Question 6.4 Problems? Things to watch out for?

Got a friend who's thinking about getting rid of the ol' 7.3 for a 6.4. I know the 6.0 problems, but is there things to watch out for in the 6.4? Help me out here haha

These newer engines don't like water in the fuel system so you have to drain the water separator religiously. They also don't like the higher % bio fuels that some stations use, so know what fuel the station provides. Monitor the fluid levels more frequently, specially if you have the DPF. Stay on top of your routine maintenance schedules.

These newer engines require more attention then the older 7.3's so he will probably have to change his mind set a little regarding the above.

No, that thread is over blown. Sure, there are problems, but every vehicle has problems in some form or another.

This is what happens when you have a Ford tech who is "underpaid" for warranty work that drives a Chevy. This is a recipe for being pissed!

Funny thing is that guy had a 6.0L and says he loves it... Dealer techs see the same trucks every day so I can see how their opinion is jaded. But still had some relavent info in it... And yep banned woops
