How common are the HPFP failures

I have looked everywhere and probably read too much on these failures. I have had myself sold on a 06-07 6.0 and then doing what is needed to make it reliable. The more I think about it, the more I like the 08-10 models. Only for looks and interior. I have a travel trailer that I pull occasionally, but that is it. So I would not need massive power that the 6.4 can provide.

Have owned diesels from all of the big 3. One 7.3, One 6.0, Cummins x 2 and Dmax x2 (I can turn a wrench but not a diesel expert by any means). I have always thought the Ford by far was the best looking, but my research has me wary of the $8-10k repair bill if the fuels system takes a dump. I can handle radiator issues, but if this HPFP issue is a real possibility, I don't know if I am willing to take that chance. I always fill up at stations I consider busy so bad gas would be "less" of a chance than other places.

If I bought this truck and added the Airdog 2, is there a higher level of comfort with that set up.

Lastly, the main question is, "Have I made this a much bigger issue in my head than it really is?"

Thanks for your info. I enjoy the site.

I cant say how common it is, you hear about it here n there.

But, I was looking at late model 6.0's and almost had the trigger pulled on an 07....IM glad I went with the updated truck and the 6.4. Thing is an animal.

Point well taken. One just has to remember, mainly the problems are what the forums get used for. You just hope your not one of them.

I had one to fail on me in my truck at 59k miles. At least it was under warranty.

As mentioned, the internet makes it really easy to cry wolf.

All we can do is take preventative precautions. Drain your water separator regularly, fill up at stations that get allot of service and don't let your tank sit near empty for prolonged periods to lessen condensation.

I did see for myself today the almost microscopic metal flakes in the diesel drained from my hpfr. Drained it into a cap and in the light you could see the tiny specs of metal. I assume it's from the pump. Did'nt look to healthy
