Sometimes life really sucks if you own a 6.0L Powerstroke. Don't get me wrong, I love working on them. Let's be real here: there are some out there that nickle and dime you to death. Some owners out there just get the lemons and those lemons require fixing often. The Ford 6.0L Powerstroke engine has many common problems, but that is not what I am here writing about today. Today is about catastrophic failures and/or mistakes.
Sometimes your favorite technician makes a mistake. We all aren't perfect; It happens. Or maybe a previous mechanic didn't know what he was doing. So for those of you who like to have a good time, here is a few pictures of some "Ouch, how did that happen?" moments on real engines.
6.0L Power Stroke injector tip failure. The tip of the injector broke and traveled through the valve.
Man, I lost some of my pictures so sorry there isn't a lot to offer here. Send us some of your horror stories!
