I pray for failure!

I have 7 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. At 6 years or 90,000 miles (whichever comes first) I pray the engine, transmission, front axle, and rear axle fail. BUT I am never this lucky!!!

Just rolled through 100,000 miles on my 6.2. First maintenance on engine other than oil and filters. 16 spark plugs for $80 plus labor. Also need drain and refill coolant, dex-cool.

Am super happy. Mobil 1 0w-30 oil ever 5000 miles. Lots of WOT towing at time 15 minutes at redline climbing mountains towing my 8000 lb trailer. Super pleased.

That's awesome Ed! I only put about 7,000 miles a year on mine, so that means I should have about 25 or so more years.

Sheesh, at my age, I just hope I live that long!

6.2L V8 feedback/problems

Hey Gents,

I have a 2011 with 65K on it. Absolutely love the truck! second time owner on this one. I believe it was used prior as a plow truck. Plow wasn't on it when I bought it. Right now it's in the shop for exhaust manifolds. Driver side cracked near firewall. Had plugs put in it as well , while dissembled. No issues with oil consumption, but had the oil, and tranny dipstick holders replaced as well. both were heavily corroded and notice when doing the manifolds. Tranny stick was just beginning to leak. not sure if the manifold issue is the infamous issue Ford had with the Triton engines. Always been a Ford fan This is my 12th Ford. Had the V10 before that, but kept popping plugs.

There is an oldie here that goes on for quite a while where a guy reports engine out on a road trip and a dealer determines the cause is a shattered lifter.


Which the 6.2 has none.

Yea then go get my old gmc its probably rotted in half by now somewhere--just changed the oil on my 2015 CCLB 6.2 today has a whopping 16,761 on it now! It only let me go 4,101 before the CHANGE OIL NOW came up on the LCD productivity screen-i think thats what its called i ordered it that way.It must have known most of those miles were towing somehow. I like your shirt tommy

Where's the value in dragging up an old thread?


Lifters? Pushrods? What's that got to do with a 6.2L? Clearly idiots talking out their posterior ...
