NEED YOUR INPUT ASAP

Going to look at a 2010 F250 6.4 tomorrow. What issues is this type of truck having? We are wanting to get out from under our 6.0 (heads just replaced)

We wouldn't mess with deletes, all we haul is a 3 horse slant horse trailer with full living quarters. And I would drive it to work.

So PLEASE...give me some input!!

Thanks!

If you are not going to delete the dpf, do not buy a 6.4. I know you dont want to hear that but it's the truth. 1 problem and youve spent the difference that you could have paid to buy a used 6.7. The 6.4 is an awesome engine when deleted and tuned but the stock emmisions WILL kill your engine at a very young age. I deleted mine and have had 0 issues. Just my honest opinion.

Fuel mileage seems to be the biggest issue.

As for weak points:
-Radiators
-Rad hoses
-Windshield washer spray heads/nozzles

I purchased a 2010 with 13K one year ago. Deleted the EGR and DPF with a good tune at 20K miles. I now have 35K on the clock with no issues. It runs like a beast!

Tune the truck and delete the EPA stuff and your new truck will love you for it. Expect +2 to 4 mpg improvements. Oh, depending on the mileage check your coolant. Mine was toast on both Nitrates and PH at 40k. Don't let the simple freeze point test fool you. I am planning on a coolant recharge or change every two year. Blackstone oil analysis is a good option as well at 5K oil changes. Have Fun!

What they said. EGR delete isn't just for power but adds to the longevity of the engine by far.

See if you can get an Oasis report on it too if you have the vin.

I agree. If you dont plan on deleting the egr/dpf i would stay away from the 6.4. If you tune and delete get one and enjoy it

The egr isn't even the biggest issue, it's the dpf. Bad fuel mileage, fuel in oil, and just the normal deterioration of the engine due to the regen process is the main issue. The egr system should be deleted for reliability and not have to worry about that component giving you issues but for sure the dpf has to go. Keep that 6.0 and the extra money you would pay for a 6.4, use to bullet proof it. Don't give up on the 6.0. It's a great engine. Not to mention, the 6.0 resale value is next to awful so you would lose alot selling it after all that work. Everyone wants one that has studs, egr delete, fresh oil cooler....etc. which hopefully you did all that when the heads were off???????

Bought a 2010 ccsb lariat August 2011 with 19k miles. I presently have 40,500 miles. Needless to say I drive her a lot. She's my dd and all miles are highway and around town.

It took me 5k miles and 4 trips to the dealer to delete. I haven't had a single problem since. These trucks are amazing--only if u delete the dpf and tune them.

If u don't wanna mess with tuning, buy a 6.7.

My two cents.

Im glad to see someone else say that. I just replaced my 3rd nozzle. drives me nuts. why dont they last? Sun? Cold? They are cheap to repair, but it gets annoying.

Not sure why they fail and don't last. Winters are cold and wet here. Summers are hot and full of thunder storms. Mine wouldn't spray high enough on the windshield. One would just puddle fluid on my hood and the other would go about half way up the windshield. When I went to replace the pooling fluid one, the other spray head broke so I replaced both. Now, they both spray about three quarters of the way up the windshield.
