Re: Stiction Fiction

So I guess I should be saving up?

Are you saying you haven't replaced your injectors yet? If that's the case, then ABSOLUTELY. It's not a matter of if, only a matter of when. And also a matter of "did something fail first?" And "what damage did the injectors cause..."

Re: Stiction Fiction

The shop pulled em and SAID (at 90K) they looked OK during the bullet proofing. But with the 6.0 it seems wise to stay ahead of the game.
What else do I need to spend money on... Keeps me busy in a bad kind away.

Re: Stiction Fiction

This is well said and on topic:

"Stiction is a poor choice of a made up word and is misleading. The actual issue was caused by too much oil in the area between the spool valve and the open/close coil. an injector in which the soil valve is worn will allow too much oil to bypass the spool valve, this oil will cause a hydraulic latching when the opposite coil is activated and the valve is pull in the other direction. This condition only happens when oil temps are below about 140-160 degrees in all the test results I have seen or performed on trucks that had cold start issues. Every spool valve I have seen except for the earliest have the cut machined into them.

This causes the injection event to be delayed or extend the injection or miss entirely. The only injectors that were changed were those prior to 9/27/03 date of manufacture. Those injectors are different than all later models following 9/27/04-10. Ford does not offer "new" injectors for the 6.0 all are reman. Which are essentially new other than the main body, Alliant power is he only one offering a new injector
That I know of unless someone has started making them recently."

This guy is well versed with the 6.0. I trust him with my van and did an amazing job!

I don't know that I'd recommend replacing injectors preventatively. They actually don't all fail on their own. Many (or most) are damaged by a FICM or high pressure oil problem. I just seems rare for high-mile 6.0 to make it on all stock injectors, so I definitely recommend having a rainy day fund set aside. And, maybe more important is keep up on your gauge monitoring (fuel pressure, FICM voltage, temps etc) so if something goes wrong, it won't wipe out your injectors before you realize there's a problem. NOTE: I don't really consider 100,000 miles "high-milage". Diesels should be able to make 300,000 easy.... Just takes a little more TLC for this one.

Re: Stiction Fiction

Three times I've had to have an injector replaced on the road. When not under warranty it was $1900-2000 and 1-5 days, under warranty still took the 5 days. The time may hurt more than the money. After you get towed to a place that can/will work on a 6.0 in a van.

Oooh. Two stroke oil does make it quieter! 1/2oz/gallon adds up. Gonna see if 1/4oz/gal does as well.

Re: Stiction Fiction

I did this with the Amsoil ATF transmission oil. 1/8-1/4 oz. I will try 1/2 oz/gallon which seems like so little.
