2006 F350 6.0 Injectors

I have a '06 F350 with 6.0 liter diesel engine. Ford put a brand new engine in my truck at 90,000 miles. I now have 130,000 miles on truck and have had to put in at LEAST 6 injectors. I am religious about changing oil at 3000 miles and fuel filters every other oil change. I run ford recommended fuel conditioner in ever tank of diesel. I just cannot help but blow injectors out. What can i do to fix this??

Couple of things you need to check to start with.

1. Voltage check on the FICM (Fuel Injection Control Module)
2. Fuel pressure check.

I'm no pro, and I'm sure others will chime in. I believe the FICM has to be 48 volts or higher to work properly. There is an upgrade from dealer (Blue spring upgrade kit) that raises the fuel pressure and in turn, injectors work better...and last longer.

My bet would be weak fuel pressure. The blue spring kit will fix that. Low fuel pressure at WOT will kill injectors. If your FICM was bad you would probably notice something with drivability.

I did just a little preliminary research about this upgrade, with the blue spring. It seems pretty simple, and compared to what ive spent so far on injectors, pretty cheap.

Is there any negative possible effects of doing the upgrade spring kit??

Thanks for your help

Clattermac, I did my blue spring 3 weeks ago and noticed the jump off the line right away. Took me about an hour but if you're good with wrenches could go faster, there is lots of info on this site plus a youtube video that is very helpful also. Good Luck.
