How does the moss magnuson act of 1975 section 2302 interfer with a extend warrenty? The Ford extend warrenty states you will follow the maintenance manual. Why are people buying the 6.4 and paying almost $7,000 more for 3 dollar fuel and a smog filter that costs $3,000 and has to be change at 100,000 miles, which is not that long for a diesel. You can buy a 5.4 or 6.8 for less than a $1000 more than 5.4. I was told the 5.4 in the SD is not the same as the 5.4 in the F-150. I was told this by the dealer, he also said to make sure they put the right 5.4 oil filter on it. I guess theres a different between the 5.4's. Anyone know any thing about it??

Jubliant is your leak coming from the over flow tank.If it is you might want to check if it is the problem of the heads lifting and putting compression in to water jacket.This has been going on since 2002 and includes 2008 .The heads on these trucks only have 10 head bolts compaired to 20 on 7,3 diesels.go to messages on diesels in the 500 range of messages,lots of info

that act prevents any dealer from voiding any type of manufacture warrenty.When I told the dealer that after they said they were cancling mine they droped it.You would have to chect on how it effects extended ones but I belive it works the same.

I am having this exact same issue with My F350. What is interesting is that I pointed it out to the Ford Store in Morgan Hill about six months ago and was told it was not an issue. Yesterday when I take the truck in for a recall the service guy opens the hood and the first thing he looks at is the radiator coolent and says "oh you have a leak". Let me see how much it will cost to replace the radiator. Bunch of scam artists.

Get ready for trouble. I have had 3 new radiators, new EGR valves and Coolers and the thing STILL doesn't work right. The regeneration process comes every 100 miles and no one knows how to fix it. I have 60,000 miles on mine and it breaks down all the time. Contacted Ford and they won't stand behind it. Prepare for a long drawn out tempertantrum if I were you.

There is a MAJOR issue with Ford and their radiators/EGR valves. My EGR coolers went out at 45,000, the EGR valve was completely clogged and they had to break it off in chunks to replace it at 60,000 miles. It still doesn't run right. It regen's every 100-150 miles and NEVER says complete. Took it to 1 shop and they said "nothing wrong" took it to another shop within 150 miles and they said there is something wrong. Sick of the whole truck.

its the egr valves and coolers, no codes will show up, ford tech's will look at you like a deer in headlights, but they know.
There is a problem here, MAJOR problem.

I have this exact same leak on my 2008 F350 6.4L. Took it into The Ford Store in Morgan Hill, California and they are telling me that it will not be covered under warranty. The truck currently has 41K miles on it and was in the shop for a routine service in December and nobody mentioned either the recall of that this seems to be a known issue with Ford 2008 trucks. Anybody have any advise as I dnt really want to pay $1690 to have the radiator replaced on a one year old truck.
Ford's only comment is that they issued a directive last year to have all 2008 diesel trucks inspected for this issue but they are not issuing a recall as it only seems to be affecting the early 2008 models. Anybody have any recommendations?

They now say it is a bad processor and the word came directly from Ford. The processor is sending out these erronious signals. They have ordered the new processor and I am waiting on it. This sucks.

I've read all these posts. I have had the rad problem. About 35000 Km. My dealership knew the problem and had 12 rads in stock. The reprogam was done and all it seemed to do was show me when exhaust filter was cleaning. I had the driver's seat element replaced. My milage is between 13 empty and 25 L/100Km loaded, 4 wheel drive in 6" mud and idling all day (some days I shows 99L/100 km. It won't go any higher. It never shuts off for a few weeks at a time) It's a F350 long box crew and has over 1 ton of tools and pressure unit skid in the back ( don't tell Ford about the overload problem). I'm turning 37" tires with a 2 1/2 " lift. I have ran all the big three and I want to say this is the best damb truck I have ever had. I Just got rid of a 06 Dodge and my back and and hearing will never be the same. I have backtracked on lease roads to pull Chevys that were plowing snow or mud with bigger lifts. This truck has the most power (dodge had more torque but I hated shutting it off at a drive through for them to hear my order). This truck has more cab space then anything on the market. I drive this truck, and all that I have owned, like they do on the commercials. This is the best damb work truck there is and this is the first one that I am happy with in all the aspects of my job. I get tired of people complaining about things like injectors and milage. Dodge goes through injectors evert 15000 Km and brakes every 10000. Chevy acts like a plow out here and the front ends are in for repair all the time. These are the best trucks on the market for the time being. If you have a problem with milage increase your rates. You bought a truck for work and that is what this truck does best!
