How to tell when you need new batteries...

I just put new batteries in my 2005, and a new alternator that I probably didn't really need. My first set of batteries lasted a long time, from new to 2012 so 7 years. They were the stock...

There is a chance it's the oil cooler but presuming you've been monitoring that it's about 99% sure you have stuck turbo vanes. I had exactly the same symptom, pulled turbo, it was heavily rusted so...

I got a brand new Rotomaster turbo, direct replacement, for around $1000 all in, probably includes shipping in the US. I didn't want another Garrett, nor did I want a performance upgrade turbo. So...

My truck already has one. If I am under a load and the boost goes to 35 psi and I get an instant wrench light with de-power, I know I have stuck turbo vanes... :)

Edit - it's actually pretty...

Seems good to me. I would install the fuel pressure regulator spring upgrade immediately to keep the injectors happy.

Upgrade the fuel pressure spring first, see what else is happening. Firm believer that if it isn't broke don't fix it, just maintain it. More trucks gain problems from unnecessary work that you...

Fuel pressure is the leading cause of injector failures. Polishing spools is more for start-up stiction, if I was taking injectors out I'd be putting OEM remanufactured in. After checking the fuel...

Advice on storing a 6.0 over a winter

I have a 2005 F250, 6.0 of course, and it's a good truck. Worth a lot less as a trade in than it is as a truck, if you get me. I'm getting out of a business that needed it, and I need to decide if...

I leave the turbo loose on the pedestal, only one bolt loosely fitted. That lets me get things seated and the clamp tight. Then I wrestle the turbo to get the other two bolts in, although to be...

Yes, I have had wheels balance with no weights. The tire guys say they need to put weights on both inside and outside to bet the balance correct, and to me that makes sense. If I was the owner of...

My point being that when you open the bleed screw and they DON'T push back pretty easily, I change the caliper then rather than waiting for it to sieze on a trip down a mountain towing a trailer in...

You need to get an OBDII data gauge like the Scanguage II so that you can read your oil and coolant temps. If the temps get too hot it can cause the engine to de-power, but you would normally expect...
