FORD 6.7L POWERSTROKE ISSUES in Wheat Ridge, CO


 
This is probably the best built modern day light duty diesel engine available. Some will argue with that statement but we know this from experience. It doesn't matter who is the manufacturer, Ford, Chevy or Dodge Ram there will always be issues or weak links with a mass produced mechanical apparatus. Here are some of the most common issues we are seeing with this engine.

THE MOST COMMON PROBLEMS ARE:

 

COOLANT LEAKS:

The coolant fitting on the turbo will start to leak over time due to heat, cost to repair is about $500.
Another place that coolant leaks develop are at the right side of the main radiator, we are not sure the cause of the issue but we know it will cost $1450 to replace the radiator.
 

EXHAUST GAS TEMPERATURE SENSOR

The EGT sensors have have high failure rate and cause the check engine light to come on along with a stop driving message. Ford has extended the warranty coverage for these sensors to 8 years or 120K miles, if your past that warranty period it will cost about $280 to fix.
 

EXHAUST LEAKS:

The exhaust manifold bolts/studs have tendency to break at the #4 and #8 cylinders, our theory on this failure is extreme heat and rapid cooling cause pressure on the bolts and cause them to snap. This repair requires the turbo to be removed and possible replacement of exhaust manifolds. Average repair bill for this fix is $1400
 

TURBO CHARGER FAILURE

Early model 6.7L turbos (2011-2014) were designed with smaller housings and have issues of bearing failure due to over speed, these turbos have a problem producing boost at high altitudes. In 2015 Ford went with a different style turbo and fixed the issues plus gaining 40 more horsepower, sorry the new style turbo will not work on the 2011-2014 6.7L. A new turbo is $3500 installed.
 

DEF SYSTEM (DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID)

A check engine light on with a DTC (diagnostic trouble code) P20BA Reductant Heater A Performance. This is the heater in the DEF tank that keeps the fluid from freezing, unfortunately this requires the replacement of the DEF sending unit assembly. The cost to do this is $1400
