There are several reliability issues with the 6.0L Powerstroke. The most significant of these include EGR and engine oil cooler failure, as well as head gasket failure. Other common reliability issues incude variable-geometry turbo (VGT) issues, fuel-injection control module (FICM) failure, and fuel injection system failures, among others. It is interesting to note that the 6.0L engine has proven to be significantly more reliable in it’s original application, powering medium-duty International trucks. This can be attributed to significantly lower-horsepower tunes, as well as a more open engine compartment which allows for better airflow through the radiator and better heat dissipation from the engine.
We have experience in working on the 6.6 Duramax. If your Duramax has fuel system issues, lack of power, coolant loss, engine failure, check engine light, or DEF issues. Give us a call.
If you own an International VT365 you know they share some of the same problems with their sister engine the Ford 6.0L. But you may have a problem with Heavy Duty truck shops that don’t have experience working on these engines and worst don’t want to work on at all or small pickup shops that aren’t interested in working on them either. We’re happy to help, we can get your VT365 back to a great dependable engine. So if your having hard start problems when hot, smoking, coolant loss, random shut down, oil loss, or even no start we can get you back on the road at a reasonable cost. If you have questions about your truck feel free to give us a call. We also work on DT466’s, DT530, DT570 and more.
