6.0 diesel multitude of problems

2004 Lariet CC dually

vibration in engine at 1500 and 2100 rpms, ford calls it a drone in the engine, engineers sent three different brackets to go between the turbo and manifold,
no fix, engine looses rpm and starts smoking and finally picks back, had new egr valve and wiring modification, no help, never know when it is going to do it, gets 9 miles to gallon, ford can't fix, not covered under lemon law because it is over ten thousand pounds so you buy it, you are stuff with it, any suggestions other than a stick of dynamite.

Thanks, Ed

Man Ed, sure sounds like you got a serious lemon. Have you talked to them about a buy back?

Angry I have a 2004 also..

My 04 is stock @ 3000mile it blew up the top end and we were babing this thing. Ford kept it for almost 4 week. Wouldn't do anything,but fix-it. It gets about 9-12 mpg. If i'm towing 2 quads on trailier about 1500-2000 lbs. go thru Colorado I was getting as low as 6 mpg. Runs bads since new. Reprogrammed it about 7-8 times still runs like CRAP. It dies while drive down steel hills, Cruise control shuts off while goning down the road for no reason. The dealer ship told me that they cured all 6.0 problems before I bought it.

Cool Lemon

Check the law's in your state. In my state after 3 attemps you get a new rig. I did it in 96 and got a new 97!!! Fords not hurt'n and for your outlay of cash, you shouldn't be.

Try a differant dealership/mechanic. I have been in the service business for better than 30 years (computers) Some techs are simply not that good at diagnosing and troubleshooting. If i were to guess as to the fault,the turbo is not varying output correctly.
A worthwhile article.

Sorry to but that is a cool website actually. Check out the photographs. They show common wiring, engine, turbo and other issues. Pretty slick.
