Local service department.

I love the folks at my local Ford dealership! They have taken great care of me since 94 when I bought a F250. But ever since I've owned my 05 F350 6.0, I've seen my friends at service a lot. So much so that my banker was telling me I was running out of money, and my accountant told me my business was giving all of my profits to my friends at service. My wife told me that the truck needed to go so that we could afford to something other than visit the service department.
So yesterday I bought a brand new F250 6.7. Damn that baby's nice. I drove it about 20 miles yesterday. The wife took it today to go to "the big city" appx. 110 miles away. She made it about 40 miles before the check engine light went on. Now the truck's sitting in my driveway waiting for Monday so I can visit my friends at service.
I'm so happy!!!!!

CEL is definitely not a good way to start with a new 6.7. I'd have called Ford Road side service and told them to come and get it. Keep us posted on the fix....

yup should have called ford roadside. free towing my friend! that sucks big time but its prolly just a sensor or something stupid. I cant imagin it being something that serious with very few miles. our 6.7 is a 2012 cab and chassis and gets a good beating and so far 12k into it. it has held up very well. We just cant be keeping these trucks past warranty. its just not worth it when your self employed. the repairs are so costly especially when its almost like we are the beta testers for them. you could pay the extra price to buy a diesel back in the day and in return you know your getting a truck that could hit 200k with out a serious overhaul. now a days your lucky to get to 100 without an issue. dont give up on the 6.7, in stock form they run great, maintenance is KEY!
