Default 6.0 Fuel injectors

Today I changed the oil in my truck, and for the first couple minutes it ran afterwards it had a dead miss in it. And it did not go away with engine RPM. Which sucks because with 68k on an 06 I was not expecting to do injectors yet.

That being said, I was planning on doing EGR delete, 6.4 banjo bolts, oil cooler, and a couple other little things as soon as the weather is good enough to ride to work everyday. What kind of injectors should I look at getting? Stock or aftermarket? Who has the best price?
Thanks guys

Try the Rev-X oil additive first. Its kinda pricey but nowhere near the cost of injectors. Tons of guys have used it to clear up injector"stiction" issues with it. Worth a try before doing the full monty on injectors.

Rev-X is like putting a bandaid on a shotgun wound.

www.fanclutch.com, Superior Turbo and Injection, Detroit. Call their parts department, talk to Larry. Tell him I sent you.

Not neccessarily. If you have stiction issues and not a serious mechanical or electrical isssue on a 6.0 injector Rev-X can free them up and keep them alive for many thousands of more miles.

I had a similar issue to the OP at 80k miles on my 06'. Dead miss and real cranky cold starts. I dosed with Rev-X and my truck intantly ran like new again. There are many many more guys out there with similar experiences. After 25k more miles and one more dosing, my truck is still happy.

I am 100% anti-snake oil but this stuff works.

If you have scarred the plunger and barrel or have an electrical issue in the spool valve, obviously nothing but new sticks is going to help that.

Incorrect oil filter can led to low oil pressure to injectors = hard starting and missed.

Exactly. Motocraft or nothing. The aftermarket filters are shorter and don't always push the plunger all the way down. You also run the risk of oil bypassing the filter since they dont always seal all the way, or at all sometimes. If that happens, bye bye injectors. These things run rediculously tight tolerances. ANY trash will fubar them.

ive seen first hand being powerstroke certd on 6.0 and 6.4 engines that NOT using a motor craft filter on these engines will cost you big later on down the road. since the patented their filter the aftermarkets miss closing that bypass 100%, we did a test with wix filters they seemed to be the closest to motorcraft but they still bled off a few thousand gallons of unfiltered oil to the engine betwene services and also as mentioned above gthe bled the qt form the oil filter housing. its dry starting the vehicle everytime u fire it up. i work on a fleet with 200 6.0's, we saw a extreme failure rate injectors due to dirty oil eating orings in the oil rails and brand tubes which starves the injectors for oil and the combo the injectors shuttle valves beings scuffed and sticking, and the cups in the injectors also scuffing and sticking. in some extreme cases the injectors shuttle valve would get hung open and it would drip fuel in the cylinder, blow the tip off the injectors and send that motor south lol.

6.0 injectors have seen revisions since its intorduction but still are far from reliable. if you had a miss after changing your oil kepe an eye on it because you might be heading down a road that can empty your pockets fast.

i forgot to mention:

if your doing a egr delete u might want to look into also getting a new oil cooler. the coolant gets trashed form the egr cooler and will clog up the oil cooler. oil temp will also effect injectors believe it or not. if you do the oil cooler itll be a good time to inspect the screen that runs acorss the valley to the high pressure pump, more time then not the screens are broken through form debris and chunks of carbon. its not necessary but id look into it if you plan on keeping your 6.0 for the long haul

I use International filters in my truck. VT365 oil filter and VT275 fuel filters. Ford decided to use the V6 fuel filter housing system on the 6.0.

I was under the understanding Racor built the filters for Ford.

Also cert'd on 7.3/6.0/6.4/6.7, glad to be out of the dealer world, tired of getting fucked on warranty times.

Once you get stiction, you risk scoring the spool valve and having it hang or stick again, typically at the most inopportune time. Had one blow an injector top off, fill the crankcase with fuel and run away while I was driving it. Keyed the ignition off when the tach was at 4300, and the rpm kept climbing till it stopped. That was a neat experience

Common rail (6.4, 6.7) seem to be less problematic with injectors, the 6.4 likes to eat HPFP's though, but clean filters and fuel are KEY in the common rail stuff, as is with ANY diesel, but that 6.4 sure is particular.
