    The 6.0 gets a very bad rap, one of mine runs like a banshee and has a lot of well used miles on it. My other has 130,000 miles on the odometer and has yet to have ANY problems with it. The secret is deleting the egr and changing the oil regularly.

    The 6.0's aren't too bad, but they can be catastrophic if you don't do something at the first sight of problems. If you open the hood of the truck and there is any white residue anywhere on the motor or air box or anywhere... Close the good and go home. That means that your head studs are already gone, coolant is in the cylinders, and it gets worse from there.

    LISTEN TO ME right NOW! Go onto google and start to research 6.0 Powerjokes before you buy one. When you don't understand what EGR, DPF, regen, head studs, variable vain turbos, etc means, then go back to google and search the words. There is a ton of information about the common issues that you will be able to understand. Forums everywhere talk about them, so you will get the lingo pretty quick.

    It will help a ton though, because you'll know what to look for. Personally I do like them, I think its an OK motor with an awesome transmission. There are ways to make them more reliable but quite honestly I haven't seen any that are even close to being bulletproof. Know what you're buying and the price you should buy it at!
