Helping With Truck
I have a 6.0L on startup for weeks its been shaking and taking oof I cant get above 5 mph then after a mile it will get upto speed. Well I finally took it to the dealer and they said to save me money they can tell me that the heads are blown. I said everything i read does not show its the heads. So I paid the shop and again they come back and say its the heads. Sorry I still had doubts as I never worked on diesels but work on gasoline engines all the time. I understand there are huge differences but can I just need some extra support that its the heads.
Well after sitting there for a week I finally take it home and it starts outs the same then while on the highway after about 20 miles It looses power and drops down to 40mph before long I hear a 'pop' smoke comes out exhaust and so I started pulling over. Well I needed to try to speed up to to get over past a line and the truck took off! I mean it ran like new! I was up to a 100 slowed down then back up and stayed on highway for 30 miles just testing it out. I continued the test out by starting and stopping,turning it off and it and it takes off every time at great speeds with no stuttering.
What could of possibly happened??? That pop like a constipated bowel movement made my truck come back to life.
