Blown 6.7 at 22k miles!

Hello All

My Truck Specs
2011 F250 Lariat Crew Cab 6.7 Diesel All options
Pearl White two tone 20” Wheels

Blown engine at 22K Miles!

I was a GM guy prior to purchasing my first Ford F250 in 2008. It was a 6.4. Long-long story short after fighting with Ford for 16 months they finally agreed(kicking and screaming) to buy the truck back from me. I decided to give them another try and bought a 2011 F250 Lariat Loaded Crew Cab. I will have to say I have had no complaints with the truck up until 2 weeks ago! I tow a 33 Foot fifth wheel Camper(roughly 13K pounds). This was only the second time I towed this camper with this truck(the first time was only for a 20min ride) and I was on the way to Maine on vacation with the family. About 45 min into the trip I heard a strange Ticking/Hissing noise from the drives side of the engine and within 15 seconds the engine just shut completely down at 65mph. Truck has 22K babied miles! I had my entire family in the truck with limited steering and basically no brakes except for the emergency brake and trailer brakes! Very bad situation to say the very least. The dealership I deal with is pretty much the best dealer in Mass and they have a specialty diesel shop so needless to say my truck will get fixed and most likely be fine. They ordered a new long block and are installing it as we speak. Probably be without the truck for 3 weeks total – not to bad considering-I guess!

The reason I am posting is I own 3 trucks total with the 6.7 in them and I am trying to get Ford to at least warrantee them further than the standard 5y/100k miles on the engine. My other two trucks are Chassis cab’s and only get about 5-6K miles per year so I am afraid if these happen to be defective ones they very well might be out of warrantee before they blow or have very serious issues! I think I am being pretty reasonable considering its my second defective $62K truck in 2 years and I own 1-2011 F350 Chassis and 1-2012 F550 Chassis cab!

Knowing Ford from my last mess with the 08 6.4 I am planning on a fight. I would like to reach out and find out just how many of these are out there and maybe get some specifics on each one. Year, Miles Etc. This will certainly help my argument with Ford. I have found at least 20 threads regarding the same issue. So I have found at least 20 so far. This could be a great thread/info for anyone else having the same issue and would like to get satisfaction from FMC.

Thank you for reading this.

This might be a true story but why is it that whenever these stories come up the guy has one post lol go back to gm. I don't think it's bad luck it's lack out maintenance people think they can go 20k on an oil change cause it said so on the back of the bottle.

Maybe the OP is searching the net for some answers, the average duramax owner isn't well articulate enough to type a long post/thread like this..

Wow, that's the reply you give to somebody who didn't come in here bashing ford and is describing a problem he had with his truck? And then knowing nothing about the guy or his maintenance habits criticize him? Talk about being a total dik, it's good to have members like you on the board, it makes the ones who actually offer helpful advice look better.

To the OP, sorry to hear about your truck, glad they're getting it fixed up for you. Just so you know, there aren't too many members like srjd on this board. Hope you stick around. Post up some pictures of your 6.7s if you have 'em.
