Commonly, the engine’s high-pressure oil pump will fail or have leaking seals. The 6.0 HPOP pressurizes the engine’s oil to at least 3,000 psi before the oil compresses fuel in the injectors. Signs of a malfunctioning HPOP include an oil pressure reading outside the 600-700 psi range at idle or the 3,000-4,000 psi range while under load.
The 6.0’s oil cooler is also known to become clogged due to poor quality oil or residual sand from the manufacturing’s casting process. Routine maintenance and a 6.0 Powerstroke oil cooler gasket kit can help keep this part of the lubrication system functioning properly.
