2006 F350 6.0 with 62000 miles started smoking Saturday

Customer Question
2006 F350 6.0 with...

2006 F350 6.0 with 62000 miles started smoking Saturday morning. Assuming it was injectors, we stopped and added injector cleaner. Lost power and died on freeway. Towed to dealership. Evaluation by dealership: something mysteriously caused the injectors to stay open, destroying entire lower block. Repair fee: $15000. WTF???

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Power loss was sudden and final.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Taking it to another repair shop for a second opinion. How could this engine be destroyed at 62,000 miles?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Reading other complaints about this truck, I'm wondering if this truck should be covered by Ford.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
