I recently posted to engine 911 Forum Really Woulkd appreciate a Qualified Tech to Help steer Me Been trying to work out The Bug(s) The 6.0 is very nice when they are right but these have been Bears Lately!!!!!
03 6.0 Powerstrokes Both F-350 Automatic Transmissions
Truck #1 Fuel Mileage is 8.9 loaded towing Gooseneck Trailer. Empty 11.1 No trailer empty 11.5 at best!!! This one is still under warranty!! about 8000 Miles ago Hot starting problem High pressure Oil Pump, sensors, Oil feed Tube. 2200 miles ago put #5 injector in plus 4 and 6. 188 miles ago # 5 Bad again Plus 1 & 3. Towed it in Last Tuesday and now they say 2 and 8 Bad Plus fuel Pump has low fuel Pressure. They replaced the Fuel Pump at 94012 miles along with 2 and 8 injectors. I asked Ford to replace the remainder of the injectors to no avail.. Truck ran GREAT Lot of Power just like it had at 70,000 Miles seemed to even have some fuel economy(fuel gauge not dropping so fast) it began missing at 94143, and just about did not make it home?? Back at Ford at present they have not had time to Plug it up and check the Misses out. any ideas what else is going on??? or maybe just the Low fuel pressure from the pump took these injectors out??? how about the rest of the injectors ??Any reason for the POOR fuel economy??
Truck # 2 Loved it until 102,000 miles 4 injectors went out (not Bad if You figure it at one every 25K) more injectors at 122K 3 more 146784 4 injectors now 147096 two more dead, Correction 3 Bad and we replaced all of them that had never been changed for a total of 4. everything else now checks out OK. fuel pressure checks out OK and fuel filters are Good as well.
I was told No Bio so I try to not burn it unless I cannot get to another station and then Just enough. I use only quality fuel (I believe). I use power services fuel additives, I do Not let The trucks set and idle for more then 5-10 minutes, Regular 5000 Mile services as per My Service advisor done at my local FORD Dealer.
BY The way Neither one of them has ever had a chip or programmer put on them except for The Factory "flashes or reprogramming"
Thanks and Any advice would be appreciated.
