It took about a gallon to refill, and I made a point to watch it. Thank you, Sherry In july we bought a 2006 f250 6L, after having it for not even 3 weeks, we replaced injector 8 and ficm. Had to add 2-3 gallons this time. Will never buy another ford diesel.

Ford owners have been arguing that the 6.
I dont want to jinx myself so I will be cautious here. If you use Red in a car, it gives a lot of exhaust black smoke.

A process of elimination is required to find out the source and severity of white smoke emissions. It is what most us do up here in the far American Northern Country along Canadian Border. I can not through money at this 6. I take great care of my trucks.
May the Lord richly bless your and your family and help you find the right person to work on your truck. Hold on to your receipts for repairs. Gary The fuel filter could be the cause for this common problem in a diesel. But if at the end of the year I start hearing bad things, I will keep my 7. We have a full service shop staffed with knowledgeable technicians who are ready to squash any Diesel Repair issues. My mechanic says it is now bullet proof?? When this happens the engine will overheat from excessive friction and it will seize.
Went out bought a few older 7. You have 2 options if you need to keep the truck, you can add a few aftermarket parts that will probably resolve most issues, or if you engine is blown, then i would highly recommend turning it into a Fummins, i. That was in 2009 best advice I took. So I decide to keep it now I have to spend 6000 to make it run. Fifth and final time, the repair shop said, injectors, high pressure oil pump, head bolts, head gaskets. I am in Northern Ontario.
