6.0 Cylinder fills with fuel, consistant raw fuel out the tailpipe
Any help would be appreciated. Truck was made 8- 2003
Truck has 486,000 on it (6.0) and when the truck sits for awhile it hardly cranks over because 1 (or more) cylinders fill with fuel. Fires up eventually after letting it sit.
Let it sit for 1 1/2 hours fuel does not get into the cylinder, and cranks up just fine since its not trying to compress a liquid. Still dumps raw fuel out the tailpipe
Raw fuel coming out the tailpipe all the time, but it runs and drives. Looks like white smoke and some black smoke mixed together. This is at a idle, did not bother revving it up. Guy i purchased it from says he just drove it back 250 miles getting 6mpg.
Engine oil is dark, not excessive, looks like normal used oil, does not smell like raw diesel, no fuel in crankcase from looking at it...
Slight miss, id have to spend more time with it to get all the particulars.
So, id asssssume it has a stuck open injector, or a bad o-ring on some injectors.
Could i pull the glow plugs and crank over the engine and see where it comes from to help pin point the bad injector??
Would the EGR cause the truck to dump raw fuel into the motor? Cracked intake manifold?
I do not have a scanner currently, can i use a horsepower box to try and pull codes? I have access to a hp box,,, superchips?
I also have a 7.3 psd with no issues, i am familiar with diesels, just not a whole lot with the 6.0 ....
Links, hyperlinks and plain english (no acronyms please)
I will buy someone a STEAK AND LOBSTER DINNER if we can fix it
Thanks for your guys help.
