Injectors

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could tell me why the 6.0 breaks stock injectors my truck is stock besides air intake but I broke one before I did the air intake. I have 72,000 miles on the truck and have had two injectors now, two egr valves and the turbo clogged. I drive like a granny 95% of the time.. What would cause this. I know the egr valve I need to delete but why do the injectors break.. Any info is welcome. Thanks Shelby

These trucks need to be driven opener up, letter rip. No short trips, always warm it up if cold out. 163k on mine, have only cleaned a sensor, cleaned turbo, just changed carrier bearing on drive shaft, normal maintance is very important. Use it don't abuse it. Great truck I don't plan on ever buying a gaser again. We'll maybe a F150 Raptor or Mustang would be fun.

Ford recommends oil every 5K NOT 7.5K miles.

Start there.

the dealer ship that i go to here in Springfield said for the 6.0 go every 7,500 miles and we have done that ever since we bought the truck back in 05.. the werid thing is, when my dad had the truck he never ran additives and never had a single problem but when i bought the truck from him, and started puting additives that the ford dealer ship told me to run, i have had problems. So im gona call them when i get out of school and see what i should do.. Thankfully it is still under warrenty for 19 more days

6.0 injectors don't last forever. My truck has had two of them replaced in 107,000 miles. Make sure you let it rip once in a while. These engines like to work. Babying it is going to make things clog up (like your turbo).

what oil are you running? Also as stated above, our trucks need to be aired out once a week, doing this will greatly help with injector life and egr soot build up.
