high mileage 6.0s, who's got one??

i remember reading a post a while back about 7.3's with 300,000+ miles and how "the days of those diesels are gone with the new 6.0" i was just wondering who has a 6 liter with 200,000 miles, close to, or even more. what kind of problems have you had? just regular wear and tear or is all kinds of bad stuff happening? can this engine make it?

re: high mileage 6.0s, who's got one??

I was at the auction today and saw one with 389K on an 03 6.0 and was running great. Gives me some hope with my 04 that has 112K.

BANDC,
What kind of issues have you had with your 6.0? My old truck (7.3) had 350,000 when sold and is still running well. I sold it to my neighbor so i see it often and wish i had kept it!

Almost 170,000 miles on my 2004 6.0 had the normal wear and tear you would expect.

Friend of mine has an 03 with over 300k. Early on he had a cracked turbo housing or something. But the only other thing is injectors. Now that the new flash is on his truck he hasn't lost any.

143,000 miles. EGR valve replaced at ~140,000 and a couple of minor oil leaks before that.

(Oil and fuel filter changes have been regular and frequent, oil analysis done often, and use Ford's diesel fuel additive in every tank.)

170,000 miles. one bad alternator. Delo 15-40 year round and 3,000 mile oil changes. I am very careful about turbo cool down but it might have been just as trouble free anyway. I just don't drive it hard. This is my utility work truck and idles for long periods of time with seemingly no ill effect but the long idle times are alway followed by at least 60 miles of highway driving.

working on an 04 E350 6.0 with 665,000 miles on it. Its a dept of corrections prisoner transport van that slid off into a ditch tearing off the oil filter housing. No oil, injectors dont work. Oasis says a few injectors, the torqueshift planetary recall but nothing else.

Wow. And you know they are not going to be treating it like it was their own.

How can the oil filter housing get torn off on a 6.0 by sliding into a ditch?
The oil filter on the 6.0 is up on top the engine. Sure this isn't a 7.3? They have the oil filter and housing on the bottom of the engine.
