    Ford F250 Power Stroke diesel won't start after running
    I have a 2005 f250 6.0 power stroke with 100,000 miles and until now have not had many problems. Turbo clamp blew off replaced clamp and turbo

    After I run the truck no matter how far or long it will not start until it sits for a few hours or I use stating fluid and sometimes that won't work, I leave it alone over night and it fires like new.

    Bought the truck with 30k. Chipped with banks. When truck started and while running it would blow blue smoke. Brought it to the dealer (Gordie Boucher in Kenosha, Wisconsin)and the answer they gave me "can not duplicate" Bull... The second to last time I had it in they told me they could not do anything because I had it chipped. I had them look it up and they saw that they sold it to me like that. So they said they had to wipe it out and restore factory codes. Again they said they "can not duplicate" Then the starting problem started happeneing 6 months later and kept getting worse. I took it in told me they fixed it I picked it up drove home stopped for a burger at BK (3 miles away) shut it down in the drive through so they could hear and it would not start. Took it back they kept it for 3 weeks told me the warrentee expired and the computer now all of a sudden was showing a code in the fimc but said that controls a number of things and might not be the problem. Now it is very bad. If this was a 7.3 It would be the camshaft sensoer.

    I think that the problem started with the blue smoke and progressed to this. If anyone can help with this PLEASE let me know... I do not have any computer equipment so I have to do this the old fasion way R and R If you need any more info I will try and provide it.
