ok, I previously posted in the Engine911 forum and haven't gotten a response so ill try here....
I have a 2008 6.4 I purchased last year in February, drove the truck three days and the EGR cooler went out leaking coolant into the head and dropping two of the seats. My mechanic (powerstroke certified) has been slaving on this truck for the last 2 weeks, after lawyers fees, a $500 truck note every month, full coverage insurance (the bank says I need regardless??), and an extreme loss of trust from anybody, lets just say its slim pickins around here as far as money is concerned. He replaced all 8 injectors, ICP, new starter, all guides and seats in head, EGR delete, DPF delete and Spartan phalanx tuner installed... and now the truck wont start, we have been charging the batteries and trying to get it to start for 3 days with no luck. he told me this sometimes takes a while? we hooked it up yesterday to his 6.7 and finally got it to run for about 4 minutes. it gets better everyday, the first day it was barely trying to start and now its turning over normally, and then running for a couple minutes yesterday. Im new to this, and haven't ever experienced something like this nor do I know anyone besides my mechanic who has.
can anyone give me any advice on rather this is typically how this process works and how long it takes, or any other ideas as far as helping to get the truck running, ive been looking at it for a year and am itching to drive it! thanks!
