Need Help w/ Bullet Proofing Process
Hi. Am the original owner of an '08 E-350 6.0 Sportsmobile. Has a Salem-Kroger 4x4 conversion. Stock motor, serviced at appropriate intervals at Ford dealer. At 75k miles, 100 miles from home, it starts knocking loudly, loosing power and sending up lots of blue/grey smoke.
Want to get it "bullet-proofed as part of the repair. After reading lots on line, I thought a B-P remote oil cooler, remote filter mount, new B-P EGR cooler and B-P water pump would give me a good, reliable motor. Talked to B-P in Mesa today (by phone) and was told since I had 4 WD, the remote oil cooler and remote oil cooler could NOT be installed. What are other E-350 owners doing to "bullet-proof" their engines?
