2003.5-2007 Ford Powerstroke 6.0L

Ford Powerstrokes with a 6.0L engine have one of the worst reputations in the diesel world. Ford has been frequently asked, “Why didn’t you just keep the 7.3L engine?” But really the question is unfair given the circumstances at the time of creation of the 6.0L engine.

After January 1st, 2003, the federal government set tougher diesel emission standards. All the top diesel application manufactures had to restructure and invest a substantial amount of money to abide these new standards. Ford was one to do the same. Some say Ford should of added an exhaust gas recirculation system, a variable geometry turbo, and a high pressure injection system to the 7.3L engine. But others say nay, a clean burning 7.3L engine would have a horsepower disadvantage compared to the GM Duramax and the Dodge Cummins applications at the time. Also with Dodge Cummins Bosch’s latest Common Rail Injection, Ford 7.3L engines were much too loud.

So the 6.0L was created with four goals in mind:

  • Meet Emission Standards
  • Have More Horsepower than the competition
  • Have Better Fuel Economy
  • Make a quieter engine

When 2003.5 came to be, the Ford Powerstrokes 6.0L were out on the market. In stock form this was a consumer dream. The 6.0L engine met all emission standards and passed all testing performed during research and development. Obviously stock vehicles have been factory tested, so they are thought to be more reliable, which is mostly true for 6.0L engines. 6.0L engines rarely experience failures when operating at stock power levels. But let’s be honest, why own a Diesel if you can’t MAX IT OUT! This seems to be the area where 6.0L engines are having trouble, because now with aftermarket modifications your now turning more rpm, fueling heavier, and creating more heat and higher cylinder pressures. But Orange County Diesel feels that aftermarket modifications aren’t bad for 6.0L engines, they just have to be the RIGHT aftermarket product!

Here is a list of common problems of the Ford Powerstroke 6.0L 2003.5-2007

  • Turbo Failure
  • Variable Geometry Turbo Vanes Sticking
  • Leaking Oil Under Turbo
  • Rough Idle Related to the Fuel Injection Control Module
  • Fuel Injection Control Module Calibration(s)
  • Fuel Injection Control Module Harness Wear
  • Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve Sticking
  • Exhaust Gas Recirculation
  • Blown Head Gasket Cooler
  • Oil Cooler
  • Oil Rail Plug(s) Leaking Oil
  • Sticking Spool Valve Inside Injector
  • Cracked Intercooler Boot
  • Coolant Leak
  • High Pressure Oil Pump Leaking Oil

Want more power and better fuel economy?

It all starts with airflow. The more air that your engine breathes, the more oxygen it receives. More oxygen results in a better combustion. Better combustion translates into more power and better fuel economy. This is why your vehicle runs better on cool mornings than on hot afternoons as cool air is denser and contains more oxygen. You can feed your engine more oxygen by reducing the restriction of the airflow. OC Diesel has the full line of S&B Precision Cleaning and Oiling Kits to breathe new life into your performance filters.

Get your RV ready for Camping Season

It’s the time of year to get that RV back in shape for some winter camping trips!! Here are some general tips that will help  steer you toward a stress-free season on the road:

  1. Clean it up and air it out:  Open all roof vents and windows and then remove any pest control items you may have placed during storage.
  2. Check for damage: Look for deterioration of seals around doors, roof vents and windows and reseal as necessary.
  3. Check all lights. Make sure headlights, taillights, brake lights and turn signals are all functioning properly.
  4. Examine the hitch system for wear, loose bolts and cracks.
  5. Inspect the tires. Check for cracks, worn treads and correct tire pressure.
  6. Inspect the engine. Change the engine oil, spark plugs, and filters.
  7. Check the battery.
  8. Drain and flush the entire system of the nontoxic antifreeze you used before placing the RV into storage and replace with the proper coolant.
  9. Check for cracks in hoses and fan belts and replace if necessary.
  10. Flush the water system.
Prepare for a safe season. After checking all mechanical components, it’s always a good idea to inspect your safety equipment. This means installing new batteries in flashlights and smoke detectors, and restocking the first-aid kits.
Check your coverage. After making these routine checks, don’t forget to review your insurance policy to make sure it meets your current needs.
