Do they all have issues?

Just wondering, as I said in an earlier post I am not new to diesels but am somewhat new to the 6.0 . And being on here and reading everything makes me wonder if this is just small percentage of people who have all these massive issues or should I just be waiting for mine to start giving me problems at any minute. I bought my 07 350 in April with 24k on it , I drive alot and now have 42k. The only thing Ive done to the truck is switch to amsoil 5w 40. I bought the truck from a dealership I have delt with for years and trust. All other fluids had been done and service completed. Have had no issues as of yet, other than getting a edge insight , what do I need to watch for ? Thanks in advance for any advice!

It has tires so the answer is YES. Some might be worse then others but they will all have some issues some time.

As Dave said the 07 had the least amount of warranty repairs. As long as you have a scan gauge that will show the engine oil temp and the engine coolant temp (those should be no more than 15 degrees apart max) and change the engine coolant to the ELC Cat approved instead of the awful Ford gold coolant you should be fine. Instead of doing a flush I would drain and fill with distilled water at least 2 or 3 times until you get all of the old gold coolant out then fill with the ELC coolant, this helps keep the oil cooler from getting plugged during a routine flush. As always though this is just my .02 cents.

Yea, since it's low miles, I'd definitely get that gold coolant out...which will prevent lots of the other major problems down the road.

Oh one more bigge is get a coolant filter... they are easy to install. Add it if and when you do the flush that way you don't have to add any more coolant than you have to.
