Bye bye 6.4

So just 4 short weeks ago I bought a 2008 f250 job 2 with about 60k on it. She ran great up until Saturday. Driving to work she started running really bad, white smoke, and flashing CEL with a message saying stop now so I did and it died. Finally cleared codes with a solus and jumped the starter to get it to start and it was nasty. Smoking like crazy no power, CEL flashing, sounds horrible and bad misfire at idle, glow plug harness blew off valve cover and strong fuel smell in oil. P0284 and p0308, knew it was gonna be bad. Dealer called yesterday and verified it was the motor, and my heart sank seeing how I had no warranty, but then the service writer informed me the motor had a parts warranty because they guy before me hurt his motor bad and had to have number 8 piston replaced. So whether it gets a motor or just a piston its going to be free. But if I only get a piston the dealer has agreed to buy the truck back on basis of my fear of other motor concerns, whereas if I get a motor replaced I'll keep it and they buy me a full power train warranty. Definitely lucked out big time either way this goes. May possibly have a spartan and flo pro dpf/cat do back delete for sale though if I do sell the truck back, so stay tuned! Haha

My advice....its too early for you to deal with headache like that. Also sounds like Dealer knew the previous owner had some issues. I would HIGHLY recommended selling back and getting another truck....possibly from a different dealer. my $.02

not to smart jumping the starter, the truck shut the motor off because it detected a problem and to prevent further damage, not just to inconvenience you because it had nothing better to do

I just got a new motor from Ford under warranty at 53k. Still love the truck. What kind of truck are you going to replace your 6.4 with?

Buy a Cummins and enjoy driving again. These Ford (Fix Or Replace Daily) diesels should get everyone at Ford fired. I never had any trouble with my Dodge Ram 4wd w/5.9 Cummins nor has any of my friends. Ditto for most of those I know who own a Duramax. But, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE who owns a ford powerstroke has nothing but problems. In Texas, Dodge Rams command top dollar whereas fords can't even be given away. Ford has a great interior, exterior, etc., but under the hood it is pretty much a worthless pos unless you spend a ton of money to create a drivable NONford.

Sorry, but all anyone has to do is look at all the ford forums on the net and each is filled with troubles and heartaches and busted pocketbooks. The ford idiots in Detroit need to get off the bottle and the drugs and start working on building a diesel that holds up for more than a few thousand miles. I know guys with Cummins who have 400,000+++ miles and still going strong. On the Dodge Ram forums there are guys who have up to 1,000,000 miles with odometer photos. Many are known in person by other posters who can confirm the mileage. It is a real shame that so many ford owners have to go through so much crap. You'd have thought that after the dismal 6.0 the morons up in Detroit would have learned their lesson...after all they only have to look out their office window and see how bleak it is in Detroit. Duh, learn how to build a good product or get out of the business. Mr. Ford must be turning over in his grave because of his company's in-ability to build a decent diesel.

I agree. Loud doesn't mean big power neither does a thick black cloud of coal!
