Yes, it is a 06 F250 with thew 6.0 No mods to date and it has 166,000 miles. I had to trade in my 09 F350 with the 6.4 a few months back due to slowing buisness, so I cant say it has never been tuned, but the Oasis report was clean. The new jug did have the sticker. Is there a way to move the thread to the other forum or do I need to start over? Thanks for your response.
If it had a clean oasis, and has 166,000 miles on it, and was a recent trade to the dealer, you need to check out your temps.
No, i am not talking about those idiot-light gauges you have on the dash already. You need some REAL gauges to monitor/check your coolant temp and your oil temps. Those temperature readings are critical. They will tip you off to a serious problem before major engine damage can occur.
Reason why I am concerned for you is that many MANY 6.0's get traded in with a plugged oil cooler and a failed EGR cooler. The previous owner probably knew what was happening and decided to trade instead of fixing the problem. The new owner does not know what to look for and drives the truck. This can lead to head gasket failure.
There is a link in my signature line, "basic info" that will run down many things a new 6.0 owner should know, including what gauges are needed, why they are needed and what you are looking for.
The scangauge2 runs about $165 and is available at most autoparts stores. It will monitor the just about everything you want to monitor.
If, after getting your gauges on, you find that you too are a victim of someone trading in a problem, you could get the dealer to fix it while on warranty. If there was no warranty, there is another link in my signature that will walk you through an oil cooler/EGR cooler replacement.
