Not sure if i am putting this in the correct area but here is my problem = I have replaced head gaskets and I am not getting compression to build back up in the radiator? So could I have an internal crack in the head? Any ideas?

We have a 2004 F550 that was in the shop many times and Ford could correct the problem - stalling, caughing, white smoke. At 98,000 miles I contacted the State for info for the Lemon Law. Fact, too old for replacement, but you CAN get it fixed - under warranty. I did!

Just bought the truck. Got 17 mpg coming home from Atlanta. Is this about as good as it will get without a chip or some other warranty voiding action?
#375 of 400 Problems with 2007 Ford F-350!
Aug 26, 2010 (11:27 am)
I have an F-350 2007 powerstroke diesel. It broke down on me 4,000 miles of Fords 100,000 mile warranty. The reason it broke down was an over heating engine and becuase of that my engine blew up, and there is no fixing it. The only thing that will get my truck back on the road is a new engine. Again my truck only has 104,000 miles on it and its only 3 years old! Ford is refusing to pay for it even though I had the truck at Ford for the same problem less then a year ago, and supposidly the problem was "fixed". My truck is part of a fleet. Within the last 20 years my company has purchased over 30 Ford vehicals. We also have four F-450 diesels and every single one of them have had problems with the engines under 40,000 miles. There used to be a day when Ford diesels would run forever and now your lucky if you truck makes it to 100,000 miles. I would really like everyones comments on this issue for recent Ford Diesel engine problems...

We also own a 2008 F450 with only 39,600 k/m (24,550 miles) and only use it to tow our 20,000 lb 5th wheel RV. I have spent about 500 hours behind the wheel, and a variety of Ford dealers have had it in their possession for a wide variety of warranty repairs in excess of 1000 hours. There is something wrong with this picture! A summary of problems follows:
--four visits for engine overheating
--four visits for exhaust odour in cab
--rear main engine seal replaced twice
--cab removed for repair twice
--replaced drive shaft
--replaced radiator & fan clutch
--engine stripped down to the block once
--left stranded on busy highway towing 5th wheel
This truck would likely qualify for replacement under US Lemon Law, but Canada has no such laws, and we are at the mercy of Ford of Canada. To date Ford has shown NO INTERST in customer satisfaction, let alone any financial assistance. To date I have sent three formal letters of complaint to Ford of Canada, and they seem to think that phone calls from pacifiers who cannot speak English will make me go away. They are dead wrong. The gloves are coming off.

Do you have an update with your radiator problem? I just had the third one put in my 2008 F250. They didn't say anything about a revised one. First one was replaced at 31K, and now again at 63K. I had to pay $1600 for it, which is bogus. I know Ford knows they have a bad product...They ought to be paying for these things!

I have seriously not had one problem with my cooling system since Ford stepped up and replaced my entire radiator(s) with the new factory version. BTW-FREE!! I strongly recommend that you quote me to your dealership and tell them to step up also. This is only about treating loyal customers with respect. They need to do the right thing and also refund all of your money. Best of luck!

sorry to say you have a bad dealer. Just had the rad replaced on our 08 purchased in july 07. Our total cost (way to much) was $415.00. ford and the dealer absorbed the rest
of the cost under a after warranty repair program, The rad leak is a known issue call or better write ford and bi*** to your dealer who was to greedy to tell you other wise.
Love this 08 loaded ford f350 Ford had done more for use the dodge ever has.
Prior to this truck we had chrysler products for 15 plus years they wanted 700 plus for a 150 part....they wanted the fist without lube
