Diesel trouble
By diesel dope on


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


I've got 4500 miles on my new F250 with
the 6.0 diesel. Driving to work the
other day, the engine quit. Just quit.
No warning. Truck's been in the shop
for over a week, and even the Ford
engineers don't know what's wrong. My
last F250 was gas. It ran like a Swiss
watch (over 100,000 miles). Got 14 MPG
on the gas V8, getting 15-16 with the
diesel. $4,000 buys a lot of gas.

Rear end problems too. Looks like the
dealer may have to take the truck back
(lemon laws).

I don;t recommend the new 6.0 diesel. I
should have stuck with gas...sorry now
I didn't.

Worst Features

GO back to the old diesel, the new one's junk.
