It wont cost you anything but your time to remove the valve covers, and see what stand pipes and dummy plugs it has. Sure, 6 0's have many possible leak points, but i cant tell yall how many trucks are still running around out there with old stand pipes and dummy plugs, causing no hot starts or long cranks. If they haven't been updated already, he will need to do it anyhow, and it very well could fix his whole issue.

I'll check to see if it does but I can't test anything as it starts. Truck has to be running for a second until CTS displays anything. Will the numbers while it's running help any?

It should power up with key on engine off.

Where are you located? If you're going to take it to a shop atleast give us the chance to point you to a repeatable person if we can.

It will power up with just the key but once you go to start it resets itself and by the time the truck is running it's finally on again.

Perfect, Kevin McGray is the man to go to if you didn't already know. I think he merged with another shop but just search up knuckle head diesel performance on fb

Kevin is a great guy, and if you get to the point of taking your truck to a shop I really wouldn't take it anywhere else especially since you're in that area.

I talked to him the other day and he's super backed up. Will it hurt it or be unreliable in drivability wile it has this problem, I don't drive it everyday but maybe usually on the weekends? Can you tell anything buy the ICP or IPR while at idle or is it during start up only?

I figured out how to start it with the gauges showing and it cranks @ 33% on IPR and 600 on ICP with no start and this was on a cool engine. Do I need to do it on a hot engine to get the correct results? If I cycle the key 2x it will start up every time, acts like it losses fuel pressure while sitting maybe?
