Oil Leak

noticed spots on my driveway and crawled under... looks like Ford will be doing some more warranty work on my 10 day old truck. Leaking oil is a bit unexpected for a $60k vehicle with "10,000,000 miles of testing", first year of production or not. Anyone else seeing oil leaks or know if there is some secret squirrel TSB on it?

Wonder if they are going to tell me it is bad fuel?

Hopefully it is just a tighten this, re-torque that fix.

On the upside, I have right at 3,000m on it and it still reads 100% DEF (which means it actually has between 76-100% left) and is getting right at 19mpg avg overall with the updated flash.

My 350 6.7, CC, DRW had a small leak from the oil pan gasket. Fixed with a new gasket. No more problems, running great at 5,000 miles.

Iv'e been watching the posts and this is the 1st 6.7 oil leak I have seen reported. So you take it to the dealer and they will fix it. Even a Rolls Royce can develop a leak. Just cause a truck cost 60K does not mean every one will be perfect. Hope the repair is an easy fix and the experience is quickly forgotten.

There was one who had reported a oil leak. But it was pouring. Many qts blowed back on his trailer before he noticed. It was a rear main seal. That didn't get put in proper. Other than that, that's all I've heard of.

Ahhh.. You are forgetting about the few that started the truck without the oil dipstick in or in all of the way... Major mess. Make sure your dipstick is in tight.

Otherwise, I haven't heard of any oil leaks either. Let us know what the fix is, in case others expereince the same thing.

I just got mine back last week and one item was the oil filler neck was leaking. We'll see if they fixed it, it was on longer highway drives that left a handprint size oil spot everyone's driveway. Replaced Filler Pipe, BC3Z*6763*B.

Also in for:
1.)New program.

2.) A knock in the left drivers suspension, TSB 10-07-03 had them add 2 1C3Z*1000145*AA shims on both front body mounts.

3.) Wiper blades, which compounded my problems since the hood is dented now. I'll be taking it back in to see if they can massage out the silver dollar indent on this thin hood.

4.) Rear tire wear which I've never seen on my old '97 running around with 80psi in BFG AT's on the same roads. They blame it on agressive vehicle launches and I say it's from bouncing on bad pavement or concrete roads around here. They're feathered at 1600mi. so I guess I'll be rotating side to side more often.

5.) Additional side effect is that it seems like they tightened the brakes.

Excellent, thanks. I'll spend some time under the truck with a flash light to see if any of these leaks exist.

Well I now have about 7K on my truck and last weekend up until today I've had a puddle of oil under my truck about 2" in diameter right below the bell housing. My dealer was booked solid and I was finally able to bring my truck in this morning. I'm patiently waiting on the call. As of lunch time they hadn't even looked at it. This is already my 2nd visit.. Not bad for a 60K investment.

To be honest I haven't driven it very much. In the couple of times I did I found the ride and power was much better than the LB7 that it replaced. My son drives that one and he really likes it. We currently have about 38K on it and so far it's been a great truck as far as reliability.

Also I just talked to the service manager about my truck. He said I have a leak on a lube oil line to the turbo. That was a relief as I was expecting the worst. They had to get a line at another dealer so I should have her back on the road Monday.

Looks like the TSB's are right about the oil leaks and the places to look. Glad you will be back on the road soon.

Good to hear Chevy got it right too.

Have the same exact leak myself on my 2014 F250 6.7. What was the issue with yours after all? I have taken it to the ford dealership and they said they see the leak but cannot figure out where its coming from.
