He said im truly embarresed and dissapointed with ford,the crap vehicles they shit out their asshole is terrible. If you even think you felt your truck not crank right… Replace both batteries… This is probably the highest electrical demanding diesel ever!! The entire cab had to be pulled off of the frame so they could work on it. The first thing you must do is junk the Ford tank, install a polymer one such as a Titan, clean everything, new filters, repair the downstream damage yeah I know…. I was on my way back from a job in Arkansas, and I started losing water. I follow all Preventative Maintenance schedules. Today while driving down the road it again blew out the radiator and is acting just like it did when it blew the head gaskets before. For the guy that fixes the 6.
Now the steering is acting up again Wife can barely turn the wheels its so hard to drive. The same is true with the 6 liter f series trucks. They service them just like they always have all their other trucks. We just had the oil changed a few weeks ago like suggested every 3-5000 miles, and now it just blew a lifter and is a complete loss. Bullet Proof Diesel water pump. Ryan, I would invest in a monitoring system Edge.
The issues related to the 6. This has occurred 7 separate times. Engine occasionally dies at stop lights. After a few minutes, it would eventually level off. I am am a firm believer that by 07 the Dallas plant put out some quality 6.
I am going to fix the oil cooler and also move or shield the electrical components from heat with heat wrap. Also, about every three fill ups or so I use either Kleen or Sea Foam treatment in the fuel. Mechanic told me to go ahead and start saving for injectors as they were next. We know that the 6. . It started not starting about 2 weeks after I bought it. I tried to drive it to a dealership I trust, but it died again, and this time the check engine light came on.
They are remain and if they tell you different theya are full of it. I drive this truck every dayand pull heavy farm equipment with it. I took off the turbo plastic intake, and it started again and I ran it for 20 mins. I have lost a lot of good customers that went out and bought the ford trucks with the 6. Poor oil quality can also clog the oil side of the cooler, and occasionally the oil cooler gaskets have been known to fail. The smoking and rough running is merely an inconvenience, but the hesitation is a huge safety concern. I am a 30 year ford mechanic who can tell you guys and gals that this is for sure the worse engine put in a vehicle in my years with the company.
After doing some learning about 6. Yes sir, and we will give you a 12 month 12,000 mile guarantee. I change oil at scheduled intervals. This truck has been a dream to own. I have a 2005 F-550 with 133,000 miles on it.
At this time the alternator was also replaced. I didnt do anything but change the oil and dump fuel in it for 7 years. No word yet on what they've found. Within a few days I noticed a miss and lack of power…. Now truck surges at low speeds, in parking lot and at stop light.
Ford Motor Company is making money in their suit and as long as they hold on to that money, it is compounded in interest. My wife is now too disabled. Ford should have stepped up to the plate over this. If you want, just give us a call and we can give you a few recommendations. He told me as long as no fluids were mixed, drive her on home and we would worry about the rest later. I stay in town for a couple days. It was coming from the top of the reservoir bottle.
