Well thank you Mark, long time no see, hope you are well...
So is the fuel pump something we should have on the list of the top 10 parts to stock for the 6.0 Fleet? And the CMP ?
Nice to hear from you, Cheers from Australia
Things are going good here, but hectic around the holidays! Who knows if things are even stable here w/ the big 3
I liked your post - I figured I wasn't telling you anything new, but I thought that some newbie readers might not know.
I have been thinking about doing some research on the most common 6.0 part failures and then I read your post - it is pretty much the same thing.
I would think that the ICP and harness would be a good thing - not real sure about the CMP, but I have seen a few replacements discussed (one post on another forum talked about the CMP replacement being bad right out of the box).
The IPR and EBP might be good things to have also.
I have been reading recently about quite a few FICM failures. A bit expensive, but maybe a good thing to have.
For the 2005 and up year models, I would get the HPOP STC fitting replacement part also. Not sure about actual HPOP failures, there have been some posted, but not a bunch.
The water pump impellor seems to be a weak link - I read somewhere that the impellor is plastic and it can separate from the shaft.
Oil coolers are a very common failure component - not sure of the cost.
I haven't seen too many failures of the HFCM discussed (except a false signal on the "water in the fuel" light).
I will do some more research - hopefully others will jump in on this. The list would probably be a little different for 2003-2004 vs 2005-2007 year models.
Take care LR!
