Angry 2011 F-250 6.7 BLOWN ENGINE $24,233.67

Bought this 2011 4-door loaded Lariat with a 6.7 Diesel engine that was highly touted as the best diesel truck ever.

I service the truck religiously and baby it. Never been in the mud, never abused. Driving to an appointment yesterday and the truck started knocking then violently shaking from the engine. I pulled over immediately and turned her off. Looked under the front of truck and 13 quarts right there on the ground.

Had the truck towed to dealer and today find out the 1st and 5th cylinder are showing nothing. They removed the oil pan and crankshaft is jumping around freely. The long block is shot. The short block is shot and apparently the turbo and all. The sympathetic diesel mechanic felt terrible telling me that the entire engine and components need to be replaced.

The damage: $24,233.67........ Although he can tell I immediately shut the truck down due to no evidence of blowback in the exhaust, he said it was a possibility that I could be required to pay another $3,000-$4,000 if the exhaust showed damage after engine replacement.

I have no idea what to do. This truck cost $60,000++ and is only 3 years old with 124,058 easy miles on it. I owe money on it still so I am at a loss.

Any suggestions? Should ford cover this basically totaled truck? I'm in the midst of the dilemma and need advice or help from someone not emotionally tacked with a $24,000 estimate.

My plan is to cover every site on the internet with this info and contact ford to see if they will stand behind the product. This truck has cost me thousands with the exhaust sensors going out time and time again while leaving me stranded on the side of the road. I will not rest until everyone is informed of this and Ford stands up to their mechanical workmanship failing. Any attorney interested, please contact me.

Junk yard motor for around $5000 will probably be your best bet.

Ironically there was a recent thread on hear of why people hate the new 6.7's and are scared of them. And unfortunately your situation is why I will never own one.

Gonna subscribe to this thread to see how it turns out for you.

Have a failure analysis performed on the engine by an independent mechanic. Use the Ford Dealership ONLY if you feel as though you can trust them. Document everything. The root cause of the failure CAN be determined by a good analyst.
I would speculate that the engine suffered an exhaust valve failure that is all too common with the 11 model and early 12 model engines or it suffered a broken crankshaft that while not as common as the valve failures it does happen.

Poormanscat, thank you for the info. What would the possible outcomes or accomplishments be to make it worth spending $1600-$2000 on failure analysis? I will do it in a heart beat if it would accomplish some sort of resolution. I'm still in shock and new to a repair bill this steep so I apologize if I'm missing something obvious.

I agree. What's really the point of spending $ on failure analysis if Ford is not going to do anything about it? Maybe some type of recalls???

I'm not sure the build date. How could I find out? I bought it as it arrived on lot in December of 2010. Guessing it was an early 6.7 build?
