If I was in the market for new a ford 3/4 - 1 ton truck, diesel is not the way to go right now and while the 6.2 may have issues they are not adding emissions stuff to gas motors left and right like they are on diesels. As far as the 5.4 goes it is a little under powered in a 4 door f250 and the v 10 isn't much better imo.

btw way good luck with the truck beard. breaking one thing while fixing something else always sucks.

Send it to elite haha. Sucks all the trouble you have been through zach. But I'm sure once it is up and running it will be a good reliable truck. Just like a diesel should be and will be.

Cummins?? A DT360, or 466 would make you king of Ranger engine swaps, and Super Duty swaps . . .

Glad to see you making progress, if I had to try and disect a 6.4L I'd be sitting on the floor pulling my hair out.

i know many have read it before, but the 5.4l and v10 super dutys at my work have much less problems than the 2010 f450 we have

its running again! drove it 20 miles and gave it a bath. Nothing appeared to be leaking or a issue. I put it back in the shop to see if it would drip or leak any... We shall see.

I am still pretty sure it hates me. It wouldnt start this morning. It had more air in the fuel system. I may not have something right but it seems to run fine after I bleed the system yet again.

Problems still exist! So frustrating.

Now its having fuel issues. I cant seem to get all the air out. If it sits for too long more air gets in and it wont start. After I bleed it then it starts and runs fine. Its either a sensor issue, seal issue or HPFP.

I think I will start walking to work, its cheaper, good workout, and reliable.

im wondering if you have a bad check valve leaking back not holding fuel pressure in the system. it may not be air in the system, just fuel needing to be pressurized and cranking the engine is not enough. i see this daily on the transports i work on. i have to constantly hand prime the fuel systems on freightliners
