2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


My 2004 F-250 diesel, 79,292 miles, has been at the local Ford dealership since Sept. 7th. There are so many diesels broken down, mine did not get pulled into the bay for work until the last week in Oct. It is still in the bay waiting an engine as of Nov. 11th. Over 2 months in the shop. They changed the oil prior to diagnosing blown head gaskets, could not confirm if water was in the oil pan. Diagnoses was to replace the head bolts, gaskets, EGR cooler, rebuild an over boosting turbo, at a cost of about $3,000.00. After the heads were deemed unusable, the cost went to $7,5000. With coolant possible in the lower end, I had to replace the engine- $15,500.

Favorite Features

So much information has been written on the obvious faults, and the corrections that could be made if Ford were forth coming in disclosing the problems, before consumers were required to make huge investments on their engines. There is also a safety issue of the over boosting, engine acceleration

Suggested Improvements

I am requesting the National Transportation Safety Board investigate, find Ford at fault for knowingly not recommending service bulletins for:1)Replace overboosting turbos.2) Replace head bolts with the heavier, larger bolts. 3)Updated head gaskets and stainless EGR cooler.
