest you to check if it is any leak on the high pressure oil system or if the low pressure system is delivering the pressure required for the high pressure system to work properly. to do that you most have a scan tool. also you can check the pressure of the diesel pump that its in the chassis to eliminate the high pressure oil system as the cause of your concern. if u don't have the proper gauges to check the pressure of the diesel pump you could remove the cap of the small fuel filter that is next to the oil filter remove the filter and put the ignition switch in the on position and see in the container if you have a fast or slow filling. if you encounter that the filling is too slow then your problem is with the fuel diesel pump that is on the chassis this pump is called HFCM, Horizontal Fuel Control Module

Engine cut off, wouldn.t start 6.0


You need to flush your fuel system completely and get a new fuel filter.

1989 ford f350 diesel wont start


If the truck has good batteries and cranks well.--- There is a schrader valve on top of the fuel filter housing, (it looks like a tire stem valve) depress this valve while someone cranks the engine until you have fuel flowing out of this air bleeder valve. From that point, crank until it starts. Do not crank more than 30 Seconds, then let the starter motor rest. After you have this air out it usually startes in one or two tries.

When was the fuel filter last replaced? What precedded this no start condition? Was it running fine?

Agin, this truck must crank quickly in order to start

good luck

F350 2000 stalling and sputtering while driving after running a while or runs fine


Many possibilities:
Is it a Diesel?
Camshaft position sensor recall may cover it.
Gas or Diesel:
Fuel Pump and/or relay.
Fuel Filter.

Engine codes could help if Check Engine Light is on.
