High Pressure Fuel Pump Failure
I have been driving versions of the F-350 for 25 years with mostly good results. DO NOT BUY THE F-350 WITH THE 6.7 ENGINE!!! There is a very good chance that the high pressure fuel pump will fail with catastrophic results. More importantly, if this happens, FORD WILL NOT HONOR THE WARRANTY!!!
Ford will either blame contaminated fuel or improper maintenance(not changing fuel filters every 12000 miles, for instance). One of our 2012 trucks(55000 miles) stalled on the side of the road for no apparent reason. Two weeks later, after blaming contaminated fuel(wasn't), then "improper maintenance", Ford wants $10000 to replace entire fuel system, plus injectors. I know from the blogospere that this is a systemic engineering problem with this engine. Please respond if you have had similar problems. FORD IS NOT STANDING BEHIND A FAULTY PRODUCT.
