Ford Lawsuit

Claim Forms for the Ford diesel engine class action settlement are now available at the Settlement Administrator website. If you purchased or leased a 2003-2007 Ford vehicle equipped with a 6.0-liter PowerStroke diesel engine, you may be eligible to claim between $50 and $825 from the class action settlement.

The Ford diesel engine settlement resolves dozens of class action lawsuits, consolidated as In re: Navistar 6.0L Diesel Engine Products Liability Litigation, that claim the PowerStroke diesel engines installed in heavy-duty Ford trucks and vans are defective and plagued with problems.

Ford denies the allegations but agreed to reimburse consumers through a class action settlement fund to resolve the litigation.

The settlement covers 2003-2007 non-ambulance Ford vehicles sold or leased in the United States and equipped with a 6.0-liter PowerStroke diesel engine. To be eligible to participate in the class action settlement, your vehicle must have received a repair, replacement, or adjustment during Ford’s 5-year/100,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty to one of the following engine components:

  • Exhaust Gas Recirculation (“EGR”) Cooler
  • Oil Cooler
  • Fuel Injector(s)
  • EGR Valve
  • Turbocharger
Who’s Eligible

Class Members that submit a valid Claim Form will receive one of the following benefits if the class action lawsuit settlement is approved:

Reimbursement for Post-Warranty Repairs to Certain Engine Components. If the Class Vehicle required repair to the EGR cooler, oil cooler, EGR valve, turbocharger, or a fuel injector after the original five-year/100,000-mile warranty expired — but before six years or 135,000 miles (whichever comes first) — Ford will reimburse the Settlement Class Member repair expenses up to the limits specified below, provided the Class Vehicle previously received a repair to that same component that was covered by Ford’s original warranty.

Ford Diesel settlement benefits

Potential Award

Up to $825

Reimbursement of Deductibles. If a Settlement Class Member paid a $100 deductible more than once for repairs under the five-year/100,000-mile engine warranty, Ford will reimburse $50 each for the second through fifth deductible paid, up to a limit of $200 for four deductible payments.

    1 have a 2005 ford xlt 4 wheel drive with a 6.0 engine and in 1 year first computer went out 1400 bucks and in 4 months egr went out another 3900 bucks so why don’t ford just say that there trucks is a lemon and just pay us guys who belive in ford so all you people who are considering buying a ford don’t until ford owns up to their mistake

  • B Campbell September 30, 2013

    I have a invoice estimate of approx 4,000 to replace all the parts necessary to make my 07 F-250 with 38,000 miles of some resale value, my turbo went out in 2009 with around 28,000 miles. I’m trying to keep my paid off truck from experiencing the EGR issues I’ve read about, will this lawsuit address this issue? Or do I have to wait for the inevitable EGR and oil cooler issues to leave me stranded. I already suffered the expected product performance issues on resale value, at least I would have the repair receipt showing the prevented problems.

  • joe carstensen September 30, 2013

    If your truck is over 6 year old it does not matter you will notget any money back, and it would have been in the dealership with them trying to fix, in my case ford said it was a loose hose clamp said they fixed it no charge s no file was made, samething happened about 2 months later same thing about 8months later I found the egr wss leaking took it back they said sorry your out of the 5 year date by 4 days but they could repair it fot 8 grand. Good luck on any settlement they will fight you all the way.if any have any suggestions let me know

  • Sam Gunnels September 30, 2013

    My cost on repairs was $927.50

    Is there anyway I can recoup some of my cost
    on this repair.

  • B Campbel September 30, 2013

    Soooo…no consideration by Ford/Navistar to pay for the preventive maintenance to the engine or EGR? With all the studies and information about the 6.0 issues it seems obvious it would be cheaper to agree to pay the preventive corrections to the Ford product before it inevitably crashes…what kind of law suit settlement is that? Millions of dollars settled upon and no real corrections to the problem? I would have bought another Ford Diesel, but now !

  • John Pullins September 30, 2013

    I had a 2005 F250 6.0 that was paid for and the heater started blowing cold air, I limped it into a Ford dealer on the road on Dec. 23 and they said it would cost $10K to fix. I had to trade it in for another rig to get home over the Christmas holiday. I lost a $25K truck for an $800 EGR!

  • Bill Proud September 30, 2013

    Ford will lose in the long run. Sales will drop as the word will get around.. I was flat assed lied to by their sales dep. and service dep. They said their 6.0 Diesel will tow a 24 ft.deck boat with no problem. The truck is a joke. Ford has lost me forever. What a sham Ford pulled off on their trusted long time “ford famley of brothers.” EGR COOLER, OIL COOLER, EGR VALVE, TURBOCHARGER, FUEL INJECTORS.
    What a good looking truck.

  • Commercial Door & Do October 1, 2013

    How about a class action suit for the fuel tanks? We own two F-350 6.0 diesel trucks, where the fuel tanks delaminated creating debris to run the fuel system, causing the fuel pumps and injectors to fail.

  • Allan Hanscom October 1, 2013

    Just curious, how many people experiencing these issues are or have at any point been ‘tuned’ and no I don’t represent FMC I just own an 07 6.0L 106,000 miles and trouble free up to this point. Honest only need answer.

  • bekki brown October 1, 2013

    wow what to so long for ford to settle for this little amount this isn’t even going to cover the amount its going to take to fix my 05 f350 let alone cover the amount I paid for repairs in the past or paying for the extra coverage I paid for I loved my for just thought I had I had just got a lemon but turns out I wasn’t the only one and I am still paying for it

  • samuel alvey October 1, 2013

    • william smith January 4, 2014

      sent claim form in Sept.2013!!!

  • Joe Carey October 2, 2013

    I’m screwed. Since last October I’ve paid over $6,500 to replace EGR cooler, oil cooler, turbo, and high pressure oil fittings for the injectors. But at just over 6 years old and at 113,000 miles, I fall into the “piss on you” crowd that will get nothing from this. And Ford will never get another dime out of me, or any of my thousands of social media friends once I spread the word. In the end, Ford will loose big time on this fiasco, because they wanted to “keep warranty costs down” but their bottom line sales number will be impacted much more dramatically.

  • Racen Malone October 15, 2013

    I drove my operable 2005 Ford Freestyle to Montrose Ford so they could repair my axle shaft. In the process of fixing my car, something got stuck in my transmission and destroyed it. They tried to find a used transmission to put in my car at no cost to me but the used ones they located had the same problem. They said that it was a manufacture’s defect and that Ford is responsible for it and that they cannot take responsibility for something that is a defect from the manufacture and that the transmission is non-serviceable. I had to tow the same vehicle I drove to the dealership back to my home at my own cost. I have pictures and receipts. My car is no longer operable and the transmission is destroyed.

    We bought five Ford truck for our company back in 2003. Four 350 with 6.0 Diesel engines and one F650 with Cummions engine. We lost thousands of dollars due to the downtime we had with the trucks for injector replacements and other issues. Ended up having to rent trucks to get our product to market. Heard the same old thing no one else is having a problem. Various issues with the F650.

  • Joey D November 16, 2013

    Yeah, I bought an 03 f-550 w/ 6.0. First truck for my business. Fifteen minutes later, Got 16 miles from the dealership and broke down on highway. That was the start of my experience from hell with the engine and Ford which lasted almost 6 years. I’m out thousands of dollars and this whole thing has sucked my will to live out of me.
    About all I can do now is drink heavily. Trust me I feel all of the pain and then some of fellow posters here.

    She basically said the sooner you got your paperwork in the sooner you’ll get reimbursed for the settlement.
    Hope this helps!

  • Rich Nichol December 24, 2013

    Has anyone checked into a new suit into the failed 6.4L engine? Ford falsely claimed that this engine would clean it’s own exhaust system without any input from the driver. What they failed to mention is that you have to drive (input) the truck a certain way or the system doesn’t work properly. These engines continue to develop expensive problems related to their over engineered emission systems, including excessive amounts of fuel being blown into the crankcase, not to mention the sad 8 mpg.

  • Lorry Stolp December 26, 2013

    Kept calling the 800 number as of nov 2013 kept getting a recording that it was not signed yet. Finally on Dec 20 2013 recording said it was final gave me a number to call left a message they called me back on dec 26 said it all has to be sent in reg mail before 31st of dec . We live 50 miles from dealer ship where it was fixed and 40 miles from a library since we dont have the luxury of a printer or computer . What a joke. Ijust think that they made it a pain becaause the less money that gets paid out the more $ 4 the lawyers.

    • Wes Williams January 22, 2014


      No there isn’t a website or email address to check the status. I can tell you that I was told by one of the attorney’s that if they needed more information on your claim you submitted they will get in contact with you.
      other than that all you can do is wait. I sent my paperwork in two days after the website said you could and still havent heard anything nor have I seen a check in the mail. After this month they wont mail the final checks out until March and that’s it….by that I mean if you dont get a check in March you wont be getting one at all from what I was told. Not sure why but that’s how it appears.

Needs the Degas bottle replaced hose on turbo leaking fuel out. The power steering pump and hoses leaking and a long long list of factory parts need replacing on the engine and I’m looking at over $12,000 I.

  • Terry R. January 24, 2014

    What do I do if I miss the cut off of this claim. I was not aware of the claim and I bought my truck brand new in 2007. I had to replace my turbo in sept. 2013 and now my rpms is jumping up and down when the truck is idling after being driven for a while

  • Frank January 28, 2014

    I purchased (3) Trucks in 12/06 (136K). Everything was fine for the first (2) years. But, I started having problems after 2 years on my work trucks. I finally had to get rid of my personal 250 King Ranch. And, I hated it. I’m still trying to figure-out how I’m going to unload the (2) works trucks. It’s unlikely that I’ll get a decent return on them. They both have less than 50K miles. I’ve sank over $5k in repairs. Not including the down-time. My faith in Ford is non-existent. HELLO DODGE!!!

  • glenn February 2, 2014

    Any update from anyone on if they have gotten a check? I submitted in Dec 2013 via certified mail.

  • Brian Kauffman February 28, 2014

    I made a $50,000 investment in a 06 F350 to pull an equipment trailer for farm use. Up to this point the truck ran ok. Since it is not a daily driver, I only have 72,000 miles on it. I figured the truck should last me 20 years. In the last two months I have replaced the FICM $1,3000 and cleaned the turbo $400. Now the oil cooler is out. The ford dealer said it is only $3,377. This is the worst investment I ever made. Like most of you, I trusted in Ford to make a quality product.

  • alex February 28, 2014

    Ford dealerships are sob’s. They are well aware of problems and send the customer under warranty away with cheap fixes. Once my 6.0 developed a heavy whistle, caused by a leaky head gasket they put a heavy duty radiator cap on it to fix the excessive pressure whistling. Half a year later, and now out of warranty, they diagnosed the head gasket and wanted to charge $ 7300 to fix it. My advice, shop around for cheaper diesel repairs and never buy a ford again. Haven’t heard of any lawsuits in Canada
    Alex- Canada

  • Marty March 2, 2014

    What a joke this POS truck is !! I have a 2006 F250 that wasn’t a daily driver. In April of last year, 2013, I had to have all new injectors installed along with the EGR….to the tune of $ 4,500 !! and in only had 58,000 miles on it !!
    I wasn’t informed about the claims and now I am stuck. I begged Ford to help me with part of this last year and they said there wasn’t a program in place to help me. They are a bunch of crooks and thieves.
    And what really makes you sick is to see one of their commercials on television claiming to have the hardest working truck out there. Me or my family will never ever buy any other Ford product unless they make this right and I am not holding my breath.

    Turbo, EGR cooler, Oil cooler, water pump, heater core, IPR valve. And I know I have a bad injector which so far Rev-X has kept working. Totally out of luck on the lawsuit since I have an ’04. I’ve driven Fords for almost 25 years. DONE!

    • Pete March 16, 2014

      Oh yeah, the FICM too. Probably the worst engine ever produced.

  • JOE GRECO March 16, 2014

    Do I have any chance of recovering any money for the 2003 F250 Turbo diesel I purchased in 2003? I’m just finding out that all this litigation is going on. I put in over $20,000 in repairs (yes, all the same things…EGR cooler, EGR valve, turbo etc etc) over the years and now its finally dead in my driveway. Having it towed to the scrap yard tomorrow. 176,000 miles on it and people are telling me I’m lucky to have gotten that. Found out about all the law suits from the Chevy dealer after I purchased a 2500HD 6.6 Duramax with an Allison tranie. (he asked me if I had a trade in to offer and all I could do was cry). I will be dedicating the rest of my life to talk people out of buying a Ford. Shame, after I owned Fords for 40 years of my life. Anyway is there any chance of getting anything out of this. I think it’s too late. Please advise.

  • Kevin Riddle May 30, 2014

    In November 2004 I purchased my “Dream” truck. A 2005 F350 6.0. I just turned over 60k miles on the truck. I was smart and purchased the extended warranties, twice. Still is under warranty until December 2016. My truck has been in the same dealership twenty (20) times! Two turbos, three EGR coolers, FICM, two oil coolers, rear main (saddle block), entire A/C system, three fan clutches due to high pitched squeal, bed was replaced due to factory damage, front clip pulled to get to rear main, overheating problems, heater problems, HORRIBLE turbo lag, HORRIBLE mileage. The list goes on and on and on…….

    First Ford I have purchased! Always been a Chevy Truck guy. Should have stuck to my gut feeling! I was told the Ford diesel was the only way to go for pulling my large fifth wheel. I have been fighting with the dealer every since I bought the truck. They “played dumb” and never revealed how much they knew about this ALBATROSE! Research showed they knew about the problems early on but kept it quiet. Ford was getting hit so hard with complaints, they filed a lawsuit with NAVISTAR and bailed on the contract a year early! By doing this, they kept from declaring a recall on the problems with the oil cooler which failed and caused the EGR cooler to go out which caused the EGR to fail, etc. etc.

    In December 2011, I wrote a lengthy letter to Ford Motor Company complaining about how they have literally screwed their customers. They sent back a reply which simply said “thank you for your concerns”, we feel the dealer is properly handling your complaints and to re-contact them. The audacity of them to do this to their customers is unfathomable!

    Last month I had my truck in again for over a week and they put in over $7,000 dollars worth of work. The service manager, sales manager and general manager for Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona know me on a first named basis due to this truck. They asked me if there was anything they could do to make me happy. I stated yes….Take the motor out and throw it down a mountain side…..I decided to get a hold of the regional representative for Ford and start “moving up the chain”. I was told I could not directly speak with the rep. All I could do was work through the dealership and they would contact the rep. FINALLY, with a lot of persistence, and I mean persistence, I was told by Customer Service at Ford Motor Company that the southwest regional representative would call me.

    I received a call from Mark Johnson, southwestern United States regional representative for Ford Motor Company. After a forty five (45) minute phone conversation, he basically told me there was nothing Ford could offer me. Said he was not familiar with the Multi million dollar lawsuit and did not know the specific issues with the 6.0 diesel engine. I was completely floored at his demeaning attitude and how he “blew me off”. I asked to speak with his supervisor. Mark said he had answered all my questions and was going to “close my case” as there was nothing more Ford could do for me. I specifically told Mark not to close the case and demanded to speak with his supervisor. After a looooooooog conversation, he said he would not close the case and would have his supervisor call me.

    I never received a call so I called customer service back. I found out Mark Johnson lied to me! Imagine that! He did in fact close my complaint case and there was nothing in the file asking to speak with his supervisor! After being persistent again, I was promised by customer service representative “Wayne”, that Marks supervisor would call me.

    I actually received a telephone call from Lenny Hendrick, Customer Operations Manager (COM) for the western United States! His number is 321-435-1206. Now I was getting somewhere! Or so I thought. He had the same demeaning attitude as his subordinate Mark. The only thing he offered me was either get in touch with my local Better Business Bureau or he was gracious enough to allow me to be put on their “X plan” which means you can buy another Ford as if you are an employee and get their discount! REALLY! I spent over $50,000 dollars on this truck and I am going to buy another FORD for the way they treat their customers! I will never buy another Ford again. My first and guaranteed LAST Ford! Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!

    My final thoughts to FORD Motor Company. You really screwed your customers and have no idea how this is and has negatively affected your reputation. Like someone else stated in a comment, I will for the rest of my life tell this story to whoever will listen to convince them to not buy a Ford product. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SALES!

  • Jim Heitzman June 23, 2014

    I bought a 2003 Ford diesel truck — thought I filed a claim in the turbo settlement but have heard nothing back — little disappointed as I certainly paid for the numerous repairs associated with this settlement.

    Interesting nothing noted about all the oil leaks on the early 6.0’s. Also, I bought my 2003 6.0 new and have never moved. NEVER got any notice about these actions. I have driven nothing but Ford trucks in my life. It will pain me to buy something else but never again will I buy a Ford.

    Similar story to everyone else posting here. Purchased truck new; maintained it passionately. At 25,000 miles, the clutch assembly failed; I returned it for warranty repairs and found the dealership was RETUNING IT without my approval!! I demanded to know what changes they had made; they refused to answer, up to the point that we nearly had a fistfight!! And, of course, as I was leaving, dissatisfied, a new person claiming to be the head mechanic (but not wearing work clothes) came up behind me OFF-PREMISES to whisper “we can read the computer. You will void your warranty if you put in a tuner. We won’t pay for repairs.”

    The truck developed the inevitable HPOP failure at 118,000 miles. Found that the oil cooler had also failed, and was living on borrowed time. Found that I had to purchase expensive software to read the computer’s internal codes. Had to replace the EGR cooler as well. Stayed on top of the (different) mechanic, who seemed genuinely surprised at how clean the motor was internally; thank God for Mobil One! Repairs cost $3000.

    I was never notified about the lawsuit or settlement.

    Put it together- Unauthorized reprogramming to mask the symptoms of a shoddy product; use of physical intimidation to gain compliance from a legitimate owner; no accountability for unauthorized changes; system engineered to not only fail, but hide troubleshooting codes that might have prevented the damage in the first place! Casting sand left in block destroys both oil cooler and EGR cooler! And a set of $50 coolant filters would have prevented all of this!!

    (It is worth mentioning that Ford sued Navistar over the unacceptably bad design and build quality of the Powerstroke. I know FORD got paid a vast sum of money for their incompetence. But Ford’s customers got screwed YET AGAIN!!)

    This is another FORMER Ford customer. When you treat your customers with this level of contempt, your reputation NEVER recovers! Suck it, Ford!!

    08 F250, Cost me over 12K for injectors and HPFP, fuel system cleanout, etc. Dealer polite, but unsupportive. Ford denied any responsibility twice. After buying 5 Ford vehicles, I am going back to GM.

    Ford refuses to back its products. I had turbo issues on my 6.0 F-250 in the first year of ownership. When cold if you stepped the pedal all the way to the floor it took 200 feet to get to 10 MPH. The dealership brought in a Ford diesel tech cause they couldn’t figure it out. The tech did something and the issue was cured. The next time my turbo completely failed and had to have it rebuilt. That was at the 126K and over 6 years old. So I didn’t qualify for this class action suit. Its now up to 143K and the turbo has the same issue that it had in the first year and again the dealer doesn’t know how to fix it and wants to overhaul the turbo again. Have a call into Ford once again to see what they will do to help cover the repair. I’m not holding my breath, but I find it ironic that there has been a class action suit filed and I’m on my 2nd turbo rebuild and Ford still acts as if there is no problem.

  • Dan August 5, 2014

    What I find really funny is the 5yr/100,000 mile factory warranty is standard and the lawsuit allows the vehicle to be only one year past that factory warranty. I’m with all the others and know I will never buy another Ford (found on road dead)product. You can see how they got that name!

  • Jennifer August 22, 2014

    I find this settlement to be unfair to a lot of people who purchased their 6.0L used. Post warranty repairs ” provided the Class Vehicle previously received a repair to that same component that was covered by Ford’s original warranty.” Please tell me how am I supposed to supply proof of repairs performed before I purchased the largest USED yard ornament I have ever seen????

    I purchased my ’05 Excursion 6.0L in 2012 and everything seemed to be great. I loved the looks and size of the Excursion. Unfortunately 3 months after purchasing the truck I had to park it and let it sit for 6 months while I saved up the funds to replace the EGR Valve, EGR Cooler, and Oil Cooler which was just over $2,000.00 in parts. Luckily myself, my fiance, and his father spent a weekend and was able to do all the labor ourselves. Would hate to see the bill if I had to take it some where for the repairs. After installing the Bullet Proof Diesel parts the truck ran better than when I bought it. :-( That was short lived how ever because the next break down came along….HPOP!!!!! Talk about being stranded (50 miles from home) and walking away from repair shop almost another $2,0000.00 later. And the breakdowns just continue to happen. I take very good care of my vehicles, for people to say it is lack of maintenance is not the case here. To date (2 years) I have sunk approximately $7,000.00 into the 6.0L just to keep it running for a short period of time. After MONTHS of research I have come to the conclusion that it will take about another $10-20,000.00 to make this engine indestructible. So basically I am looking at $17-27k on top of the purchase price. I will never purchase another FORD in my lifetime. Once I can get rid of this yard ornament I will be purchasing a Cummins….

    Unfortunately this suit did nothing for the many people out there like myself who purchased their vehicle used.

    We purchased (new) around 5 Ford F350 trucks with Navistar diesels, but never heard of this class action suit. Is there any recourse for us now? We purchased all from Ford dealers; have a ton of repair bills, and have kept all the records.

    I own a 2006 F350, it shutdown on me last week and would not start back up. I had it hauled to a shop and I am up to $6500.00 for a lifter coming apart due to the push rods being to long and causing to much pressure on my lifters, of course Ford will deny this as they have done on all the other problems with the 6.0. I hope the day comes when these people have to answer for ripping people off.

  • Kathy June 26, 2015

    I have a 2004 F350 Super Duty Powerstroke Diesel. In January 2015, I had to replace the FICM for $1503 total. Today, June 26, 2015 found out all 8 fuel injectors need to be replaced. Is there any relief for my expenses? Thanks.

      see August 31, 2015 response below. I posted in the wrong spot. sorry and good luck

    We purchased a 2003 Ford F-350 Super Duty V8 6.OL 363CID Diesel T P in 2003 brand new from a Ford Dealer in Riverside, Ca. We went through 20 injectors the first two years of ownership which were covered under Fords warranty. We continued to experience repair problems with each recurring year after the warranty ran out. We knew this vehicle was a lemon but Ford wouldnt do anything about it. From Aug 1, 2014 – Oct 1, 2014 our truck ate us alive to the tune of approximately $20,000 as the diesel fuel leaked into the cooling system and blew up everything rubber to triple its size. Had we known how this nightmare was going to turn out we would have pulled the engine & replaced it with a Cummins. Ford wont even take their own vehicles back on a trade-in! We need to recoup our investment! Help! My wife is a retired school teacher & this really bites into our retirement plans!

  • SPLASH August 31, 2015

    I was told to be very suspicious of a mechanic wanting to changed all 8 injectors. It is usually one or two or?? But not all 8. I had a diesel mechanic and he had the equipment to figure which one is faulty. Fortunately i had only one injector but still 400$ cheaper than all 8. The complaints I heard a lot is the mechanics are not spending the time to troubleshoot the issue and just charge into replacing something that didn t need fixing. Get another mechanic to check which injectors is really bad. Good Luck.

  • SPLASH August 31, 2015

    I too have horrible stories and didnt really knew I had a bad made engine. I own a 1997 F-350 one ton crew cab dually 7.3 engine and a 2004 f-350 one tone crew cab dually with a 6.0L 4X4. I own them both since new. The only one giving me trouble and not knowing I had a bad built 6.0L engine 2004. At 47,000 original miles I had a check engine light and took to the Ford Dealership in Corning Ford in Corning Ford, Corning, Ca. The dealership rip me off. Because I had a turbo charge problems ad they told me I had to replace the unit for a tune of $2300.00 and then I find out from a diesel mechanic all I had to do was to clean the turbocharge for $400. I was hot and mad AND i will not deal with a DISHONEST DEALERSHIP that should have clean up the turbo changer instead of replacing it with a new turbocharge. Not only I will not deal with Ford motor anymore but will not deal with Corning Ford. dealership too. To this date with only 48,000 miles I spent 2700$ and sweating to see what comes up next. I put an ad to sell and no taker. Truck runs good until the next surprise. Dam FORD. I was a Chevy man too and I am going back to GMC or Chevy or Dodge. No more FORD for not standing behind us Ford owners like all of you and I………..good luck to all

  • Mike Hotchkiss September 14, 2015

    I have a 2003 F350 6.0L made in Canada. I replaced 2 injectors and the turbo while under warranty at no cost to me. After the warranty was up I replaced 2 more injectors and the low pressure fuel pump to the tune of $4000. I was not aware of the class action lawsuit until two weeks ago. So, I guess I am out of luck. I have 265,000 miles on it and feel lucky after reading the other stories. I do think it is about time to get rid of it. Looks like I am going to Dodge.

  • Jack Matalka January 6, 2016

    I have a 2005 F350 and I had no warranty on this truck, The mechanic said they wont fix the problem if I requested the aftermarket head bolts because ford wont replace the parts. I now have had this done twice and i have spent over $11,400 on having this done twice. If this was such a problem then why wouldn’t ford have fixes this with newer head-bolts and a EGR kit so consumers wouldn’t have to go thru this? Is it too late to have something done?

  • Sarah Spradlin July 27, 2016

    Any help for people who have purchased 2010 F-250 Diesel SD trucks?? Ours has about 110,000 miles on it and we just had a fuel problem (we think gas tank sealant is causing problems). Not sure how much it will cost to fix it all.. we will have to have probably entire fuel system fixed and cleaned out because of metal and water/gasoline in the lines. I hate ford. Never liked them but had to get a heavy duty truck to pull our travel trailer 28′. Unfortunately we were driving and hauling our trailer when the truck just shut off at 65mph on a very busy highway.. Soo unsafe and totally ford’s fault after reading that they like to cut corners. Hope there is a new lawsuit for newer models.. I don’t think they fixed the issues; just paid the fines/settlements and never were told to fix the problems.. Shame on ford. I will NEVER buy another ford for as long as I live. I am going to invest my hard $$ into a toyota (they run forever). They make a diesel that could tow our trailer.. I am looking to buy one now.. Ford sucks!

  • Dennis August 31, 2016
