6.0 Cracked Block
Hello, I知 new to the forum and have question that I would like to ask. I知 fairly familiar with the powerstroke engines (not and expert by no means) and I have recently ran across a possible 6.0 issue that I have never heard of before and would like to ask if anyone else has seen or heard of it before. I did some searching of the site but could not find anything.
I recently got a call about an 06 F450 crew cab for sale with a blown engine. The truck belongs to a local contracting company and is fleet maintained by their shop. I looked at it and was surprised to find that the truck is in excellent condition (only one driver) other than the engine problem. In talking with their mechanic , the issue is that the engine will not start. He has replaced both the high and low pressure pumps but still can稚 get enough pressure. After monkeying around with it for a few days he just sent it to the local dealer, who doesn稚 have the better track record on diesels, but they somehow came to the conclusion that the block was cracked internally which was the cause of the low pressure.
For the price their asking, I知 probably going to buy the truck anyway, but I知 not so sure about the cracked block. Is this a 6.0 problem that I have just messed?
