Thumbs down Who's has recurring 6.0 Diesel "Hard Start" Injector failure & HP Oil Leaks

I am so angry and frustrated that since I purchased my 2006 F350 6.0 Turbo Diesel in 7/05 this truck has been in the shop more than it has been on the road in proper operating condition! Continuous recurring high pressure oil leaks, bad injectors which untimately burns out alernators killing the batteries, loss of power, shutting down altogether....on the highway while hauling a 40 ft horse trailer full of horses...for years now and all Ford is telling me is that they can give me $500 off a new Ford Truck thru the X-Plan to get me out of this truck with the bad diesel engine design.....

What's up with that? Anybody out there have any advice on how I can get the engine/truck replaced with one that remains in proper operating condition for more than 1 week???? We have to keep borrowing a friends truck to haul our horses to the shows because this one is constantly in the shop for weeks on end!

I cannot believe that Ford is not doing what is right and replacing this engine/truck or compensating me for my being stuck with a bad product.... I only owe under $11,000 on this truck and you know they won't give me anywhere near what I need to purchase a new vehicle without owing an arm and a leg in this economy. This is just wrong.

Does anyone have any constructive advice on what my next step should be?

Thanks.

Repeted injector failure is most likly due to extended service intervals, or improper fuel pressure. If you are changing oil and fuel filters every 5-7k miles. Then you need to look at fuel pressure. If you are not doing the work yourself . I would definetly go to a alternate ford dealership. 6.0's are a little finiky but basically easy to diagnose. Your shop might not have the proper personell looking at your vehicle. Make sure your FICM has the latest updates. I have not seen bad injectors kill batteries. I have seen low voltage batteries overwork the FICM and shorten it's life. Be careful of jumping other trucks off with yours. A dead short can create havoc on your electrical system and start a whole host of problems you dont want. 2006 6.0 in one of the best 6.0's out there. I would start over at a qualified Ford diesel tech that has lots of experience.

Definitely look into another dealer. It sounds like the place you're going is repairing the symptoms and not the root cause.

The high pressure oil leak is most likely dummy plugs on the rails and a snap together fitting on the pump. If its under warranty you should be good to go. pm me I work for ford
