truck going in to be fixed tomorrow

Err, not nuetered/fixed but repaired/fixed.Having it towed to Bulletproof Diesel for the head studs,heads, intake cleaned,their EGR cooler, and their oil cooler spin on filter.After all the stuff I have read on the EGR, oil cooler, and heads, their answer makes the most sense to me.Not cheap, but I should be good to go for a long time. Anyone have thoughts, ideas, or anything else that should be done while its apart? Oh plus they are going to fix why it won't start,I think it's an oil pressure issue.The truck is a 2004 F-350, made late in the year so it could be the HPOP snap on line, or who knows.

that was my impression when I took a tour of their shop. I was very impressed with it being clean, and everyone seemed to know 6.0's!

My suggestion is to have them flush the cooling system and switch it over to ELC coolant from Cat, Rotella, Fleetrite, or Zerex. Get rid of the silicates that cause the problem with clogging stuff at the source. It is good for 300k miles so it is basically a lifetime antifreeze that needs no additives.

ok, got my truck back yesterday, drove it 80 miles home.Runs like a champ! I have to say I am really impressed with Bullet Proof Diesel. I live 80 miles away and they kept me informed all the time. The truck has no finger prints, no new marks.All the work appears to be done first class.Before I took the truck Andrew showed me what was done and how and why. I got a Bullet Proof oil cooler and filter, one of their EGR coolers, new HPOP and line, plus a few more things they found as they went along. Oh ya, they fixed the FICM too.Where this wasnt cheap, I really feel it was a fair price. Before I took the truck in , the owner took me thru the shop and explained everything and answered all questions. I tryed to play dumb ( I do that well) and see if I got any smoke blew up any orifice. Didn't happen, just honest straight forward info.The shop is clean,in good order. In short, if anyone needs work and can get to the Mesa/Phoenix area I highly recommend this outfit! BulletProofDiesel - Darn-Near Bullet Proof Diesel Products for your 6.0
