I have a 2008 F-350 with 21,000 miles. I had the reprogram done at 19,000, and the "drive to clean exhaust" message no longer occurs. I received a letter from an Attorney advising me that he is representing all Ford super duty owners who have had trouble with injectors, radiator leaks, etc. Now I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop. If you are interested the Attorney is Premier Legal Center 877-441-4441. I am trying to find out what to do next witrh this truck. I am afraid that I will just make it to warranty and the then it will fall apart. I love the truck, I just dont want the problems. My mioleage right now is about 11-12 MPG. Not sure what to do next, feels like holding a hand grenade in your hand and waiting for it to go off.

Interesting...did Ford give you another 08 or did you get an 09? If so, what is the difference in your opinion? Thanks

I now have 52,000 miles on my truck. It seems to be getting broke in pretty good. It has gained in power ever since it was new. I had the reprogram done in January. I have been getting 16.2 mpg driving normal (70 to 75mph highway). I have saw 18.9mpg on one tankful driving very carefully (55mph highway). It is hard to drive like that all the time though. I have been out of work since December so I haven't been towing anything. I have a 6 speed manual transmission, regular cab, 4x4. The truck goes through the cleaning cycle about every 300 miles.
I haven't had any troubles out of it yet. I like this truck, its quiet, smooth, and very powerful. Does anyone have 100,000 miles on one yet?

I have just under 52000 on my truck and it is still given good performance. Had the computer update done about a month ago and the recall on the radiator valve. Two days after the valve was installed on the radiator it started leaking and was replaced under extended warnity. this is the only problem I have had with this truck. After reprogram mileage increased slightly. Around town every day driving I'm getting anywhere from 13.5 to 15 Highway driving 65 a pretty constant 17 to 18.5 and saw 20 mpg on one tank driving 60 on flat highway. I will be leaving monday morning to the outer banks . Last year I got between 8 and 10 mpg on this trip. I will give an update when I return. I'm still very happy with this truck.
#319 of 403 99 F350 EGR System Fault
Jul 24, 2009 (6:12 am)
I have a 99 F350 v10. I have been getting a check engine light, had it read and it was the EGR system Fault code. I replace the EGR valve and the EGR sensor. I reset the check engine and after a few days of driving I get the same check engine light coming back on. What else could it be?

I have one of the first 08 fords 450 and my warranty was canceled by ford, they tried to say my engine was sludge and this was two weeks after turbos had been replaced, by a ford dealer it took two weeks for that repair, my truck stayed in the shop for three months for them to tell me the engine was sludged. My mechanic, who use to work for ford, says that I got fuel leaking into my oil after he changed my oil a couple times he noticed that after draining the oil he was getting almost 2 five gallons buckets full. Its a lot more going on also. I need to know if anyone know of an attorney, that can get me out of this mess, an after i`m out I`LL NEVER BUY ANOTHER FORD AGAIN !! THESE TRUCKS ARE A PIECE OF CRAP AND FORD WON`T STAND BY THEIR PRODUCT. FORD SUCKS!!!!!!!.........

It has 133,000 miles on it. I replaced the EGR Sensor and the EGR valve. I just finished replacing the EGR sensor again (on warranty). The truck still doesnt run correctly. It does not have low end punch like it use to, and it just doesnt fell right overall.
