This sounds ridiculous

I was listening to the troubleshooter on 630 KHOW. There was a guest on his show today that said had an insane comment on the 6.0. He says that there is a Ford TSB that says that a 6.0 built from 03-07 are NOT to be towing trailers because they get hot and let ethalene (sp?) fumes in the cab and creating crytals in the eyes of the trucks driver and passengers. The TSB he's talking about is this: 8-3-11.

Anybody ever heard of this? It sounds asinine to me that a DIESEL is not suppose to be towing trailers

I can't find any info on this TSB, and I'm thinking this guy had to of made this up, or he's just off his rocker.

I don't believe there is a TSB 08-3-11. There is an 08-11-3 (it does not mention any warning for ethylene):

TSB 08-11-3

Umm, this guy is smoking crack. LOL Ethylene is in almost everything. It's a hormone in our body. It's used in the plastics industry. It's the precursor to antifreeze coolant in our engines. It's produced by fruits like bananas. It's used as an anesthetic and is completely harmless in small concentrations. The list goes on and on. The only place it could come from in the truck would be the plastics or the coolant. The plastic would have to be on fire or in a chemical bath and the coolant would have to be reverse-oxidized (reduction reaction). I doubt towing a trailer is capable of either.

i herd the same thing on the radio he is full of Sh!t when i herd that i started to crack up and then when he said that he went out bought a GMC Duramax to tow his trailers i almost died. Personally i don't be leave that GMC are great tow vehicles A stock 6L can out tow a Duramax any day of the week the only thing that a Dmax is good for it to go get groceries from the store No real truck should ride like a old caddy

BTW: i loved the radio hosts' response, They all were thinking was don't we screen the calls before we put them on.

I thought the same thing. The guys from that shop (I don't remember the name of it) were like "I... have never heard of that one". That idiot is going to write a book on this TSB , and how the 6.0 is a POS engine. That should be a comical read, but I wouldn't fund the guys stupidity, so I'll wait to hear from someone else. I still stand by the phrase I have in my sig

I haven't noticed anything wrong with my eyes while hau.....oh my gosh, I can't seeeee!

Like Tech10002 said, even though ethylene IS found in all those things, it's not concentrated enough to do any damage. It's like with steroids; Hormones are found naturally in our bodies but don't do damage because they are not concentrated enough. When people start the juice is when they get in trouble because of the concentration levels. Most people on here have probably been drunk once or twice but it doesn't mean that your liver is going to fail. The people that are alcoholics and get drunk every night are the ones that need to worry. I think ya'll get the drift.
