Ford 6.0L 2003-2004 F-Super & Excursion lack of power condition, surge, or turbocharger flutter after performing Field Service

Ford 6.0L 2003-2004 F-Super & Excursion lack of power condition, surge, or turbocharger flutter after performing Field Service

OC Diesel discovered that some Ford 6.0L 2003-2004 F-Super Duty and 6.0L Excursion vehicles built on or before 9/29/2003 may experience a P006A, P132B, P0401 or P0402 diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) with a lack of power condition, surge, or turbocharger flutter after performing Field Service Action or after recalibrating the vehicle with the inferred Exhaust Pressure (EP) strategy. This inferred EP strategy does not use the Exhaust Back Pressure (EBP) sensors input, although the EBP sensor must remain connected to the tube and the wiring harness.

OC Diesel service technicians use procedures to repair troubles after receiving the inferred EP calibration update. There are a variety of reasons why a customer could experience a lack of  power condition with the inferred EP calibration.

These can include causes a person may not directly see as impacting the condition or codes set. For example; a Mass Air Flow (MAF) / Manifold Air Pressure (MAP) code can be related to a MAF sensor or a MAP sensor problem. However, those codes can be caused by other items such as: intake leak, exhaust leak, Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) problems, and aftermarket modifications.

2003-2007 6.0L Ford No Start / Hard Start / Runs Rough

If you own or operate a 2003-2005 6.0L Excursion, 2003-2007 6.0L Ford Super Duty, or 2004-2009 6.0L Ford E-350, E-450, E-550, read this useful information:

OC Diesel recognizes that some 2003-2005 6.0L Excursion, 2003-2007 6.0L Ford Super Duty, and 2004-2009 6.0L Ford E-350, E-450, E-550 series vehicles equipped with a 6.0L Ford diesel engine may experience no starts, hard starts or rough running when cold and may be accompanied with diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) P0611, P1378 and/ or all 8 injector circuit codes. These symptoms may lessen or disappear when the engine is warm. These conditions may be caused by the Fuel Injection Control Module (FICM) or injector spool valve sticking internally during cold engine operation.

OC Diesel takes a methodological approach in the matter to overcome what may be a very frustrating situation for you, the customer. With their highly qualified team technicians who have experience with every possible diagnosis/problem when it comes to the 6.0L Ford it is not a big task for OC Diesel Technicians to overcome a resolution to your problem.

In some cases the failed FICM module can cause diagnostic trouble codes related to injectors even when the injectors or injector wiring are not at fault. OC Diesel Technicians take measures in checking the FICM module for proper operation before evaluating injector operation or wiring issues. Be assured OC Diesel will diagnose and deliver the correct resolution to your annoying problem accurately and quickly.

Other possible causes of this problem exist from “stiction”.  These conditions are caused by the injector spool valve sticking internally during cold engine operation. Engine oil temperature can be improved by using the lightest possible specified weight oil during winter months. Call OC Diesel for advice in choosing the best possible fluid to utilize during these months of operation.

S&B Filters Cast Aluminum Elbow Intakes

1

S&B manufactures their Intake Elbows out of cast aluminum because they believe you need a part that delivers extreme performance without the risk of it bursting in the field. While we too liked the idea of using a composite material to make our elbows, trust us, it’s not worth the risk.

2

The smooth design of the S&B Intake Elbow significantly improves the airflow after the intercooler. The result is denser air delivering more power and better fuel economy.

S&B’s Intake Elbows include 1/8″ NPT ports for simple gauge and power adder installation. S&B taps all the ports on our CNC machines, so you can be assured of a perfect fitment without scraping your knuckles. If it leaks, you lose power. Whenever possible, S&B utilizes an o-ring to seal the elbow and provided worry free operation for the long haul. While many competitors insert bolts through the air chamber to secure their elbow, S&B kept it clear to provide you with the best possible airflow.
