Re: '04 F350 engines dies..why so soon
Before you go ripping the heads off, check the EGR and cooler. The EGR system on the diesels tied into the cooling system loop. If the EGR cooler failed, it would put coolant into the cylinders. I'll tell you right now that Ford will not offer any after warranty assistance at 101,000 miles, let alone 150,000. If the engine is indeed bad, contact RMP Remanufacturing. They rebuild the engines for Ford, and will offer the exact same warranty as the dealer, and probably a better price than the dealer.
