you could have a fully built long block from SPE or EDE for less than $24000
Yes I would be interested in your referral. Thank you for taking the time to respondLMK if you need a referral. You should be able to get a brand new Ford engine installed by a Ford master or senior master technician for around half that. It'll be at an independently owned shop though.
I have found that the best Ford diesel techs typically go out on their own and away from Ford corporate
I would approach Ford about participating the in the repair of the engine. They have covered some over 100K miles for broken crankshafts along with valve failures.Poormanscat, thank you for the info. What would the possible outcomes or accomplishments be to make it worth spending $1600-$2000 on failure analysis? I will do it in a heart beat if it would accomplish some sort of resolution. I'm still in shock and new to a repair bill this steep so I apologize if I'm missing something obvious.
Bought this 2011 4-door loaded Lariat with a 6.7 Diesel engine that was highly touted as the best diesel truck ever.
I service the truck religiously and baby it. Never been in the mud, never abused. Driving to an appointment yesterday and the truck started knocking then violently shaking from the engine. I pulled over immediately and turned her off. Looked under the front of truck and 13 quarts right there on the ground.
Had the truck towed to dealer and today find out the 1st and 5th cylinder are showing nothing. They removed the oil pan and crankshaft is jumping around freely. The long block is shot. The short block is shot and apparently the turbo and all. The sympathetic diesel mechanic felt terrible telling me that the entire engine and components need to be replaced.
The damage: $24,233.67........ Although he can tell I immediately shut the truck down due to no evidence of blowback in the exhaust, he said it was a possibility that I could be required to pay another $3,000-$4,000 if the exhaust showed damage after engine replacement.
I have no idea what to do. This truck cost $60,000++ and is only 3 years old with 124,058 easy miles on it. I owe money on it still so I am at a loss.
Any suggestions? Should ford cover this basically totaled truck? I'm in the midst of the dilemma and need advice or help from someone not emotionally tacked with a $24,000 estimate.
My plan is to cover every site on the internet with this info and contact ford to see if they will stand behind the product. This truck has cost me thousands with the exhaust sensors going out time and time again while leaving me stranded on the side of the road. I will not rest until everyone is informed of this and Ford stands up to their mechanical workmanship failing. Any attorney interested, please contact me.

Document everything and ask for some help!
The estimate for the engine assembly I have says $18,410 and some change plus tax, gaskets and labor as yOu can see. told me it was an engine assembly? So apparently from all posters, who I appreciate. This is high? You can see a photo of the estimate in my original post or hereIs the other $12000 for labor? That seems like BS to me.

2011s and 12s only had a 5yr 60k warranty. You had to buy an extended to get to 100kDave he did not have an extended warranty , the 6.7 has a 5/100,000 mile warranty

but with the miles over I doubt ford will step up without legal action very expensive legal action and lots of burden of proof on the OP
That is incorrect. The 5/60 is the powertrain warranty, ie: transmission2011s and 12s only had a 5yr 60k warranty. You had to buy an extended to get to 100k
Interesting. I don't why your arguing about it anyway. He's 24k miles out of the warranty. I sure hope they help him out but I wouldn't hold my breath. I've had issues with vehicles that were 100% clearly stated it was under warranty but dealer would not fix it because I bought it from another dealer 3hrs away.Nope that was a misprint in the manual. A friend of mine found out the hard way about 2 weeks ago
if the engine was built in either 2010 or 2011, it has a chance of having bad valves. Later 2011s have a lower chance. Early 11 models are almost guaranteed. Its just a matter of when one will fail.What's the cutoff as far as build date when they installed the updated valves, want to make sure I'm in clear
I bought the truck in December 2010. So it had to be a 2010 build dateif the engine was built in either 2010 or 2011, it has a chance of having bad valves. Later 2011s have a lower chance. Early 11 models are almost guaranteed. Its just a matter of when one will fail.
When they pulled the heads off mine for an internal coolant leak, they found almost every valve had surface cracks and a few had actually guttered.
