  1. General 6.0L Discussion
    Hey guys, quick question, can you reuse apr head studs? I’m in the middle of having everything rebuilt and the truck has “apr 2000” head studs currently. Can I reuse them with confidence? Also, is there a “best” head gasket that’s less likely to blow? Trucks been through 3 sets of head...
  2. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Hello- First off, I’ve never been on any type of auto forum before, but I’m in desperate need of advice. I’m not sure I’m even posting in the right spot. My husband would normally be the one to handle this type of inquiry but he is swamped at work. So here I am, trying to solve our problem. A...

    2004 F250, studded. Having puking problems when towing up a steep hill. I hooked up pressure gauge in line from radiator to bottle. With engine cold, drove a few miles to highway, without the trailer. With ECT about 110-120, get about 2 psi on gauge. Now I step on it up a grade, boost up to...

    Went to start my 05 f350 6.0 a couple days ago and it acted like it was hydrolocked....then I noticed that when you cranked it over there was what appeared to be water spraying out the exhaust.... Everything I found says EGR failure, blown head gaskets, or hydrolock... My Degas bottle is empty...

    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...
  9. Diesel Diagnostics
    Hello all, this is my first time posting in this forum. I've been searching for answers on this POS for about a week but I can't seem to find anyone whose had this same issue. (The guys on reddit recommend I post my problem here) So let me start by saying I have done a handful of 6.0 head jobs...
  10. 6.0 Motor problems
    I drove my truck to work and back today with a 0-30 PSI gauge teed into the house from the intake manifold to the degas bottle. Pressure settled at about 10 PSI when the engine warmed up. I was seeing a sharp rise of 2-3 PSI when I hit the skinny pedal hard enough to get 20 PSI boost (all I...

  12. General 6.0L Discussion
    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...
  13. 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.
  14. 6.0 Motor problems
    Hi guys, over these couple of days I've kept flushing my coolant and running the truck and it keeps filling the degas bottle with green slime or wtv... I assume it's oil from everything I've seen. I was wo seeing how much a head gasket cost on average in Canadian dollars if possible (any...

  16. 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...

    Is 3500 with labor a good price for just the gaskets and studs?
  18. 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...
