Re: Decission

Neither, these pumps are junk for a 6.0. Just get a stock replacement if your going to stay mostly stock.

Re: Decission

Agreed

i would rather buy an OEM than put on a free Fass or Airdog

I also wouldn't be "convinced" My pump was bad I would know for a fact if it was fried because I watch the fuel PSI
and would trouble shoot a few things first like fuel pickup and filters

Re: Decission

I bought the truck about 4 months ago and put a egr delete in, afe intake, turbo back exhaust and tuned it with sct, i throw the same code every day reading fuel pump circuit low, as of right now i know i have bad glow plugs, i took it to some local diesel shops where they told me besides the fact of my glow plugs being bad i prolly have a couple of bad injectors and something may be wrong with the pump

Re: Decission

There are plenty of so called diesel shops that have no friggen clue what they are talking about. Their idea of diagnosis is throw new parts at it until the problem is no more, on your dime. Just saying....

So it runs fine once its up to operating temps?

Thats the only code your throwing?

I agree with Zmann. I wouldn't buy a pump for it quite yet.

Re: Decission

Bad glow plugs will set codes, when you start it cold in the morning any white smoke? No smoke, glow plugs are ok. I would unplug the ficm and clean the plug. People have also had issues with the inertia switch causing this code, so as long as the pump is running i would go with it. Would be a good idea to put a fuel pressure gauge in. This would give you the ability to watch the operation of the fuel pump.

Have you changed the fuel filters? This is a given when buying a new truck. They are expensive and are rarely changed when the owner knows they are not keeping the truck. You can change the fuel filters and the glow plugs yourself. No reason what so ever to take it to a shop for any of these items. You could even do the injectors but that is advanced but if you are brave, very handy and do the research you can find tons of videos and write ups. Just search ytube.

The 6.0 has been such a problem child most owners work on their own trucks to not go broke. This means just about every repair is documented and most are do-able in the driveway. Did my glow plugs a few years back...white smoke that went away after a minute or so. The white smoke smelled like unburned diesel. Pull out the plastic wheel liners and the glow plugs are right there...

Re: Decission

Only time ive seen white smoke was in the winter, truck runs like crap even after it has reached normal running temps. It would prolly be smart of me to check my filters..
Ive also recently had problems due to my fuel tank wich is a aftermarket 60 gal.
Recently drained fuel and water seperator because a month ago the truck was spuddering and kicking as if it had something in the fuel.
Saving up for gauges at the moment ( egts and fuel rail )
