Broke down!

I was running down the highway around 75mph and I hit the throttle to pass a big rig and the truck didn't have the same getup and go. It also seemed to miss. So I tried to limp it home and I got a signal to pull over soon. When I pulled off the highway she won't turn over. The gauges looked fine the whole time. But I did notice a "hot" smell that I never smelt before near the middle of the truck. Fluids look fine.

What you think guys? Anyone encountered this before?

Sry to hear that. Did it overheat? My buddies 2012 blew a coolant hose and it knocked out the turbo. Anxious to hear what the cause is...Ford has been aweful quiet about any known issues with the 6.7

How many miles? Any mods?? Stock everything??

any check engine lights, codes??

Hot smell in the middle... makes me wonder about the emissions...

As far as known issues, this truck has been pretty solid with the typical anomolies that any manufacturer will have to deal with.

Very interested in finding out what happened... maybe a prius got sucked into the intake??

29k miles. 100% stock. No codes

At 1000 miles It needed a urea pump, other then that it has been flawless. Except for the fact it's been threw attest 30 gallons of DEF since new

I know you said the fluids look good, but does the DEF fluid look good too? This sounds like a strange one to not have any codes....

Before I left to north Dakota from socal I had the oil changed and def filled. I was on my way back from ND so I'd say I put on 2400 miles at this point. The def has always given me a readout on the screen when I get under 800 miles and it continues a count down untill I refill

The shutdown / pull over now is usually cause the DPF is Too hot. (potential fire hazard)
That's probably what you were smelling.
I would make sure they didn't over fill the oil first.
