Default High Mileage 6.7 Fords

There are a number of high mileage 6.7 Fords for sale....cheap.



240-265k miles on 2012 for 15-18k.



Thoughts?

Same here, I bought a 2013 with 197,000 and it was only because I was desperate and needed it.
I'm actually glad the POS screwed me over & the deal fell through.
I'm going to be patient and wait until I can save up enough to get something closer to 100,000.
I just bought a cheap gasser with a 454" for the winter, and hopefully can get what I really want before the end of the year for the added deductions.
If not, I will get one in Feb.

250,000 is just too much, I would be a nervous wreck every time I went out of town.

I am the same way, but may change jobs to a 14 mile commute one way so that would be OK.

I’d much rather have a well-maintained 200k highway truck than a 100k mall-crawler/commuter.

As stated, it all depends on how it was driven. Ours get used hard but the engines last forever because they aren't just idled around. The crappy thing is the seats and everything else is pretty used up by then because of the environment we use them in.

The DPF is designed to last 250k, injectors usually last 125-175k and they are junk.

If emission testing isn't a problem, count on deleting it and fresh FORD injectors, probably a few other things and you should be good.

I'm considering upgrading to a 6.7 truck my self, I figure I'd buy one high mileage ones with a hurt engine and fix it myself that way I know it's right and I'm getting cheap.

Then for me it has to be rust-free.

Another issue with Illinois, the 2013 was a frigging rust bucket.
The POS said it was a beautiful truck, when I showed up to drive it the entire utility body was a bashed up rust bucket!!!
I just bought a 2000 3500 and it's 10 times better condition and only 120,000 miles.

Once they get cancer they're done, best to buy from the south.

Is the DPF like another catalytic converter?


Injectors are on the outside of the engine...correct?

The DPF, it's about a 250lb missle. The "F" stands for filter, it collects all the soot, then it burns when the computer detects enough restriction.

So what could go wrong with that???

Most of the those failed CP4 pumps are misdiagnosed, usually the real problem is a failed injector, the injector dumps the fuel pressure.
