Had enough! 6.0 going down hill fast.

This truck has me on whits end. I deleted the EGR system 2 sundays ago. Time and Money are my worste enemies, besides the truck that takes my time and money. Friday I went to help a buddy out. The 1.5 mile trip to his house was fine, and no issues. When I went to start up and leave I notices a kind of (loping) whistle sound coming from the exhaust (03 with straight pipe). It usually has a real nice steady whistle. I put her in reverse and she stutters with 2 very small joltes that I noticed, but my girl friend didnt. She got out on the road, and felt, and for the most part sounded fine. About 4 miles up the road, I stopped at a stop sign. The truck "felt" fine, and the engine sounded fine, but I could slightly hear the huffing, lope sound in the whistle. It didnt seam to get worse, and either I got use to it, or it got better.... Saturday morning, the first thought when I woke up was to go see how she does. She fired right up, and got to the end of my driveway with the faint signs of the day before. I pulled out onto the highway and started her off easy. She spit and sputtered a little, and was rolling some nice black coal. I run an edge attitude with juice, and had it on "mileage" setting. I went about 3 or 4 miles and the smoking was easing off, and the sputtering wasnt noticable once you get going. Just take off, and stopping? I parked her and let her cool off to start putting my hands on every plug I could. Well she took to sick the next fire up. She cranks right up everytime. She always have a noticeable sputter of loping sound. She hasnt blew anymore smoke, and has not had a major loss of power until today. She did not move from her spot after the first test drive yesterday. I tested the FICM and it is good. I notice that when you crank the truck that the oil gauge is down like always, then comes up about 2 seconds of running just like she always does. That is when the sound starts? Today was also the first time I had anyone in the truck while I was under the hood. I am not a mechanic, but a broke guy trying to wing it. When the key was turned to the run position all the normal stuff cycled. Then around the fuel filter was a hissing, and pumping sound for about 20 extra seconds? Im not sure if that is normal or not? Idk where to go from here.

I don't know how many miles you have on it but they all seem to need rebuiding at 140-180K miles.

Check all the injector plugs. Make sure that you did not bent any of the pins when you put it all back together. I had the same problem and it took me a month to figure it out. I bent one of the pins just enough to have a weak injector. And to the last post... I have NEVER seen a 6.0 needing a rebuild at 140~180k I have witnessed MANY of them making it past 300k w/out problems. Delete the egr, stay away from tuners (or at least not run the hot tune all day every day just to roll coal.) don't boost it past 28 psi, and put a coolant filter to catch the casting sand in the block. Then it will be a better engine and last like a true diesel should.

I'm glad you guys make money off of ripping customers off that actually believe you.

I like the way ashvilleengine thinks. From now on even the slightest problem in a parking lot requires the whole thing needing to be repaved.

"No, simply restriping the lot won't work, we're going to have to repave it"

Its a 6.0 PSD...They always need rebuilding..

On a serious note, have you changed your fuel filters lately? If its chugging on tip in accel that would be a cause. You need to find out what the Fuel Pressure is also. It might be right, but without a IDS system to check the parameters all at once, you need to do it one at a time.

Granted there are a lot of 6.0 powerstrokes that are really good. We see the bad ones. Head gaskets blow a lot between 140-180K many times creating overheating problems which create other major issues. My own personal experience has been with my 2003 F-250 Lariet Crew Cab which had the engine replaced by Ford at 20K miles with a melted piston. At 25K it needed a new high pressure oil pump. By 36K miles it had been in many, many, different Ford Dealerships with a host of problems from blowing turbo hoses off to the whole top of my radiator blowing off. It was in the dealerships ONE DAY for EVERY 218 MILES. I sued Ford under the lemon law.
The 2005 F-350 dump truck was in the Ford Dealership so many times that we comained about having to pay the deductable so many times that it added up to thousands of dollars. They eventually told us that they didn't want to fix it anymore and told us to take it to a different dealership, which we did. At 100K miles we had some company offer us an extended warranty that we jumped on and it cost them $14,000 to replace the engine at 135,000 miles.
That's when we started the company so there would be a company who would supply a reasonably priced engine to those who did get a bad one!

Did you guys know that it's actually the overheating problems creating the Head gasket problems...



Clogged oil cooler not allowing coolant flow into the EGR cooler thus "everheating the EGR cooler" (flash boiling)

Resulting in a ruptured EGR cooler letting coolant into the cylinders and causing the head bolts to stretch and the head gaskets to blow.




That is the main problem in 6ohs... not the engines/blocks being bad
