anybody had this happen?
One of my work trucks is a 2011 F450 C&C. Driver came in yesterday morning and said CEL on, smoking from under the hood, and strange noise coming from the engine. Opened the hood soot built up all over the bottom of the hood & melted the hoses for the windshield washer. The flex coupler for the EGR was blown. Dealer says "never seen that before". Seems like a fire big hazzard to me. Any thoughts on possible cause. Truck only has 12k miles.
Also, this truck seems really low on power. I know it a C&C and only has a
300hp rated engine with a 6.0L type turbo. With a 40mph head wind running empty the truck would only run 75mph with foot on the floor. I have complained to dealer to no avail.
