Question about 2003 Ford F350 Super Duty DRW SuperCab
I am trying to find out if the 6.0 TDI is prone to gasket and seal leaks. This is my third time replacing the Front main seal ( 62,000 miles ) I had to replace the head gaskets and valve cover gaskets at 60,000 miles. Is this a common problem or is there a trick to replacing them. I am getting frustrated not having a reliable truck and my machanic is losing money having to fix it all the time under his warranty. Thanks
Ok make sure to check or replace the unexpensive pcv valve
if that one is cloged it will coause all kind of leaks even whit new seals
and on the head gaskets problem i will recomend to get your radiator serviced or replaced because 90% of the mechanics check your radiator for cloged lines but they always do it at the top and by gravity all the garbache acumulate on the bottom, if you don't beleive it ask your mechanic hos does he inspect your radiator
