turbo out

51,000 miles on 6.7 F450 and the turbo went out. Replaced the lower fuel pump at 17,000 miles. Have had a dozen Ford diesels since 1984 and never had a turbo go out. I'm afraid when the warranty is done I may have to get rid of it. Sounds like everything is expensive in these 6.7's. Got a 2002 7.3 with 440,000 miles that I put injectors in at 410,000. Best motor Ford ever had was the 7.3. My 2 cents

Dumptruck? Ive replaced a couple turbos so far in dumptrucks. Great design dumps coolant into the crank case.

Could be worse, coulda popped an injector out of the head, supposedly other techs at other dealerships are reporting short blocks and complete engines allready finding missing injector and glow plug tips.

Its all relative. Everything in the 6.0s when they first came out were expensive. 6.4s everything still is expensive, 6.7s are so new replacement components are comming off the assembly line.

Flatbeds is what we have. I don't know what to expect for mileage on the 7.3. What ever I get from now on will be a bonus. I also have an 07 6.0 that has been nothing but trouble since I bought it. Bought the extended 200,000 mile warranty and have been using it.
I learn a lot from this website. I'm not a mechanic, but I read about everyone's problems. Also, I purchased the injectors from Swamps Diesel. Dave Armstrong of Swamps Diesel is also a member of this site. Thank you Powerstroke.org

6.0s are easy to fix though. As long as youve done head studs, egr delete or bullet proof cooler, coolant filter, stc fitting, run motor craft filters (fuel and oil) the only issues you should only have are injectors, turbo cleaning, stand pipe and dummy plug leaks.

Thanks guys! I have been reading a lot on the 6.0 and been tempted to do the procedures that need to be done. I'm still under warranty and that is the only reason it hasn't been done. What would it cost PowerstrokeTech82787 to do a complete like you suggested? Thanks again!

Id do it myself i get 50 an hour less than any shop or dealership and id turn the truck around in a week. Im guessing you own a tow fleet or have a body shop. The 6.0 cab i take them off its fast and easy to do the head studs. If you go to a dealership they charge you customer pay rate to do head studs or actual time. you pay for gaskets and labor. Where i work for a dealership id get the discount on gaskets and while im in there id change the stand pipes with the updated ones, along with the dummy plugs. Those you usually get 75k out of and the updated ones which are the same as what comes stock with the 4.5 LCFs, ive installed them and never seen the truck back for another high pressure oil leak. STC bracket on the back of the pump is like a quick disconnect fitting they usually wiggle lose i replace that with the bracket kit and o rings, that again after replacing doesnt come back for a high pressure oil leak concern.

If you have to run DOT inspection, id suggest the bullet proof egr cooler since some DOT officers here in ny like to put stops before bridges and tool booths like once a month and if they open the hood and find your egr cooler/egr valve is missing instant fine. i also change oil coolers while im in doing cash pay head gaskets warranty doesnt want to cover it unless you write it up for a severe failure etc... Ive installed the bullet proof egr cooler and havent seen 1 back for a failed one. Ive also installed sinister egr delete kits on lifted trucks with modifications out the ***.

Look online for prices on ARP head studs, Sinister EGR delete, Bullet Proof Diesel 6.0 Egr Cooler, and that will show the price of parts+shipping.

Like i said before you take care of those common engine failures before they become a failure, and all you have to deal with then are injectors, turbo cleanings, and ficm.
