Ford 6.7 litre Powerstroke

I just turned 10k miles on my Ford. So far only 1 issue with a DEF system fault which was fixed with a laptop. I am interested in hearing from others with this engine. How many miles and what do you think of your Ford so far?

At 10k miles I am very happy with mine. Plenty of power...actually kinda surprising power. Great TV. It can accelerate going up a mountain.

All of our customers are very happy so far with their 6.7L's. Some with over 100k already with minimal if any issues. Most stuff is minor sensor faults or TSB PCM reprograms. Only a few trucks with major issues like turbo failures, plugged EGR coolers or the exhaust valve replacement TSB. We service several fleet companies also and they are very pleased with the trucks. Since you are towing you will want to go by the severe duty maintenance schedule. This will increase fuel filter replacement frequency and the use of 5-40 engine oil.

Picked up a brand new one last Friday. Coming from a '10 F350 DRW. I can't wait to get everything in and hooked up for a weekend away! Want to pull the 5er so bad I can't stand it!

Went from a 2002 F350 7.3L to a 2012 F350 6.7L and love the truck. The only problem was the pins on the front calipers. Ford removed the rust and lubricated the pins.

24k miles. 2k with 14k trailer and 2.5 with 16.5k. Most times loaded.
Transmission was reprogrammed due to hunting during acceleration (non towing) at about 8k.
Had moved from a 2010 V-10.
Still smiling.

Took delivery on the 2014 F350 a month ago. Towing a very heavy fiver, and with only 3000 miles so far, I'm loving this truck. Lots of power!

I don't like them - will never have another one....
well, that is until I get tired of this one

Have tuned EVERY vehicle I ever had !
including the 3 Excursions before the 'old' 2012 F-250 below - the 2013 350 Platinum? it's quite enough as is !

old setup on top - new on the bottom !
(Yes, it's an optical illusion we didn't go smaller!)

but each of the big three have really stepped up their game and the trucks are nice !
