I think the doc is right on with this one.The service records indicate the motor was hydro locked due to head gasket failure and it would not crank over.
If thats the case and it has bent rods and the dealer did this work under warranty at 76000 miles can i get them to stand good for it now at 93000? just asking thanks
Must be a N.Y. kind of thing..Out here there is a BIG STICKER in the window that has two boxes: WARRANTY and an explanation with cost or,the dealer i bought it from in N.Y. was by law supposed to give me a warranty with the truck
Yep - one or two engines that had programmers on them. Melted pistons. Another thing that causes that is excessive oil carryover in the CAC system from an elevated oil level condition (once most common on 6.4L engines) or a turbocharger failure that leaked oil into the intake side. Excessive oil carryover becomes an un-metered fuel source especially if the CAC becomes partially filled. This can also cause a runaway condition. EGR cooler failures on 6.0L engines usually do not cause engine wide damage unless it it a catastrophic failure during operation. They typically just font fail like that. In any event, if you have low compression affecting the entire engine you have a systematic problem whether it be poor air filtration, overfueling or the causes I mentioned you need to figure that out before completing repairs.ford_doctor have you ever seen a 6.0L have no compression on a couple of cylinders and low compression on all others? It is an 06 F350
I have to disagree with you there. A blown HG can indeed cause coolant in a cylinder. It happened to me, and my truck did not have an EGR cooler on it. It hydrolocked on cranking. I was pretty sure a HG was blown prior to this as it was eating coolant, blowing steam out the exhaust, and I'd had one or two days when it almost locked up on cranking in the morning, but I was just able to get it to start (must have ingested just enough coolant that it didn't lock and allowed it to be pushed out on the exhaust stroke).First, there is a flaw in your statement. 6.0L cylinder head gasket failures DO NOT result in coolant in the cylinders.
