I went thru the same thing, My F-250 had 41k miles also. Took it in for service and they said they had a few recalls 1 being the value that causes the problem, That recall was issued in Oct 2008 and said to have it replaced by Jan 31, as I did after the replacement my Radiator started leaking and they told me I needed a new one. I had it replaced at my cost. I pulled all service records and started with the service manager, I was able to produce all documents and the truck was fine until they started replacing things. I had to go owner of the dealer ship which I scheduled a meeting for, by being able to produce all documents that I followed What ford had recommended, he said it's not up to the dealership, but he did make calls to ford and Ford did cover this under warranty and I'm waiting on my refund at this time.
Others, if your truck is under warranty, get this checked ASAP, if you are out of Warranty, keep all paper work, and plead your case properly, also everyone should file a complaint with BBB as instructed in the back of your owners manual. The more of us that do this the better chances are for a Ford Recall on the Radiator.

Ironically, I get the call today that the processor came in and was installed. However; They notcied my radiator leaking and have ordered a new one. It will be installed today and ready for pick up in the morning. The service manager said they have replaced over one hundred radiators at this small dealership. Unbelievable.

Picked up the truck today and it seems to be running well. Shift points are different but the power seems fine. Ford rep just happened to be there. He said that the radiator I received is the revised one and that will last the life of the truck. They had been replacing the bad ones with "bad ones". That is why they put two and three of them in because they didn't have the revised radiator to replace the bad ones with. With all of that, my hood was scratched and they will have to repair that next week.
He also said that Ford will have it's own diesel motors begining 2010.

#305 of 400 EGR, ECM or something else

I have a 08 6.4L with 21k miles. Had the software updates at 16k and engine ran fine. With 21k started the truck, white smoke, no power, felt like it was running on 2 cylinders. Shift points changed, mileage went in the tank and power was horrible. Managed to get the truck to the dealer; they were clueless for the first 2d and now claim its the EGR valve; and of course Ford has not issued the release date for the revised part so it was setting at the dealer. Picked it up and now its setting in my driveway waiting for parts. For those who have been here, how long did it take for the parts to arrive, did this fix the issue or is this just another ploy to get it out of warranty?

See my recently posted email; right now I am not exactly thrilled
Mar 06, 2009 (1:42 pm)
Had the reprogram done, it didn't seem to do anything. It's now been about 1500 miles and I still have not seen the exhaust cleaning cycle yet. Total of 12,200 miles on the truck. Now the mileage has dropped to 8.5 to 9.1 mi/gal in the last two tanks. I have not changed driving habits and in fact drove extra careful with the last tank. Can anyone help or have any suggestions.

Don't buy a Superchips Cortex programmer. I wasted $400 and got 1 more mile per gallon.

Check your oil... if you have more oil in it then your injector's are leaking.

Yes they know, there are MAJOR Problems surrounding the 08 Ford 350's. Check your oil, if there is more oil in it when they drain it then your injectors are leaking. MAJOR. Do you have stuttering in it only on occasion?
