2006 F350 6.0 with 62000 miles started smoking Saturday

Customer Question

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???
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: Power loss was sudden and final.
JA: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Taking it to another repair shop for a second opinion. How could this engine be destroyed at 62,000 miles?
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Reading other complaints about this truck, I'm wondering if this truck should be covered by Ford.
