Post Troubleshooting Thread

As many of us know, the 6.0 has several common weakpoints so I thought that it would be a good idea to start a thread about troubleshooting common problems of the 6.0 PLEASE HELP ME IN CREATING A LONGER LIST

Here are a few

Symptoms ------------------------- possible cause

puking coolant from degas bottle/ and or white smoke --- blown headgasket/overfilled degas bottle/clogged oil cooler
No start when hot --- problem with HPOP
Hard starting/ rough running when cold --- problem with FICM

Oil in coolant --- ruptured oil cooler
Engine surging --- low fuel pressure possibly caused by ICP/or EGR valve clogged with carbon
