Unhappy 06 6.0 missing or sluggish at 60mph

Hello,

I have a 2006 F250 and it runs good, idles good and don't smoke, but when I start up a grade or if I'm on the highway cruising about sixty and accellerate it will start to miss or sputter but then clears up. This is my first diesel and I don't know alot about them. I have cleaned the EGR valve and replaced the orings and gasket. Your help would be appreciated.

Ok so I just tried to take the erg valve out and clean it to see if that helped any and I can't get it out. Keep in mind I'm at work untill 8 am and am limited to the tools I carry every where and this is my only way home once get off and I didn't want to pry to much. In short is it supposed to just pull straight up to come out or is it ceased up and that's why its not coming out.

Ok this is a beast to get out. I used two small screw drivers to pry on each side of tabs. There is probably an easier way but I was limited to resources as well. Once I got it out I used carb cleaner,a small wire brush, and steel wool (fine) to polish it. Good luck !!!

Once the bolts are out and wiring removed, try and rotate the valve. If it turns you should be able to get it out. If you are worried about not being able to run the truck if you mess something up, you may want to pick up and o-ring and gasket kit for the valve just in case.

Once you get the valve to turn (confirming it is not really stuck), rotate the valve until the bolt holes no longer line up (not too much, maybe 1/8 - 1/4 of a turn). Now take some stout wire (I use rebar tie wire) and wind it through one bolt hole, around the valve, through the other bolt hole and make a nice loop about 6 inches above the valve. Now get a piece of 2x4 or something to protect your engine, and find a good place to lay it down as a point to pry on. Now get a pry bar (stout broom handle, long straight shovel, spud bar) and slip it through the loop and being careful to pull straight up you will be able to pop the valve loose. If the valve doesn't want to come free, the tie wire will break before you get too much force on the valve.

Be careful to not damage the orings when you clean the valve. Some cleaners (brake clean, carb clean) will cause the orings to swell and you will not be able to get the valve back in, so remove the orings first or have a spare set on hand.

I recently had issues with my 04 F250 6.0. Do a search online and i'm im getting prety nervous. I've even read that there is a class action lawsuit pending for these motors. I did a search and started a complaint with The Office of Defects Investigation. Hopefully something will make of all this mess. I will be following this...

I've lurked around for a few months and read the other posts. I haven't had any issues with my 6.0. You think I should check the fuel filter?? �������� lol

ninety5percent.......people have been complaining about 6.0's for at least nine years. If you want to own one, there are some basic things that have to be done to make them reliable, your efforts are better spent trying to learn about them, (then wasting your time filing complaints) to make it what you want. Start your own post with the most info you can give about your rig and everyone will be glad to help. And welcome.
