I have a rockin 7.3 and my nefew bought a 6.0 a couple years ago. its a 03 model, has about 160,000 on it now. im more comfortable workin on my 7.3 but i need some help for my nefews 6.0. he was drivin it down the road about 50 mph and she started to lose power, he pulled over and it died and he couldnt get it to restart. anyway he changed fuel filter on top, had a little problem getting fuel up there to prime it but got it done , still wouldnt fire, hauled it to the local ford dealer and heres the news, they said electric fuel pump was bad so he had them change it, they still couldnt get it to run, now they called and said hpop
failed and it pumped filings into the screen till the screen ruptured and sent some metal filings into the injectors. they said he needs new HPOP
SENSOR $187.15, IPR
SENSOR $296.00, INTAKE GASKET SET $107.83, EGR
VALVE $273.00, 8 INJECTORS $364.00 EACH X 8= 2912.00. GRAND TOTAL 4574.83 PLUS LABOR AND TAX. LABOR WAS QUOTED AT $105.00 PER HOUR. I need some advice. He just graduated from high school and is very mechanically inclined. He can do this himself, i dont think all 8 injectors are bad but how do you test them? second he has done no mods to this truck, what can he do for replacment parts other than the original? I know some talk on EGR
valves on the 6.0s, do you bypass the or block them off? His HPOP
, replace it with original or after market with higher pressures? He doesnt want to do things that are going to give him engine failures! When he bought the truck I talked down on the 6.0 for reliability and told him not to chip it or mess with it so he wouldnt have this happen so he left it bone stock, but since he has to start replacing parts, what should or shouldnt he do? Ive got my 7.3 worked over pretty good and shes dependable, I dont know what way to steer him.
