    New to the group and need some advice. I recently purchased a 07 for a good price. Reason being, it ate a lifter. I got my hands on a donor motor with 130k on it. My plans are to replace the lifters and gaskets before I drop this in. So my question is if I'm just removing the heads for the...

    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.

    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...

    Is 3500 with labor a good price for just the gaskets and studs?
  8. 6.0 Motor problems
    What can cause a degas bottle to puke? The obvious answer, I believe, is a blown head gasket, so let me tell you more about why I’m asking. 3 years ago, with a stock '04 6.0L, I decided to buy an SCT livewire and some tunes from MPT. I filled out MPT's info form for the tunes, and in doing so...

    Hello all, I've run into quite the unfortunate problem within the last few months. My truck has hydrolocked. I do not know many details unfortunately, since I was not the one driving the truck when this happened. But all I do know is it did hydrolock, it was "shut-off" when it happened, and...

    Hi guys, This is my first post on here, although I usually just stalk the forums to find all the answers I'm looking for however, I can't seem to find an explicit answer this time. I bought the truck in August of this year and immediately deleted the EGR cooler and replaced the oil cooler as...

    Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to outline what I have done for possible diagnosis. First, thanks to all those that have contributed to threads in the past. By reading them, I was able to pull the oil cooler, and perform all updates on my 05 FX4, except studs. However, I think I have...

    Hello, I am new to the club. I live in the metro Cincinnati area (Union Kentucky). I need a good Powerstroke mechanic to install studs and headgaskets for my 6.0 that I just bought. I would be interested in a bullet proof package with EGR delete. Can anyone offer any advice...

    Following a head gasket replacement and full re-assembly, firing it up and running it for a bit I busted a pushrod on my #5. I pulled it apart just enough to get the passenger valve cover off, pulled the first head bolt/rocker arm assembly on #5 off and pushrod was fine, pulled the second head...

    Right now I am doing studs on my 05, the usual ARP's OEM gaskets, heads machined and checked for cracks.

    Hello, Can someone take a look at a video I made using the Block Tester kit, checking for a head gasket leak. Starts at 3:06. The beginning of the video shows the PSI coolant test for head gasket leak if anyone is interested. Basically I'm trying to figure out why my PSI is 15+ but the...
  20. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Hi all. I'm about to dig into my passenger side #5 of my 2003 to look for push-rod/rocker problems that I believe has led to losing compression through the intake following HG repair. Once I do loosen that head stud, assuming I do find the issue and don't have to pull the head, my preference...
