I have been maintaining it to the standard set in my owners manual. All Motorcraft parts and have been having it serviced by the Ford dealership since new. It has been in for oil leaks (new bed plate and rear main seal). Turbo issues (one cleaning, one new) and now issues with FICM. Again covered by Ford, but I am begining to doubt this truck. I have the Diesel Care ESP with no deductable and rental (good at all Ford dealerships in US). Should I keep it and run with the warranty (good til 2013 or 250K) or do I dump it and buy something else. I really like the truck and it fits my needs well, I just don't like what I call the "nickel and time" issues. Don't know. I also had new head gaskets and headstuds installed when the cab was off for the oil leaks.
I think you already know what you want to do. I would keep it. A warranty till 250K. Thats like a sore pecker, you cant beat it.
It sounds like your having the issues most people have already had and once they went in they were done. The turbo could be from not getting fully used, depends on your driving style.
The rear main seal leak is common kinda sorta.
Honestly from what you saying it doesn't really seem all that bad. The biggest money breaker is probably injectors. Which it doesn't seem like your going to have with the maintenance schedule your following.
I have an 03. It has a very short oasis. Injectors and they threw a turbo at it at like 1000 miles for some reason and an ICP.
