04 f350 6.0 broken ebp tube
I have a 2004 f350 with a 6.0 turbo diesel. The truck has aprox 66k miles on it.
On my driver side exhaust manifold there is a small tube that im told goes to the ebp sensor. The manifold is very rusty and the tube broke off right at the manifold. The dealer says the manifold must be replaced and that a new tube can not simply just be put in. they said the part the tube threads on to is broken right off. They told me this will be at least a $1k job including a new manifold, tube, labor, etc.. They also said there is a good chance some other tubes will break while trying to do it and also need to be replaced. The mechanic also told me its possible he may have to replace the passenger side manifold as well as there is a tube that runs between them and that may break while removing the one side... The mechanics suggestion was actually to not fix it and either drive it as it is or get rid of the truck before more stuff broke. He was not a fan of the 6.0 at all.
The whole thing sound weird to me.. Any suggestions? Seems like you should be able to drill out and/or retap the hole where that tube was and put a new fitting in..
