Thanks for the welcome Joe .I am glad you were able to respond so fast, Zack told me you were very busy. Zack was here at the house today and he feels sure he has located the problem. I do not have much wrench time so I am going to hire the work done I am now in the process of looking into what parts I need to throw at it. Zack feels sure that it is the heads (Yea me) Good news is that now I can justify putting the ARP studs in LOL. I am needing sugggestions as to what else but I am not able to throw a lot of $ so I need to pick wisely.Thanks so much to everyone ...AND a BIG IOU one to Zack......

Welcome to the funny farm, no one bites. But we're all up on our shots just in case something goes wrong.

Finally, another 6.0L driver has joined the site. Get a couple more and we'll give those trash talking 7.3L owners a run for their money.

Good morning !!!!Zack I found a local shop to do the work for the heads will cost $1400 labor plus parts, I told tham I would bring it in Monday.Thanks so very much for your help. Now I gotta figure out what things I am going to upgrade etc. I know when I get it back I am installing monitors like you showed me, as well as block htr. cord, blue spring, coolant filter. I feel these are essentials.

There is a term for what your going through...PMS = Powerstroke Mod Syndrome; some cases have known to get expensive...just ask our fearless leader about his case of it. Unless you like analog gauges, you could get a ScanGauge II at either Amazon or AutoZone (goes for about $160). It will read real time data (oil & coolant temperature, voltage, RPM and etc). It will read codes, but can't dianose weak injectors. Allot of guys in the 6.0L forum like it because they can pull their own codes (will show up as a P#####). But if your like me, nothing beats analog information.

You don't want to do that. You'll end up buying specialized tools that only work on PSD. And once you start that, you'll want 'em all...more $$$$ out of pocket.

Professional shop, not shade tree...which is do-able if you have the time. I do not, doing good to keep up with what I've got. Anyone want to track down a power steering leak on a '02 Honda Odyssey?????

Im actually with jeff here. Im out of that ******* (going fast all the time) stage & love how simple the IDIs are. Just wish I had several more for my other trucks. Ive hauled 1 load with my 1ton & it handled it great. It wasnt running as good as its running now but ran out great.

As long as it says Ford on the title & steering wheel Im happy.

Yeah, their simple alright. Light one off and you don't need a battery or alternator to keep 'em running. I'll give y'all that much. But I like have the power to pull a trailer that weighs TWICE the truck and still stay with traffic. Like I've said for a while now...living with an IDI truck is like living with a ugly woman, hopefully she can cook. Now living with a PSD (especially the 6.0L) it's like living with a supermodel; she might be high maintenance but when your out on the town there's a grin from ear to ear. I'll keep my PSD and get twice the work done.

Welcome, glad Zack is getting you lined out, never met him, but he seems like a great guy keeping the brotherhood of PSD owners alive.

As for the 6.0 vs 7.3 vs whatever. I love them all, but I would have to admit although I would not be scared of personally owning a 6.0 they can be quite pricey in the repair department. Best of luck on the repairs, where in NWA are you located? Never mind, Rudy I saw in your other posts.
