  1. 6.0 Motor problems
    Okay, I have a late build 2004 f250, I bought I about a year ago and ever since then oil temps had been separating from the coolant temps until finally the difference was over 75 degrees so I decided to put in a new oil cooler and while in there an rcd egr delete kit. Pretty smooth job but when...
  2. 6.0 Motor problems
    2005 ford f350 diesel. Had been running fine. Had a oil change at a national chain. Then wouldn't start when hot. Took it somewhere else, redid the oil. To make sure right oil was put in. Still will start and run great after it sits. Will run fine but if you turn it off it will not start...
  3. 6.0 Motor problems
    So finally broke down and had the dealer do a diag on the no hot start. Dummy plugs on both sides. so I might as well do both the standpipes and dummy plugs while I'm in there. Hopefully this is the last of the HPO system issues. Did the STC fitting last month. Also, the service guy said...

  5. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    My truck was starting great, then suddenly one warm afternoon a few days ago, I tried to start it up and when I turned the key all I got was a loud buzz / jackhammer type sound. The sound seems like it's coming from the passenger side of the engine compartment, but I can't verify that. I...
  6. 6.0 Motor problems
    Now that its getting hot out, when my truck has been running it doesnt want to start back up. I let it cool down a bit and starts fine. Ive read some other posts on here saying its the HPOP. and of course this item for the 6.0 is twice as expensive as all the others. Is there a way to pinpoint...
  7. 6.0 Motor problems
    Any insight would help, please. I have a 03 6.0 :icon_ford: Ex, as the weather got colder (<40 degrees) the truck would not start. I plugged the block heater in 4 hours or more and after a few tries (could hear the flywheel engage and the teanny temp rose) it would finally crank over. Once the...
  8. 6.0 Motor problems
    I drive a 2003 6.0L PSD in an :icon_ford: Excursion. I got it used from a dealer. One previous owner who took excellent care of it. It is in near new condition but the motor is obviously well used. 97,000miles on it. Never had a single glitch with it. Yesterday morning it was 22 degrees outside...
  9. 6.0 Motor problems
    I finished installing an EGR delete on my '03 F250 yesterday. When I went to fire the truck up, it would just crank and crank. Finally got it to start, and let it idle for 10 minutes. Idle was rough, and was slow to build RPM's when pressing the throttle. The standard diesel injector knock...
