Just had Ford run Oasis on my 05 SD w/ 142k - WOW!

So I finally made the call to Ford today to have them run an Oasis report on the 2005 F250 ECSB 6.0 I bought last week. With it having nearly 142,000 miles on the odo and I guess after hearding/reading all the negative hype on the 6.0',s I was expecting to be read off a couple pages worth of repairs that had been done to the truck. The service guy pulls the report and says ok... boy, where to start on this thing, and I'm like great this thing has been a problem child since day one and it's gonna fly apart on me any day now...








2 minor recalls (nothing to do with the drivetrain) and an egr valve replacement back in 07 142k miles and NO egr cooler leaks, NO turbo issues, NO HPOP issues, NOTHING

I must say, I get more impressed with myself everyday for finding this truck for the price I did I just figured I'd throw that out there...

x2 from what I gather; either they had problems from the begining or they were fine. My truck really needs tires, so I guess I am going to worry about that first now instead of constantly worrying about egr problems...

Its either one helluva truck or everything crapped the bed after the warranty expired.

Mine was great to 100k. Hit that number about 2 years ago. Since that time:

1) 8 injectors
2) Head gaskets
3) 2 batteries
4) Alternator
5) FICM
6) Solenoid valve for 4x4
7) Hub seal (rear axle)

Still trying to find time to fix #6 and #7.

I'm not sure if I'd brag about running the stock oil cooler and egr cooler. The truck sounds like it was well taken care of, and that's great. But if the truck doesn't have a coolant filter, there are 2 kinds of 6.0 as far as I'm concerned. Those that have had the oil cooler and EGR cooler replaced, and those that will. See if you can get some live data on your EOT/ECT spread for your oil cooler health. If you're mechanically inclined u can easily do the job yourself. While you're at it update the HPOP fitting while it's apart and you'll be set! Sounds like it was well maintained and ran properly. That's HUGE and as long as you do the same you should have a great truck on your hands.

Good Deal Bud! I have had mine 3 years and drive the livin chit out of it everyday and I have had one issue, yep that's right one. The egr valve crapped out and was replaced. I love my 6.0 and I will drive it till the wheels fall off and stop put um back on and drive it some more!

Yeah I wasn't saying that I wasn't planning on doing the usual 6.0 stuff, but I'm just not as worried about it now as I was I guess. Like I said, the truck really needs tires, so I can do that first now and EGR delete will be next, and I'll be rebuilding the HPOP all that good stuff while Im in there as well

I've had my truck for a year, and still haven't had one pulled on it. Did it cost you anything to have it pulled?

Nope - I just called the Ford dealership here in Lakeland and asked to be transfered to the service department. They shot me over and the service guy put me on hold for a few minutes then came back on and just asked for the VIN. 30 seconds later and I had all the info I could use
