Smile Idle idle idle IDLE NO PROBLEM

Straight from the Program Manager that Designed and Built this New 6.7 Power Stroke Not to worry about idling under normal temperatures and that in extreme temps after a full day of idling to just run it down the highway to blowout any condensate that may have formed. He said I do not need to hook up the SEIC. He said congratulations on new truck. I said so Im not going to have any thing to worry about and I can idle every day at work. Just drive down highway and blow out condensate. Awesome

Well after buying my new truck and then reading owners manual I took truck back. The dealer said they were going to find out from ford engineer about extended idling and have a answer for me Monday. They did not have any info on Monday so I looked into and I found the number called and left message he called me today. I asked him some questions he answered and I was totally satisfied. He asked how I got his number and I told him I have a iPhone.
Engineering has not got back with my dealer yet. I told mr A.G. I would not give his number out. I called dealer and told them and they said yea whatever. The info I got from him could help all. I've talked to alot of dealers from Mo to Alaska and get different answers about same question.

I have almost twice as many idling hours as I do driving hours. The truck is a moblile office with a large hard wired inverter, I sit in my airconditioned recliner at my desk probably 6-8 hours a day....idling. I think it goes thru a little extra purified urea idling (DEF).
I need to learn how to purify urea....I am squandering a small fortune marking my territory..

I would drive on highway and blow out after idling especially in the winter. I was told I could idle all day long in the winter but drive it to blow out condensate before turning motor off.

Hmmm. Sometimes I start my truck so I can use my trailer lights if I need to work on my snowmobile. It would be kind of a pain to have to always have to disconnect and drive around. Would you still have to blow it out if you were using the elevated idle?

Probably not. And you could get the same effect by holding the skinny pedal to the floor in park for awhile.

You don't need elevated idle unless you've got a load on your engine. Last guy had a good answer using the skinny peddle and rev er up. I would try using a
Flashlight or headlamp so you can use both hands.
