Whats your point of the post? You can go get a Duramax or Cummins. I love my 2018 6.7l. Fords been in house since 2011 and they got this motor down. Appears you did not do your research when you purchased that 6.4. All trucks have their good and bad years. So your post sounds like rant post that should be deleted as it really does not add any value here. Good luck on your journey!
Gonna assume that’s directed at me, but if not, the points still remain.
I did 2 years of research before buying a very low mileage and very well cared for 6.4. The crux of all of that research is that if you are mechanically inclined, do (sometimes expensive) preventive maintenance, don’t over tune, and watch the cooling system like a hawk, the 6.4 is a really good motor.
Hogwash. That motor isn’t good durability-wise, and last I checked before I traded it in it still had a big blue oval on the front hat said “Ford.” Not only was the motor bad, but the front end was/is a death trap regardless of how much money and parts were thrown at it. Ford knew it, knows it, even sent me correspondence addressing it (no recall of course, just a suggestion t slow down if it starts shaking. Which I assume also implied “hopefully before the right front wheel separates and crashes your truck?”)
Since the 2011 switch, there are still some bothersome things like the death wobble, but I believe the 6.7 is a real solution and I now have a 2017 I bought a few weeks ago as a CPO vehicle. I have LOTS of reading to do, and I missed the convo for a while for an elk hunting trip, but I’ll be back to reading until I feel I have something useful to offer. Hoping not to ask dumb questions.
