What is the ICP sensor on a 6.0 Powerstroke?

6.0L Powerstroke ICP Sensor
It senses the pressure in the high-pressure oil system and reports back to the engine computer which in turn adjusts the IPR valve position to achieve the desired pressure for a particular desired engine speed and load. The ICP, ECM, and IPR form a closed loop feedback system.

Hereof, where is the ICP sensor on a 6.0 Powerstroke?

On 2003 and early 2004 model year 6.0L Power Stroke engines, the ICP sensor is located behind the turbocharger and beneath the turbocharger up-pipe collector (turbine inlet), fastened through the high pressure oil pump (HPOP) cover next to the IPR valve.

Likewise, what will a bad ICP sensor do? Engine misfires and decrease in power, acceleration, and fuel economy. A faulty sensor can throw off the fuel mixture and cause the engine to experience misfires, a loss in power and acceleration, a loss in fuel economy, and in some cases even stalling.

In this manner, what is the IPR sensor on a 6.0 Powerstroke?

The 6.0L PowerStroke engine uses an Injection Pressure Regulator (IPR) valve to control the output pressure of the high pressure oil pump. A faulty IPR valve can leave your 2005 to 2007 Ford Super Duty and 2005 Ford Excursion with power loss, poor idling and can even result in the engine stalling out.

Can you clean ICP sensor?

Yes, the ICP sensor is on the head, no real special tools needed, But If your refering to oil on the the IPR plug, it and the inside can get oily, if it's giving you problems it can be cleaned, and maybe work great again. It is definitely worth a try first.
