February 3, 2009My 04 6.0 would not start the other day, it would turn over but not fire up. Took it to a Mechanic who first replaced both filters and switch. It did not work, they then replaced the Fuel pump with a newer unit which requires a new wiring harness. This did not solve it either, so they then figured it was now getting fuel but the injectors were not firing. Finally, they are telling me that the IDM needs replacing which is around $800 for the part. Did the 2004 6.0''s have an IDM?

February 3, 2009Do yo mean FICM? fuel injection control module. I just had cold start problems with my 05 6.0. Dealer replaced the FICM and it runs and starts better than it ever did. The tech said you can get some rags real hot with water and wring them out, then pack them around the FICM, and the truck should start as usual.
Are you under 100k miles? mine was covered under warranty.
May 15, 2009When this occurs, will the check engine light come on? I live in Georgia so it was not cold and it took forever for my truck to start then the check engine light came on. I have an 06 6.0
May 15, 2009When my 05 did this it was the High Pressure Oil pump.
June 9, 2009do you have to pay for all these parts that you dont need?
July 13, 2010Wow I was just about to start a thread on this kinda. I just bought an `07 with 65000 miles on it and have had hot start problems. Only had it 2 days....ask Jason, but they found the problem ( I live on L.I.N.Y. so I brought it to a local dealer ). The HPOP has a leak ( new to diesels---be patient ). They said give them a few days to fix it. Under warranty.
Hope this all works out for me. I`m excited to own a diesel.....and can`t wait for " The Glen " next year Jason!
July 13, 2010^^^ phil make sure they put in the upgraded HPOP elbow kit. although thats probably whats leaking so they should do it without saying. Have to do some exhaust on that thing too!
lol and this thread is over 1 year old, I wonder how he made out
July 14, 2010Wow....didn`t even see that. I just chimed in!
Trying for tires then exhaust. I`m partial to Nittos these days.
July 15, 2010What`s the "HPOP"? I`m new to diesel too...Only made two payments so far on my `07 crew lariat...anything I need to know? Build-date is 12/06...
July 15, 2010My build date is 12/06 too. High Pressure Oil Pump. Mine`s leaking somewhere and it makes it hard for the truck to start when it`s hot. Cold no problem. After about 2.5 hrs she will start again. It`s in the shop and I`m waiting patiently. 65,800 on her. Balance of factory warranty thankfully.
