car   Gas Recirculation Valve (egr Valve) problem 1
Failure Date: 11/13/2013

My Ford f250 super duty 2006 model truck started up just fine on way to job site and then about 1:00 p. M. That day my truck over-heated even though no indication on the electrical panel. I saw white smoke coming out of tail pipe, started over-heating, and I was losing power in motor. I put water in coolant over-fill because all of my antifreeze drained out and I just had put in prior to this date above about two weeks. I regularly change the oil and maintain all the fluids and do required maintenance on truck per the mileage. I was able to make it to my house where I waited 30 minutes for truck to cool and then drove immediately to diesel mechanic named [xxx] who knew immediately what had happened because (6) other trucks came in the same week with the same issue which was to replace the egr's and also the oil cooler. My bill for this was over $3,000. 00. I was very lucky that I had work and was able to pay for this huge expense otherwise I would be out-of-pocket in a bad way because the truck is my livelihood in my making money as I am a general contractor and need a heavy duty truck. I think that there should be a re-call on this part because of the six other trucks that came into his diesel shop the same week. This was a very expensive experience and I feel like Ford should know about this and correct the error because this part should not go out on a super duty truck like this.

Failure Date: 02/20/2012

Egr and oil cooler failure. . . Caused engine failure and hydrolock situation. The engine stopped the truck right in the middle of an intersection almost causing an accident. Total cost of repairs to my vehicle $2542. 42. Sure would be nice for Ford to have a hand in the repairs due to their faulty engine design. I have read 100's of reports online about this and Ford still will not fix or help pay for their engine. Ford refused to help with repair cost. I only have 98000k miles. Please launch an investigation into these complaints. I believe you will find enough evidence to warrant an investigation. I am sure that the lobbyist at Ford are doing their job to keep this from becoming a recall situation. It is hurting no one but the owners of this 6. 0l diesel engine!!! we need your help!.

Failure Date: 07/25/2010

Ford 6. 0l diesel egr and oil cooler issues. How many millions of dollars are the owners of these engines going to have to shell out before Ford recalls this motor. When these components go out, there is a total loss of throttle response, and large clouds of white smoke that pour out of the exhaust which poses a huge safety concern. When mine failed, I was able to limp through an intersection just before an 18 wheeler broadsided me. I had my wife and kids in the vehicle with me and we almost lost an entire family. Get it fixed Ford!!! NHTSA has to pressure Ford into getting this recall started. This is an ongoing issue with these motors, and it needs to be corrected on Ford's account.

car   Gas Recirculation Valve (egr Valve) problem 12
Failure Date: 05/27/2010

During replacement of sparkplugs in a 2006 Ford F-250, 5 plugs had to be bored out due the plugs disintegrating upon attempts to remove them. The repair costs are $600-800 to remove the remainder of the plugs and install new plugs. When the Ford service representative was asked what caused this problem and if it would occur again the following answer was provided. During product assembly at the factory , no lubricant was placed on the sparkplug threads in "some models", causing the base to weld itself to the engine. This caused what should be a $300 repair to more than double in cost. Ford should have to bear repair costs to bore out the plugs, not the car owner. This problem is widely known, but the consumer has no course of action except a costly legal remedy. I will no longer purchase Ford products based on my recent problems with their products.

Failure Date: 06/01/2009

Any time I get on the interstate pulling my 7000 gvw trailer, the check engine light comes on. The code is always the same, under/over boost and then you limp along for a few miles and it will start working again. During this time it's hard to maintain a constant speed. The check engine light will come on within 10-15 miles of highway use at around 60 - 65 mph. Every owner that I talk to that has the 6. 0 litre diesal tells me that they all do this and the only way to fix it is to install a egr delete kit at around $1,200. 00. This will cure the problem but will pollute the air more. It's just a bad design and Ford's not going to do anything about it unless the nthsa steps in.
