Power Stroke Diesel = Problems
By Trixie1 on


2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Drives great, tows and has enough power. However- nothing but problems with the Turbo Diesel. Had it 2 1/2 years, and in that time it has had major engine problems at least 3 times. The Turbo went out. The "viens" in the diesel colapsed. The # 6 injector failed completely while on a trip, towing a trailer. Had to get it towed from the "middle of nowhere" to the dealer to fix. Under warranty, had a deductable of $100.00. After that, they covered the cost. BUT that did not cover the tow, and it did not instill any confidence for our next trip. Not sure, but if one more thing happens, it's gonna get traded in for a Dodge. Not at all happy with the diesel engine's reliability.

Best Features

Great looks. Nice power. Wish it were more reliable.

Worst Features

Don't block the speedometer with the steering wheel. Poor placement. My old '99 F 150 has been a dream. Over 200,000 miles, and still going. Not so, the 250 diesel. Speedometer placement much better in the F150. Ford shouldn't have changed it. Got the leather bucket seats. Not comfortable.
