Are there add'l problems with the 6.4?

Only thing I heard about was the flamethrower which was easily fixed with a reflash, but I just found this:

Latest Technical Information

Some F-Super Duty vehicles equipped with the 6.4L diesel may exhibit one or more of the following concerns: lacks power, leaks oil, fuel or coolant from the tail pipe, abnormal tailpipe sediment, white smoke or ash, exhaust smell, knock or rattle, elevated idle, surge, crankcase oil level over-full, MIL On, DTC's P0087, P2291, P0263-P0284, P0300-P0308, P1336, P132B, P2262, P2263, P244C or P244D. If you are experiancing any of these concerns, then take it to your dealer and have them refer to TSB # 07-8-9

Re: Are there add'l problems with the 6.4?

I can't say about the Ford specific version of that engine, however the MaxxForce engines have had some EGR cooler failures.

So far these engines have been hold up much better than the VT365's did. We are still dealing with some aftertreatment issues, however those are rapidly being sorted out. Regardless of the name on the grill the aftertreatment devices are going to be problematic in pickups, especially those that are used to drive to 7-11 at the end of the block or those that are over-fueled.

It's still too early to tell yet, but I'm happy with our MaxxForce 7's so far. Too bad were stuck with 7500K dollar mufflers But out of all the MF7's we have so far NO head gasket issues or bent valves.

Re: Are there add'l problems with the 6.4?

Had to replace a front crank seal, processor in antoher, and now have the cab off one fixing the poor wire routing on the high press pump that chaffed and knocked out the vpower. Somebody should get fired for that..............
