The only thing I can think of is to check www.carsurvey.org to see if anyone else there has reported this problem. I certainly have not heard of this being a problem.

When i was getting the 6.0 F250 serviced they had another 2007 F250 in there that was already on its 3rd engine. I gave up and traded it in for a 08 F150 Limited. Even trade an walked away from potential disaster. Here is some more info. According to several of the 150-plus complaints posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some trucks never even made it home from the dealership before the fuel injectors or turbocharger failed. The engine also has been plagued with leaky fuel injectors, oil leaks, broken turbochargers, wiring harness troubles, faulty sensors, defective exhaust gas recirculation valves and bad computers. Since the engine debuted three years ago, Ford has issued at least 77 technical service bulletins. That is far above average, even for a new engine. These bulletins tell mechanics how to diagnose and fix various problems. By comparison, there have been eight service bulletins for GM's Duramax diesel V-8 and none for the diesel engine in the Dodge Ram truck. Both engines debuted at about the same time as the Power Stroke.
