The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic. This could be very hazardous even deadly. Continued driving until I came to a stop light. Upon further investigation I have found that this is a know problem. I drive at night since that is easier on my horses.
This is a safety issue. The absence of a partner seems to have given Ford an advantage over competitors, granting them the freedom to design an engine that fits their specific needs and the needs of their customers. Additionally, it streamlines the warranty process, which was partially responsible for souring the relationship between Ford and International in regards to problems with the 6. It appears I may be without a vehicle and have to default on my lender with the cost of this. A unique feature of the 6. On the first occasion, the incident occurred in a parking lot so there was no danger of injury or property damage. Vehicle was towed to dealer and egt exhaust temp sensor was found to be bad.
While driving 45 mph, the vehicle shook and stalled. Please look into this and see if there is anything I can do. The vehicle was towed to an unknown dealer to be diagnosed and a failure code for the engine valve was detected. The shutdown today, however, occurred as we prepared to make a left turn on a busy two lane road. Once pulling over to stop the truck died and would not start back. Less than a mile from my house, vehicle displays warning to stop vehicle safely. Leaving truck stranded in busy intersection.
The contact was able to coast onto the shoulder of the roadway. I had to have my wife exit the vehicle to a safe location and then have the vehicle pushed out of the intersection. Had to have it towed to a dealership. Soon as I slowed down and stopped the engine shut off. As with any new engine, potential truck buyers initially questioned the platform's reliability despite reports of extensive durability testing. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. After letting it sit for a minute or so, put it in park and it restarted, oil temp at 240, trans: Temp at 201.
Called Ford to ask if my truck was covered and was told no even through it is the same part and the same engine as the October 2013 recall of 2011-2012 Ford F 250 ambulance package vehicles equipped with a 6. One of the four egt exhaust sensors had failed. While driving 60 mph, the vehicle vibrated, emitted a knocking noise, and the engine emitted smoke. Ford suggests that software adjustments, cylinder head improvements, and increased turbocharger boost are responsible for the increases. Failure of 4 wheel drive system during adverse weather could result in a vehicle crash or loss of control. Discovered that Ford was under investigation on a partial recall of same part for same engine for ambulance package trucks. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was unable to be diagnosed.
Dealer told me it is a known issue with these trucks. Turns out the egt exhaust gas temperature sensor was faulty. Attempted to drive it to the dealership under the advisement of the service writer and it shut down again 2 miles from home. On this portion of the interstate there was no emergency pull off shoulder. The rep at the dealer stated it was probably a turbo log. The vehicle would not shift into neutral so that I could push it out of the roadway. Viscosity recommendations vary with ambient temperature; refer to owners manual Engine Weight: Approx.
This helps lower combustion temperatures and increase engine longevity. Break pedal was hard to depress, while in motion. While driving 35 mph, the engine stalled and an unknown warning light illuminated. Nothing wrong with the truck either time except sensor. I immediately call 911 to report that my vehicle was disabled in the roadway. The technician diagnosed that the engine egt exhaust temperature sensor needed to be replaced. I shut the truck off, and tried to re-start it, but it would not re-start.
I had to call a tow truck to haul the vehicle to the dealership. Fortunately, Ford seems to have hit a home run with the 6. Driving down the road at normal cruise the engine started making a terrible banging noise and shuddering so violently that I was forced to immediately leave the road. This is not safe if it happens when traveling down hill, fully loaded and the truck shuts down. This was an original owner, personal vehicle, and only towed a trailer on occasion. The vehicle is completely unsafe for what it was designed to do.
