Sigh,, my 2011 has 84,000 and no issues, only an O2 sensor,, LOVE it,,
That is what I thought of my 2011, good luck to you sir!
I asked what I could reasonably expect for mileage life of this motor before one would expect to do an overhaul.
This truck has been used well within reason, towing loads of not over 15k lbs, I never really "lean on it" going up or down grades here in the west.
Response from dealership: crickets
I asked the tech if I could tear the motor down to possibly find what went wrong. He said Ford wants the motor intact
or I wouldn't receive the core value. I told them I would sell it to them for $5000 or I will turn it into a coffee table.
On a side note, the only code when the motor let go was "#4 cylinder injector voltage out of range". If I'm not mistaken this is the cylinder that is used for active regen. I'm sure someone on here could verify.
When the motor let go I was driving at highway speed (55 mph here in Oregon) pulling my fifth wheel RV. At first it sounded like a right front tire was coming undone, slapping the wheel well. Pulled over, stopped, noise still there, not a tire. Next thought maybe serpentine belt going away. Nope hood open, still running, don't want to shut it down yet and cook the turbo ya know. Shut its self down trying to jump out of the engine compartment. I know in my heart it dropped a valve which eventually took out the motor. My dumb #@@ guess, the regen cylinder exhaust valve was cooked and is the culprit.
Maybe some on here have other thoughts or ideas. I would certainly love to here everyone's thoughts.
It actually was quite humorous aside from the blown motor, as I was following my wife driving the F450 pulling a gooseneck race trailer, my son driving the Dodge dually and me bringing up the rear. Of course there was no cell service. Thankfully a nice gentleman with Oregon DOT gave me a lift to their service shop to use the phone. Called wife and son to ask them if they missed me yet. They said they were wondering what happened to me! I told them not to worry as I had food, beer, bathroom, parked in a good spot! Wife made the 80 mile round trip home to drop the race trailer and returning to finish the trip for the RV. She showed at about the same time the tow company with their semi- truck sized wrecker as I told them they would be towing a F350 CC with a 36' fifth wheel toy hauler. Got it all home with only a four hour delay, not bad concidering.
