Has anybody else had this issue I am 2,900 miles out of warranty and this bill hurts. There is very little idle time on the truck.

6.7 what?
Driving style has caused a lot of issues.
Drive it like you stoled it. EB on all the time, dont lug the motor.

Never heard of this on the 6.7. That really stinks.

How many miles are on the truck? If you don't mind me asking, what is the bill going to run?

It is a FORD and this is a known issue on Fords that the EGR can plug.

Now for the instructions on the original 6.7L engine (CUMMINS) you are to use the EB 100% of the time to prevent the variable geometry turbo charger sliding vane from soot build up and preventing the sliding vane from actuating.
The only time you are to turn the brake off is when the road surface are slick with rain/snow or ice. In these conditions you could have controllability issues.
I have 100,000 miles on my truck and the EB has been on for 98% of the time. I still have the original turbo charger on the truck, and hope to get another 100,000 miles before replacement.

I have the Ford 6.0 which is the king of EGR killers. My diesel mechanic told me to make sure I don't crank the engine until the glow plugs are heated up in the first 10 seconds or so, blow it out on the highway once a week from 30 to 70 MPH, (NOT while you're towing, though), change the fuel filters every other oil change, don't use that 15% bio diesel such as what Wal Mart's Murphy sells, use no more than 5% bio diesel, plug in the crankcase heater every night. I have 116,000 on mine and it's doing well.

Can you post your actual miles and hours please?

Excessive idle, lugging it, not running upto full operating temp, and poor fuel quality, are all contributors. So if you get fuel once a month and just run down to the convenience store once in awhile you may suffer. These trucks are meant to be worked. The Ford recommended additives can help.

I have the 6.0 and had to have the oil cooler replaced and egr delete done last summer. $2700.00! Didn't know the 6.7 had that problem. I was actually considering moving up to the 6.7. I guess I'll stick with what I have. Sorry you have this problem. Have you checked for any service bulletins or recalls?

Oh, ya,,,,,I forgot to mention that I haven't put a drop of diesel in my truck without Lucas fuel treatment. 3 OZ per 10 gallons of diesel. Very important!!
