High mileage 6.4 powerstrokes?

I wanna hear about the people who got well over 100k miles on there trucks. Wanna know if there were any repairs and what you did to help her stay running so long. I got 57k on mine but have only put 11k on it myself(2nd owner).

191k on mine and only a belt tensioner has gone out on it. I plan on doing a egr delete, coolant filter, and a external tranny filter to help the life of my truck

I've got 150k now and it's just the basic maintaince for the most part will keep it running. Do the easy stuff when it says like oil-fuel-air-tranny filters, do the rear diff every 50k, transfer case and front diff every 150k, Coolant flush-belts-tensioners every 100k. Then the big ones to longevity are deleting the DPF/EGR systems. It's nothing crazy, just need to take care of things as soon as needed.

Glad you put that. How do you change tranny filters? And when are you suppose to get tranny regularly serviced? And how to flush differentials? Sorry to get off point, this is the reason I started the thread though. So that I know all maintenance that is required for a healthy and hopefully long lived 6.4 diesel.

Tranny should be done every 30k. As for the filter, there are two different styles depending on your trucks build date, but the easiest way to tell is just crawl under and look. If you see a soup can sized object in front of the tranny pan, then that is your filter which I have no experience with. If you dont see that object, then you have an enternal filter which is what I have. Servicing is as easy as draining oil from pan, pull pan off and clean, pull internal filter out which is easy to see once pan is off, put new filter on, put pan on then refill with oil. People will come on here saying you need to have Ford do it with their fancy machine blah blah blah... I've done mine this way since the truck was brand new and have had zero issues. Also 3 different diesel techs have told me as long as you service every 30k your fine by just swapping oil and filter.

As for the front and rear diff, it's easy. There is no drain plug, just unbolt the covers, let oil drain out, clean inside of cover and remove old gasket material, clean gasket material off diff housing, make sure to scoop out remaining oil at bottom of diff housing, use the Ford grey gasket silicone and put bead on cover, install cover and refill with proper oil. Always remember the rear diff needs 8oz of the friction modifier as well.
