Angry Another F250 6.0 disaster

Well the turbo in our f250 let go this weekend. Anyone else had problems with their 6.0 Diesel? As many problems as Ford has had with these engines, youd think there should have been a recall. We bought this truck used, last November. Changed the oil in it once and bam $7000 was the estimate to have the turbo rebuild. The mechanic said it should last another 75 or 100,000 miles after its rebuilt. I told him thats not much of a sunny outlook.

Wish I could help you but don't own a Ford. I can however recommend http://www.thedieselstop.com/ as a place to post what's happened and see what feedback you get. I'm a member of the Dodge / ***mins diesel forum and there's lots of discussion there and I'm sure you'll find the same with Ford owners. You'll have to register but that's a little thing in order to get some good advice.

Good luck!

Sorry but we have the F-150. Has done well even on the grades crossing California to the Midwest for two trips back and forth. But our tt is only about 6500lb loaded. Hope all works out for you

The biggest destroyer of turbos is people shutting the truck off after a long hard pull. You have to let it cool down for a few min.

Sorry for your misfortune barrelslime. As a past owner of the 6.0L powerstroke I went through five turbos in 59k miles under warranty. Even with long Idle periods after towing or not.

As a mechanic and who works on busses that have the 6.0 and the 6.4 , these 2 Ford diesels are known for all sorts of problems , from EGR cooler leaks , fuel injectors and yes turbos , the new 2011 Fords have a new redesign diesel, we will see what the future brings with them , as for the 6.0 and the 6.4 good luck if you have one .

Don just reminded me of the F250 Powerstroke diesel we had back in the mid-90's. It was a 7.3(?). We didn't have probs with it. The one memory I do have was that it had a very rough/stiff ride. Sorry to hear the later model diesels have problems. Let us know how the feedback goes with the diesel forum

The 7.3 was a great engine, the school district I work for has a few with almost 200,000 miles , but do to emissions the 7.3 was put to rest by Ford , and the 6.0 was born . After the problems with the 6.0 they came out with a redesigned diesel , the 6.4 . All 3 engines, the 7.3 , 6.0 , and the 6.4 were made by International , after the problems with the 6.0 and the 6.4 Ford and International parted ways due to all the problems . The new Ford 6.7 diesel was all Ford design and I hope its better then the last two.

Well heres a update on the truck. The turbo was only part of the problem. Come to find out the head gaskets are going as well. The truck goes into the shop next week for a procedure I shouldnt talk about here, but all should be fixed soon.
