Review

Any web search of the infamous Ford Diesel will let you know, its not if but when you will be spending a lot of bucks to rebuild the engine. Removal of the entire cab is necessary to gain entry to the engine. A defective EGR, Oil Cooler or over boosting Turbo Charger are all blamed for the head bolts stretching, and allowing the heads to left when the compression gets too great. The fix is spending $3,000 to $8,000 for new head gaskets, checking or replacing the heads, $1,000 to rebuild the Turbo. Replace the oil cooler and EGR, just in case. The 2008-2010 get terrible gas mileage and the 2011 needs a urea tank filled every 3,000 miles


Best Features

Nice looking truck, plenty of power, when it's running.


Worst Features

Recall the engine, and install ARP head bolts and black onyx gaskets.

2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty SuperCab 4dr SuperCab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

We lived at 8500' elev. when I bought the this truck w/6.0 Diesel. It produces a lot of power at hi elevation. Easily hauls a 3 ton Bobcat on utility trailer up hill. The injectors are sensitive to dirty oil and fuel. Had to replace injectors after ruining them with biodiesel extended oil changes. Upgraded to Elite Diesel Stage 1 inj and new flash. Now change oil every 3000 mi or less, use Seafoam fuel treatment, and engine is much happier. Burnt up one alternator at 84,000 miles. Replaced it myself in 10 minutes for $200. No other repair problems. Mileage around town is 16-17 mpg. Highway is 22-26 and truck is comfortable on long trips.


Best Features

Power and fuel economy. Hi revving motor and 5/6spd auto trans gets this puppy moving.


Worst Features

Make motor more tolerant of poor fuel and dirty oil. Fuel additives, 16qt oil changes and $30 filters hit the wallet hard. Will be interesting to see if Ford's new 6.7 will be any better than the Navistar it replaces.

Review

A lot of power in small package.Pull a 34 footer and does a fine job. No real problems other then 2 recalls. Love the auto transmission with brake. It`s like a car to drive very responsive and braking is great.


Best Features

Auto transmission braking, accessibility to controls of radio lights etc.


Worst Features

I have the Lariat model and would like to see a little more wood accessory on dash and more chrome on door handles and mirrors.

I tow a 10000+LB RV 90% of the time. My truck has the 6L diesel TS transmission. It is a super performer and handling truck. Love it. PS Do not like the low speed noise.


Best Features

Nice interior, very roomy and comfy. Like the looks and build quality.


Worst Features

Less noise of diesel engine like Duramaxes.
