My 2016 F250 decided to blow up yesterday so I guess I will see how good Fords warranty coverage is. It has less than 15,000 miles on it. was taking a couple things to my work and had just pulled in to the parking lot and it started running rough and knocking a bit.Barely enough power to park it. I don't think it was a rod knock, not a heavy enough knock. More like the valve train disintegrated. I guess I will find out soon enough.

Any tips for dealing with Ford over this? I would hope they provide a loaner.

The 15's on down had lots of valve train problems. The valves would stick and whack the pistons. I don't know if they fixed the problem in 16 or not. This is more than likely what happened.

Tips? Good luck with the dealer.

BTW: On edit.

You don't think Ford is going to give you a new truck do you? About the only thing you might get is a new engine. If the short block is good you won't even get that.

Sorry to hear about this. Hope your local dealer is good and takes care of you. Not sure they will have any loaner f250s? That might be tough. It stinks, but this stuff happens. Good luck.

Don't get your hopes too high. Several years ago I bought a Camry and when it went in for servicing the Toyota dealer had a fleet of Chevy Cavalier's for 'courtesy cars.'

Sorry to hear about the break down. I have not heard many issues with the Ford 6.7, so it's new to me. U got a good truck, hopefully they will replace the engine without an argument. stick to your guns on this, they may try to blame you on anything that they can find. Keep us updated, I'm curious because we run the 6.7 at work and they get run hard without any problems. Good luck, again sorry to hear.


A truck, a camper, a few toys, but most importantly a wonderful family.

Hope they get you back on the road quickly and with no hassles. First I've read of this type of issue with the Ford 6.7L diesel.

I would call ahead of time and request a loaner. If you need a truck, let them know. Getting in early might help as well. I’ve had my Explorer in multiple times and my Ford dealer has been great.
