Yes, that would help!!
Ok... I took it to the dealership to have it checked out and they told me I had 3 bad injectors, my ficm wasnt putting out enough voltage and my drivers side head gasket was starting to leak. So I was online looking and found a site where a ford technician was doing a video on diesels and how they hammer when you first start and the test procedure they do. 1 of the things he Suggested was putting a new ficm in because its not always the injectors, so I bought a 58V super swamps ficm and it started great!!! My sons truck broke down so I let him drive to work. Well it ran out of fluid and overheated he drove it home and it sat overnight. The next morning I put coolant in and after a couple of seconds it started running rough and blowing water out the tail pipe. I shut it of and left it sit a while drained out the fluid and went to start it again to try and dry everything, well it hydro locked on me, so I thought I could bump it over and try and try and push the water back out.... Well that worked but I wound up with water in my oil.
Unfortunately I found out that was NOT the right way. I don't have a lot of experience with diesels.
I do have a 7.3L for free complete with computer and wiring harness, would it be cheaper to fix my 6.0 or put the 7.3 in?? I think I might fix my 6.0. Any and all advice will be appreciated!!!!
