I not happy with Ford motor co. That was in 2009 best advice I took. They need to recall the motor completely! We paid for the truck to be fixed and my hubby limped it to a local Ford dealership because we contacted Ford about the issue. Among other things ford u should stand by ur product. If you own a 6.
That resolved the issues for a lot of customers. If it has not gone on you it will. I thought this truck would last me for 20 years, what a disappointment. Then told the horn must have been bad; no invoice for faulty horn. They would come into my shop for repairs, we would do the repairs and the truck would be back in a month or less with a totally different problem. They are putting updated oem ford parts in it. We use this truck for our business.
The truck began having problems under 50,000 miles. Yet another Victim of Ford best kept secret of knowingly using faulty engines and than ignoring the problem and making their customers suffer the consequences. The high pressure oil pumps are only sold as a re-built unit… Same was with the ficm that also when out on me. 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. Thanks in advance for any help. I found a lot of help from Powerstrokehelp. I have had many 6.
What in the hell makes them think I will ever buy another one of their vehicles ever again. Catastrophic failure of injector which melted piston. Says if you stay off the throttle you will be fine. Send us a comment if our procedures are correctly. Sadly Ford Royally screwed up with the 6.
Is your attorney looking for more work? I heard in 2003 that people were having trouble with their 6. From transmissions , front ends ect. This part is a square plastic fitting held on with 4 screws with a plastic lever coming out of the top for draining the water separator. I purchased this truck based on my years of good experiences with Ford products. Is there something I should look out for if these problems do arise? I would love to get some kind of satisfaction from ford. Batteries replaced 18 mo ago along with radiator. I drive this truck every dayand pull heavy farm equipment with it.
Only problem I have with the truck? Ford needs to stand behind this engine!! Just plain sick and tired of being bleed to death!. Looks like pitting in the mold lines. So I can make money to live…. I kept my 2001 7. Thanks Will Witt I had a 2006 f-250 powerstroke all repairs done by City Ford Edmonton Alberta Canada. I bought my 03 super duty f350 6.
The air filters are better than any after markets, the turbos are amazing. I am going to fix the oil cooler and also move or shield the electrical components from heat with heat wrap. The last failure cost me push rod parked in high weeds forget about that money pit. That is not a must but could save a break down or long starts in the future. Purchased a new cap, as I naively thought maybe this one was bad. On top of all that is the inconvenience factor.
I loved the no bail-out of ford. I ordered it new so I have 1 of the very early models in December of 2012. Changed that and the oil cooler then decided to pay attention to the maintenance and stop neglecting it. I need to sell it asap. I started it and it ran with no noise but white smoke was noticed and wet exhaust.
