You know you own a 6.0...

So I loaded my stock trailer and truck to the gills and I'm moving to san antonio. I get up early and go fill up with diesel and while washing the window I notice a large puddle. I being a normal person beging to worry about what it could be.... I notice it is green and antifreeze. And then I'm like..... Oil cooler failed, little blue hose failed, head gaskets, egr cooler etc......after probably 3 mins of crapping my pants thinking what will I do I stop and think.... My truck dosent use green antifreeze... The coolant was where is should be so all is well. Now off to go give the truck a work out

So, have you seen a vehicle on the side of the road with steam coming out of it?

Have a safe trip. I, myself, will be traveling up to Portland, Or. today. Yes moving up there!

The only puddle I ever see under my truck comes from one of two things. People drooling over how good it looks or the condensation from the AC

I've had this truck for just over a month and the first weekend we were packing and moving so it had a trailer and it was flawless. I've heard and read tons of horror stories but I've never been stranded by either of my 6.0's. I do really miss my gauges... I wish I had goty them installed b4 I left. I always worry about crap... Reguardless. I hate walking!!! I bet she will do fine though.

When I got my truck, I had only put 46 miles on it, pulled up to the house and noticed a coolant smell, looked under the wheel well and saw melted frosty pouring out down the frame. BAM.... oil cooler took a crap!!! The dealership took care of everything and I was back on the road in no time and have had no issues since. I am always keeping an eye out and I don't want to see that frosty chit again!

My first 6.0 I smelt coolant.. The coolant bottle was cracked. I bought one filled her up and was on my way. 3 months later oil cooler. It was 3months from being out of warranty. Best $100 I spent at a dealer. This truck still has some warranty left so hopefully ill be covered
