    We have a 2017 F450 dually. Just put a new long block in at 115,000. We are now down again with a locked up motor 6 months later at 180,000 miles. Anyone else experiencing this same problem. We had the same problem with our 2015. Replaced the short block 3 times in 1 year with that truck. We religiously keep a maintenance schedule on it, but still continue with the same issue.

    That is either the worst luck in the world or you are doing something because that ain't normal.

    Powerstrokehelp.com in Buford GA is great.

    I tried to use them a few months ago, however, and found they're so busy that it takes them days to return calls to their voice mail. When I did get a call back, it was from another local shop that they'd cleared, I assume, to do work as good as they'd do it. (United Diesel Repair, Flowery Branch GA) In my case, it was a 6.4L short block replacement in a 2010 F-350. I chose NOT to go with them because a highly recommended shop a few miles from me did the work as well for about the same price.
     
    Bakerman Thanks this.

    Something tells me with luck that bad it wouldn't matter what kind of truck it is.

    Something weird is going on for sure. I ran an F550 with the 6.7L. Grossed 18k lbs every day and I drove the absolute piss out of it. Aside from the odd CEL when it was -30 out I never had any real issues with it.
