  • Hoovie my 6.0 went 210,000 miles before it had serious issues. At that point it had a head gasket leak (surprise surprise) so I studded and O-ringed it and I expect another 200k out of it. That's probably the crappiest ford diesel ever and it has treated me pretty damned good. They aren't that bad.

  • I've owned 2 7.3s (2001-2002), 1 6.0 (2005) and 1 6.7 (2012). Both of my 7.3s had 6-speed manuals, which I loved. My 6.0 had the 5-speed auto which was a decent trans but I hated the fact I couldn't select 4th gear. Of course my 6.7 had the 6-speed auto which was (is) a great trans. No issues with either 7.3, decent power. Ford had sorted the 6.0 by 2005 so it was actually my favorite (of the 3). I towed a 30' trailer with it A LOT and it did a great job. I only had the 6.7 for a year and never towed with it. Great power (ONLY 400/800 that year) and of course the fantastic 6-speed auto. Despite my previous experience with Power Stroke diesels I WOULD NOT buy a new 6.7 diesel. TOO much power and TOO expensive.

  • My 2011 6.7 has 230k on it and there are millions out there since 2011 they have 200k on them and still selling for 25k plus. These trucks are easily 500k truck. There was a 2011 few years ago traded in with 840k on it was a transport truck.

  • I'm a huge 7.3 fan and me and all my family members own a 7.3 powerstroke turbo diesel. But we also own a 6.7 and without a doubt the 6.7 powerstroke is the new improved 7.3 with a SHIT TON more power😂

I don't need a huge screen to stare at in the dash, my seats to massage me or the truck to tell me when I can get over into the next lane or not and all this BS that has driven the cost of vehicles up. As long as she runs good and the heater& A/C blow I'm good to go.

  • I got a basic barebones Ford Ranger and that’s why I love it. That F-250 is going to break down in at most a few years, and I don’t even want to call it a diesel truck. Also, my truck has less potential for computers to fail.

  • I’ve had my ‘97 E350 7.3 van for 2+ years, bought it for $1,800. I’ve put considerably more in for repairs, but none engine related! At 350,600 miles, the engine is rock solid. And it hasn’t had a proper oil change the entire time I’ve had it. But that is on the agenda!

  • I wanted a 7.3 Excursion. I also wanted better than 8mpg in my area and only tow a small boat and trailer. So I bought a Chevy with the smaller engine. The Excursion is the only Ford SUV that is still worth a shit, but, is also overkill. Not that it doesn't make my pecker stand up.

  • We have a 2016 6.7 in a bus with 350,000 miles. The biggest issues we've had; 2 turbos have went bad. One at 200k, then at 275k Had to reseal vacuum pump (bolts get loose on it) and oil filter housing. Thermostats started to break apart and stick open around 320k Accessory pulleys, main water pump, and tensioner done around 250k 2 constant codes, Bank 1 lean, SCR conversion effeciency Transmission still going great, and overall not bad reliability other than the turbos going a little earlier than normal.

    Dan.vakuDan.vakuPirms Mēneša
  • What twin turbos? Just one on my 2000 7.3 liter powerstroke. He must have been thinking about the new one while driving in the old one. Yes the 7.3 has its defects here and there like leaks at the turbo pedestal is a common one. You do your maintenance on your truck it will last you along time over 300,000 miles so far runs like a champ. I hate these new vehicles so many sensors and features that don't need to be on there to make a vehicle start up and drive. Vehicle manufacturers are making the newer vehicles too complicated for the average person the work on it so they hope you bring your vehicle to be service at their dealership. Thats is their goal. Get yourselves a dependable diesel truck 4x4 prefered. These new all electric vehicles are going to take a while before you can travel across the country. You can't even travel across Califonia not enough power recharge stations. Have a good day everyone.

  • When he said i don't have to shut it off at the drive threw i laughed. I love 7.3s I right now own a low miles f350 4door duelly has the lariat package. Clean as new inside and out. Got it for a steel at 15 thousand. And yes I cut it off in the drive threw. Several times bc when im close to the order speaker I dont want to disturb the person ordering or at the window paying. Dont want to be the ass hole with the loud truck.

  • I bought an F250, XLT, 7.3 in 1997. In 2020 it has 117K miles on it, and never has had any corrective maintenance required. Just normal servicing. The 7.3 was most reliable diesel ever produced that I know of. think the International 7.3 dump truck engine was the best idea Ford ever had.

  • I love how both of them admit that the $80,000 new truck is a 125,000-150,000 miles truck and they both seem ok with that, like it's acceptable. That's one of the biggest problems with new vehicles today. Manufacturers are building crap with gadgets instead of building longevity... because people are stupid enough to buy them. People are dumb enough to believe a $500-$1000+/mo vehicle payment is a never ending, modern fact of life. Oooooof.

  • The worst thing I did was trade in my 7.3 f250 for a 07 6.0 that thing spent more time in the shop then the road then I got a 6.4 that thing would break down on the road at least the 6.0 made it back to the shop then I got a 2013 6.7 and that truck never brakes down but the 2017 power stroke has a lot of electronic issues so I got a L5P duramax and that truck is a beast but I still have my 2013 6.7 it’s a grate running truck hands down

I've owned a couple of them so yeah I know... Worst thing about the new ones are EGR, DPF, and DEF systems. But other than deleting, Cummins and Duramax all have the same crap for emissions..

    • @American Truck Nation As you know, International is one of the largest engine builders in the country. 6.0 has issues without a doubt. In the scheme of things, it's a cheap fix. My point is two fold: Buying a new diesel today, if you plan on keeping, it will be cost prohibitive. 150k is what is anticipate to bvv e the death sentence as the cost to maintain and repair the emissions will be too costly. 6.0, now 130k under my watch is flawless. Howrver, you have to permanent fix the inherent problems. Buy a 6.0 today for 15k, throw 3500 bucks into it, you have a relatively inexpensive truck that will go 1M miles. You can chip these motors without head studs, not past 28-30 psi boost. Truck today throw on all this tech glitz and have substantially jacked the prices up. 50k/60kfor a gas truck? Not for me. 71k loaded desiel King Ranch? Smoking crack if you ask me. I have 190k on the clock.

  • the 6.7 is easily the best powerstroke to come out. when they are deleted they are miles better than the 7.3, the 6.0 and 6.4 are just complete shit engines. the 7.3 is a legendary tank but horribly slow and horrible fuel consumption. the 7.3 makes 450 torque while the 6.7 makes near 1000 torque. its not even close. i love the 7.3 but the 6.7 is god tier compared to a 7.3. Also these new 6.7s have already seen a million miles with no issues, also they are single turbo not twin..

I’ve since deleted it and the power Ford was hiding underneath that EGR is isnane. It’s literally a whole new pick up. Now my 7.3 I’ve since tuned it and upgraded turbo and straight piped and it’s safe to say that fucking thing will not die. Its incredible how much Ford put into the 7.3 early 2000’s. I’m pushing 350k miles and I wouldn’t hesitate to drive cross country with it. The 6.7 idk man you really have to keep an eye on it.

    Anthony SozaAnthony SozaPirms 2 Mēnešiem
  • Only one that’s not worth having is the 6.4. The rest will last for a long long time if maintained properly. 6.0 was a headache but can be made bullet proof and is one of my favorite powerstrokes.

  • We had a 1994 F-Superduty (450 cab and chassis) which had the 7.3L Powerstroke which was available mid model year to replace the non-DI engine. It blew the turbo a few times early ownership until we changed the rear end ratio to drop the revs. Retired it at 495k km as we out grew it and the reefer box wore out. Apart from a few oil drips it ran great considering how hard it was ran.
