6.4 question

Looking at a 08 6.4 with 67K and an in service date of sept. 07. No warranty work has been done to the truck and it has had a couple of recalls performed in 09 and 11.. The question is should i go with this truck or look for a newer one? I had an 05' 6.0 that cost me a chunk of money and dont want to have to go through that again... thanks for the help

See if you can get an Oasis report on it, see what all has been done. Hopefully everything necessary has been taken care of.

That's a Job 2 truck. Definately get an Oasis report. Some dealers will do it @ no charge. Bought my 08 in May with 67k and like yours no warranty work and all recalls had been taken care of. Only problem I had was my fuel/water seperator was clogged with gunk and needed a good cleaning. I had them go ahead and replace the sensor while they were in there. I would want all filters replaced, fuel and oil. I added a 3/36k warranty on mine just in case. You never know.

Guys if you have any thoughts about buying the 08 with the 6.4 in it. DONT do it. The engine can not handle any amount of water at all and you will have to replace the whole fuel system on them which is about 10g's i just had it done it april with 108,000 miles on it. the turbo was replaced at 78,000 miles. I have had the oil cooler replaced the turbo y pipes. the radiator and now at 130,000 it has oil in the coolant resevoir which i am being told that its either the oil cooler again or its the front cover behind the water pump that has cavitated which i am being told happens to all of them. I feel like the 6.4 is a mirrored image of the 6.0. If you have the option to buy the 11 with the new FORD 6.7 engine then i would do that. I hope this helps because this is sad cuz I love my 08 just can't afford to be down all the time and pay the amount of money to have it fixed all the time.

Sounds like someone wasn't draining their water separator regularly. By the way, it can happen on any '08 and newer, not just the '08. Also, the 6.7's aren't exempt from this problem either. You get too much water in the system and the same thing can happen.
