An Accessible Solution to the 6.0 Liter Power Stroke's Well Known Reliability Problems

Just about every pickup owner prizes and appreciates reliability. Unfortunately, even some of the most popular trucks end up being less reliable than would be hoped.

Pickups equipped with Ford's 6.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine, for instance, frequently exhibit problems that have been tied directly to certain design decisions. Truck owners can overcome such problems by installing the Fully Bulletproof Diesel Package of upgraded parts.

The Best Way to Improve the Reliability of Certain Ford Trucks

The introduction of the 6.0-liter Power Stroke engine was a major move for Ford, as the previous entry in the series had clearly reached the end of its competitive run. While the 6.0-liter Power Stroke boasts quite a few notable improvements compared to earlier engines, it also includes some baffling design features that detract from its reliability.

A highly regarded aftermarket parts maker, however, has assembled a kit that addresses all of these well-known problems. The bulletproof diesel package designed for the 6.0-liter Power Stroke makes common issues like the following much less likely to occur:

Bypass filter clogging. Like many other engines meant for heavy duties, the 6.0-liter Power Stroke includes a two-stage oil filtration system. While the full-flow filter that does most of the work generally functions well, a critical supporting component is known to be troublesome. The bulletproof 6.0 Power Stroke relocates this bypass filter such that problems with it become a lot less likely to develop. In addition to preventing immediate issues, that can save an engine from a great deal of avoidable wear over the years.

EGR breakdowns. The exhaust gas recycling (EGR) system in the 6.0-liter Power Stroke is another universally acknowledged source of trouble. As with quite a few other popular engines, the EGR cooler that ships with the 6.0-liter Power Stroke by default is prone to breaking under heavy usage. An upgraded cooler that makes use of higher quality materials and a more robust layout helps rule such problems out. Compared to the common response of disabling the EGR system entirely, this makes for a less-invasive solution.

An Effective, Accessible Way to Solve Many Common Problems

With the same kit addressing a number of other widespread issues, installing this package has proved to be a great way to improve the reliability of many Ford trucks. Since just about every pickup truck owner will appreciate those kinds of results, the popularity of this particular product should not be difficult to understand.
