6.7 engine down-no start

2nd time now in 66k she left me stranded. Luckily both times close to home. First time I got a little chime and stop vehicle safely light before it shut off and wouldn't fire up again for approx. 1 hr. The dealer said the EGT sensor was bad and replaced it. All good. Yesterday got the same scenario less the chimes at a stop light and had it towed to the dealer. I'm thinking the same problem,anyone else having these issues? Worst of it was a Chevy towed me out of the road,another Chevy gave me a ride home,and yet another towed it in to the dealer!! I was having some trans slippage issues from 1st to 2nd intermittently and was bringing it in anyway,but hadn't planned on this.

Angry 2012 less than 24k miles, EGT sensor problems

I have had my truck for less than one year. Have just over 24k miles, yes I drive the you know what out of it. At 13k miles just shut down, told me to "stop safely now" while I was sitting in parking lot. Towed to dealership...bad EGT sensor. Just the other day while sitting at an intersection got the same message and shut down. Towed to dealer and once again bad EGT sensor. Talked to a buddy today and he said he heard that once again Ford is having problems with this engine. Don't know what to do. Don't feel like I'm getting straight answers from dealer. Are there more people out there having issues?:

I had the same issue this last friday night. came out from dinner and it would not start. said "stop engine safely" went home called roadside assistance and had them meet me at the truck. It then started right up and was fine. then sat. morning i was on my way to work down the freeway and it shut off. i limped it off the road and now it sits at the stealership.
Im pissed. $60k for a new truck and I am driving my 62 econoline which is 50 years older with no a/c. It starts right the hell up. Its hot as the sun driving it in the summer but there are no computers to shut that ***** off.

The Egt sensors are under severe duty. I think the 6.7's have less reductant quality problems than the gm's, but more egt sensor failures.
It is an inexpensive and easy to change part.

The gm reductant nox sensors are in the 600 dollar range.

I am so wanting to buy a new f-250 as I am a dedicated Ford man. When I read these posts however....I begin to get cold feet and get scared to make the jump.....Geeeeesh I wish Ford could get it together......I will keep my 97 F250 for another year I guess......I haul a 16' trailer w/furniture and can't take a chance on laying down on a highway someplace....leaves me heartbroken :-(

Not to take away from the OP's post and problem, but keep in mind that many more people come to internet forums to post about and look for answers to problems with their trucks than to post about the good things with their trucks. If you look for people having problems with a new motor or new vehicle you will find it with every make and model on the road. At least where I live you see at least a 5 to 1 ratio of new Fords to new Chevys. There will always be failures with any manufactured part and some more often than others. If you do some more research you will see that the general consensus is that the 6.7 is the most reliable motor Ford has produced since the 7.3.

that and the fact the other two of the big 3 share components with ford.. people were complaining about the fact the turbo blows with the fords but honestly the GMCs/Chevys have the same exact turbo as the fords that were blowing their turbos and having the same issues.. sometimes its not the motor company but the outside manufacturers like garret or whatever weirdo Chinese company makes sensors in our trucks.. back to the OPs question.. are there any higher end aftermarket EGT sensors you can install? or can you disable them with some kind of tune?

Thumbs down

I just had the same thing happen to me today! I just left work and was about 10km from my work, The "STOP SAFELY NOW" flashed on my counsel and 10seconds later, I was coasting to a stop! On the Highway! Ford road side assistance told me 2hrs before a tow truck would arrive, after 1-1/2hr I decided to try the command start and it worked, I jumped in and drove home! Phoned ford and got the (Same Bull$#!+), They actually told me to disconnect the Batteries for 15min and try again! I said I did that earlier when the truck was on the side of the road! I'm DONE with Fords! They won't even look at it until next Friday! (8days) And yes I did phone all the other dealerships in a 150km radius!
