Build date was November 18-2010.. Just Received an email from Ford Tier 1 CRC. Of course the guy by the name of Leif, stated that Ford has documented my concerns and suggest that I stay in contact with my local dealership. Due to the mileage of the vehicle ford is unable to provide assistance.


BUYER BEWARE of DIVESTING $60,000 into a truck that may only run 3 years, 124,000 miles. This is the Ford 6.7 Diesel F-250. Thinking of buying a Ford F-250 6.7 Diesel. Think again. New engine quoted at $24,000+ (Hopefully, these key words will get some good search rankings)

just fyi, this happens to all manufacturers, not just ford.

nut up to the fact and try and get a good deal on a used engine. attempting to pour scorn on a global company is a bit fruitless LOL

Really sorry to hear about your issues buddy. 24k is a ridiculous amount to pay for a 3 year old engine. That's pitiful to me. If It was my truck, I wouldn't be putting a 6.7 back into it. If your going to invest half of a house worth in bill to pay for the truck alone, it better last me the length of a mortgage. Lol. Hope all works out in the end. Just grab the reins and stay positive. :please: sent

Dude that sucks too hear what happened:tard:

Not too be a smart arsh but the 6.7L will never be the 7.3L, did the exhaust system have anything to do with the engine failure??? I thought that's what I had been hearing is the exhaust system is toasting engines somehow, but I also think the price they have quoted is way out of line. I'd look for a used engine or better yet get a 7.3L.

Sounds like a typical dealer lying and trying to overcharge a customer. Had a dealer down here in Houston tell my gf that she has to bring in her '13 for DEF fluid because shes not allowed to fill it herself cause the fluid is toxic or caustic or some ****. Then they charged her almost $100 to put in 5 gal. I put a stop to that **** real quick.

Find an independent shop that wont screw you over to make a buck. I can recommend someone in Houston and I can even offer to help you get the truck down here if needed.

Update:

A regional service guy with Ford called me today and said that ford had programs in place for this type of catastrophic engine failure. He said that Ford would pay $5,000 of the repair bill IF, I would pay the additional $2000 to the dealer for discovery and tear down. So that's actually $3,000. Then offered me the friends and family pricing plan as a second option if I wanted to trade the truck in. Talk about upside down. While I appreciate them reaching out to me, I am in no better shape than I was before the call. What do you think of this program and offer?

I'd put a used engine in it and trade it on a Dodge or go to a gasser. These Fords have gotten stupid expensive!

Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market. looks like 5-6k for a used engine

Find a wrecker selling a 2012 engine and get that put in at a recommeneded independent shop.

The 6.7 is actually a really good engine and is awesome with the deletes done to it. One of the reasons the early engines failed was due to heat from fuel being sent into the dpf during regen combined with weak valves.

Your timing on buying a new truck was bad. Take it for what it is and move on. If you search for 2012 and newer engine failures, you will not find any, for 2011 there are many. Ford found the flaws, refused to acknowledge the problems, repaired under warranty and changed the materials used for late 2011 and newer.

You can type in 2012 engine failures in the search feature right here on this forum and find failures. Let's not pretend they don't happen. The percentage is probably small given the number produced, but when it happens to YOU and the dealer is telling you it will cost $24,000.00, trading it in for another one is not at the top of my list. I'm sure it is an awesome engine when it runs as it should but not too many folks can take a hit like that when/if it does self destruct. Too rich for my bank account. I realize that any thing mechanical can suffer a breakdown regardless of manufacturer, but the cost associated with these newer diesels is beyond ridiculous.

i should have worded that as "you will find very few"

i searched and couldn't really find anything relating to "2012 6.7 powerstroke failure. there is a lot about the 2011's with the valve problems.

it's a tough pill to swallow but i figure it's going to be a huge waste of time and effort by the OP to try and get them to warranty it. at the very most they'll cut the bill in half or something and it's still going to be 12 grand.

the 2012 engines are known for holding together well so i figure $6000 on an engine and and maybe $3000? for install would be the best and most economical option for him.

Always hilarious how these threads in the 6.7 section attract non 6.7 owners like flys.

Glad you're so easily amused. Is owning one a requirement?
