03 6.0 has a list of problems.

Well I bought a cheap 03 6.0 with 200k on it. When I first fired it up and ran it you could hear a slight miss and occasionally it would rev up slightly and if you took it to highway speeds it would stall out and once you stopped it would start right back up i read that a icp sensor can cause this so put one it snd it ran better so I drove about 2 Mile's before it stalled and a couple times before i decided to just pull it home. and the next morning it puffed white smoke and was hazing a little at idle but it smelled like fuel. i So I barrowed a genisys 2 and it wouldn't do much on it test wise but my ipr was 29% and icp was 760. I put a sensor on and tested fuel psi and its 53 at idle. The truck still has the egr and egr cooler so I was thinking a blown egr cooler so I tore it down and there is no sign of coolant in the cooler. But I have excess oil in the intake and intercooler tubes and the intake manifold is black with what looks like oil from the ccv I'm guessing the inlet on the heads is all wet as well. And after doing some digging I noticed the uppipe where it goes into the turbo was wet also along with the down pipe. And after even closer inspection I noticed that if you look in the pasenger uppipe where the egr cooler bolts to it and the uppipe is dry and It looks dry coming from that side. But if you look at the drivers side its visibly wet. What could cause the drivers side to leak oil or possibly coolant soot mixed into the uppipe? And could these be connected to getting a lot of oil from the ccv on the drivers side? Thanks

I think the oil comes from the vapors from the ccv on the drivers side. I'm not exactly positive but I think so. My manifold was black with oil and so was the tubes. I just cleaned them out and put it back together. I think the oil is vapors re condensing. And my trucks never smokes ever. The exhaust is super clean. So I think it's normal. I just did an emissions test on saturday and they make you do a dozen WOTs. No smoke at anytime was observed or they would have failed me. Hope my ramblings help some.

Yeah I knew about the ccv putting oil in but I have more then normal. And what realy baffles me is my up-pipe or y pipe and my exhaust downpipe being wet with oil or some other substance like coolant and soot mixed. And it only appears to be coming up the drivers side up pipe.
