    yes call ford it sounds to me like the dealers tech is just throwing parts at it, it sounds to me like the EGR is coked up, which is common if you let them idle to much. these engines need a high idle circuit in my opinion so they won't do this.

Most Ford 6.0l engines are junk, they were poorly designed from the beginning. I would stop going to that dealer and find one that knows powerstrokes. Most dealers like to just change out parts until they find the problem (especially with diesels).
I have seen the dealers change HPOP pumps, injectors and harnesses and cylinder heads to try and solve the problem you are having. The last one I saw the dealer screw up, they did all the above mentioned, charged $6500 and it still didn't work. They then said it needed a new engine and it would be $14,000.
Cut your losses and dump the truck. If you can afford it, sell that truck and buy an 02-03 with the 7.3 diesel. That is one of the best trucks ford ever made.

STOP TAKING IT TO THE STEALERSHIP!!!! Then fix the truck and sell it. The 04 diesel fords were bad, they fixed some bad designs and they are better after 05 model years but the combination of this and the fact that it is obviously a lemon. You cant keep diong this, its not right.

Is this a diesel? If so have you had the oil changed lately and used the correct weight shown in the owner's manual. Dirty oil will cause this condition. So change the oil even if it was done at the correct milage. Also has an active fault code test been done and a stored code read done? do that.

Mazda 6 2o diesel replaced turbo new unit same


There is a oil drain return from the turbo charger to the sump. If the sump oil level covers the outlet into the sump, oil will build excess pressure tin the turbo causing the sealing rings to leak oil in to the intake manifold. This would cause smokey exhaust and loss of oil. Try this. Drain the sump completely, refill with the exact quantity of oil to Mazda spec. Dip the oil and if the new oil level is lower than the full mark on the dipstick, you have found the cause of the problem. Mark this new level with a scriber or file and fill only to this new level. Hope this is the solution.

04 f250 diesel cranks but won't start


this is an oil pressure problem, either a sensor is not sensing enough oil pressure, or the high pressure pump is not building enough pressure(possibly leaking or head is leaking). this engine requires 450 psi minimum oil pressure at the injectors to actuate the injectors.

Oil leak on top of engine behind turbo


MY 2001 7.3 was leaking the same way. The dealer said the o'rings under the pedestal were leaking. I had the dealer replace the o'rings. By the time I got home, it was leaking again. Called the service department and told the manager,and they put on a new pedestal and o'rings. They only charged me half price for the pedestal and no labor. That did stop the leaks.
