Front oil cover leakage. There are four trucks with the same problem at the dealer. The front cover bolt loosen themselves and causes a small oil leak that covers the front and bottom of the engine. This leads to multiple parts being replace that do not need replaced. After cleaning the engine and finding the leak, it is tightening four bolts that only three can be tightened by sight. The fourth bolt cost $4000 to tighten. This seems to be a known f250 issue.

I have over 118 pages of repairs dealing from electrical, suspension, engine failure, turbo, fluid leakage, oil cooler failure. Ejectors, glow plugs and counting. They continue to reoccur time after time and dealer will not cover. I met alot of consumers that has the same vehicle and they all are having the same problem. I know that Ford has sued the designer of the 6. 0 engine and won billions but will not attempt to assist the consumer. The right thing to do is, if you know that if there's a problem with a problem why not assist the consumer in correcting instead of doing a patch job. They will not attempt to do the right thing unless someone force them to do so. Thanks.

A shift cable broke on June 5, 2005. Contacted the dealer, they fixed it. Had several issues with the truck but this one was the bad one. The dealer gave no idication why it broke. Also, they had to pull out the motor because of an oil leak. Took the vehicle to dealer again because an emergcey light came on. Spoke with the service manager all he could say was that it happened to a couple of them.
While driving 50 mph engine stalled. As a result, consumer was able to move the vehicle off the road. Dealer stated that the oil sensor system malfunctioned, causing oil to leak.
I have a 1997 Ford F-250 pu with a turbo diesel. The turbo started leaking oil around an o-ring. Leak was severe. Took to dealer, and a technical service bulletin had been issued for this problem. I now have been told that my turbo is failing. I believe it is for the o-ring failure, which very well may be a design flaw and a very dangerous condition for an engine to experience. I believe a recall is in order and replacement of the turbo a necessary action for Ford to undertake.
The vehicle would lose power steering when applying the brakes. The power steering would return after letting off the brakes. The vehicle had been to the dealer on three separate occasions. The dealer changed various parts and the problem recurred. The hydro boost was not operating properly and the engine had an oil leak due to the glow plug boss bar orings.
Consumer notice oil leaking onto the block and the head on the right side. The vehicle has been inspected. Nlm.
1. The parking brake does not disengage after it is engaged. 2. The engine leaks oil between the engine block and the head on the passengers side just above the starter. The engine was replaced after going back the second time for the same problem.
Engine leaking oil through head gasket. Four attempts have been made to repair the problem. Problem began @ 17, 000 miles. Currently vehicles has 67,000 miles. First attempt took over 6 weeks to complete. All other attempts took 1 week. Additional problems with carbon build up in the engine have occured inbetween repair attemps. Any attempt to contact Ford to address the problem was a dead end.
Major oil leak coming most likely coming from the area of the left head where it attaches to the block or in that vicinity. I noticed a little oil the week previous on the drive way but was not to concerned as I had just changed oil. Yesterday, before leaving to christmas shop I fueled up and checked the oil it was about 2 qts. Low so added oil. This morning 12/19/99 I noticed a large quaintly of oil under the truck so I again checked the oil. While driving the day before the engine had lost about 2 gallons of oil in approximately 85 miles of driving. During this drive I noticed no change in oil pressure or any overheating of the engine hopefully the gauges are operating correctly. There was so much oil under the truck that it had saturated the left rear break caliper and the entire under body of the vehicle. I plan on taking the truck to the Ford dealer Monday morning.

Had to service head gaskets on two occasions, currently, going on third time, resulting in oil leakage.
Vehicle fails to stop properly when brakes are applied. Would shake and vibrate badly. Took vehicle to dealership, mechanic noticed rotors were warped, which caused the braking problem. Had them replaced after 10,000 miles. Engine stalls and oil leaks from the turbo into the inter cooler. Transmission does not shift. Tires began to bulge out, consumer did not specify kind of tires.
