If you have a 6.0L Ford Powerstroke, we’re sure you have come across some of the problems this troublesome engine has since its release in 2002.

Ford Powerstroke 2003 to 2004 medium and heavy duty pickups have been the real issue for Ford and has cost them money in abnormally volume of warranty repairs as well as Ford’s “Built Ford Tough” image.

As reported by Autoweek, Ford has been sued 58 times over 6.0L engine and within the first nine months of the 2005 warranty, cost at the company have raised by $500 million.

Although the 6.0L Powerstroke has been partially redesigned by its supplier, International Truck and Engine Corp., some technicians are still struggling with this complex unit.

The newer Ford Powerstrokes, such as the 6.4L Super-Duty pickups, have a much better record than those of the 6.0L 2003 and 2004 model engines.
