DEF pump went out and stranded me

There is not a DEF section in the trouble area for the 6.7

My truck is a 2011 F350 Crew Cab 4x4 Dually King Ranch.

My truck quit running yesterday so I added DEF to the tank just incase the gauge was wrong and it still would not run. Had a gooseneck behind me so I had to pay up and above to have my New Frdo towed. Right now it has 2300 miles and Ford says the DEF pump went out........

I am a little upset with them right now over the tow...bill I traded my other truck in for the latest and greatest and now its costing me money..Hopefully this will be the last of my troubles for some time....

Thought I would vent!

I wonder if maybe there is a coating in the urea bag/tank (i don't remember which was finally used) that could've clogged in the pump?

My dealer told me that if ANYTHING goes even a little outta whack on these trucks that the emission sensors will shut em down. Cause i told him i would buy one after it had 100k on it and he said, well those little sensors and such might cause you downtime and tow bills with that kinda mileage. I thought these were supposed to be long lasting reliable engines? Only time will tell.

The engines will probably last for atleast 300k before major issues, but all the exposed sensors and crap like that will die long before....

exactly, but they are not reliable in my book if everytime a stupid sensor goes out the truck goes into limp mode. Cause there are probably quite a bit more sensors than even a 6.0, its all emissions crap.

This is off topic but it seems that even the newer f-150's are having issues as one of its o2 sensors points towards the ground enough that people have ripped the connector off the sensor during the winter snow and running in the mud, etc. While it doesnt cause a limp mode, it still idles like s**t because of it... Too many exposed sensors that are critical to engine functions.
