what do you mean when you say the cylinders collapse? what did you have repaired the first time?

My lifter arm broke the first time I had it replaced then two months later it happened a second time but this time it was just stuck in place the mechanics shop told me it had something to do with my cylinders

if it's just a rocker arm problem I would look at the engine oiling system for a problem. The rocker arms breaking or being a problem shouldn't be that expensive to repair. Much cheaper than replacing a motor. And they have had a pretty good record with the 6.0L
