Nearly every truck has had engine failure so you want to be proactive. Still cant figure out ford says nothing wrong. Within 180 miles of purchase, total boat anchor. I am looking to buy a 2006 Ford F350 Long bed. I might even stand out in front of the dealership with a sign warning people. We were told that currently 18 people are apart of the class action law suit.
I started laughing at the service tech, so your telling me because they are on the suspect list you want to replace them. Do we rebuild or get rid of it? Sadly Ford Royally screwed up with the 6. I asked F-in Ford what are we going to do different? I went to the ford dealer and asked the mechanic if it was a good motor. Diesel trucks are the standard because of how efficient the motors are plus their general reliability that gas engines cannot consistently match when using them in heavy duty situations. It was cheaper do that than buy another truck. However, it is difficult to prove any correlation between the engine's model year and the percentage of trucks experiencing technical difficulties.
I had a Chevy dually before the ford and it was a lemon and they bought it back. Refrigerant and oil capacity guides are based on data provided by sources such as AllData and Mitchell. Now I have 299 code that I had 3000 miles ago. Problems with the diesel engine are said to include damaged injectors, necessary turbocharger replacements, decreased resale value, and frequent breakdowns. The camshaft was done as well because of this.
It took about a gallon to refill, and I made a point to watch it. I make a payment every mo. If you treat it good it will be long lasting motor. Have you heard of a Fummins? The rear suspension has new spring rates and staggered rear shock geometry to improve ride quality. Lost 1 gallon in 20 miles.
Not bad in my book. I got the truck back and drove it about a week and it started doing the same thing. More than 80 percent of peak torque — nearly 300 pound-feet — is available starting as low as 1,000 rpm. Egr deletes tend to crack yur Y-pipe over time. Had the turbo replaced at 7,000 miles due to a bad oil return line. If you are interested in selling, please send your pictures, price and where you are located to Hope to hear from you soon!! I pick the truck up they said we only did the three injectors. And as far as others, I have friends with fleets of these.
F-350 Turbo Super crew cab, Dually, 6. If i had, we likely would never have purchased a 6. I had a 2003 f-350 super duty black 6. Bought it used in 09 with 100k on it. I purchased this truck based on my years of good experiences with Ford products. Ford told me it was junk! After he put enough in to make it, the truck stopped running. To be stuck with huge repair bills what should I do to prevent any of that common problems from happening.
Previous owner was an oil company I bought it from a friend who wholesales cars ahe traded it for my v6 mustang. I had to have it towed, then rent a car until it was fixed. Just some lessons hurt a lot more than others;o I find this sad and amusing. I will never buy another Ford. Refrigerant and oil capacity guides are based on data provided by sources such as AllData and Mitchell. Why wont ford help loyal truck owners with this debacle? Now Im getting sidetracked but surgeons think that they are God.
Had it 3 weeks and she quit on me. I would really like to be a part of the existing lawsuit. It gives audible and visual warnings if trailer wiring becomes disconnected. Alot of the issues is also due to lack of maintenance once again not fords issue. Values on this truck is very low — so we pay a large amount to repair it and also take a major hit trying to unload it. That is one expensive job.
I feel like a moron for selling the truck so cheap but was just so tired of dumping dollar after dollar into the truck. There are law suits in most states in America, so there is no question on if their are problems, just when they will strike. I will fix these issues once and for all. I follow all Preventative Maintenance schedules. The class action lawsuit only gives you a few hundred dollars. I use the dodge for deliveries. Had it fixed at ford now it leaks raw fuel out all the time.
I have to do the normal maintance. Worst news is my mechanic told me to get rid of it because all he sees is problems from trucks with the 6. The available Crew Cab Flex Fold rear bench seat, introduced in the 2004 model year, allows the user to fold down one or both seatbacks to create a flat shelf, or fold the seat bottoms up and fold out a flat steel load floor. F-in Ford tells me bring it back. Make me a offer on the truck. I learned the hard and expensive way, found good people to work on my trucks and help me to learn. We tow a 20 foot enclosed trailer for our construction business and 95% of the miles are with that trailer.
