Alright Fellow Ford Owners I need some input. I am going to look at a 2010 F 250 6.4 tomorrow that has almost 31,000. What issues is this model having? Anything like the 6.0 (god I hope not). We currently have the dreaded 6.0, just got it out of the shop with blown gaskets and assortment of other issues.

What can you tell me to prepare me for looking at the 6.4? We haul a 3 horse slant, gooseneck with full living quarters and I would drive it back and forth for work.

So is this our salvation?? Or do I keep looking? All input I thank in advance!

what ive seen is a lot of radiators in the pickup side, high side turbos sticking,thermostats, and high pressure fuel pumps leaking into the oil. on the fleet side of it with 450 and 550's, same problems as the pick ups, but also ive seen a lot of short blocks being replace due to melting pistons and lifters going bad or injectors over fueling. but i dont see nearly as the same "repeat trucks" as a 6.0.
