  1. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Hi guys, first post here. I have a 2005 F250 with the 6.0 powerstroke. Truck is loosing coolant at a fast rate with no visible leak even after pressure test. White smoke only on initial acceleration during cold start. Replaced oil cooler with OEM oil cooler and gaskets less than 1k miles ago...
  2. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    Ok, so first I was getting billowing white smoke intermittently. Not on cold start but different times. The last time it did it it started after an hour drive. Wouldn't stop so I parked it and trailered it home. When I started it up 12hr later to drive it onto the trailer it was not smoking...
  3. 94-99 7.3 Repair Help
    Got a late 94 f350 7.3 that I'm working on. The owner had the water pump replaced do to it leaking and now it gets hot fast and builds enough pressure that the upper radiator hose is rock hard. They have put 2 new thermostats in it and a new radiator cap and yes the fan is working. I'm at a loss...
  4. 6.0 Motor problems
    Skip below to ISSUE or SUMMARY if I am rambling too much. My truck has been sitting for about 1 year now without being started. Stopped driving it because my oil cooler went out and the shop I was going to take it to couldn't get me in right away plus I was considering the bulletproof oil cooler...
  5. 6.0 Motor problems
    Seems I am leaking coolant after doing a oil cooler backflush+restore+elc fill, and I've noticed my cap holding less pressure. The coolant leak came from the passenger side center, kinda near the starter, but I also saw some fluid a little more towards the center, so it leads me to believe its...
  6. 6.0L Problems Forum
    I have a 2006 6.0 and just replaced my oil cooler. Did about everything I could to get all the oil it pumped into my coolant system out but when driving about 70 on the highway I see EOTs of 210 and ECTs around 204-208. Before my oil cooler went my EOTs were never above 202 (unloaded without a...
  7. General 6.0L Discussion
    Hello again all. I'm driving and pulling with the '06 F-450, been doing so for about 2 months now. I have addressed a hand full of the issues with the truck and am wondering about a few more. I had the thermostat changed pretty early on and temps started to look a TON better when driving. Other...
  8. 6.0 Motor problems
    Happy Sunday to everyone, just got back from a 1000+ mile round trip I took this weekend, which was also the first long distance driving I’ve done in my 6.0 psd. A few things to note that I found strange. despite a new ford oil cooler my deltas almost always stayed at 11-13 degrees. My highway...
  9. 6.0L Problems Forum
    I purchased a 2004 Ford F-250 a few months ago. I haven't had any issues, other than changing out filters, cleaning, etc. When I first checked the coolant, it was low. I topped it off. This was September or October when I purchased the truck. 2 days ago, it was low again, so I topped it back...
  10. General 6.0L Discussion
    Hey so I just got a late 2005 6.0 it is my first diesel. I am in the middle of replacing oil/egr cooler and some reason when I started this project I wasn't thinking very much and I started tearing the truck apart. So my issue is I jumped right into it way to fast and I wasn't thinking about...
  11. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Got a stock 06 6.0 power stroke. The second the truck starts, the coolant tank starts overflowing with combustion gas. My question is can a head gasket failure be this bad? Warped head? I’m thinking injector cup broke its seal or cracked.
  12. General 6.0L Discussion
    Last week I bought an 03 6.0 and I’ve noticed since then that there is coolant leaking from the degas bottle. The bottle itself, oil cooler, and egr cooler have all been replaced within the past couple years and I have the paperwork showing it was done. Once I started noticing it leaking I...
  13. 6.7 Motor Problems (2011-2016)
    I just drained a small amount of coolant to do the coolant testing. When turning the petcock back in, the cam engages and it turns the last 1/4 turn. At that time, it continues to drip very very slowly. Is this common; is there an area that needs to finish draining out after the petcock is...
  14. 94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    Bought a 97 F-250 with the 7.3 PSD. The coolant is orange. From what I am reading, there is no possible way this is correct and I need to flush it out and refill with green + SCA. Is there any correct coolant for this engine that is orange?
  15. 6.4 Motor Problems
    I know...another one of these threads... From what I've found Degas tank overflow can be from the tee installed incorrectly, Degas bottle issues, cap failure, stuck thermostats, or head gaskets. Truck is deleted and has no small coolant line tee. Just got done upgrading cooling system: new...
  16. General 6.7 Discussion (2011-2016)
    Hey Guys, Newbie here. Driving around town today running some errands, I happened to be monitoring the truck via Forscan and noticed a regen was taking place. Drove around for a while trying to get g/L as low as possible...when I pulled in my driveway I put the truck in park for a few minuets...
  17. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    I recently noticed my coolant temperature was over 500 degrees Fahrenheit when I had just started the engine. Great! I replaced the ECT sensor. It's located just to the left of the thermostat housing. I attached a photo to be crystal clear of what I replaced. Now my temperature is reading...
