I have a 2006 6.0 I went thru a puddle of water that splashed into my intake and the truck died a few seconds later. So far I have changed the oil, (there was water in the oil) removed the glow plugs and cranked the engine pushed some water (a drop or 2) out of the glow plug holes, re-installed the glow plugs changed oil a second time after turning the engine over. It now cranks over everything sounds normal(no knocking) but it won't start. Anyone have any ideas? next steps?

is there oil in your coolant?

by water in the oil, was it alot?

when was the last time you changed your oil?

how many miles are on your truck? studs/headwork?

If he went through a big puddle, had a loose oil filler tube or dipstick connection, open CCV, or vent and there was enough pressure and time to make it happen, he could get water in the oil. Not likely but possible.

He could have damaged the air filter or with loose connections to the turbo, sucked water into the intake. He could have damaged a piston to the point of the water entering the oil system from a cylinder. Again, this is highly unlikely unless there is more to the story like: "I was swamping my truck and had it in 2-3' of water and I got stuck for a while" or as Zmann said, he really submarined it.

So as others have said, did the water really come from the incident or a different cause? Regardless, you will have to dry out the electrical system (all plugs), including ensuring the FICM and ECU are dry internally and have not been damaged.
