6.4l recalls

There are a few open recalls on the 6.4L engine one in which will aid in the "Radiator issue" that everone has experienced. This installs a venturi Tee into the cooling system.

the second is a pcm reprogram that will help with shift quality - regen notification on instrument cluster - and slight drivability issues.

If you are not sure if these recalls effect your vehicle feel free to contact me and I can run your VIN number to check for recalls. I can also assist in scheduling your truck for the recalls to be perofrmed.

Approx 70% of the trucks I have seen for recalls have had leaking radiators. Protect your engine - it runs hot, it breaks.

since the pcm reprogram my truck is "cleaning the exhaust filter" every 300 miles, dealership is telling me this is now normal and I should get used to it. I drive highway miles, no stop and go, seems excessive to me (and fuel economy has dropped almost 3 mpg).

300 highway miles sounds about right for regeneration cycles.

All my touring photos. (except the two massive trips in 2011-soon to be posted eventually)

Has anyone had a ticking/crackling noise from the lower part of the engine? Sounds like exhaust is cooling done after the engine is off, but i hear the noise while the engine is running and more when i rev it up.

anyone else have these issues

My truck is an 08 f250 Lar. 6.4 lit engine 1500 miles

thanks

Just an update, in looking for an aftermarket radiator for my 08 6.4L since 3 radiators in 61,000 miles is unacceptable in my book and only one of them warrantied by Ford, I contacted a radiator shop who informed me that Ford is in the process of generating a recall on the radiators. Save or dig out your reciepts and hang on for your reimbursment.
Hope this helps.
