    I know I’m beating a dead horse, this topic has been brought up plenty of times but on good measure. When I first purchased my truck I didn’t realize how much oil quality and quantity played an effect on these trucks, I ran into a lot of injector issues not taking care of the oil. The 6.0...
  2. 6.0 Motor problems
    2004 f350 6.0 just hit 150k miles and I did an oil change on it 3 days ago and today and yesterday having issues with it. At stop lights after it is up to temp sounds and feels like it’s going to stall out and while driving it, it seems to get up to higher rpm before wanting to shift and when...

    I do oil changes every 5-7000km with Rotella 5w40 t6. Truck has been tuned/fully deleted with a single 50hp tune for 45,000km. It has ran flawlessly but the oil change indicator seems to have developed a life of its own. Changed my oil at 82000km and the oil change indicator showed up after...

    Hello, My name is Walter, I recently bought a 2006 Ford F-250 Diesel with a 6.0 engine. First, I brought the truck in to a shop for an oil change and to have the check engine light diagnosed. In the process of diagnosing, the truck stopped running. It would not start because there was not...

    New to the forum, and although I have a lot of learning to do when it comes to navigating the site, I’m nearly positive I am the first, and possibly the only one, interested in doing something like this. Now to my question: My dad can turn the motor over in his 01 Ranger without the injectors...

    Guys - I have heard - read - and even done a HPOP oil siphon and change, but then putting it back in, it seemed to take a ton of oil. Theoretically, this is all run - transferred - exchanged through the entire engine? I am changing oil now and drained it from the engine...went to siphon it out...
  8. 6.4L Problems Forum
    I bought a 08 F-250 with the 6.4 and was in the process of doing my first oil change. I pulled open the filter and a small piece of something flew out and bounced into the compartment. I fished it out and then looked down into the place where the filter goes and there is a spring laying in the...

    My friend sent me a link to a video on powerstrokehelp.com, where Bill Hewitt covers changing the 3 qts. of oil in the HEUI oil reservoir, and adding Prolong oil treatment to the final quart. The thing is, the whole video shows a 7.3L PSD, not a 6.0L. I checked the interwebs to see where the...

  12. What is This?
    My family was hit hard by economic changes in the last few years and I believe I made a bad decision to skip my last oil change. It has been about 10k miles since my last oil change, however, the truck appears to be running very well. I changed the oil yesterday with Rotella T and everything...
