Made it to Arkansas 13 hour drive and parked the truck for a couple days. I have a 2004 Ford F 350 Super Duty dually with 270. Some one who specializes in fixing them. Michael, you also need to be looking at the electrical system…. I need to know if anyone can tell me what I need to do to fix this truck. Then it got 10 mpg.
The bolts were not designed to hold this weight of an engine and hence, we have major issues. I know this guy, and he is a constant bs artist. I bought a new cap, to no avail. From price to sound to performance, gas and diesel trucks differ greatly. She now has 118,900 miles and I love her to death. I thought this truck would last me for 20 years, what a disappointment.
I have a replacement 2005 6. Never had an engine problem, always changed my filters and fluids. If there is a lawsuit in Canada I want to know about it. Stock is not good enough. It has been the biggest piece of crap I have ever bought.
Looking like I will take them to court!!! I got the truck back and it performed very well this time but I kept smelling diesel fuel coming inside my cab. Hi, where do I troubleshoot from here? It never left me on the road. I hope this truck will last??? I bet I have put at lease 50 fuel filters on theis truck at 50-55 per set. Sadly Ford Royally screwed up with the 6. I have a line on the best remans in the country try. But daily drivers and normal hauling are nothing outside of normal for these vehicles so long as a person takes care of the maintenance and is knowledgeable about how to use these vehicles and drive them properly.
I had a Chevy dually before the ford and it was a lemon and they bought it back. I would appreciate having his contact information. But on here I see many claiming around 15 miles to the gallon for the Cummin's. I believe I could have got 12 to 12. I sent Ford, and the Federal Trade Commission, all the information with scans of my bills and receipts.
I live in missouri, can someone please help? I cant afford another vehicle now. An Amarillo Package for Lariat Crew Cab models features Blazing Yellow paint, 18-inch forged aluminum wheels, black leather seating surfaces and other extras. Looking for recommendations and input…please. Put 30k on it with no probs, then put studs, gaskets, egr delete, bluespring, and a performance tune on it. Ford told me it was junk! What, if anything is salvageable. Now has 96k on it. I Wow, I get so tired of hearing everyone whine and cry about their 6 liter, and oh how they got taken advantage of and got duped and wasted soooooo much money.
I have had Cummins in 18 wheeler before had all kinds of true out of egr valves oil coolant system the real tribles is our government with there hands in the automotive industry. This is because diesel is a better value at higher mileage than gas. Now I have 299 code that I had 3000 miles ago. Still cant figure out ford says nothing wrong. No real other options other than driving off a cliff and collecting a bit of insurance money.
Do I dump it now or see if the new repairs hold up? My mechanic suggested the egr delete and new oil cooler and it sounds like I should do that. I have a nice truck without a motor for sale if anyone is interested. I drive this truck every dayand pull heavy farm equipment with it. For the guy that fixes the 6. Is anyone in Louisiana having luck filing lawsuits on Ford? A buddy of mine has a 08' Chevy diesel and pulls a big 5ver. I fell about 55 feet.
First it was the turbo that seemed to go out, was told I needed a new one of those but it really seemed to have a mind of its own because while driving, it would once in awhile kick in. Good luck and do take extra good care of that truck. If there is a lawsuit in Canada I want to know about it. Please let me know whom to contact!!! Manufactured by Navistar, these defective engines were used in Ford trucks from 2003 to 2007. When I hooked up to my Keystone 32' fifth wheel weighing about 7700 lbs empty, I would get between 11 and 12. So I kept the truck I had.
