Powerstroke 6.0L code reader

This is probably an old question. But, is there a code reader available for the 6.0L PowerStroke? Does a OBD II reader work on diesels?

Thanks

Yes OBD II reader works. I have use Autotap for reading codes. But you can buy any OBDII reader that will work.

OBDII is notwhat you want. You want to get a scanner that can read CAN-BUS which is whats is used on the ford product line.
