King Ranch 6.4 or new 2011 F150 XL?
I have a 2010 F350 King Ranch. It is really tricked out and sports the 6.4 PSD. I like it fine. It's a dually, and rides great. But I have a few issues. Apparently the former owner of this truck did "something" such that when I brought the truck to the dealer for the "mandatory" computer reflash..the service tech told me that they would have to download the current programming before they could upload the new data. He said he didn't know why it would not take the new flash..and that "something" was up. This at the dealer that I bought the truck from. I have done NOTHING to this vehicle, but I get the impression that they think I did...I brought it in as directed, and the service writer says for now to use an additive to keep water out of the fuel as this is basically what the reflash will safeguard against. To do the reflash it will take at least a day and a half.
That said..I have the "opportunity" to trade this truck in, on a new 2011 f-150 XL crew cab with 4WD..but that's it..no options..nothing else. Reduces my payment somewhat, but I'm getting a far less optioned truck..and will start my payments at 0 months again. I have paid for the King Ranch for over a year now. And it is a nicely appointed truck.
The question is...IS the 6.4 considered a bad engine? More trouble than others? What say you?
Thanks for the feedback.
