6.0L Crack In Rear of Engine

My 06' F250 has 38k miles and the other day she just wouldn't start back up! I noticed some oil on the pas. side and it almost looked like it was coming from the bell housing. After closer inspection, and removal of almost everything, I've noticed a crack in what I'm assuming is the rear engine cover. It's on the pass. side right behind the heat shield and above the bell housing. Has anyone had the same thing or heard anything? Is that the bed plate? I'm really at a loss here any help or advise would be really appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

When the HPOP went out on mine, the fittings and manifold were beating around so hard it cracked the rear engine cover - so I had to wait a whole day extra to get the part in so I could get it fixed (while I was on vacation last year, too!). I originally took it in because it was hard to start or wouldn't start on occasion. Hope this isn't what happened to you...

cracked

Well I believe so but I could be wrong. It is on the Al. cover that appears to bolt on to the block. The bell housing is bolted to it and right where the crack is there is a bolt that looks like it is bolted to the cast block. If it would help I will crawl under and take some pics.!?

From what I understand, the bedplate that you ask about is at the bottom of the block, just above the oil pan. I would also hazzard to believe that what you are describing is the rear engine cover. IF, your HPOP went south and DID crack the rear engine cover, it should be covered on your 100k mile Ford issued Powerstroke engine warranty. If I'm wrong, I know I'll be corrected, the guys on here are great about that.

Sounds just like another catastrophic STC failure that blew it out far enough to crack the rear cover. Let's just hope the branch doesn't need to be replaced.

I just had this happen to my '06 F-350 PSD. I had a small leak dripping from what looked like the passenger side, above the starter. I was going to look into it the next day, but my truck took a S*** on me on the way home from work. Shut down at a red light and wouldn't start back up. I saw it pissed a ton of oil out and had to get it towed home. After further inspection I found a hole cracked in the rear engine cover directly above the bell housing. I'll try to get some pics up as soon as I can.

If any body has had this problem and fixed it, what must be done? I looks like I will have to remove the transfer case and transmission. Can this be done with floor jacks or do I need a trans jack? Thanks in advance for the help. This is the best forum out there. You guys are the best.

Photo of cracked rear engine cover

Here are some photos of my cracked rear engine cover on my 2006 6.0L PSD Lariat 4x4 crew cab extended bed.

I first removed the passenger side wheel splash guard (see 1st photo). The arrow indicates where I stuck my camera to get a good view of the crack.

The second photo is of the crack in the rear engine cover, directly above the transmission bell housing and under the exhaust pluming from the turbo and Y-pipe.

I hope these photos help. As I do my repair I will continue to take photos and do a complete write up on the process. I will either continue in this thread or start a new thread with the complete process. Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks, Stay S.A.F.E
