Determine Why Your Injectors Have Failed
In a perfect world the injector should outlast the engine. Modern day fuel injectors are designed so that almost no internal parts touch themselves. This means they should not wear out. Wear starts when one of or a combination of the following conditions exist. The first is the introduction of water and dirt. When this happens the parts start contacting themselves and wear begins. The next would be lack of proper fuel flow and pressure. The fuel going through the injector does a few things. The fuel lubricates the injectors and also prevents the precision parts from coming in contact with each other. This means proper fuel flow and pressure are extremely important. The next important thing is proper voltage to the fuel injectors. Low voltage will cause the electrical solenoids on the injectors to work much harder and eventually causing damage leading to failure.
Clean Fuel: The fuel condition should be checked before any injector in installed. Water collects in a fuel Tank over time and can cause rust to develop. Changing the fuel filters is a must for the injector life. Replacing the fuel filters on every other oil change is a good idea.
Fuel Pressure: Fuel pressure should be checked before installing a new set of injectors. Low fuel pressure can result in cracked nozzles or shortened injector life. The powerstroke has a known problem of low fuel flow and pressure. The quick fix for a 6.0 powerstroke is to install an updated fuel pressure regulator spring and rebuild kit. This will increase fuel pressure making the injectors work better and last longer. The banjo bolts on the fuel line connections are a known fuel flow restriction point. The easiest fix is replacing the banjo bolt of the 6.0 with the bolts from the 6.4.The banjo bolts on the 6.4 allow for better fuel flow. By doing the things mentioned here you will achieve the proper fuel pressure needed to eliminate the problems associated with low fuel pressure and achieve longer life for your fuel injectors.
Injector Voltage: Proper injector voltage is a must. The voltage can be checked on the 6.0 powerstroke very easily. The Fuel Injector Control Module (FICM) supplies 48 volts to the injectors when triggered by the ECM. The FICM on the 6.0 powerstroke is located on the valve cover on the drive side toward the back of the engine. The FICM has a small cover that is oblong and has two bolts. Remove the cover and check the voltage going through the screws under the cover. Use a volt meter to check the voltage. Be careful not to touch the side of the module with the probe or this will short the module and cause damage. The FICM should produce 48 volts. The truck will run on as little as 30 volts but If the voltage is lower than 43 volts it would be a good idea to replace the FICM. We do offer an upgraded FICM that will product 58Volts. This makes the injectors work even better than ever. The next place for a voltage drop is the injector wiring harness. To check the harness pull on the harness with the engine running. If you notice any change in the engine this will be a sign of a bad harness and would need replacing.
Oil pressure at the injectors: The 6.0 powerstroke uses engine motor oil to fire the injectors. This is why the oil change cycle is so critical for proper injector operation. Oil leaks can appear in various places in the engine. The common places are the dummy plug in the oil rail. This is a good idea to replace when installing new injectors. The next place is the High Pressure Oil Manifold (HPOM) injector cup/nipples. The o ring under the cup/nipple fails and causes a low volume high pressure leak. That will eventually lead to a failed injector. The high pressure engine oil sprays on the top of the injector damaging the o ring seal going into the injector. Until recently the only fix for this would have been a new HPOM from the OEM. An economical repair is available now with the Injector Warehouse ISK606 injector cup/nipple repair kit. The ISK606 includes a new oil cup/nipple and o ring. A special tool #ISK607 is available for easy removal and installation. The tool also aligns the cup/nipples to the same orientation for ease of installation. During installation the nipple nut should be torqued to 75ft lbs. Replacing the HPOM cup/nipples is an inexpensive insurance for long injector service life.
If you need new injector more than likely you have one or more of these issues with your Engine. This information is directed toward the 6.0 powerstroke engine. The same basics minus the HPOM condition apply to all Diesel engines. Please check and repair these problems to prevent the same problem from happening again.
