    Hi everyone, I've been having some issues with my 2007 6.0 for over a year now, every so often at approximately 2,000-5,000 miles after a repair the truck runs a few degrees hotter, lower mpg, and bucks/misses under load and eventually dies causing a no start. First time this occurred, I had...

After fininshing the install of a remanufactured turbo, the truck will crank with no attempt to run. (the batteries were left disconnected for a few days during...

    I bought an early 04 6.0 a while back, it was running great and all of the sudden my oil pressure dropped to zero at idle. It also started to have a long crank and took about 7-8 seconds to start whereas it used to only take 1 or 2. Obviously it still had oil pressure or else it would not be...

    Hey, does anyone have experience with Grizzly and their 58v FICM? I searched the form and couldn’t find anything on them. I get a good price with blessed performance and was thinking of going with them. Any input would be appreciated.

    I have a couple questions about the 7 pin FICM on the early 6.0. Just so everyone knows where I'm coming from, here's the sitch. Working on my dad's 2003 F250 6.0. He's had issues with it on and off for quite some time, occasional rough idle, low power, things like that, but it usually runs ok...

    At the suggestion of a few members here, I have been considering a FICM tune from FICM Repair. One thing puzzles me about their claims. How do you get extra power without additional strain on head gaskets?

  8. 6.0 Motor problems
    Okay, so. Was driving on the highway home after replacing the water pump. Hit a huge pot hole while starting up a hill. Pedal felt dead then kinda came back about 25% power, looked behind me to see pure white smoke. Pulled over immediately turned it off. Checked the tuner and all temps were...

    I had someone try stealing the truck last week. They managed to **** something up and couldn't start it. I was looking at options outside of regular alarms and saw the posts about using a hidden kill switch and stumbled across fell marines wireless man overboard switch. The question I have is...
  10. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Hello All, Just joined and first post here. I have a 2005 F350 Ext Cab. I’ve been having what seems like stiction issues. Have tried Archoil, Rev-X, T6 5w-40 Sythetic and it helped some. Was towing my 3500# travel trailer and engine started missing. Got a P0271 and P0272 code and it’s obvious...

    I have been kicking around the idea of renting a FICM tuner and flashing the Atlas 40 tune on my FICM. I could use the added MPG in the city and the idea of having a "peppier" 6.0 is appealing for the relatively low cost (I think around $170). currently, there is nothing wrong with my FICM and...

    Hey guys, I have had my 05 6.0 for a couple years now and the last year I’ve been tracing down this really odd issue that no one seems to be able to figure out. The issue all started with me replacing my injectors and ficm. I did all the work myself and know for a fact that everything mechanical...

  16. 6.0 Motor problems
    I finally got my 6.0 started after a long process of putting it all together. I let it sit for a while at idle to kind of let everything learn itself and to make sure nothing obvious was wrong with it. When I went to take off for the first test drive a code threw out for the #1 cylinder...

    Hey all! I'm looking into sending out my FICM this spring to get fixed. I've heard a lot of good about Circuit Board Medics but also came across SIA Electronics and another repair company ( I cant find again now) through just searching FICM repairs. Looking for the whole take out, mail in...

    Went to start my truck this morning. Sitting all night in -6° C. So it’s not that cold but I guess enough to throw the truck off. Starts fine in warm weather. But this morning wouldn’t start at all. Turns over and would randomly get a fire but it would either last a second of running and turn...

    2005 Ford f250 6.0L Truck will not fire off. I lose communication to the PCM and the FICM. The truck fires and then dies right away, maybe runs for maybe 2 seconds if we get lucky. I get connection back to both, and then randomly it just goes away. The PCM and FICM were both just replaced. I...

    No need to laugh, but I just purchased an 03 F250 6.0. This is the 1st vehicle I’ve ever owned with OBD2, so while I know my way around an engine bay, I’m new to all of this, this is my 1st diesel, and am looking for some help. I purchased the truck with blown head gaskets. I replaced the head...
