6.0 and 6.4 problems

I have a 2006 f250 6.0 and a 2008 6.4 f350.

Both are in the shop with same problems. 06 egr cooler head gaskets oil cooler. All bad.

2008 egr cooler oil cooler

2006 82000 miles
2008 45000 miles

Does for and International not see the problems with these motors.
I run trucks stock no mods. I am really pissed at ford rite now.
May have to go to dodge or chevy. My 06 stays broke more than running.
I have complained about a small oil leak running down both sides of the engine and truck has been in shop 5 times still leaks oil.
06 started out with bad injuctors at 8000 miles. Turbo at 12000 and power stering pump. At 30000 more injectors and hpop. At 60000 egr cooler and egr valve. At 82000 another egr cooler head gaskets oil cooler and sensors.

Why does ford not fix problem and stop the patch jobs. I like ford products but thay need to find and fix the powerstroke issues.

dont expect dodge or chevy to solve your problems ive read over on the cummins forums guys are on thier 4th turbo around 20k miles, etc. the problem mainly imo is the emisions crap, deleting the egr ,cat,dpf and muffler may solve the headaches.

For the most part, the 6.4 motors are a LOT better than the 6.0's and I'm surprised you have issues.

The other stuff with the 6.0, I'm surprised your EGR stuff lasted that long. Get the ARP studs in and delete the EGR system (including cooler) and it should be a lot less problematic.

Good luck getting that oil leak fixed. Almost every 6.0 on the planet has the famous bellhousing drip.
