Worst luck ever...

Guys,

I have had the worst luck in the last 8 months with my 06 F-350 4x4 w/130k miles... This past fall i had to have oil cooler, egr valve replace. That was about 3400 bucks. January i had to have the tensioner pulley and serpentine belt replaced because it broke off on the hwy. Feb i had to have one of the alternators replaced.....and NOW i just had to have work done on my truck because there was a leak in the high pressure oil system. which was another 2135.00.

seriously WTF!!?!?! folks someone needs to talk me out of it but seriously thinking about going to a Dmax...

Maybe either buy an extended warranty if that's still possibly or buy a good set of tools and get handy doing your own repairs if you really want to cut costs. Those repairs you've had done are easily DIY and could have saved you thousands.

I had my hpop go out on me when I was driving home from school. I have an extended warranty so I had to pay the tow truck, and a hundred bucks, everything else was covered. I agree with Banshee365, if you can get an extended warranty...

I'm not gonna lie to you. I bleed Ford blue but..........I have 4 diesel 1 ton trucks right now. A 4x4 one ton that is going to be used for a parts truck to convert another 1 ton into a 4x4 dually. The 4x2 dually. Another 4x4 one ton single wheel that is going to be for sale when I get all this swapping around done, and a 04 4x4 F550 that is my work truck. I own my own business and I'm concerned about my presentation as I pull up on a jobsite as I do not want to look as a shade tree mechanic that just threw together a truck. So with that said I have been fixing and keeping the 6.0 in the line up but I have thought MANY times of getting rid of it and putting the older dually back as my work truck. Although I can do my own work on these trucks I DO NOT enjoy it. Some people enjoy playing and working on their trucks. One person that comes to mind is Marty. He seems to parts just for fun. LOL JJ

can you elaborate as to what you have for an extended warranty?
