agreed, i have to say this was the worstsbchevfreak said:If I had to say the WOSRT, absolute useless piece of scrap iron they ever built, with (imho) NO redeeming qualities, I'd have to call the 255 v8 in the early 80's mustangs.
I thought you were meaning common engines....
Yeah? Well, so was the SBC (an early first attempt at an OHV, that is). Pontiac, Buick, Olds, Caddy and Chrysler Corp. all had good "first attempts" at OHV engines, too. No pass forthcoming from me!stepside454 said:in there defense, the y-block was early first attempt at an ohv, so I can give a pass on that
LOL And more trucks in the service bay's then on the road.barnym17 said:The 6.o only has a few weak points such as egr coolers, fuel pumps(electric supply pump), head gaskets, head bolts, turbo vanes sticking, egr valves sticking, pcm programing problems, aftercoolers exploding, Not to much just expect to pay at least the purchase price of the vehicle in repairs as soon as the warranty is over.
bentwings said:I have to agree with the 6.0 diesel being bad. I had the privilege?? of working on the block machining line in Huntsville. I got to see first hand the major problems of this motor. My partner and I disassembled 200 warantee engines as a side project one Christmas vacation. I think we saw at least one example of every part broken or destroyed in this group. 99 % were ".....just driving down the road and it went.......".
You really need to plan on serious $$$ maintenance on these. There are a lot of them on the road or in the shop.
