    2006 F250 6.0 around 140k miles What am I missing? When the Modis scanner says 3960 psi desired can only get about 3300 psi actual. That's when you can feel the power drop or kind of surge. The ICP is in the 80s. Air pressure tested the hpop system-160 psi dropped to about 140 after 30 minutes...

  6. 6.0 Motor problems
    I am now to this forum. I just noticed that my temp gauge is not moving past the first notch. Looked at coolant tank and it is low. When the truck starts to warm up it runs/idles rough and loses power. Can a bad/stuck thermostat cause this?

    This all started as I made my drive up from California to Idaho on January 14th, 2015 in my 2006 Ford F-350 6.0L. I had just taken the truck into the downtown dealership in my hometown for a tune up and some other miscellaneous repairs. They seem to be a little sketchy in terms of repairs, as...

    Hey fellas!! I'm new to the powerstroke group and to the diesel group as well. I'm buying a 1997 7.3 f350 tomorrow, hopefully, and when I went to test drive it, it was kind of lacking on power.
