    6.0L Problems Forum
    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...
  3. are you suffering from the 6 liter surge?

    General 6.0L Discussion
    just wanted to update users about how i fixed the surging i was getting with my 6 liter. i secured the plugs for the ICP and EBP sensors so they do not rattle around. there is enough steel within 3" of the plugs to zip tie the pig tail securely to and keep them anchored and no wiggle room. i...

    I have recently bought my truck. After having a PSD in the past I did the basics after noticing the issue. No codes, power surge at idle, slight shake/ shimmy when idle surge occurs. I have changed out the CPS, ICP, UVCH on passenger side, checked driver side as well,fuel filter, glow plugs and...

    911 Urgent Situations
    Just got my 2008 F450 with 42k miles, twice so far the boost gage has maxed out (both times at or near idle) and the truck surges ahead. Luckily my foot was on the brake both times but I had to brake hard to get the truck stopped. It stopped after maybe 10 seconds or so and went back to normal...

    What a Powerstroke is for, Towing and Hauling
    I'm new to this forum and have mainly just read other people posts to learn more about my 6.0 until now. I was coming home from a camping trip this weekend towing my toyhauler that was about 11,000 lbs. and broke 2 teeth on my ring gear. My truck has quite a few mods on it, but they are mainly...
  7. Engine Surges while stopped (idle speed)

    6.0 Motor problems
    Hi - I have a 2003 f250 4x4 6.0L. Randomly, while either stopped at a light or stop sign, the engine surges briefly. This has also happened while moving very slow in bumper to bumper traffic. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Thanks!
  8. Turbo surge unloaded????

    99-03 7.3L General Discussion
    You’ll have to bear with me as I’m trying to diagnose the problem from the information I’m getting from my wife since I’m currently deployed. I had never noticed any sort of turbo surge problems with my truck but then again I had never towed any loads with it. When towing my Suzuki Samurai...
