I had replaced Thermostate, Water pump, check brakes on truck and trailer witout any fruit full results. They refused to do anything more for us and actually acted like they were doing us a favor by sending that. Like they say never by the first 1. I bought my f-250 6. And it is shitty of Ford to not fix this out of warranty. Changed that and the oil cooler then decided to pay attention to the maintenance and stop neglecting it.
Ford knew there was a problem in the beginning, but it was not prevalent until quite a few years later, after they had replaced the 6. The failure usually occurs in the mornings. I dont want to jinx myself so I will be cautious here. The failure mileage was 60,000 and the current mileage was 124,702. I have had the turbo changed twice, 2 injectors. I would appreciate having his contact information.
On 2 occasions on the interstate, I barely avoided a catastrophic collision with 18-wheelers because my truck lost power going up a hill and the semi directly behind me kept his power on since I did not show any brake lights when I slowed, he almost took the corner off my trailer. Install the transmission cooler tube bracket and nut. I do not baby this truck I run a custom performance tune with my livewire ts tuner. I have been trying to sell it for the past year now with only being faced with new challenges time and time again with trying to get this thing running long enough to sell. We live out in the boonies and cannot afford another vehicle. Drove it out of town broke down, took it back 4 times, keeps breaking down, I swear to god I fking hate Fords now. Got to drive it maybe a couple of months after that.
If there is a law suite against Ford with this 6. Get there 25 miles down the road and wham! Our only debt is this freaking truck. Susie Roy My 2008 6. I own a 07 f-250 lariet 6inch lift on 35s. I learned the hard and expensive way, found good people to work on my trucks and help me to learn.
I tow weekly, constantly pulling uphill and she keeps going. It needed to be purchased and then Ford had to program it. Connect the ground cable and the ground stud. I will never own another Ford after having all these problems and not having a truck no one wants. The truck has been upgraded with Banks tuned monster exhaust, Banks Intake systems, and a BullyDog premium tuner.
Only 55k miles on the truck and it was treated like gold the whole time we had it. I have a 2005 f250 superduty 6. They are not designed to be mistreated or used as race cars… Hi Phil, I am glad you are having good luck with yor 6. But it does take an amount of being an educated and knowledgeable person, time, and money to overcome the problems. But I will change coolant and oil and all filter and see what happens at the worst is I have to learn more about the truck and just tear it down my self and fix it but all in all the truck is a good truck has 160000 miles on it got it used had to fix it right after I got it. I always faithfully maintained it. I do want everyone to know that Ford did me right in this situation.
See Ford Put the 6. I am starting to smell coolant when I am driving. Did the coolant flush with coolant filter and blue spring mod. Customers are lucky so many repairs were made under warranty that could have been denied. The truck is no longer under warranty. And for the price of 65,000 to 95,000 grand for a truck is just plain stupid! Fifth and final time, the repair shop said, injectors, high pressure oil pump, head bolts, head gaskets. I drive this truck every dayand pull heavy farm equipment with it.
I loved the no bail-out of ford. So please be a little kinder to our readers. Its 2013 and only has 60,000 miles on it. The only problem that popped up now is filling up with fuel it foams back and takes forever to fill up. They changed the oil twice and marked what they inspected.
Would not trade for another ford or buy one ever after this one. There has always been a problem when turning engine off to put gas in vehicle the engine would not restart, this was a diesel engine. Chenged three Starter and then learned that engine had been locked and will not turn. Still original engine and all components and transmission. The truck runs great but i have a new Chevrolet now. I am looking to unload this truck and buy a Chevrolet, or a Dodge.
People like to blame Ford for not being able to produce a low emissions diesel that runs on pot smoke, group love, and world peace. I have replaced 1 injector at 189,000 miles. Cummins no problems put it in a ford it would be all good. Ford will not take this vehicle in on trade in because they know it has no value. It has been the biggest piece of crap I have ever bought.
