The egr failed on my 2008 F250 6.4 with 118,000 miles. It sucked in coolant into the cylinders. Number 8 cylinder bent a rod and the piston put a big scratch in the bore. It's shot. I'm looking at $10,0000.00 to put in a decent mileage junk yard motor. I'm just sick about this. I have put in 2 radiators, and had other coolant issues as well as electronic sensor failures that left me stranded more then once. I bleed ford blue and have purchased more then 10 New ford vehicles. I'm not sure how I feel about ford over this. My 6.0 diesel blew up but they covered that one under warranty. The only good diesel I had were the 7.3 engines. The only bad part on those trucks were the transmissions. Sorry for the rant. Ford should do the right thing and cover these junk motors.
just fyi, people on this site doesnt do well with new members with it being there first post to come on and bash a motor and say how big of junk it is when they are really not. the 6.0 and 6.4 are both great motors when maintained properly. coming on here whining about how terrible these motors are wont get you far with these guys, now coming on here asking for help and answers then you will be well on your way.
