Warning of issue with Ford Diesel Engines
By dianas1 on


2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty FX4 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Ford corporate recently told us that we need to test the diesel fuel every time before filling up our 2008 Ford diesel F250.
This occurred after contaminants were found in the fuel and we now have up to $12k in damages.
The truck has less than 70k miles and this is the second time this has occurred (first at 24k).
Truck still under warranty. No abnormal driving, primarily highway and occassional pulling of a 3 horse gooseneck trailer. All scheduled maintenance, including fuel filters, was regularly performed by a Ford Dealer. No warning lights came on before engine shut down.
Through postings on diesel forums and leasing associations, we are hearing this is not an uncommon problem.

Worst Features

Diesels have been around for years. For Ford to suggest that their diesel customers must now test the fuel everytime it is purchased is unreasonable and unacceptable. Ford needs to improve the fuel system and warning light capability.
