The 6.2 was designed to be a low cost alternative for people who are not interested in the diesel engine option.

The good news is that even if a 6.2 engine goes "bad", it's going to be $7000 cheaper than replacing the fuel system on a diesel truck.

All engines tick, that's how you know it's running, and you have valves closing, which is a metal on metal sound, and also explosions powered by gasoline inside your engine, which makes the crankshaft turn and the wheels turn.

It's really an amazing thing, but ticking is normal for an internal combustion engine.

Unless your engine is using a quart of oil every 1500 miles, ticking is normal.

Lets have some actual useful threads on here, instead of my cousin's sister's mechanic told him that he heard of a guy who had a 6.2 tick...

It's an insect. Move along.

Get a cheap $2 mechanics stethoscope from harbor freight, great investment and will let you pinpoint where it's coming from. My ticking was the loud @ss injectors on these motors....

When you upload your pic to photobucket, go to your album and you'll see "IMG code". Copy that full URL and paste it into your post.

You'll see something like [ I M G ] your url [ / I M G] (no spaces though.) in your post. When you submit your post, the image will appear.

I brought my 2011 job 1 with 6.2l in to the dealer a while back for the ticking, noticed it on cold starts and while at temps, also especially noticable next to a wall of a building or in between buildings where sound reflects, I was told its the injectors and that its normal.

I don't like noisy gassers and really don't think they have to "tick."

My 6.2 is quieter than the wife's V 6 Toyota.

JUNE 11, 2013-- FORD 6.2 ENGINE FAILURE

My 2011 Ford F250 SuperDuty 6.2 engine failed, threw a rod and some valves. Even though under warranty, Ford and the dealership have only offered to "rebuild" the engine, indicating that even though one piston and cylinder were completely destroyed, they can only supply a "new block, one new head, one new piston and rod, etc.," since most of the cylinders still have good compression after their testing. This should be cause for a new engine, but Ford refuses. After nine Ford trucks, this is my last--they just sold a new Dodge or Chevy... AND, no extended warranty on the repairs...

JUNE 11, 2013--2011 FORD F250 SUPERDUTY FAILURE

I think we would have heard about any catastrophic failures by now, unless it's brand-new vehicles and they are being VERY WELL taken care of by Ford or the dealer
My 2011 F250 SuperDuty 6.2 engine threw a rod and some valves disintegrated and destroyed a piston and one cylinder on June 11, 2013. Ford and the dealership definitely are not handling this well--will only "rebuild" the engine since most of the remaining cylinders have adequate compression. This involved a new block, ONE new head, ONE new piston and rod, using all other parts of the failed engine. I am definitely not satisfied, but this is all Ford states they will do--not even adding more warranty, since this has happened under the powertrain warranty. 12,000 more miles and Ford says I'm on my own...this, even though it is my 9th Ford truck, is my last Ford of any kind. It is now June 21st and I have no truck as of yet.

I'd be having a fit, so sorry to hear this. Make sure you call customer service and get in contact with your regional customer service rep immidiately and voice your concerns, at the very least they will give you extended warranty.

6.2 ENGINE FAILURE ON JUNE 11, 2013

Again: engine threw a rod, valves discintigrated in one cylinder causing severe damage to the head and block--Ford instructed the dealership to rebuild with a new block, one new head, one new piston, some new valves, etc.
Rebuild was completed on June 25, 2013--the new block Ford supplied is defective, does not have proper pins or drillings--engine has to be removed again, another "new" block from Ford for yet another rebuild!
Have contacted Ford again with no positive results as of yet.

If that's true then they really dropped the ball on this one at the dealership, when rebuilding an engine and using new block, heads or whatever you always inspect all components to make sure they have all the right holes and pins before you reassemble.

Thread resurrection...

Over one year later and no additional posts or updates on this topic. Hopefully those are isolated incidents. Anyone else with any info that goes beyond rumor?
