While I can appreciate you taking a stand on the subject, chasing away yet another Certified 6.0 Tech by adding smart remarks is really not what most of us want to see happen again. Most of them, 7 at my last count, have left the site due to taking crap from users on here.

You could have left out that last line and still gotten your point across.

I sincerely appreciate any Tech taking the time to share their information on FTE. If a user has a disagreement or another way to approach a fix then I feel it should be brought up with respect. We can certainly disagree and still show respect to one another.

Both make good points, just a misunderstanding. A Tech has to repair related emission items. Owners at our own expense eliminate common problems.

Carry on gentlemen.

Oil Leak Questions

Hi,
I have a 05 PSD with 112,000 miles. I noticed a few drops of oil under my truck, about a tbsp. You can see it dripping off of the rear main seal. I brought it to the Ford place and this was their diagnosis:
1. Oil leak on top of engine at CAC
2. Oil leak at Injection Pressure Regulator (IPR Valve)
3. Oil leak at Low pressure oil pump in front of engine
Cost to fix oil leaks = $1510

Also,
They noticed a leak at the heater/coolant control valve ($170).

This truck has had a VERY EASY life and has been well maintained. Can I have yalls opinion on the problems? Why so many oil leaks? Or, does Ford not really know the problem and their just throwing solutions hoping one works? SHould I expect more to come? I love the truck and just hope this isn't the beginning of a long road of repairs.

Thanks Guys, any input would be greatly appreciated.

I would not think that oil drips would be indicative of future failures. have you considered doing the work yourself - you would save a lot of $$'s. All except the oil pump leak should be fairly easy work.

that all sounds like normal oil leak places for a 6.0L. i'd trust what they say. doing the rear main you have to r and r the tranny and to do the front seal you have to take the radiator out. the cac tube isnt so bad.

I think I would try fixing oil leak 1 & 2 and see how much of your leakage problem clears up.

short block 6.0

I have an unrepairable oil leak on my 6.0 power stroke. After 10 times to the dealer (under warranty) Ford has suggested changing the engine to a short block. Any advise or suggestions on this type of repair? anyone with the same problem?

What do they say (and where) the leak is to be "unrepairable"?

I say it is un repairable since they have tried to fix it 10 times. Rear main seal 5 times, bed plate 2 times, and numerous other pump seals. I love my truck but not like this. Still under warranty, now they want to replace the engine for a short block. what should I expect with a short block? what is the difference from the standard one?

Just throwing this one out there because I ran into it a couple weeks ago. I had an oil leak that I had diagnosed as a rear main bearing, with oil dripping down the back of the oil pan and the fly wheel cover.
It was still covered under warranty so I took it in. It ended up being the oil pan bolts needed retorqed. At least thats the line the dealership fed me and it is not leaking anymore. So I guess I misdiagnosed it.
So maybe if you have a leak up front or in the rear try retorqing the oil pan bolts before jumping in there and swapping the bearings.
Good Write up though, very informative.

I will throw that at them, however, the pan screws are clean, the oil comes from the bell housing. I have thrown in the towel long ago. I have had it at the dealer 10 times already. Any idea on what advantages I would have by changing to a short block engine? should I try to lemon law the truck and get a new one?

Short block on Ford's dime? I'd go for what is mostly a new engine! Try and get the better head studs as well.

There is no difference between a short block and the engine you have now. All that is meant by short block is that they will replacing everything between the oil pan and your heads. They will reuse your heads, intake manifold, oil pan, and other accessories
So basicly you will be getting a new block, crank, connecting rods, pistons, etc. etc. plus probably an extended waranty. I would say go for it and see if the will put the heads on with the ARP studs like miner999r said.
Sounds like a heck of a deal to me. I would jump all over it.
