should have known better.....

Ok so I havent owned my 6.0 for more than 2 weeks and I should have known better....should have kept that 7.3....last week it would cut out throttle....just here and there....yesterday it did it and threw a check engine light....today I was on my way to the dealership I bought it at(used truck warranty) and it died....shut clear off....it was cutting out the whole way here and as I came off the highway exit it shut down....finally it did fire and right before it did it threw a TBC Fault.....whats going on with this thing seems kinda lazy, and the throttle kept giving out.....Im not too happy at the moment if you cant tell....any idea?

Dirty Fuel filters, FICM. Being an 06, it could be the STC fitting, or the dummy plugs. Ford has new updated parts to replace these though, and hopefully that warranty you have will cover them

Im sitting at the dealership right now.....waiting to hear the news...I had it scheduled for an axle seal that was bad when I got it, and the window washer motor wouldnt work.....those are easy fixes....Im just worried about the CEL and what is behind it.

I wouldn't lose faith in the truck. This might be the only problem you'll ever have....

Having said that... I'm glad you have a warranty.

Sounds like bad luck. At least you have a warranty. Some haven't been so lucky.

well I checked out the Oasis while I was sitting in the waiting room....the truck has NEVER had any repairs reported on the Oasis report in all 157,000 miles....what its doing is dumping fuel to the crankcase....guy is pretty sure its a stuck injector....the shutting down he said was caused by the fuel thinning the engine oil...it would cause a loss of pressure to drive the injectors which would make it shut down...the TBC fault he said is a trailer brake fault....if you crank a 6.0 long enough it throws the fault for some reason....he's seen them do it before....so they gave me my old truck back as a loaner, mine should be fixed by the end of the week.
