6.4 self destructs on the way home

Hi all,

I took possession of a "new" 2008 F250 with the 6.4L after owing a 7.3 for 11 years. On the way home the engine started shaking all over the place and by the time I got to my garage it was making a clanking sound like a 90's Cummins. Had it towed back to a dealer who eventually determined that 3 cylinders were DOA. Apparently stuck valves led to a broken rocker arm and two bent push rods. I'm awaiting Fords official word today but it is looking like Ford wants to fix it and give me back a rebuilt engine in my brand new truck. I am screaming that I payed for a new truck - not a rebuilt engine but I am beginning to get feedback from others that I am pretty much stuck with this unless it goes down again. Any thoughts from anyone who has seen this before?

Like someone else said, I'd look at what kind of legal responsibilities Ford has to get you back into a comparable truck. I would not settle for a rebuilt, whether it's comparable to a brand new motor or not. You paid for a new truck and that truck should have a new motor.
If they deny it, get the local news station involved. We have a news station down here that has the "Trouble Shooters". It's actually pretty funny to see them in action. They confront people/businesses on camera to try to find out why someone did what they did.
Ford may already be doing what they're required to do. How many miles are on it?

Dont settle for a rebuilt engine. Get people like the press and J D Power in on it and they will give you a new engine.

On the way home from the dealership?
If thats the case I would hand them the keys and tell them they can have it back.
Then I would watch them squirm.

i would look into lemon law as well. its a shame that i get reading about all these problems. my dads friends 05 was lemon lawed when he first got it. they gave him all his money back and he was happy at the end. he owned the truck for almost a year and drove it for about 2 months total. he put something like 3k miles on it. it was ALWAYS at the dealer for something. mainly suspension but your problem would seem to be more intense then a steering box and whatnot
