The first time it happened, I narrowly missed hitting a telephone pole, as I did not know the engine had died until I continued to steer the vehicle around a slight corner and it would not turn until I exerted heavy effort on the steering wheel. Also I put some diesel fuel injector cleaner right into the fuel filter, truck started running good again but smoking a little. They claimed if we had gotten it to them first, the damage may have only been a few thousand dollars. A class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Ford Super Duty Truck or Excursion owners. He had it towed to his mechanic who said the car had a secondary solenoid that had gone bad. If i had, we likely would never have purchased a 6.
I made this large investment based on Fords rep and I expected to put a half million miles on this truck which is never going to happen. I loved my truck, took care of my truck, and had good service from my truck…until the warranty and extended warranty ran out. If the lights dim and there is little or no cranking when you attempt to start the engine, the starter may be locked up, dragging or suffering from high internal resistance, worn brushes, shorts or opens in the windings or armature. One wire will have B+ all the time, across from it on the other big post this is the feed to the glow plugs. The low-pressure oil system begins with the oil pump drawing oil from the oil pan. There has been no recalls as of yet to take care of this.
I purchased this truck based on my years of good experiences with Ford products. Unusual noises slow cranking, etc. The oil travels from the oil cooler to the oil filter, and any pressure greater than 20 psi bypasses the oil filter and travels to the high-pressure reservoir. Can anyone let me know what a reasonable price is? The 03,being the first year for the 6. My truck has 187,000 and my warranty expired October of 2011. Is the oil level and the wait to start light related? My truck was burning from under the hood. That test costs the customer between 250.
The magnets in permanent magnet starters can sometimes break or separate from the housing and drag against the armature. So I recommend anyone with a 05-07 if it has not blown next time the turbo is off go an extra step and update that fittind. Check the sensor mounting and wiring harness. Just bought a 2004 ford F350 Lariat 4×4 with the 6. We have a few friends with Fummins. I have a replacement 2005 6.
I was going to sell of my 99 F350 4X4 lariat Super cab 7. It is only a matter of time till all the glow plugs fail. The entire cab had to be pulled off of the frame so they could work on it. If the starter motor spins but fails to engage the flywheel, the cause may be a weak solenoid, defective starter drive or broken teeth on the flywheel. As the fuel is injected into the cylinder, the fuel pressure drops and the internal spring re-seates the pintel.
I would appreciate having his contact information. We still owe 6,000 on it and has sat for two years now and we are just out of our minds trying to figure out what repairs really need to be made. Every one of them are lemons. So guess what I did. I always like to tell people there full of it about the 6. The charging range for a typical alternator might be 13.
I purchased my 2004 6. I have heard of a few people who had a crack in the engine and that was where the water was going. Is this the first time the engine has failed to crank or start, or has it happened before? I bet I have put at lease 50 fuel filters on theis truck at 50-55 per set. They have to be set up for the tasks you plan to do with them. If you deleted it, that could be the reason for your great success with the 6.
We were told that currently 18 people are apart of the class action law suit. Pretty stupid and not checked enough before approving to put into service. Scanned the code - camshaft position sensor failed - replaced. Within the first few months it had an oil leak. Got to drive it maybe a couple of months after that.
I take great care of my trucks. I would really like to be a part of the existing lawsuit. There is a nationwide class settlement that has been preliminarily approved. We know that the 6. With high mileage pushrod engines, the timing chain may have broken or slipped. Check for voltage and ground at the injectors.
