Another 6.7 Engine Failure

I have seen a few posts on 6.7 engine failures. I just took a call from the ford dealer working on my truck saying it was a catastrophic engine failure. I will post more once the engine is torn down and more is know.

As for the event itself. It happened while driving down the highway. Cruise was set at 70. Truck has never been tuned and has always been meticulously taken care of. 61,000 miles. Go figure it happened right after the bumper to bumper expired. It started with a downshift, vibrated and started knocking then lost all power and oil pressure.

We will see where it goes from here. I had all maintenance done by ford except for the last two oil changes which I did myself and made records for.

There is a cure: DMAX! I work with a 2005 GMC HD and an 08 Chevy HD that are routinely overloaded, towing over 30K lbs. Both have over 100k miles. Neither have ever broken down.

Well good thing the engine and power train is covered till 100,000 then huh? Emissions only go till 60,000. Mine blew a head bolt and cracked exhaust manifold and even though I'm deleted dealer still covered it at 70,000 . You shouldn't have an issue since your still in warranty

Your engine warranty is 100,000 miles, so you should be covered.

Update: I spoke with mechanic who said according to the tests run, it appears that a valve dropped in the #8 cylinder. Ford didn't want him tearing the engine apart to see the extent of damage. It wouldn't matter much anyhow. The new engine is ordered and will be put in this week. I have been happy with how this ford dealership has handled the service.

The mechanic was also going to check the turbo and dpf to make sure that neither needed replaced with the engine. I have not heard yet if either need it. The other good thing is that it will be a brand new engine and not a re-man. engine.
