Hi Marc, I would keep it, I bought a 2008 F250 XLT 6.4 4x4 back in August 2008, I ordered this truck from the dealer in May 08 and waited for it to come. Anyway, I have not had a single problem with the 6.4. After the first 60,000 KM, I deleted the EGR and added a MBRP 5" exhaust system with a MiniMax tuner. I was extremely please with the mpg & power increase.
I love this truck. It is currently been in the shop for the past 4 years, getting totally restored*, Engine only gets a few external components, but the frame was completely stripped of every last nut & bolt, being sandblasted & painted including the underside of the cab all painted. All of that being painted with $2000. of POR-15. I am now in the process of putting her back together.


* by reason of Ford's lousy rust protection & a very poor undercoating job by Ziebart.


Good luck with what ever choice you make.

My opinion... wait. First a question, they let you get a 30k warranty on a '08 with 120k miles?? I say push for the repairs and see how it does monitor it like hell. get ford to find anything that needs fixing so the other dealer/warranty can pay, they'll love that. I have a friend that loves getting "complete coverage" on cars a few years old and driving them straight to the dealer and getting the "list" of what needs fixing for the warranty company to pay.
Really though, I dont think there anre many perfect used vehicles out there for sale. They are for sale for a reason. I made my decision on low previous ownership and the dealer service history. I say find your out real quick... I equate 1 owner to more possiblity of maintenance, in my case with the ford service history it proved it. That being said, I'm a bit of a worry bug so the first thing I did was bpd oil cooler, hpop fitting, bpd egr cooler, ficm, trans flush, water pump, belt, coolant thermostat,7.3 upgrade/downgrade, did my coolant pressure test (passed)... because on the internet all i read was the 6.0 is the worst engine on the planet.... I'm only 16k miles on her since I updated, but haven't had an issue. But I'm also now 12k deep into an '05 crew 6.0 with now 142-ishk mile truck that I only drive in Fridays. And drives to california on weekends. But the one thing I do religiously is maintenance on filters , fluids and start my torque app before I even think about turning the key to start it.

Basically, it's a crap shoot.

If they have to replace all the hoses, that leads me to believe the oil cooler ruptured to begin with... And they didn't replace everything at that point.

Everything is expensive and time consuming in the 6.4 world.

You purchased a used vehicle with an extended warranty. Unless the dealer gave you some kind of money back guarantee, youíre pretty much stuck with it. If it breaks in half down the road, call two tow trucks because you own both pieces.

Use your warranty, and donít be offended if the service advisor and techs donít roll out the red carpet for you. Most warranty companies donít pay as much time as a customer pay job would, but find a reputable shop that will accept the warranty to work on the truck. You didnít specify, but Iím assuming itís an aftermarket warranty company. Personally Iíd have it fixed, and get rid of it.

Lastly, donít take things too personally. What you may perceive as an insult may just be good advice that isnít worded as diplomatically as, ď...have it fixed and get rid of itĒ. It may not be what you wanted to hear, but most people here arenít going to pander to feelings. In general the 6.4 doesnít take top honors in the reliability department. Thatís just the nature of the beast. Whatís on your side is the warranty, so it wonít be a burden on your wallet.

If it's aftermarket warranty, it pays retail time.
It's only warranty time if it's a manufacturer warranty.

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

If it turned into a milkshake, I'd try and get my money back, or get the value of it on another vehicle.
You can never get all of it out of there. Unless you pull the engine, strip it, and go to town with a pressure washer on a stand.
Why Ford always replaced the block (as well as all cooling components) If that were the case.

If it was just starting and it was just a layer in the degas bottle, different story.
Depends how far gone it is.

You're not 100% correct. The 6.4 is the worst engine Ford ever put in a truck (fun as hell to drive though till something breaks) No the worst diesel engine you could get in a truck has to be the 6.2 that GM put out in 1982.

On another note, it seems you hurt the OPs feelings and he's gone. Maybe he'll go to FB, he'll get lots of support there.

Really?

You come to the Org for advice and when it's given to you you crap on the person who offers it. In my world, we call you guys Askholes. Ask for advice but then offended when given to you then you'll do your own thing anyways and get screwed and come back for another round of whining.....

Here's my advice to you whether solicited or not (I could give a rip). You bought a 6.4 without doing a lick of research. You WANTED a diesel cuz hey they're fun to drive. Then when the **** hits the fan with the 6.4 (and it always does) you cry like a baby. No sympathy here.

We're all friends here dude. We all have each others back. Coming here and being an Askhole won't be well received AT ALL. Look at how long some of us have been on. Look at the number of posts>>>history and knowledge.

Rant over. Eat some humble pie dude.
