Problem with 6.0 Repeats Itself
By F350 Overheats on


2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Overheating problem is persistent and common with 6.0 diesel motor. Three times the EGR cooler and Oil Cooler went bad. Three sets of headgaskets in first 100K miles. Coolant is always low because it loses it. This condition runs rampant in this motor. Ford will do nothing to determine or fix the root cause of the problem. Nor will they offer alternate transportation. Three year old truck has spent two months of that time in the repair shop. Ford considers this acceptable and they do nothing to compensate for lost time without work truck.

Best Features

Tows well when it is running properly.

Worst Features

The motor makes takes what is otherwise a good work truck, and turns it into a lawn ornament for the dealership service department.
