before i start, this is a general diesel thread. with that bein the case i searched and searched for a place for it and couldnt find the proper place. so i figured i would put it here cause i own a 6.0?lol so mods feel free to move it.
alright guys. im sellin my 6.0 because im tireed of it and want a more reliable diesel. now that doesnt mean im anti ford. i REALLY want a manual 7.3. but thats not the purpose of this thread. what im asking for is information from everbody about each diesel's problem. kind of like a pro and con to help decide which diesel would be the next choice for me and to help everyone understand the complications of each truck whether it be cummins, p stroke, or duramax. so ill start out with what i know
Cummins 5.9l -2nd gen- Cons
- Killer Dowel Pin
- Lift pumps are succeptable to faulting
- "53" blocks crack
- Death wobble due to easily worn out front ends.
Duramax 6.6l 2001-2004- Cons
- Injector Harness faulting
- Glowplug reflash
( apparently they have extended warranty options to cover injectors )
- IDFS axles break.
Powerstroke 7.3l (turbo not idi) Cons
havent come across any? lol
Cummins 5.9l -6BT- Pro's
- Really easy to work on.
- Parts are READILY availible.
- Look's pretty?
Powertstroke 7.3l pros
- you tell me.
yall fill in the rest on whatcha know.
THIS EXCLUDES 6.0L, 6.4L, AND 6.7L PSTROKES. AND 6.7 CUMMINS AND NEWER DURAMAXES. cause i dont want one.
