Piece of junk!

Good luck to all you 6.0 owners. I am getting rid of the piece of junk! I should have drove this through the dealer front window a week after i bought it.

Rear main at 5000
Constant leaks and weird noises
Oil cooler and EGR blew up at 28000
Now wont start
Ford just seats back and laughs

This thing has about broke my bank and family.

good luck trying to sale or trade. The first thing they ask is if it has a 6.0. Then they laugh at you and offer hardly nothing. I took a huge loss getting rid of this truck, but it is better than constantly throwing money at a piece of junk.

If anyone reading this is thinking about buying a ford truck think long and hard.

dude come on, TONS of 6.0's out there and yeah, some have their problems but LOTS dont. Like said above, did you rag the truck? not do the maintence on it? what did you use it for?

Youre not a 18 year old kid who just romped on his truck all day showing out did you and trying to impress the HS crowd?

Anytime you want to compare pieces of junk let me know. I love my 6.0 and it will take a lot to get me out of it.

Not wanting to rag on ya there, partner.

I would like to know more about how this truck was such a lemon to you.
EGR at 28k, could have been under a warranty, would like to know what caused you to have to pay for that labor. My 6.0L has served me well, I neglected it, it crapped on me. I've learned what I need to do to take care of it now, and I'm not out a small fortune. Would you rather fix this truck, or lose more money low-selling it?

At this point just let the thread die. He probably has never owned a Ford or been on a Forum.
