    Sounds interesting. Can you go into a little more detail on how to do this and how to get the output result.

    IIRC, most of the problems that Ford had with the 6.0 and 6.4 were not found on the Navistar versions of the same engines. The reason being that Ford used slightly different emissions equipment (EGR cooler for one) which caused many of their problems.

    Hello Furu, Yes, I will....I'm bouncing around in my boat as much as I can this week, but I'll get the details from my truck and write it up. This might be helpful to buyers of used vehicles...especially when a used commercial vehicle with low miles becomes available. IMO, Lots of Idle time is not good for a diesel.

    If I'm not mistaken ,, Cummins used / uses water cooled EGR on the 6.7

The Dealer would replace the original lift pump if it failed and locate the new lift pump into the fuel tank. I didn't want them to modify or touch my truck so I kept it original.

    Thanks for the info! What's your opinion on me replacing my pump as preventive maint?

    Yeah I had around 60,000 when the calipers started dragging. They get a good salt bath in the winter .

He says the Fire Dept has already stated the next rescue trucks won't be a Fords due to the many problems they have had with their rescue trucks. I forget what he said it cost every time the truck goes to the shop to have the cab pulled just to work on the engine , but it isn't cheap.. Pull the cab just to work on the engine ????? Now that's a better Idea !!!!. The only good diesel that ford built was the 7.3...That 1 good engine hardly makes up for the many bad diesels ford made.... Like I said , I've owned many dodge cars/ trucks over my life ...Never a rust issue... If I had had the rust problems that many here mention, I wouldn't have owned as many Dodges as I have owned. I currently also own an 07 Toyota tundra... I haven't had any issued with the Toyota. I've own several Chevy / Dodge vehicles as service vehicles... No problems. As previously stated,,, I will never own another Ford , as 1 was plenty

    I've heard of similar issues around here with the Ford EMS vehicles. Almost all of the vehicles have had their engines replaced at least once. Country I'm from switched to the kodiak style GM chassis and got away from the Fords.

    The Ford 7.3 engine was made buy Navistar (IH). Ford Diesel engine can't be trusted. Only people around here that have Ford Diesels are the rich horse folk. Cause they have money to burn anyway! (0:

    I'm waiting for a Toyota 1 ton with Diesel. That would be a sweet machine with a CAT, Cummins or Hino diesel in it! Still keeping my dodge cummins though! (0:

    That's not a truck problem. Its a salt problem that happens to all brands.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    Hi Firemanmike69,
    The 98.5-2002/2nd generation 24V Cummins Ram utilized a VP44 pump and when the lift pump failed it failed in an expensive way. 2003 started the 3rd Generation, common rail engines. The filter mounted lift pump was a consistent weak spot in the fuel delivery but the failure did not create bigger issues to the repair. I believe, that by 2005 all the diesel rams had the fuel tank pumps.

    Nissan Trucks are working with Cummins Diesel for an engine option in the Titan.
