Common Problems and Info needed

Basically what the deal is i will possibly have a few 6.0 fords to work on. The problem is they all run like crap and i need to get them running good and trouble free to get them back to a good daily driver/work horse. I dont need any performance stuff unless its not costly and will help the truck run better and more reliable. What are common problems these 6.0 powerstrokes have and things to look for. What symptoms are caused by what things. I new to these trucks and need all the help i can get.

Thanks Kyle

Blows head gaskets, failed EGR cooler are the two main problems. Turbo and injector problems are common as well but that is from lack of maintenance.
