Edge CTS Evolution or Insight for 6.0?
Hello all, I'm relatively new to the forum, and same can be said for owning my '06 6.0 (about 6 months now). I bought it to pull my camper and got a pretty good deal on it at 60K.
I read up as much on the truck as I could when we found it, but not as much as I have since... and I have read up extensively now on the EGR and oil cooler issues. My truck doesn't exhibit issues as a normal daily driver, but on a recent trip from Texas to New Mexico pulling my camper, it burped off a couple of times. Had Ford check it out there and their EGR cooler and oil cooler tests did not show problems- but, I'm skeptical. At this point I don't know if it's only partially blocked oil cooler, and/or head gaskets going. I don't ever see any white smoke, nor black for that matter. I love this truck, so I've decided not to be scared off by all of this I want to do what I can to take care of it's issues as I can. I've got a coolant filter on and have changed it once and found the sand, changing my fuel filters and oil on schedule. So my next step is to pick up an Edge CTS to monitor the parameters I need to (EGT, water temp, etc). Just wondering what most of you who have the Edge are using- Insight or Evolution? Looks to be a couple hundred dollars difference.
Thanks in advance. This is a very informative forum.
