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.

I have heard very little about that new Ford deisel engine. Does anyone have any details?
#305 of 400 EGR, ECM or something else
Mar 01, 2009 (1:44 pm)
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?
#311 of 400 Expected MPG 08 F-250 Super Duty

I have an opt to purchase an 08 F-250 with the 5.4L V8 24V MPFI SOHC (Gasoline)
It also has the 5 speed auto trans.
This truck is new, has 44miles on it, and the dealer is asking $15,900
What kind of MPG should I expect from this truck?

Expect anywhere from 8-10 mpg around town and maybe 12-15 hwy. I'd advise the V-10. More horsepower and torque and the same or better MPG. Had one and it was a bullet proof engine for the 60,000 miles I put on it. Towed 14,000 lbs with no trouble. Think about it.
