6.0 cranks but no start

ok i have givin up with this truck i have a 2004 f350 6.0 with 200,000 miles on it, i was towing a car trailer up and down the mountains in ny state when she quit on me, i was coming down a steep hill and she shut down and i have not been able to get here to start up.

if i shoot it with starting fluid she will run soft until the starter fluid runs out. it is getting good fuel and pressure to the point of the water fuel separater next to the oil filter housing.

this truck has overheated in the spring pulling a trailer and it actually melted the spindle in the oil filter housing replaced water pump twice the fins on the water pump were gone on the second replacement which caused the over heat the second time about 1.5 months ago.

can anybody put me in the right direction with this engine to get it to run again

i want to get rid of it but it doesn't run so thats a major issue

Well with it getting that hot I think you need to change every o-ring in the oil system, the ones on the lines, plugs, up pipe etc. I would also think you may have damaged the o-rings on the injectors as well. With that much over heating I am amazed the head gaskets haven,t gone on you as well.

I feel your pain. Mine has left me stranded 3 times now. 118,000 mileson the OR. The last was 30 miles away from civilization with no cell service. I hate this truck. Ford told me that it was the ficm and a high pressure oil leak that was causing the problem.
$3 800.00. It would just crank and crank and crank but no start. As soon as I fix it she is gone. Ford should have recalled all these 6.0liters to fix the inherent little problems that seem to cost a fortune to fix. I may be done with Ford. I drove a borrowed 08 Dodge 3500 for a week. Pretty impressive.

just had the meltdown.

I was wondering what you had to do after the spindle melted odwn. I put it all back together and split the oil cooler cover. What what did you run into?

SELL the truck, all you are going to have is problems, little pieces of plastic are still in the system, they will clog up every where, the engine is shot after you over heat it. my truck has been sitting since november because nobody has figured out why i have no high oil pressure since it died on me again, this truck is a piece of s_it i will never ever buy a ford vehical ever again, i bought a chevy duramax that pulled that piece of crap home from the mountains in upstate new york to jersey like it was a feather, i will stick to my chevys for now learned my lesson
