Another 6.0 Failure

Hi Folks! I'm new here and searching for help with my 2005 6.0. It's got about 80,000 miles on it. After driving it for a while, it will start acting like it is out of gas, eventually stall out, and then won't restart. I can go back to it later (2-3 hours) and it will start right up.
Any ideas?
I have thought about everything from selling the truck at the local auction, to trading it, to putting a reman engine in it from J and K Engines, since they are located close to where I live and will actually do the work at their shop. I found two negative reviews on them, but that is all.
Any input will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Newtman

You have a High Pressure Oil Leak. Relatively common and not that big a deal. It certainly isn't anything that requires a new engine. Most likely stand pipes and dummy plugs will take care of you. Depending on the year of the truck maybe the STC fitting that connects the high pressure oil pump to the branch tubes. Less than $250 in parts. If you can't do the work yourself should be about $1200 to fix I would think.

What year truck do you have and where are you located? Maybe someone can recommend a good shop in your area.

My truck is a 2005. I'm located in Murfreesboro, TN. I talked to Full Force Diesel about checking my injectors this morning. They referred me to a guy named Davis, here locally. Full Force was of the same opinion as you - probably don't need a reman engine. Possibly o-rings, high pressure oil pump, or something else that would be more than a significant amount less $$$ than a reman engine.

Thanks,
