Im not a devote loyalst to any of the brands but i spend a lot of time around the horse / rodeo and 90 percent of the trucks are dodge or ford . These people travel for a living towing big horse trailers that are loaded . I will not be buying another ford for a while just out of spite though . Stupid 6.4!! LolI know some guys in our Glamis Group had this issue with their Powerstrokes.
They all Lemon Lawed their trucks.
Forced Regens lead to cylinder wall glazing that leads to engine failure I'm told.
Dunno,, just what I glean from the forums from people that claim they experienced it.
I know nothing about it.
Evidently Ford figured it out and this is behind them.
I was told that with the GMC some systems are just defective. Even some replacement parts are defective. Not sure if I buy into that. That could be a carrot on a stick excuse.
May be a design problem plus lack of testing under load.
The GMC 3500 DRW is the perfect tow vehicle for our weight class TH.
Didn't need to bag it, tons of power when it runs right, fucking fun to drive. Nice truck.
Yeah, when it runs right.
My only advice for people going through this is never tell the service writer what your intentions are or what you are thinking or they go into cover-thy-ass defense mode. Leave it all up to them for past discovery and diagnosis.
Keep a cool head and use the system to get the truck replaced or your money back.
Right now we'll wait for the 2021 GMC 3500 DRW and the Ford F450 then make our move. The Ram is in there too, we just don't have a decent Ram dealer around here.
Truck rags are reporting new axles and other design features, plus no more jackass graphics nor ridiculous giant Blue Oval emblems for the 2021 F450 that will be worth checking out. That's for areas of the country where people put their first name on the truck door and their wife's name on the passenger side door. New Jersey south through the sun belt. Argyle sox with sandals culture.
Wife doesn't want to go through this again either and wants to go cautiously with our next purchase.
One more diesel,, then we'll have to go gas if this continues.
