Say, I have been hearing about problems with the new Ford 6.0L Powerstroke diesel. My question is this: I know many people on this forum have the new Powerstroke, have any of you had problems????

Some of the problems I have heard are:
...Turbo leaking oil
...When starting engine cold shakes bad
...Poor throttle responce on quick accelerations
...EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculator) problems.

Don't misunderstand me, I love my Ford (it is a 7.3L powerstroke). But where I work I have been hearing a lot from the dealers about problems, one of the larger Ford dealers near us even said at one point he had 5 new 6.0L Powerstrokes sitting on the lot waiting to be repaired, but Ford Co didn't know what was wrong or how to fix them yet, and told the dealer to keep them until they knew what the deal was....

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone on the forum had problems and if the dealer was able to fix them in a timely manner.... I have a number of people ask me what I think about the 6.0L and I like to be able to give a somewhat realistic answer....

Anyway, just wondering. Thanks for any input anyone is willing to give.
