Hello, you all. I'm new here, and it saddens me that this is my first thread.
In 2009, I ended-up stranded in San Francisco when 2 (of 4) standpipes in my '06 F250 6.0 Diesel failed.
In 2010, the EGR valve clogged, the other 2 standpipes failed, and the FICM died (all at about the same time).
Now, after running poorly for the past year, i'm not getting any low oil pressure, and it's being recommended that I get a new engine, as the clogged oil passage(s) that seem to be the culprit could be anywhere. It only has 140K miles on it.
A Ford dealership mistakenly diagnosed the problem as bad fuel injectors. The problem is obviously far more complicated than that.
Since the new engine (with the new head studs, BPD EGR and oil coolers) seems to make sense, does anyone here have experience with Jasper engines?
Although it may be sacrilege to say so on this forum, I now wish that i'd followed a few friends' advice and went with a Chevy Duramax, but it's too late for that. Also, i'd really like to see my F250 run dependably and get some good mileage out of it. Any comments or recommendations?
