The contact stated that while driving approximately 60 mph, the engine overheated. Just bought a 2004 ford F350 Lariat 4×4 with the 6. Hi, where do I troubleshoot from here? Would love to sue the shit out of Ford. I have a nice truck without a motor for sale if anyone is interested. Ran for a little while…then…yup, you guessed it! Most recently, the low pressure oil pump would not prime, and after pulling it, I found a needle bearing from a roller lifter had passed through it.
He is like diesel genius in the area and very well known. Thank You, Phillip Cobb I own a 2004 F350 6. Please let me know whom to contact!!! I am not sure about my 2007 350 super duty truck had oil cooler egr valve done to it seem to run good but after reading all the tube people are having I wish now I never got the truck. I test drove it and it ran fine. Consumer states problem with a leak of rear main seal the consumer stated he had to take the vehicle to the dealer several times to have the rear main seal replaced.
They are flawed, but that can be overcome. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. Josh, I am very happy that you are having good luck with your truck. It was at the dealership for 25 days for an engine replacement. I almost got sued because one truck kept breaking down and the customer got a lawyer. The vehicle was not repaired at the time of the complaint. I cant hurt my Ford with all I ask of it it has been the best truck I have ever had.
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. The second time still under warranty injectors and injector tubes this time to the tune of 5200. The dealer replaced the fuel tank, fuel filters and several fuel injectors December 2007. Pulled the maintenance report from Ford, had typical repairs of the 6. They were that backed up. The upgraded Oil cooler is what you want to replace with.
They service them just like they always have all their other trucks. I have heard good things about the 6. Consumers are enraged over the poor quality of the diesel engine in Super Duty Trucks and Excursions. It did not look like there was a problem, but the water was just disappearing. It looks even worse when I see the trade-in values others on this site have been quoted. Pretty stupid and not checked enough before approving to put into service. I heard in 2003 that people were having trouble with their 6.
My husband ordered the truck at 42,000. The judge will be considering final approval in a couple months. I think just the fact that Ford recognized the issues with this engine and quite installing them in their trucks is enough for Ford to be responsible for the repairs or replacement of this engine. I have to do the normal maintance. I got the truck back and drove it about a week and it started doing the same thing. If it has not gone on you it will. I am one pissed off Army Vet.
I have less than 6k in my 06 it had 180000 on it when I got, it now has 300000, it is a good truck. I can not through money at this 6. Purchased a new cap, as I naively thought maybe this one was bad. They are the absolute worst!!! I use my sct live wire tuner for gauges. A blown Turbo, engine, and no truck. I believe this issue needs to be addressed as a recall because according to my research all of the 6.
The contact managed to coast to an emergency lane. I have to tow this truck back to Arkansas and may have to replace the engine. I call it not right. Thank you for speaking the truth. Some of these may not have been needed but I wanted to start with what I know is good and go from there so I replaced them anyway.
