This eLearning course covers the symptoms and preliminary diagnostics of a Ford Power Stroke 6.0L diesel truck that has a leaking cylinder head gasket concern. Different diagnostic tests that can be performed through use of the scan tool to aid in the validation of a failed cylinder head gasket are covered. The Power Stroke 6.0L Ford diesel engine has a host of inherent engine design flaws. Many different components of this engine architecture that can create similar symptoms to those you would experience on an application with failed head gaskets are examined. Read More

This eLearning course covers the steps involved to inspect all of the engine components after the cylinder heads have been removed from the Ford Power Stroke 6.0L diesel engine. Specific cleaning procedures necessary to prepare the engine parts for inspection are covered as well as procedures involved for checking the cylinder heads and engine block for flatness and straightness. Magnetic particle testing is performed to validate cylinder head casting integrity. The steps involved to pressure test the cylinder heads to test for cracks and coolant leak paths is reviewed. After all these tests are performed, it’s time to decide if the parts are able to reinstalled. Read More

This eLearning course examines the service of the cylinder head from the machine shop’s perspective. Cylinder head machining practices in order to restore a damaged cylinder head’s surface back to proper condition to be reinstalled are reviewed. Surface finish requirements necessary for the replacement MLS head gasket to work properly is addressed while practices and tooling requirements necessary to achieve it are discussed. Surface finish measuring with a profilometer will be demonstrated in video. Valve recession measuring will be overviewed, as this is a critical concern on a diesel engine’s cylinder head. Read More

This eLearning course examines the reassembly procedure on the Ford Power Stroke 6.0L diesel engine head gasket replacement. Proper head gasket and cylinder head fastener selections are explained and head torquing procedures required for the repair to be permanent are covered. Cylinder head clamp load, torque to yield bolts and MLS head gasket construction are defined so that all of the details of proper head gasket installation and torquing can be understood. Procedure and parts selection are everything when it comes to a long-lasting repair on this engine platform. Read More

This eLearning course discuss the steps involved to tear down the Ford 6.0L Power Stroke engine. Due to the size of the engine and the tight packaging between the frame rails, it is oftentimes easier to remove the cab of the truck when majorly servicing engine components such as cylinder heads. The steps involved for this procedure are discussed while demonstrating some shortcuts along the way. During the teardown process, several other key areas of concern on the 6.0L Power Stroke engine are highlighted.  Read More

Fuel trim data analysis is one of the most critical tools for drivability diagnosis and is thoroughly explained in this eLearning course. Diagnosis of fuel system pressure concerns for port fuel injection and gasoline direct injection fuel systems are identified and the use of the latest diagnostic tools are demonstrated through animations and videos. The causes of intake valve and combustion chamber carbon deposits are explained and a step-by-step video demonstrates walnut blasting cleaning procedures. Read More
