I have been driving versions of the F-350 for 25 years with mostly good results. DO NOT BUY THE F-350 WITH THE 6.7 ENGINE!!! There is a very good chance that the high pressure fuel pump will fail with catastrophic results. More importantly, if this happens, FORD WILL NOT HONOR THE WARRANTY!!!
Ford will either blame contaminated fuel or improper maintenance(not changing fuel filters every 12000 miles, for instance). One of our 2012 trucks(55000 miles) stalled on the side of the road for no apparent reason. Two weeks later, after blaming contaminated fuel(wasn't), then "improper maintenance", Ford wants $10000 to replace entire fuel system, plus injectors. I know from the blogospere that this is a systemic engineering problem with this engine. Please respond if you have had similar problems. FORD IS NOT STANDING BEHIND A FAULTY PRODUCT.

Although obviously trying to bankrupt ford with bad publicity. Good luck with that btw.
I will say. Our 450 at work did same thing. Hpfp went kaput. That was a $5k repair. They wouldn't honor warranty on it either, last I heard anyway. Fixed now though. I hardly ever drive it so wasn't me :).

Just curious what you will go buy if not a Ford? Go on the Cummins and Duramax forums and you'll see their issues...and you can find HPFP failures there too...and warranties being denied. I know that all sucks....but it's also NOT COMMON. Since we've decided to elect people to save our planet, we are getting "advanced" technology on these trucks. Sensors fail. Even though it's a small percentage....there are lots of them being used. Tolerances are getting tighter. Pressures are getting higher. If you want a new vehicle, these are the realities (stock). Otherwise, you need to go find and old one and build your "end of world" truck.

6.7L HPP Failure - Covered by FORD

Our HPP came apart and contaminated the whole fuel system. Researched and found this to be a problem and not just with Ford. We did not have any fuel contamination, the problem is that with all the EPA regulations, diesel fuel lubricants have been reduced to a point that the internal parts, especially the HPP's are not getting enough lubrication, resulting in the aforementioned failure. Ford covered the $12K dollar repairs, the rental car for the 10 days it was in the shop and extended our basic warranty to 5 years/100K miles over the basic 36/36K. So I've got not complaints about Ford or their coverage!

I had the same problem on my 2013. Repaired under warranty after every attempt to blame it on bad fuel and poor maintenance.

Isn't there a fuel filter and water seperator built into these trucks to keep dirt and water out of these engines? If it is dirt or water causing the problem then it seems like the repairs should be covered under warranty since it would have to be a faulty fuel filter or water seperator that caused the problem.

Or did I miss a memo?

You would think it would. But most that have had fuel system failures were due to water or other contaminants in the fuel. These result in denied warranties. On one hand I get it, it's not Fords fault that bad fuel was put into the truck, but on the other hand isn't that what the filtration system is designed to prevent??? I'm really wanting to add the diesel-site filter system, hopefully this years tax return is decent!!
