Problems after replacing egr cooler. 2004 6.0 f250

After replacing the egr cooler and oil cooler, the truck dies after it gets warm. I've read that it could be an eternal oil leak which is causing the fuel pump not to pump. If that is the case, is it something that was screwed up when replacing the egr cooler and oil cooler? Please help its my work truck.

How many miles since you had the truck apart? Does it just die at idle or when your driving? Can you give us moe info on your truck? Year? Mods?

I have put a couple hundred miles on it since it was tore apart. It is all pretty much stock except the egr cooler that was put in (bullet proof diesel). Right after i got it back it was not starting as fast (meaning i had to crank it for a couple of seconds before it started) so i replaced the fuel pressure regulator. That really didnt help. It drives fine when cool, but after it warms up it acts like it is running out of fuel and dies.

ipr is suspect do to the fact oil cooler was just done. that alone is enugh to warrent a look.
it can also cause long crank times and hard starting.

ok, so i guess it was the ipr that was replaced and the screen was gone. Is it possible that part of that old screen is still in there and clogging things up?

I'm lost with this, the screen was gone? but then you said it was there. If the old? screen was gone then I would say that it could be in the HPOP and that would be a problem.

See post #2 in here https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/9...-pressure.html

There is lots (a huge amount!) of useful information in the Tech Folder.

With the ECT at about 190 and stable the EOT should not be more than 15 degrees higher.

Replace your thermostat too! Water temp too low. Should be 190 minimum.

Your oil temp vs coolant temp variance (delta) is too high. Good luck with the wrenching! Take your time and lots of pictures.
