Re: how many miles on your 6.0 smb?

I'm doing it wrong. Glad to know since I like to drive hard, and flat towing the Jeep is actually better? My big problem is I tend to not drive it unless on a trip. Guess I need to take it out more in between times.

Re: how many miles on your 6.0 smb?

I also agree to DRIVE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT . I have an 06 E350 6.0 work truck and BEAT it. ( Not mine so it is easier) 100,200 and the only thing it had replaced besides batteries is a vacuum pump. don't even use additives. Oil is just 15/40 petrolium not synthetic. One of the reasons I bought the 07 sporty that way. I think they do like to be driven regularly and hard. I try to keep the Sporty moving at least weekly.

lol @ "DRIVE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT"

This makes sense. I will drive it once a week to work.

Now the question is where do i take it for the vane cleaning.

Strange but true, I've had good experiences with Sunset Ford in N. Hollywood. They have a very large truck service center and see a lot of Ford diesels.

But I bet that Hubert at South Bay Auto Care (formerly Bob's Brake and Alignment) could do the turbo cleaning too. May be worth giving him a call to ask.
