4000 miles and no issues. Hot Shot rig so it gets worked. just put new oil. Mobil 1 extended performance full synthetic. Motor seems to like it. I put a lot of miles so I will keep yall informed of any problems. So far the 6.2 is Super! And I love the 6 speed tranny.

Well anything can happen of course...but hopefully we all made the right decision with the '11 and '12 6.2L.

When you take delivery...start a new thread...and post up some pics! We FTE folk love pics!

I'm nervous now after reading about these engine failures. Just bought a 2012 f-250 super. at about 200 miles i started to notice a tick from under the hood. sounded like the left side, but after lifting the hood, I couldn't tell where it was coming from. Been using E85 for about 2 tanks now. Called the dealer and talked to the head mech. He said the E85 wouldn't make it tick like that and I should bring it in for a listen.Hopefuly it's something they can tweek with out tearing the whole thing apart. And I gave up my Chevy for this??

Hmmmm maybe I should get AAA before I pickup my new truck and start driving 1500 miles to get home. That is a darn shame I should have to say that after paying $$$$ good hard money for it.

Mine has ticked ever since I got it, have 18,500 mile now. I did use 1/4 quart of Lucas 2 oil changes ago and it stopped the tick. I normally only here it at start up but have other times too. Will use the Lucas again next oil change and I am going to send a sample of my oil to Blackstone to see how everything is going. Next oil change is at 20,000 miles, so about another month and a half.

With respect, I think you are overreacting to a problem that doesn't exist! (And underestimating Ford's Roadside Assistance)

Like I said earlier - I punish mine although I take care of it - almost 50k and no problems. Drive it be confident - don't worry.
