Ask -
Has the EGR system been deleted?
If so, how was it done (ie cooler removed, cooler blocked off, if blocked off - where was it blocked off)?

I have never had bad fuel. I will say that I frequently run my tank level down to where a normal fill-up is 31 gallons. That certainly doesn't help pump longevity I'm sure. I probably need to...

I am so glad you didn't keep driving it w/ the white smoke! It had all the signs of a bad injector and that can bite you hard if you don't address it quickly!!

Are you monitoring fuel pressure?

Sure am glad I have a fuel pressure gauge!

Fuel pump finally bit the dust at 215k miles. Went ahead and put on a new HFCM. Those quick disconnects can sure pack a lot of dirt behind the locking...

Best to post in the 6.0L section because the original Ford Gold coolant has caused so many problems. IMO the most important thing for a new owner of a used 6.0L is to evaluate the health of the...

No correlation at that time. I was keeping everything stock until AT LEAST 60k miles for warranty reasons! Certainly no failures of anything other than a FICM and the turbo. The FICM was after 60k...

The "universal average" is closer to 20 ppm from the Blackstone data I have - and it is supposed to be for the 6.0L.

Remember, the charts I posted reflect the ppm per 1000 miles driven, not the...

Every 6.0L owner needs the ability to read engine data AND to read fuel pressure (unless they have a lot of extra money to spend).

Lots of threads on it. It is very easy. You can download a smartphone app and get an ELM327 OBDII adapter. I like the BAFX brand. Typically you need a WiFi adapter for i-phones and Bluetooth for...

That is fairly consistent with a leak, a bad IPR (which even the new one might have another piece of metal in it), or a bad HPOP.

Even so, you should post cranking data for us to evaluate:...

One thing that is possible is that the high iron numbers earlier in the truck's life may have come from something OTHER THAN the oil choice. That said, I FIRMLY BELIEVE that the good results are not...
