I've been following the forums, and have not read many posts about 06's with problems. Are the 06's still having the typical problems (leaks, blowing coolant, stalling, romps, etc)?
Thanks for the info.......
04/04 Ford 6.0-PSD,auto,XLT,4by,crew.
I have had my 06 for 3 weeks now.
So far, better mileage than my 04 SRW.
No romps or anything, but I didn't have any with my 04.
I have a wet bell housing all ready. Just going to leave and it and see.
The horror stories seem to be abating number-wise just from my casual observation of this site over the years. There does not seem to be anywhere near the same number of posts about buy-backs and catastrophic failure of eng or tranny. The rear main seal has been a problem from 2003-2005. I do not know if the 2006s still have this problem. It is ridiculous that Ford would let it go 3 years without addressing it. Four years is worse.
No problems with my 06's, or 05's, or my 04 for that matter. Want to talk about my 04 and 05 Dodge Cummins???
