Any diesel tech's care to chime in?
I put my 2006 6.0L in the shop yesterday for 2 problems. Small oil leak and extended crank time after sitting 12 hrs or more.
Here's the verdict.
2 small oil leaks found. 1 small leak at the O ring at the crankshaft sensor and 1 small oil leak at the cam sensor. Both o rings replaced and repaired under warranty.
Air leak found at high pressure oil pump. Installed some sort of bracket kit (don't have paper with me with the exact name). Repaired under warranty. Deductible cost $100.00
Lots of trash found in the fuel system and injectors needed cleaning and throttle body needed cleaning. I gave my permission to get this done b/c I know that the shops don't really make much money (or the diesel techs) on warranty work. (I did the same thing earlier this year when I had my oil cooler replaced under warranty, but I asked them to service my tranny for me. I could have done it myself).
Cost = $170.00
So, $278.00 later I will be keeping a real close eye on my rig to see if she's running better and if she is cranking like she ought to be.
