I do hope you get your issues resolved with your truck, but I must say, it's a small world. I seen you Sunday morning at Camping World. I noticed your Jayco and was thinking to myself, nice fiver.

We just rolled in a few hours ago from MB, we stayed at Lakewood. I had to run to CW Sunday morn for a sewer hose extension for our Rhino Flex hose. I was in a white Dodge 2500.

Sorry to hear of your troubles, glad you made it home ok and were able to quickly diagnose the issue. I would caution you about some of the FICM rebuilders out there. I have seen some comments on the forums about some of them not performing correct or quality repairs. I would suggest going to FTE or Powerstroke.org and asking around there before you send yours off if you haven't already.

Good luck on getting your FICM fixed. This is one of the things I monitor on my Edge Insight.

Oh, and for the record with proper care and feeding, the Ford SuperDuty with the 6.0 is not a good truck.... It is a GREAT truck.

Love my 6 point Oh!!!

Steve

Too bad neither recognized each other. Funny, I needed an extension as well but bought a non-Rhinoflex at the campground. We left Pirateland early on Sunday to try and beat any possible traffic. I felt horrible making repairs in the parking lot of a service facility (I know that they usually don't like that) but I did speak with a couple of the employees who told me no problem. I am a stickler with the maintenance on my truck (and camper) and was really surprised when the brake line let go. It rusted through in an area which could not be viewed so there was no way for me to know that it was coming.

I hope that it is just the FICM. I've ordered an exchange / upgrade from FICMrepair.com. 6.0 owners should bookmark the site in the event you run into a similar issue (not uncommon). Anyway along with the newer FICM, I am having a custom program installed which is supposed to give better throttle response and upto 2.5mpg more. I didn't opt for any program which will give more horsepower since I am more interested in reliability. It should arrive on Monday and hopefully the truck will be running shortly there after.

Had trouble with my old Dodge to trip to and back from Canada. We are 95% sure it's a weak fuel pump (5.9 gas). My frugal wife even said enough of this truck..
All the Ford diesel guy's do not like the 6.0, being in farm country these boys know diesels!

Dealer says High Pressure Oil Pump. Not the best news, but it should be back on Wednesday. Good news is I don't have to lose weight any more because my wallet is negative lbs. now!

Good truck since it got you home.

I had a good van once. Drove from NY to AL to attend my daughter's wedding. On the way back and fifty miles from NY i start hearing a metalic knocking sound. The van got us home but the engine completely died within a week and required rebuilding.
