Blown 6.4 at 59000 miles

Heard a small ticking this afternoon that was not present this morning and 17 miles later, boom. Acccelerating from a stop just at the shift point the engine let go, large puff of brown smoke and then the dreaded thumping indicating a broken rod..... ahhhh shi&%$#@. Call my buddy to come get the trailer, call the towtruck to take the truck to the dealer.......

Any sage advice on what I should do now..... or maybe not do?? I'm out of business until this is fixed. Heard rumors of blown 6.4s being fairly common. Any truth to that??

Mike


P.S. Job 1 truck delivered June 2007. No check engine light, no wrench...... nuttin

Did you put extra zeros on your miles. If not man I say you got your monies worth out of that engine.590,000 miles on your engine in 2 years you been doing some driving. How many sets of tires is that.

I'm sure at 590000 miles all powerstrokes may let go.


Now is it common for 6.4's to be broken down? Not really.

Well at 59,000 miles have them replace it under warranty.

If you have a warranty then I would call up dealers around you and see which one can repair it first. I haven't heard of 6.4's breaking rods but I've seen 2 with bent rods.

I would bet a good amount of money this failure is oil related, fuel accumulation in the oil and spun a rod bearing, JMO......
