2007 F350 6.0 l - check engine warning icon

Pulling my camper approx. 2 hrs on I- 95 & stopped at rest area & shut off engine. Started engine approx 15 min. later & check engine icon is lit & remains lit. Engine runs good, turbo boost appears good, no noticeable change in performance. Checking maint. manual it says to let the truck idle 5-10 mins after pulling at high speed. Did I screw something up when I shut the engine down?

Had similar issue with the 2011 6.7, it was erratic, come on for a day and off for a few days, then back on, took to Ford dealer (warranty) they replaced the EGR assy and solved the issue.
No idea if related to your case. But a quick scan at Ford will tell the story.

You need something to scan. A CEL is a major code. Get the Torque app or a ScanGaugeII to find something out.

Shouldn't have been the quick shutdown--lot of people drive the same way with no problems. As said above, have the codes read.

Thanks for the feedback. I was fortunate & found a ford certified master mechanic & he fixed me up. Problem centered around the EGR & found I had a fan clutch problem as well.

It's always the EGR with these 6.0's. Trust me, I have two (Excursion and Super Duty). Part of my once a year maintenance routine now is to pull the EGR valve and clean it to ensure the valve opens freely without sticking at all.

So far this has worked for me. Both my vehicles are still throwing the P0299 and P0299P so I still have some work to do...

I paid $75 twice at a diesel shop this year on a cold start issue. I could have saved $ by running by Advance Auto Parts or AutoZone and they would have read the same codes for free. That's my place to start with problems.

Call me cheap. Sometimes their diagnosis works, and sometimes it doesn't.

On those 6.0 I would replace the oil cooler as well. We had an 06 F350 SD and I had a mountain of issues with it.....thankfully all covered under the Ford extended warranty.
