P2552.......No start....Helpppp

Posted last week. Truck started running rough and eventually died. Had P0279 code for inj #7. Replaced the injector and now truck still won't start and has P2552 code. I've checked, rechecked and rechecked again the FICM plugs and pins. FICM test passes. 48.8V with key on and 48.2V while cranking. Doesn't appear to be any chafe spots on the harness anywhere.

I need help please guys.

Check your fuses. I overheard a conversation the other day about a fuel pre heat fuse that would keep the engine from starting.

Been reading and checking things all night. Pulled driver side batt cover off and found one of the PCM connectors backed out a touch. Secured and checked codes, all are cleared now but she still won't fire!!!!
Pulled secondary fuel filter and the cup is half full. I'm pretty lost at this point and I need this girl on the road.

I think you will need a live data scan and someone with FORD specific information.
My code base only says there is an intereption of signal from a monitoring circuit from the PCM to Ficm or vice versa. I have no info as to what parremeter is being monitored.

I can not say for certain if the code is relative to your contined no start problem or if it is something else. With a half full fuel filter you may want to check for combustion gas in the fuel system.

Sorry I can not be of better help. I think you will need to be read by a Ford IDS scanner.

There is a video on youtube for doing a bubble test. That might help track down the issue. Do a serach and I will try to find the link.

What was the condition of the old copper washer for the injector you replaced? What did you torque the hold-down to?

SD, also thinking on this one as well, Barring the bubble test, did you remove the frame rail filter for any reason? If so reload the filter/ snap it back into the cap. Lube the o-ring with WD-40/ what I use, and reinstall it. The fuel pump may have timed out??? You should not be able to catch your fingernail between the mating surface on the pump and the filter cap. The WD-40, I have found makes the whole process/ o-ring reseat/(MUCH MUCH) better??? Do you have fuel in the bowl after this??? Keep us updated.

You must get a full scanner and see what is wrong.
The fuel filter housing will not be full if you check 30 minutes or more after fuel pump has been run. It should be full if you check it immediately after key off. If you crank it over and then go unscrew the filter cap and you have vapors then you have combustion gases in fuel from tip seal leak and the gases going past the o ring into fuel feed area in injector hole in head. In the cases of this problem I've had a truck that would start , run rough and then quit when you loaded engine. Usually the side w/o injector leak will get fuel until the leak volume from loading pushes all fuel out of filter housing.
The rough running may be more telling than the #7 inj code.
You could have a sticking IPR or a number of HO oil system problems.

The old copper crush washer was smooth and clean. I didn't use a torque wrench on the hold down clamp. I work with wrenches everyday just not on trucks....I felt it was tight though there may be room for an arguement.
I changed my fuel filters when I did my head studs which was roughly 5K miles ago. Always put grease on the orings or motor oil for the ease of installation and to not tear gaskets/ orings.

Will perform bubble test when I get home from work and pull lower fuel filter. Just thinking....I did buy fords updated drain plug for the fuel filter assembly. Wonder if it backed out a little. Hmm.

sounds like you have an injector stuck open. In March I lost #7 (stuck open) replaced it, 50 miles later I lost #6 (stuck open) replaced it, 50 miles later lost #3 and #4, replaced all injectors then 100 miles later lost the fuel pump. I think I got a bad load of fuel in BFE Georgia on my way home from vacation.

You may have a similar situation going on.

The fuel filled the secondary fuel filter and spilled over while the engine was cranking.
Also found I have 0 PSI oil pressure with key on and while cranking... Started pulling oil rails back out to verify standpipe orings.
