Hole in oil filter cap.

I bought a 6.0 powerstroke cheap. The guy I got it from said it blew a hole in the oil filter cap. he started tearing into the truck. tore the intake, turbo and oil cooler out of it. said it was running fine when it blew a hole in the cap. ford dealer told him it was the motor. im guessing the dealer thought the same thing I did at first is it was the oil fill cap, but it is the filter cap that is bad.

from some reading I have done, I have not seen anything on this besides it just being a bad oil filter cap. and one heard anything like this? or have had this problem?

With a hole in the cap you will eventually pump all of the oil out of the engine. Without oil to lubricate and carry off heat generated by internal moveing engine parts those parts quit moveing, resulting in massive internal damage and a dead engine.

Sounds like there's a ton of pressure where it's not suppose to be . Put a new cap on and see what happens. Or start the truck and see how much pressure is there

If the cap was cracked it is entirely possible to blow the top or piece out of the filter housing and nothing else to be broken. You got it for a good price, replace the cap and put a monitor on the vehicle and see how it behaves.

The HPO not running the injectors would have helped prevent damage to the engine internals, but doesn't rule out internal damage.

thanks for the info. I'm hoping I can just put a cap in it and it be fine.

if it does end up needing a motor it will be getting a 12v with a built 47re. that's the main reason I bought the truck thinking it had a bad motor. but if I can fix it with just a oil filter cap, then ill try selling it.
