6.4 living up to its reputation

Sitting at a stop light with my 1, 3, and 5 year old kids in the truck with me. One of the busier intersections in Omaha. The truck idled kind of funny then flashed a "pull over safely" or something to that effect on the info screen. Before I could react the truck died and would not turn over at all. After sitting there for 15 minutes on hold with Ford with cars honking and kids crying, road side service said they would have someone there in 30 minutes. 1 hour later a flat bed arrives and they truck actually started back up by then, but the engine light was on. I am pissed, first time I have been stranded for nearly 15 years. My truck only has 30K on it and I'll be sure to get the extended warranty now. Any of you guys have this happen? It didn't run that much different before it died.

Heard of that happening and I've heard that there is a reflash to address it. Not sure and I'm sure some 6.4 guys will chime in. Glad everything turned out ok though

Thank you for the kind words dhanna. The only anomaly it had was the fact that it would tell me to drain the water separator every 10 minutes. I went and had the filters changed and within 10 minutes it told me to drain the separator. I'll bet I have 20 parking lots with tiny spots of diesel on them from me pulling over to drain that thing. Never once had any water either.

I hope your truck quits for all the hating you've been doing on 08s.

I have an 08 and never had that. I wonder if he's got the old filter and picked up some bad fuel and it got past the filter into the second one.
