Ssm 19639 1994-2008 Multiple Vehicles - Diesel Engines Using Cj-4 Oil And Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel - Needs More Frequent Oil Change Interval
On All Model Year Diesels, Oil Change Intervals Need To Be Reduced By Half When Using Cj-4 Oil And Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel (500 Ppm Sulfur Maximum), Or Any Diesel Fuel Containing Greater Than 15 Ppm Sulfur. When Cj-4 Oil And Fuels Containing Greater Than 15 Ppm Sulfur Are Used, The Oil Degrades At A Faster Rate Due To Increased Acid Levels Requiring A Shortened Oil Change Interval.

Ssm 19484 1999-2007 7.3l/6.0l/4.5l Diesel - Clean The Charge Air Cooler (cac) System After Certain Turbo Or Engine Failures - Service Tip
On A 7.3l, 6.0l, Or 4.5l Diesel Equipped Vehicle If The Turbocharger Is Replaced For An Internal Oil Leak Or Compressor Shaft Failure, The Charge Air Cooler (cac) Should Be Checked For Oil Contamination And Consequently Cleaned If Oil Contamination Is Found. The Cac Should Also Be Inspected And Cleaned Of Oil Or Metal Contamination After An Engine Failure That May Have Pushed Oil/metal Into The Cac Due To Excessive Crankcase Pressure. A Thorough Cleaning Of The Cac System Is Necessary To Prevent Further Drivability Or Engine Concerns.

Ssm 19417 2003-2007 F-super Duty/2003-2005 Excursion 6.0l - Watch For Oil Flow From The Base Engine Oil Pump
Some 2003-2007 F-super Duty And 2003-2005 Excursion Vehicles Equipped With A 6.0l Diesel May Exhibit Low Base Engine Oil Pressure Caused By A Leak In The High Pressure Oil System. If A High Pressure System Leak Is Severe, The High Pressure Pump May Use A Larger Volume Of Oil Than The Base Engine (gerotor) Pump Can Produce While Cranking. If Base Engine Oil Pressure Is Low, Remove Oil Filter, Hold Down The Oil Drain Valve (left Side Of Housing) With A Screwdriver And Crank The Engine While Watching For Oil Flow From The Base Engine Oil Pump. If Flow Is Present, Use The Updated Diagnostics For The High Pressure Oil System (electronic Version Of Pc/ed, Section 4, Step 10e). If There Is No Flow At The Oil Filter Housing Diagnose The Base Engine Oil System First (workshop Manual Section 303-01c).

Ssm 19389 2003-2007 Multiple Vehicles 6.0l Diesel - No Start Condition With Low Injection Control Pressure (icp) - Service Tip
Some Aftermarket Oil Filters Are Of The Incorrect Size And Fit For 6.0l Diesel Equipped Vehicles. This May Cause Oil Flow Restrictions Or Drain Back, And May Result In A Crank No Start/hard Start Condition With Low Or Slow To Build Injection Control Pressure(icp). When Performing Normal Diagnostics, Inspect The Oil Filter For Correct Fit And Application. Inspect For Damage To The Oil Filter Stand Pipe, Check Valve, And Oil Filter Housing Lid. Install A Filter That Fits Properly, Such As A Motorcraft Fl-2016.

Ssm 18976 2003-2006 F-super Duty/2004-2006 E-series/2003-2005 Excursion - 6.0l Oil Leak - Rear Main Seal Or Bed Plate
Some 2003-2006 F-super Duty, 2003-2005 Excursion And 2004-2006 E-series Vehicles With A 6.0l Engine May Exhibit An Oil Leak That Appears To Be Coming From The Lower Crankcase (bed Plate) Or Rear Main Seal. Clean The Suspect Area And Add Dye To Determine Leak Source. Inspect For Cam And/or Crank Sensor O-ring Leakage That Results In Oil Travel Giving The Appearance Of A Lower Crankcase Or Rear Main Leak. Cam And Crank Sensor O-rings Are Available For Service. Lower Crankcase Leaks Can Be Caused By Removal Of The Front Or Rear Cover Without Cutting The "t" Joint Areas. When Servicing The Front Cover Apply A Bead Of Rtv Sealant At The Crankcase To Lower Crankcase Seam. When Servicing The Rear Engine Cover Apply A Bead Of Sealant At The Crankcase To Lower Crankcase Seam And The Oil Pump Cover Joint.

Ssm 18942 1994-2006 Multiple Diesel Vehicles - Drain & Flush Cooling System With Motorcraft Vc-1 If Contaminated With Oil.
Some 1994-2006 Vehicles Equipped With A 4.5l, 6.0l Or 7.3l Diesel Engine May Have Oil Contamination In The Cooling System Due To An Oil Cooler Failure. Once Oil Cooler Repairs Are Completed, Clean Cooling System With Motorcraft Vc-1 Coolant Flush Following Workshop Manual Procedure In Section 303-03, Flushing - Engine And Radiator.
Effective Date: 11/17/2005 Ssm 18926 2005 Excursion/2005-2006 E-series/f-super Duty - 6.0l - No Icp From Injector Seal/spring Clip
Some 2005 Excursion And 2005-2006 F-super Duty, And E-series Vehicles Equipped With A 6.0l Diesel May Exhibit A Hard Start, Or No Start Condition With Low Or No Injection Control Pressure (icp). During Normal High Pressure System Diagnosis, Be Sure To Inspect Where The High Pressure Oil Rail Seats Into The Top Of Each Fuel Injector For A Damaged Or Missing Seal Ring And/or Spring Clip. If Components Are Missing, They Must Be Located Or Engine Damage Will Result. The Most Likely Locations Are In The Top Of The Head, In The Oil Pan, Or In The Pick Up Screen. If The Components Are Not Found, Inspect The Low Pressure Oil Pump And Regulator.

Ssm 18283 2003-2005 Super Duty F-series/excursion 6.0l - Oil Leak From The Oil Filter Cover - Service Tip
Some 2003-2005 Super Duty F-series And Excursion Vehicles With A 6.0l Engine May Exhibit An Oil Leak From The Oil Filter Cover. This Condition May Be Due To Incorrect Torque Applied To The Oil Filter Cover, Or A Concern With The Oil Filter Cover O-ring. When Performing An Oil Change, Torque The Oil Filter Cover To 18 Lb-ft (25 Nm) And Install The New Oil Filter Cover O-ring That Is Supplied With Replacement Oil Filter. Lubricate The O-ring With Clean Engine Oil For Proper Sealing. If There Is A Repeat Oil Leak Inspect For Burrs On The Oil Filter Housing That May Be Cutting The O-ring.

19420 2003-2007 MULTIPLE VEHICLES 6.0L - DAMAGED/MISSIN OIL FILTER STANDPIPE DUE TO OVERHEATING
SOME 2003-2007 6.0L ENGINE EQUIPPED VEHICLES MAY EXHIBIT A CRANK NO-START AS A RESULT OF ENGINE OVERHEATING. BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIR EXAMINE THE OIL FILTER STAND PIPE FOR SIGNS THAT IT IS DAMAGED OR MISSING. IF THE STAND PIPE IS DAMAGED/MISSING, PERFORM NORMAL WORKSHOP MANUAL DIAGNOSTICS TO ISOLATE THE CAUSE OF THE OVERHEAT. ONCE THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE OVERHEAT IS FOUND, PERFORM BASE ENGINE DIAGNOSTICS TO ISOLATE IF ANY OTHER ENGINE DAMAGE HAS OCCURRED. THE OIL FILTER STANDPIPE WILL BE DAMAGED WHEN TEMPERATURE'S EXCEED 350 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT. WITH THESE TEMPERATURES BASE ENGINE OR HIGH PRESSURE OIL SYSTEM DAMAGE CAN OCCUR.

19251 2003-2007 F-SUPER DUTY/2003-2005 EXCURSION/2004-2006 E-SERIES 6.0L - PERCEIVED EXCESSIVE FAN NOISE
SOME 6.0L EQUIPPED VEHICLES MAY HAVE PERCEIVED EXCESSIVE FAN NOISE. FAN SPEED, FAN NOISE AND FUEL CONSUMPTION ALL WILL INCREASE FROM DRIVING CONDITIONS THAT INCLUDE TRAILER TOWING, HILL CLIMBING, HEAVY LOADS, HIGH SPEED AND HIGH AMBIENT TEMPERATURE, INDIVIDUALLY OR IN COMBINATION. THE AMOUNT OF FAN NOISE INCREASES AND DECREASES AS ENGINE POWER REQUIREMENTS AND VEHICLE DRIVING CONDITIONS CHANGE AS THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN. THIS IS TO BE EXPECTED, AND IS NORMAL TO THE OPERATION OF THE VEHICLE, AND SOMETIMES CAN BE MISTAKEN FOR TRANSMISSION DOWNSHIFTING OR SLIPPAGE, LACK OF POWER, OR OTHER ABNORMAL CONDITION, WHICH IT IS NOT. HIGH FAN NOISE MIGHT ALSO BE HEARD WHEN THE ENGINE IS FIRST STARTED, AND SHOULD NORMALLY DECREASE AFTER DRIVING FOR A SHORT TIME.
