12yr Ford guy, Chevy next time!!!
I have had a 2006 6.0 with no problems until over 150,000 miles which is expected. I bought a 2008 6.4 and replaced 4 radiators every 15-20k miles (3-4 months I turn about 50k miles a year). The first one was under warranty 100%, the second one Ford paid half, the next 2 I paid out of pocket $1,800 each. When I noticed a leak again I traded it for a 2012 6.7. The service manager swore that the new engine was Ford made and much better and I would not have issues like I did with the POS 2008 6.4 because they changed to a different radiator. Well, I just clicked 80K miles after almost 2 years and the radiator is leaking in the same spot. Ford said they will pay $600 but I think it is BS. Come to find out it is the same radiator as the 6.4's
I really, really, really hate saying it but this will be my last Ford product I every buy. Next truck will be a Chevy. Looks like ill be driving this POS for another 3-4 months and trading it in for a 2500. God I hate saying that but none of my Chevy buddies have had any major problems like this. It has been aggravating to say the least.
