Question 6.4 ?

Hopefully i will be getting my 2010 next week and i was having a few questions? how will i know what build number it is? What are some of the things i should watch out for on these trucks? What is the fuel economy? Is the motor better than the 6.0? Im just wanting to pick the brains of some of you guys that have one and find out as much info that i can. Thanks

you need to look at the vin number which will tell you where and when the truck and engine were built. I have an 08 that was manufactured late in 08 which was supposed to be after they fixed the bugs. I get average 10.6 mpg but about 16.5 highway flat and empty. the truck is great except for the fuel system. the 6.0 had issues as well but i think it was a better motor especially the last builds. Ford voided my warranty when I did not change my fuel filter every 12,000 miles and diesel fuel got into my engine. make sure you have only the dealer service your truck while under any kind of warranty and change the fuel filters every time you change your oil. you also must drain your filters of water every month or warranty void. but ford will not warranty any fuel related problem anyway. never tell the dealer you have ever towed with your truck, or driven in any manner which will put you in the severe service bracket. oh, and ford also goes by either engine hours or odomoter whicher shows greater mileage for warranty purposes.

I have the updated service interval......Fuel Filters at 10,000 and oil at 7500. I do oil at 5 to be safe. Also I save receipts, use only Motorcraft parts, and most importantly I created a profile on Fordvehicles.com under the owners section for my truck. Whenever my truck is seen at the dealer it automatically posts that service there. In addition, every service I do (all of the filters and such) I post in this profile aswell, it is saved for access by you or the dealer, or anyone you chose to let see it( like if you decided to sell). This, according to Ford Customer service, provids the proper documentation for any and all warrantied items related to the Fuel System and crankcase. They advise all to register on their site and track their service this way as it is Ford's service site.
