Hey Guys, I recently purchased a 2006 F250 RCLB 2WD with the 6.0 in it. I had read about the issues but it was a modern upgrade to my 1988 F150 which was falling apart (literally). It has 288,000 and change and ran great for 3 days since I purchased it. This morning, the fuel level dropped to E and Low Fuel Warning came on. I had read on here that its a common occurance and I knew the tank was near full. No worries. Got back in at lunchtime to grab something to eat, and it threw a CEL. I was going by advance anyways so I decided to stop and get it scanned (to avoid damaging anything) and here are the codes I got today:
P0683 Glowplug Control Module to Powertrain Control Module Communication
P0403 EGR Pressure Valve (may be worded poorly)
P0460 Fuel Level Sensor (Common issue I think)
P0562 Low System Voltage (This one confuses me, batteries seem fine)
The truck runs pretty well. Everything sounds pretty healthy except a noise like this one when its warm : Noise from under turbo (video)
both cold and warm starts are very good for a truck with this many miles (only turns over a few times until it hits). It doesn't smoke at all. It does have an issue after the codes, while coasting the truck will cut off, I know these engines "defuel" when you let off the pedal, but the truck engine complete quits running until you get back into the fuel.
What I really want to hear is "everything is going to be fine "
considering I beg borrowed and busted my hump to afford the truck. But more concerned with making sure I can get this stuff fixed correctly (and affordably) so the truck last a little while (part of the money for the truck was a gift from my parents, the truck is sort of sentimental in that respect).
Any ideas on where I should start? I am new to diesel but I am mechanically adept and learn quickly.
