Thanks for the info. this this engine swap do anything to the value of my truck? I was in the process of seeking legal help to claim the lemon law. I also have a K & N air intake, would this fit the new block?

yes it all will fit and no it shouldnt effect the value of your truck because it is dealership installed. if you ever had to pay for an upgrade and kept the receipts and had it intalled with proof that a professional did it then it would make the value goe up depending on the buyer. but no it shouldnt effect to much. and putting in a short block sounds to fix an oil leak sounds like a ****ty diesel tech to me. but thats just me. have you taken it to a different ford dealer? also when you get it back ask for the technicians story write up. if you feel up to it post what he wrote and did. he should be very specific. but im diagnosis is an inexperienced tech or hes half blind. my .02

Thumbs up

I did originally take it to another dealer twice with no success. Reason for switching dealers is due to availability of appointments. Reason for going with a new block is because I have not given up on the small leak, been there at least 10 times, and each time I also get a loaner paid by them. Ford Motor Company has sent a field engineer to see my truck the last two fixings and his recommendations on repairs have made it worst. I think they are really pushing to getting me the hell out of there and the only way they feel they can is be replacing the engine like I suggested long time ago. It's either that and extend my warranty or have the truck replaced with the lemon law. I really like my truck this is why I have pushed so much to have it fixed. I don't want to be stuck with a hefty bill once my warranty expires. Thank you for all of your info.

Engine Damaged

Very worried 04 6.0PSD 81K had oil leak small drip from passenger side rear of engine dealer under extened warranty.
Dealership replaced all CAC tubes, fron crank seal, rear main seal, power steering pump, lower ball joints alignment, was hefty bill and X spent 7 days in shop. This Grand Visit was after EGR, idc, crank position sensor replacement and turbo disassembly cleaning and rebuild.
Sunday AM, 280 miles later, zero oil pressure indicated smelled hot oil inside truck, pulled over shut down and puddles of oil under truck, oil blowing back from dampner and rear main area all back along drive line and exhaust. From looks of it both the crank and rearmain seal are blowing oil big time.
X flatbeded to house, bucket is under X to catch the rest of the 15 quarts of oil that did not blow of seals.
Ford customer service going to be called tomorrow, going to have heart to heart about dealship etc etc.
Have opened on another thread, Engine Damaged????, but am interested in your take on potential engine damage as no engine is suspect in my mind due to their cr**py work?

New short block

Well, I had the short block put in last week, and guess what, after a 25 mile drive, the oil leak shows up on the same spot. I have a hanging oil drop on the bell tranny, same spot as the past 11 repairs............should have bought a Cummins. Ford wants me to keep taking it back, but I have had it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oil Leak HELP!

Fellas,
I just has some work done on my truck. Since getting it back I am having a small oil leak around my rear main seal. I have also noticed these bolts missing (refer to photos). Should these holes have bolts in them? If so, I assume this is the cause of the leak. Maybe the dealer just forgot to put em back in. What do yall think? Well, I can't seem to be able to attach the photos, if anyone is interested I can email them. ANy HELP will be greatly apprecitated!

Put the photo in a picture album and then attach the link (or photobucket works also). More than half of the oil leaks end up in the rear main seal area.

You an all star, or something?

If you care to remember, or maybe it was before your 6.0 repair time: there used to be a warpage spec for the bedplate and block when you were resealing it. Warpage outside these specs required shortblock replacement.

Now you just poop it up with TA-16.

Looks like you are missing one bolt. In the third picture, the largest diameter hole (middle of the pic at the very bottom) should have a bolt in it. The others should be open like they are. Mine is quite a bit more oily than yours, but I have never had a drip. I am watching it close though!

Oil Leak

Do you think thats a quick fix, just put the bolt back and will stop the oil leak? As I mentioned, it was NOT leaking here before so surely thats the problem. However, I will be at the shop first thing in the AM having that bolt put back in. Someone was being careless...

Thanks for the input!!

There's a bolt missing out of your starter, in that bottom hole, there.

The other starter bolts come in from the front.

Also - that bolt missing will not likely cause any oil leaks. That stain on the bottom of the rear cover is likely from something further up, the rear cover, something from the front blowing back and running down the cover.

I've been fixing these heaps since they pretty much came out, and I don't recall ever seeing a rear main seal leaking.

Oil Leak

Could that cause the leak? Or is that just there to hold the starter in place?

Just another starter bolt. If you look carefully, that bolt simply goes through the rear cover into the mounting face of the starter, if memory serves me rightly.
