2006 F 350 6.0 diesel hesitates, stutters when giving fuel around 1800 to 2400 rpm.

This problem is caused by a MAF sensor or even a clogged file pressure rail check both and if those aren't your problems then it could be bad diesel or your idle control is bad check all of the above and replace all if possible

My engine won't start.

The oil light began to flicker beacuse of low oil pressure with the lower RPM I expect. Four things for your engine to run: 1, Spark, 2, fuel 3, compression and lastly the timing.
While running at higher RPM how well (or poorly) does the engine run?
This may be as simple as a clogging fuel filter, low pressure = poor fuel stream which = poor performance.
May be the fuel pump failing too.
Other ideas; starved for air, very dirty air filter?
Also corld be crank, cam or MFA sensor too. Sart easy with the fuel filter and work from there.

If I may be of additional help, please let me know.

Engine stuttering

have you replaced your O2 censor yet? or changed your air filter lately. I know our avenger is pretty picky we had a dirty air filter once and it seemed like the O2 censor went out because it kept trying to shut off when the idle was lower. a new air filter did a bit for it then we got a censor reader that you plug into the brain box of the car or the cigarette lighter and it told us the O2 was out and our car was doing the low idle thing. after we fixed it no problems.

Have you checked your fuel pressure and volume? You may not be getting the ful sufficiently to the injectors. Also, change your fuel filter if you haven't already. Is the check engine light on?
