How are they separate?So that's not a motor problem....It's an emissions systems problem. Apples and oranges.
Quitters never win.....Good luck!I’m terrified of it and it’s gone as soon as this weekend. I’ve had it.
Semantics I guess. The emissions are from the motor, the emission controls are part of the motor, and the emission controls are causing motor problems. I think going forward it’s pretty widely accepted the days of removing them are pretty much the way of the dodo. I could be wrong, but I wouldn’t want to be on the customer list when the feds go ape**** on it. (FWIW, I think that’s complete crap, and my 6.4 had a beautifully done delete very early in its life.)Cause when you can remove the emissions and the motor is still able to run....
Why are there two different warranties.....motor and emissions......
Cause they are two different things
The 15's and newer trucks are good motors. The 15's got a upgrade to the turbo which made a huge difference. The 17's got a bump on HP and torque. The 20's got even more. Engine is reliable out of the box. No need to change anything. My 15 has 64,000 miles without a single issue other than a recall for a PVC valve. I just maintain mine like you do. I have the Lariat trim, and I have seen new trucks in the $80,000 range but I didn't need that many bells and whistles. Sometimes lest things to go wrong.How are they separate?
I’m kinda with the OP, though more in search of info than maybe having already decided.
I have a 6.4, with just a shave over 100k and it’s outta here ASAP. Stock tune, only branded fuel, a commonly and widely accepted fuel additive (to avoid derailing the convo,) never below 1/4 tank. Every drop of fluid in the truck is as specifically recommended in the engine supplement from Ford, oil/filter/fuel filters changed every 5000mi, fresh coolant/trans/diff fluids, etc., etc., etc. There’s no preventive maintenance I skip, and it’s a turd.
Low fuel rail pressure codes, limp mode due to trans temp sensor, severe death wobble from right front, and just waiting for a cab off $10k repair for something fuel related I’m sure. I’m terrified of it and it’s gone as soon as this weekend. I’ve had it.
Is there anything made that actually works? I can buy an actual ranch for less than Ford sells a light duty “King Ranch” pickup to drive around on it. And still - failing engines and death wobbles? I’m not an idiot that brags about not even having to change the oil for 3 years or something, I take care of machinery. I just want to know what I can buy that will last with proper maintenance. ESPECIALLY if they’re going to sell it for almost $100,00.
(Note: Ford isn’t alone, I’m just about to lose my decades long brand loyalty if I can find something worth buying. I’m open to suggestions.)
