    There are many causes of problems with the 6.0L Diesel engine, but my first thought is with a loss of oil pressure to the high pressure oil pump from an issue with a branch tube that mounts to the pump. The high pressure oil pump drives the fuel injectors, and without great high pressure oil, your injectors will not fire well enough to run.
