@ a2elvis, you may have been on to something, EGR was stopped up so they replaced with new, but tech found on HotLine, that this has some other occurences. Apparently these engines have a Bypass Plug that blows out allowing oil to bypass the oil cooler. They dropped the pan and sure nuff,,,, it was hanging by retainer. No explanation as to what causes them to blow, he is researching deeper for me and I will pass on to forum. Sad part is the plug cannot simply be replaced, it is built into upper portion of oil case assembly, requiring raising or removing engine.

Holy crap that seems like a bad idea.... I mean the plug in the pan thing.

Sounds an awful lot like having to pull the whole damn top of the engine apart to replace the oil cooler on a 6.0L...

Sorry to hear of the trouble and I truly hope this is not a sign of things to come?...

I may be patient, but definitely not rich, this is taking a toll. This truck is my livelihood.

I called this morning to make sure they are changing the Oil Cooler as well, but Ford is labeling this as a Design Flaw in the Bypass Plug. the new assembly is different and they see no need to change Cooler. Mine is an early production 6.7,.

Copy that... Design flaw.. no way!!! That cant happen...

I love my Super Duty and would never get rid of it, but its little things like this that drive me crazy!

Hope all works out, let me know when and if they get it fixed up.

Got the truck back and made a trip with no issues. They did end up changing Oil Cooler as well, seems the upgraded piece has a different connection to the cooler.
I loaded today with about 18K, and had no problems, the highest I saw oil temp was 231 on a long hill.
Glad to be back on the road.

yeah the oil cooler is a new design as is the upper pan. I have heard of this plug falling out, i've been on the lookout for them as it's a new issue that's appeared

I have had the truck back for a week now, and seems to be doing well now. Actually has more power than before it went down.
I don't believe the power increase is related to the plug, probably the replacement of the CAC, and EGR, as they were full of crud. Still nothing to get excited about with the detuned setup, but I can tolerate it now.
On a side note, I opened a case with Customer Relations, due to the fact of the truck being down for a month, and being my way of living...I'm not impressed at all with Ford's programs.

Update on Turbo situation. After hitting 100K I deleted and tuned and was able to make it to 261K without any more problems,,,,, till now.
Performance was much better after tuning, (tuned in H&S Tow program) and I believe this helped prevent problems. My oil is clean when changed at 6K.
I am now researching as to if there is an aftermarket Turbo for these Cab/Chassis.
For those interested, I stay loaded usually grossing 30K and fuel went from 6.3 mpg to 8.8 mpg after deleting DPF.
