  1. 6.0L Problems Forum
    So I just did my 2nd oil cooler backflush, and also replaced the thermostat and reservoir/degas bottle. There was a bunch of crud stuck up top in the reservoir and as the antifreeze expanded it would rise into the crud and run it through the system 😬. Anyway, flushed it out, replaced the coolant...
  2. 6.0 Motor problems
    I am trying to figure out if my truck has a blown head gasket or just a bad oil cooler. When driving 80 on the highway with no trailer my coolant temp is around 196 and my oil was at 233, so I know that it needs a new oil cooler. I also have a thin layer of clean oil in my coolant overflow tank...

    Greetings to all! I've learned a lot from you all over the last few months, so I thought it was time to contribute my thoughts/impressions, and get the community's thoughts on my rig after my first big camping trip over Memorial Day week. I bought a 2004 Excursion several months ago, which...

    not long ago, I saw a document (TSB maybe?) with Ford's procedure for checking the oil cooler on a 6.0. I should have saved or bookmarked it, but I was an idiot. I don't see it in the 6.0 Tech Files section. Can someone help me out?
  5. Diesel Diagnostics
    So I had a buddy let me use his scanner one day and drove up a big hill. My coolant never went above 210 but my oil temp was super high, it said 245. We replaced the oil cooler and all the seals on the top of the motor. We went for another drive when we had everything back together and the...

    I'm going to be replacing all 8 injectors and the oil cooler on my truck. Is there anything else I should replace while I'm in there? The truck is a 2006.
  7. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Got a 6.0 E350 Diesel that I noticed puked some coolant the other day. I never remember it overheating but noticed low coolant, a breached cap and white residue on the bottle. We've been through almost everything on this thing (in the last year or so) by now that I have heard causes the puking...

    Hey everyone, Just joined today I’ve been reading this forum for a year or so since I bought my first Powerstroke a ‘06 F350 CCLB lariat 6.0. Great truck and I love it but I think I may have enabled its demise. I just drove it across the country to get my puppy and right after I got home the...

    I just replaced the OEM oil cooler with the BPD oil cooler kit. I did not fill the valley back up to prime the HPOP.

  10. 6.0L Performance Parts Discussion
    I have seen a couple threads about this on other boards, but no solutions...I have a 2007 6.0, studs, BPD EGG and air-oil cooler. About 400 miles after the bulletproof work, it developed a whine...much like a PS pump (a BIG PS pump) low on oil. Noise is there at idle and through RPMs until...

    Hey all, I’m new here and am trying to get opinions on what to do with my truck. I think I know the obvious but I don’t really want to accept it and am looking for someone who’s gone through this already. I have an 08’ F250 with 230,000 miles. It’s been fantastic so far. I bought it with 180,000...

    I am new to the diesel world as I have recently purchased a 2006 F-250. After doing some research, I know that the difference in temperatures(delta) between the oil and coolant SHOULD be less than 15 deg F. I have seen as high of a 31 deg F difference cruising at highway speeds. My question is...
  15. General 6.0L Discussion
    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...
