6.0 gunk, A HOST OF PROBLEMS

Not sure what too do, but one thing is for sure, I WILL NEVER BUY FORD AGAIN, once i figure out a way out of this thing.

Problem 1: started blowing smoke, loading up, no power then would clean out and go like crazy

problem 2: was overheating, flushed coolant then replaced the t-stat,

Problem 3: started burning thru coolant and overheating again

problem 4: oil pressure dropped, a few times, then stalled and wont start...

problem 5: its an 05, not under warranty anymore

what to do?

all ready replaced hubs,brakes,rotors,tires,shocks,injectors
and i dont work this thing that hard... its gotta go... 4x4 electric button failed for a while, spent a ton of $$ and its a total 05 lariat lemon

i guessing head gasket, injectors, oil pump, etc...

not too sure if i should fix or scrap it? what type of cost for this work?

Sounds like you probably didn't have any gauges?

Sounds to me like another person who bought something they didn't research well enough.

If you overheated it multiple times and ran it till it wouldn't run anymore then it's probably toast.

More then likely you melted down the oil filter stand pipe. This usually happens when oil temps get over 300 degrees. You have now toasted all the everything in the engine that uses oil, like rod and main bearings, lifters, rocker, HPOP, injectors, turbo. Basically everything. Not to mention it probably put melted plastic thru the oil galleys now.

Pull the oil filter and look at the oil filter standpipe and see how it looks. If it's melted at all, congratulations, you know have a big pile of scrap for an engine. I would replace it with a junkyard engine.

Saddest thing about this is it was probably all from a ruptured EGR cooler, which you could have replaced with a delete for $150.

Hope you get it figured out.

Gotta do your research man. Nothing wrong with Ford, 45 minutes on the internet, you probably could have learned the cause and also how to fix everything that went wrong, or done some research prior to your purchase and made a much more educated purchase, or not bought based on the obvious signs of what was wrong with it. Sell it and get hosed, it's not worth much now, but somebody out there, or somebody on here will be more than happy to take it, put a motor in it and have a heck of a nice rig. All trucks are lemons if not maintained, diesel's aren't turn-key toys, especially not 6.0's.
