I have a 2004 F-250 6. The green arrow is the connection to the ignition switch. Good luck and do take extra good care of that truck. Great motor maintence whore but great motor. I pick up my truck and drove it 10 miles same problem.
Plenty of cranking power, starter turns over strongly, plenty of fuel, no bad fuses, etc. Then I pulled the heads and I found the mess. But daily drivers and normal hauling are nothing outside of normal for these vehicles so long as a person takes care of the maintenance and is knowledgeable about how to use these vehicles and drive them properly. I have an 05 I purchased used with 8,000 miles on it back in 06. We needed it for our company. The high pressure oil pumps are only sold as a re-built unit… Same was with the ficm that also when out on me.
This is a duty-cycle-controlled solenoid that opens and closes to achieve the desired oil pressure. About an hour from the shop, the black smoke started to roll. Ford ended up giving us 2 options, To take back the truck and be s. The two screen captures in Fig. If you have an automatic, you'll have to use a socket and ratchet on the harmonic balancer bolt. I would be happy if ford would buy back this never ending money sucking 6. I have had the turbo changed twice, 2 injectors.
Inoperative components are simply replaced. I have replaced 1 injector at 189,000 miles. I could do my work at all afraid of damage on the rental truck. Worst news is my mechanic told me to get rid of it because all he sees is problems from trucks with the 6. Do you get excessive smoke when cranking? What does the vehecile act like if you rev the engine up in neutral? And other upgrades because I had done all my research.
To be stuck with huge repair bills what should I do to prevent any of that common problems from happening. No real other options other than driving off a cliff and collecting a bit of insurance money. I have to do the normal maintance. Good luck with your 06. I might even stand out in front of the dealership with a sign warning people.
Got wind of all the problems and the class action lawsuit and started researching. Stock is not good enough. I have an Edge Juice Programmer for my '04 6. There rear was solid black smoke wheels locked up and there was fire coming out from under the truck. However, under conditions where the throttle plate close uncommanded, this can also starve the engine of intake air flow when this happens, causing low power and smoke and possibly a no-start.
Keep in mind that these connection points will have O-rings sealing the system. The two codes after that were 327 and 328. I'll go ahead and pull the coil to check for high voltage leaks and probably replace it anyway. I Wow, I get so tired of hearing everyone whine and cry about their 6 liter, and oh how they got taken advantage of and got duped and wasted soooooo much money. Our problems began showing up around 90,000 miles.
Be an educated consumer and get it fixed right, or better yet fix the problem before it starts. I pulled the engine apart and found that when the two turbos were put on the plastic inlet to the turbo was broken and I found out that the engine has been sucking sand and dust directly into the turbo. This ensures that oil is available on initial start-ups. To be successful you need to have the right tools and technicians who understand how diesel systems work. For the guy that fixes the 6.
