Brand new engine 6.0 installed need help!!!
So i installed a rebuilt engine, and i can get it started and it will idol for at least 30 minutes, but then i go to drive it and 5 miles down the road it will start having problems getting up to 50 and then it will finally die. The first time it did this, i towed it home and the next weekend i opened the fuel bowl to hear a gush of air come out. I emptied the fuel bowl made sure diesel was coming threw and then put some mystic oil in the bowl itself. The damn thing fired right up ( i didn't drive it when i started it up), i went to break in the motor this weekend and again 5 miles down the road it did the same damn thing had problems getting up to 50 the 3rd time around for the break in process and then just died on me. I tried seeing if air was in the fuel bowl again but i didn't notice a gush of air this time so i put the cap back on and it cranked but didn't start. I did notice that the fuel bowl was extremely hot! Is it suppose to be? Lets see its an 03 F250 cc 6.0 with an egr delete and a turbo back 4 in straight piped. Anybody know what it might be? I was actually on my way to trade this truck in. If anyone in the Magnolia/ Plantersville, TX area has the AE software and would be willing to come out and read my truck, i would pay for your service ( or even the gas and some beer if you drink)i just cant afford the 360 right now.
Thanks in advance!!!
