2006 Ford F250, 6.0

Just got me a 2006 Ford F250, 4X4, Diesel, 6.0 liter engine. It is the Harley Davidson edition. Beautiful truck, but I drove it for 2 days and had to take it back to dealership because of head gasket leaks. I wonder if anyone has experienced this with this trucks and if it will be worth buying extra warranty?

buy it !!!!!!!!

[BUy the warranty. It is so worth the money. Your powertrain waranty will cover the head gaskets. I suggest finding a dealership that is mod friendly and have either ARP or H11 head studs installed. If you do not then you will most deffinatley down the road be doing this work all over again...and again.....and again........and etc.................

Talk to the dealer and see if they will put ARP studs in. You will have to pay for the studs at about 400 bucks. But with those you should never have to worry about head gasket problems again

I have the exact same truck buddy, and I just had my truck into the shop for 7500$ worth of work! Its definitely NOT worth buying extra warranty if you're planning on putting any aftermarket parts into your engine, because Ford won't even consider covering anything under warranty right now with the economy the way it is, and especially because they can always tell whether or not your truck's had performance parts installed...

2006 F250, 6.0,

Thanks for your imput.

I priced the extended warranties from Ford and they go for $1525 4year/48000 miles or their premiun care for $2340 4 yrs/48000 miles.

This warranties are just like insurances, you will buy them just in case. With my 2006 F250, 4X4, Diesel, Harley Davidson, anything that breaks will be pretty expensive.

I asked the dealership to install studs and they said that it they do, it will void the warranty. I'm stuck at least until warranty runs out.

You can buy a used car with that kind of $. Out of pocket or still under warranty? Overall, are you happy with your truck. I love my truck but I been hearing that the 6.0 has lots of problems.

Well big power comes at a big price. I did the studs even though the head gasket was still fine, because I don't want coolant in my oil! My truck has way more power than it needs to, so a tranny will be the next big purchase, but yes, I absolutely love my truck and the 6 litre engine, even with its common problems. What people seem to forget is how good this engine is in stock form. Unfortunately they weren't designed to handle massive quantities of aftermarket power...
