FICM PROBLEMS ON A 06

Well heres the story a good friend of mines son in law buys this 2006 f350 6.0 only got 65000 on it and a check engine light . Their story is it has a EGR delete and with that comes a light , so he's good with that and buys it as is . He's had this truck for 2 months now , after a few weeks its running not so well cold and some smoke he takes it to advance and has them scan it only code is a glow plug code . Another week goes by and running a little worse cold a more black smoke when cold . Well he takes it back to TED RUSSLE FORD IN KNOXVILLE TN where he bought it they check it out and tell him it needs a FICM and 8 injectors and if he pays 3500 they will pay the rest . Okay so my buddy Ed thinks i'am a 6.0 expert cause i have managed to kept mine running so they bring it to my house . I put my scan gauge on it and check the ficm volts and we have 40 then you rev it and she drops to low 30's , codes are PO 261 ,267 , 270 , 273 , 276 , 279 , 282 and theres a glow plug code which i'am not much worried about now . So he brings it over yesterday and this morning i check the ficm volts cold , start it up we are at 26 volts slightly rough idle and when you give it peddle won't rev and back smoke . So a pull the Ficm and find there is no rubber grommets , so someone has been in there before . I sent the FICM off this morning to Ed at ficmrepair.com for the basic . What y'alls opinion on this should the FICM fix it or do we have injector damage ? I told the boy we have to to the FICM first and then we will see about the injectors .

Sounds like a good plan David.

On another forum, FordDieselDoctor made the statement that a bad FICM would NOT damage injectors.

I wonder if the other Techs agree???

I think your on the right track, Ed is the man for sure, you might want to ck the batteries with a load tester and give them a good charge,after you get the FICM back ck the charging system to make sure it's up to par and think about upgrading the alt,that was the first mod I did on my truck. I got mine from Eagle Auto Electric on ebay and have been VERY satisfied with it so far, plus the price was in my budget

I call BULL**** on the truck needing eight new injectors. Replace the FICM and be done with it.

My ficm was running about the same when it was repaired, least volt reading was 24 volts. Its been fixed for about 5 months now and I have never had to replace an injector yet. I wish you the same luck.

It's stuff like this that gives dealerships a bad name. I would almost guarantee they knew exactly WTF (they thought) was wrong with that truck before it was sold. Either their diesel tech's are worthless or they're just trying to string him down the keep on paying trail.
