2003 - 2004 Ford Excursion, Super Duty and Econoline Alert!
Consumers have been reporting the following problems with their 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel engines and transmissions:
- harsh/slipping conditions
- harsh/delayed forward/reverse engagements
- bad fuel injectors
- valve stems cracking and leaking oil from the head into the cylinders
These are serious conditions that if left untreated could cause the transmission or engine to to fail. Some of the sympstoms are caused by a defect in the 2004 5R110 transmission. The defective transmission may have a low gear set pinion shaft(s) that may walk out causing metallic particle contamination which can lead to transmission failure.
The engines are reportedly suffering from defective fuel injectors which suffer from side loading which then causes raw fuel to flood and enter the engine's oil crankcase or hydro-lock the engine. Both occurences are so disastrous that a total engine replacement is often required.
The following 2004 Ford vehicles may have defective 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel engines or transmissions:
- 2003 - 2004 F250, F350, F450, F550
- 2003 - 2004 Econoline Vans
- 2003 - 2004 Excursions
