  1. 94-98 7.3L Problem Forum
    Ok, so first I was getting billowing white smoke intermittently. Not on cold start but different times. The last time it did it it started after an hour drive. Wouldn't stop so I parked it and trailered it home. When I started it up 12hr later to drive it onto the trailer it was not smoking...
  2. 99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    My late-99 7.3 had always had Delo 15w40 dino oil since birth. Switched to Rotella T4 a couple of years ago when the Delo was no longer on Ford’s “approved” list. With 115k miles, I have no oil leaks and it runs great, even towing a 26-foot travel trailer. If it matters, the highest the EOT has...
  3. E-Series Van Discussion
    Hey folks! So I did a head gasket change a while back and in a not very proud moment, I neglected to get new valve body gasket. It seemed pretty heavy duty and I didn't realize it was something that needed to be changed. As a result I am getting some oil leaks on the back driver's side. When I...

    I have an oil transfer pump I’d like to sell. It’s a 1hp Fill-Rite I have about 20’ of oil resistant transfer hose. This will move oil,transmission fluid and veggie oil pretty fast. I added a spin on filter as well with shut off valve. Pm me if interested, I live in Crossville Tn. I no longer...
  5. 6.7 Problems Forum (2011-2016)
    I have a recently deleted 2011 F350 that has started spitting out white smoke and oil everywhere. I went for the delete because the EGR was going bad (noisy, frequent cleaning, etc). The rear corner panel is covered in brown oil after a few hours of driving. I'm being told to go as far as...
  6. 6.4 Maintanence Info
    Since purchasing my used 2010 F-250, 6.4 which I use mainly for pulling a 25', 7,000# trailer I have used Rotella T-6 15W-40. Oil changes done at 5,000 miles. Truck now has 160,000 miles. Recently I purchased Rotella T-4 as it was nearly $9 cheaper per gallon. I recognize the T-4 is not...
  7. 6.0L Problems Forum
    I have a 2006 6.0 and just replaced my oil cooler. Did about everything I could to get all the oil it pumped into my coolant system out but when driving about 70 on the highway I see EOTs of 210 and ECTs around 204-208. Before my oil cooler went my EOTs were never above 202 (unloaded without a...
  8. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    Hello, I have 2000 F-250 7.3 and Unfortunately the previous owner put his knee on the oil pressure sensor pigtail. The gauge was dancing up and down for awhile but now has decided to completely stop working and leaving the oil pressure warning light on. My question is- Does that sensor...

  10. 6.0 Motor problems
    My oil had turned to gel. Second time this has happened. First time I didn't believe the mechanics when they said the oil gelled up the engine and all the new injectors. 188k miles on the truck an have been running T6 plus Revx every oil change from 60k on the truck. This time I only had 800...
  11. General 6.7 Discussion (2011-2016)
    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...
  12. 99-03 7.3L Powerstroke Problems
    I have a 1999 f350 7.3 with 180k on it. The truck sat up for 11 years. I started it once In a while. I put a new belt fluids and tires etc on it to get ready for the trip. I took it on a few long trips to test it out before the cross country trip. Half way into my trip the truck started...
  13. 99-03 7.3 Motor Problems
    Oil leak that looks to be coming from the top of the motor towards the rear on the passenger side from a cooler line. Seems like an odd place to run an oil cooler line, but thought I'd get some thoughts from everybody instead of beating my own head into the firewall... Thanks in advance
  14. General 6.4L Discussion
    Hey everyone, I purchased an 08 F250 6.4L a few months back and will be doing an oil change this weekend. I've done plenty of them on my other cars but seeing as this is the first one I'm doing on this truck I figured I'd ask a few questions. Reference info: I live in Oakland, CA. Weather...

  18. 94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    Good morning all! I am in the process of checking my oil pressure on my 95 7.3. Plugging my gauge into one of the ports by the valve covers, I'm getting about 6-650 psi at idle and when I floor it, it goes up to 2,500 psi for a few seconds and then drops to 1,500 psi. Is this normal? Thanks!

    Greetings everyone! Let me preface this with I was a die hard "T6 or bust" guy for years... ever since I got my company trucks in 2010. For the sake of this thread and discussion, it’s a 6 truck fleet of all 6.0 Powerstrokes (four are 2006, two are 2007) and those of you in here who know how...
