Oil Leak 6.4 super duty build date 8-17-07

Backed the truck out of the garage today and went back in to see two small drops of oil on the floor. Climbed under and looks like it is leaking on the back of the engine high pressure pump cover or above all over the trans bell hosing and dripping from engine oil pan corners. Don't see anyway to fix unless they take cab off or tear turbo's off and top end. If so ford can get me a new truck it will never be the same' I will go to court over this one 50'000 dollar truck and has oil leak at 2700 miles B.S that's what I call here we go again.

But, aren't you glad that Ford's cost-cutting, to bring you a "heavy duty work truck, built in America, by Americans" was implemented? I mean, heaven forbid putting $1.50 more in each truck that leaves the plant. A good seal(s) would just cost too much. It would also cost too much for Navistar to hire top-notch quality control folk. I mean, that could equal millions!

It would make it cost prohibitive to build them here then. Perhaps we need Canada-built trucks like the Silverado. Supposedly this saves $1500 per truck to build them there due to the lack of health-care issues.

My, just imagine the great seals you could get for $1500.

Look, I am the first one who believes you should not tolerate a leak on a brand new truck. Trust me I have fought that battle with Ford and won, BUT, I think you need to calm a little and let them take a look at it. The VAST majority of the leaks are pretty easy fixes and most competent techs can repair with little "intrusion". Unlike the 6.0 which was plagued with numerous design flaws especially in the bedplate, the 6.4, at least from what I can determine has not had those problems. Relax, take it in ask them to diagnose the issue, then ask them to let you know what is the problem BEFORE they undertake repair and then make your own decision on what to do. It is your truck, no question, but it is up to them to make the warranty decisions and how they are going to repair. Again, just relax, it is probably an easy fix. Good Luck to you.

Re: Oil Leak 6.4 super duty build date 8-17-07

I have been a mechanic for twenty some years now, and I have look at it, it's not good. But I will take it in and let them look at it. Problem is I just don't trust them even the smallest things at these dealers today get screw up, it kills me no pride in anything anybody does any more. And if it comes to it I will fight all the way for a replacement truck. I traded my 2003 6.0 liter that had no leaks, with 94,000 miles for a truck with 2700 that leaks it just burns my a$$!

That would tick me off too, I had a GM 4.3 leak at 1500 miles out of the timing cover and oil pan.

I love the truck, great inside, good power, awesome looks. But put all that aside and I just can't live with it leaking on my garage floor.

Re: Oil Leak 6.4 super duty build date 8-17-07

It only took a day to fix the oil leak for the oil pump on the front of my trucks engine. It took 7 day for International to send me some new fancy low press oil pump truck to try out and to see if it does any better 5,000 miles later and no trouble. At least let the guys at your dealership check it, they have been very well trained at my local dealership and I think over prepared for any trouble with the 6.4L.

Heck, I thought the Germans would have it right, but they don't My 06 Jetta TDI that I have put 22,000 mile on in the 14 mouths has had more trouble then any ford I have owned. 1st the trunk would not stay close that took 29 days, then a a/c vent fell out of the dash, after that a burnt out light warning kept light up on the dash, after that the the low tire pressure warning has come on and stayed on and the tires are full, and now the oil filter canister lid keeps leaking oil and I keep tightening it back down. It doesn't matter none of them have it perfect not the Japs, Krauts, or us Americans.

I suspect that there could be other mechanics MAYBE EVEN IN YOUR AREA that are above hack level that could help out. Where are you?

Re: Oil Leak 6.4 super duty build date 8-17-07

Well went to the dealer today and met with the owner and two diesel tech's. They confirmed leak, tech said it is either the turbo oil return line or high pressure pump cover. Owner insured me that all will go well ( for what that's worth ) But either way CAB has to come off. Tech showed me in the book, it is standard practice to do so.( But I don't have to like it ) going to schedule it to be fixed. Never thought I would get so many responses but thanks for listening just had to blow off some steam with truck being new and all. Still gets under my skin, funny thing is I will still buy a FORD I love my truck just a little less love for international (navstar) Thanks Gentlemen.
