DTCs: What Are They And What Causes Them?

Part 3

Published in the June 2008 Issue June 2008 Feature, PowerStroke

In the February and April issues of Diesel Tech, we introduced you to a new series of stories called DTCs.

The February issue covered the most common DTCs for 5.9L Cummins engines and the April issue covered the most common DTCs for the 6.6L Duramax engines. The final part in this series will cover the 6.0L Powerstroke engines. These engines are found in 2003-07 Ford Super Duties.
