Coolant Pressure / "Head Gasket" Test on a 6.0L Powerstroke

***PLEASE READ THIS!*** This test can help determine if your 6.0L (or any other engine really) has a blown head gasket. However, on a 6.0L it can also help determine OTHER issues as well, such as a bad EGR cooler, or in my case - it lead to diagnosing a bad OIL cooler! In order to distinguish between a head gasket and an EGR issue, you have to take into account OTHER symptoms, such as coolant loss, smoke, and oil condition. Overall PRESSURE is really NOT the problem! It's how QUICKLY it gets there! Your ove, this is NORMAL - especially if pulling a trailer or climbing a long grade. Overall pressure can climb to 15+psi simply due to combination of a full or overfilled system, and high (but normal) coolant temperature. Too much temperature and you will overpressure the system and overheat if you push it far enough! More videos to come!

How to Test Head Gasket
** Please see my other videos on this topic* Thx! This video is intended for those who would like to know how to confirm a damaged head gasket on a vehicle prior to making the decision to invest a lot of money for repair. My apologies for the camera focus- next video I will pay closer attention, but the information needed is viewable. Further research should be done on the risks of overheating to the engine block and such. This video is meant to simply show a 'how to' on the test method I used quite often when professionally working on vehicles, the results of which are based on chemistry and industry-standards of the time (1990's). I hope you find this video useful. RI.





My 6.0L Powerstroke Oil Cooler Replacement
It had to be done... 2006 Ford F-350, 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel, ~130k miles. All original engine except for the FICM, alternator, and the STC fitting. Only mods at the time were a 3.5" down pipe to a 4" straight pipe. Nothing actually FAILED, but it would have happened, so this was technically preventative maintenance. This oil cooler issue caused high coolant pressure as a result of isolated high temps in the EGR cooler, which were caused by lack of coolant flow from the oil cooler! And of course high oil temperature compared to the coolant temp...





2007 Ford F250 4x4 6.0 Powerstroke Diesel Head Gasket Leak Test
Want to say thanks to 1PUGLIFE, and to POWERSTROKEHELP here on youtube for coming up with this cheap PSI guage to help determine if my head gaskets are blown on my truck. The final outcome isn't good. As you see in the video a normal truck under a load should run somewhere around 6 to 8 PSI, but my truck the PSI reached 17 PSI. Final conclusion is the truck is going to need head gaskets. Total cost for the whole job is roughly $2200. I will be installing new ARP Head Studs, Ford Head Gaskets, and other various misc new gaskets when truck is apart. Truck currently has an EGR delete on it.
