2006 F-250 6.0 Oil Leak

Just purchased a 2006 F-250 and noticed an oil leak the dealer tells me the bed plate is leaking and they have to drop the lower part of the motor. They will need the truck for a week.

Is there a question here or just stating your frustration. For that repair the motor comes out of the truck. I've had it done on 2 6.0. No big deal it the right tech does the work.

Odyssey batteries, FS-2500 oil filter, Dieselsite coolant filter, Line-X all over. - Original HG - Oil & egr cooler finally died at 220K
I hate when parts fail before 300K! Waterpump, well not pump, but corroded aluminum around seal caused leak.

Unfortunately, this is not uncommon, and yes they'll likely have to pull the motor to fix it and you'll be without wheels for a few days to a week. The good news is that it's covered under your standard 100k engine warranty ... as long as there are no signs of mods and abuse.

After posting the question, I did a search on this topic Im new to the forum and also a new diesel owner and have this problem. Yes it was frustration also, I read so many post and some have had luck some not with the repairs. It is being repaired at a ford dealer and they insure me it will be taken care of and that it is a common problem. Thank you for the replies.

How much do you guys think it would cost if it was not covered by warranty, I have an oil leak that looks like it is coming from somewhere up on the back of the motor, I dont think its the rear main seal though.

I've been told if you have the motor pulled for the bed plate after warranty you can expect a 3-4K bill.

Oil Leak

Dealer called today and said the truck is done, they wanted it to sit over night, test drive the truck again tomorrow and go over everything before I pick it up. Other than crawling under the truck and looking for leaks should I look or ask the dealer anything before taking delivery again.



Thanks
Tom

Tom..if oil leaking was only concern & nothing else stated on r/o that's it. If tech. finds something else while test driving etc. would imagine they'll tell you? Dont know if tec. lifted cab or pulled front end, but before u sign off take a close look at body etc. & all ok. JMO!

You might wanna check at your leisure..for any loose bolts/connections etc. Just aheads up cause I found some after my repairs. Hopefully tec. got it fixed right & all ok now. Good luck!

Picked the truck up the dealer also changed a couple of glow plugs, service engine soon light came on while doing their test drive which led to the glow plugs. So far so good.
Thanks for the information.

follow the maintenance program to the letter (oil, tranny fluid, coolant, filters, etc...) document it all, wait till warranty runs out to do any mods. the motorcraft products were designed for the truck. if any thing happens and you keep good records it shows ford you are doing as they say and expect their product to last until the next.
you said it was your first deisel. these trucks run great when they are taken of and the owner understands how it all works.
this web site has taught me a ton about the trucks so when work needs to be done i can understand and talk to the tech about the work and the cause
