They diagnosed it as a rear cover seal. An aftermarket coolant filter is also a must to remove the remaining casting sand and particulate in the coolant that will eventually plug the oil cooler, and cause the oil cooler and egr cooler to fail. The truck still ran and looked as new when I sold it! There are many common problems with the 6. It's towing and hauling capacity are great. Not so bad for a heavy pickup that spent its life pulling heavy trailers. The newer trucks are all quiet and have even more emissions related crap than the 6. Most of the problems with the 6.
No Review Date: 21st June, 2007. Model year 2005 Year of manufacture 2005 First year of ownership 2006 Most recent year of ownership 2009 Engine and transmission 5. I'm tired of driving rentals. I have the same oil leak. Overall I am very pleased with my choice of this pick to haul locally as well as pull a camper into Colorado and beyond! Transmission was replaced at 50k because of a weird shift flaring issue that was intermittent. General Comments: As a business owner, I have owned five F-250 super duty trucks. I checked the fuel milage and its doing better than I thought, 19 per gallon.
No Review Date: 16th October, 2007 Faults: I've had the same problem for 21K miles. It sounds like a traditional diesel. This is a very common issue on the 6. It's interior room and creature comforts are beyond the level expected in most pickups. The original owner put 45,000 miles on the truck in a single year pulling a cigarette boat around the country, then sold it to me cheap as he buys a new truck every year. It is the last real diesel in my opinion. It looks and sounds aggressive.
I wouldn't want any other engine in my truck besides the 6. Model year 2005 Year of manufacture 2004 First year of ownership 2006 Most recent year of ownership 2007 Engine and transmission 6. Model year 2005 Year of manufacture 2005 First year of ownership 2006 Most recent year of ownership 2010 Engine and transmission 6. Ball joints wear out quickly. Year of manufacture 2005 Most recent year of ownership 2012 Engine and transmission 5. This is the primary reason why they fail.
The inside smells of smoke but I new this before purchase. All were worked hard and maintained by a fleet mechanic. Change the oil every 5k and fuel filters ever 15k and you'll have a super reliable truck. General Comments: I like the truck. If you tow a lot of weight all of the time, you could maybe expect some head gasket issues. Don't believe the Dodge and Chevy hype, I've owned them all, and nothing compares to the Super Duty Ford! All have given good service past the 200,000 mile mark.
Yes Review Date: 19th February, 2012 Faults: Power steering hydroboost started leaking around 30k, and was replaced under warranty. The trans worked fine and was tight, but I complained enough of the shift flare that they replaced it with a re-manufactured unit. This last time they had to pull the engine. Ford F250 desial Everthing on the truck is sound. Yes Review Date: 26th April, 2010 Faults: Needed a total brake overhaul at 65,000 miles.
The appearance it looks new. Good ride for a truck. General Comments: By far the best pickup I have ever owned. Oil leak, oil leak, oil leak. I put another 20,000 on the truck in 3 years, pulling heavy dump trailers most of the time. .
The resealed the rear engine cover and replaced the rear main seal as a preventative measure. Ford replaced the O-ring, then the main seal, then the oil pan gasket. Have had a few 6. Don't expect great gas mileage. Lot's of power, very comfortable, great layout.
The interior is amazing, especially the King Ranch. I got an acceptable 18mpg hwy when not towing, but that dropped to 12mpg when towing trailers in my local area. No other repairs needed, just oil and filter changes. I also run 1 oz of 2-cycle outboard oil per 1 gallon of fuel to keep the fuel injector and upper cylinders lubricated with the new ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel. I would purchase another vehicle form them when in the market again. .
