I just started a new job @ a family-owned truck sales business. They're big time into trucks & the majority of them are Ford diesels. Most of these diesels are 6.0s & I need to get more familiar with them. My 1st questions are(& I'm sure everone's seen threads that start off like this about a million times): What are the most common problems for 6.0s? What would be the most common cause of 'no-starts'? Are there any tricks/tips I can learn for any type of repair(s)? Any specialty tools I need to get my hands on? Now, for my 2nd questions: I worked on a gorgeous '05 Harley Davidson Edition F-350 with an Edge module in the engine bay(no switches, gauges, or any other devices in cab
). There was a small fuel leak underneath the turbo around a blue hose. The hose seemed to be the cause of the leak. I had snipped the band that holds the end of the hose toward the front of the truck & installed a hose clamp, & also tightened the surrounding hardware(torx screws). The leak seemed to stop, but I wanted to know if this was a common problem & if there was another area I needed to look @ besides the blue hose. & finally: what IS that blue hose? Fuel came out of it, but I know almost nothing about 6.0s & would like some insight. Thanks in advance!
