Default 2006 F350 6.0 Diesel

Does anyone have any opinions (good or bad) on these trucks. I had thought I had seen a thread not to long ago on ford trucks and people had some complaints about one of their engines. I couldn't remember if it was the 6.0 Diesel or not? Any advice would be appreciated.

Ford had issues with some that had a born on date prior to September of 2004. Mostly all computer control issues.

I think you'd be good with the 2006.

If it's a used truck being sold through a dealer, see if they can provide any service records for the vehicle.

If you are considering the new 6.4, I'd wait until they are out a while. I'm hearing they are having some issues with the emissions system.

A good web site to visit is Some great tech stuff there. I've owned Fords with diesels for years. If a problem develops I go there, post the problem and a tech or someone with a lot of experience will point you in the right direction.

I have a 05 and love it. I agree with glassman on the 03-04 6.0 powerstrokes. The bugs seem to out of the 05-07. The only ones I hear of failing are the ones heavly modified. If you're looking at used, get an oiasis report, it'll show all factory repairs. Another good forum is FTE Ford Truck Enthusist, just scroll down to the diesel section. Get the vin and asks someone on this site to look up the oaisis report. A lot of factory Ford techs are on this site and will get you that info,. Good luck!

Go check out website great info there, if it's from a dealer ask for an OASIS report, its a complete record of the vehicles history. Let me know what you find as I'm thinkin of selling my 97' 7.3 crew and getting something a bit newer.

franknbeans gave another good website, you should have more than enough reading to do.
