Fr3 ford v10 engine

How many of you fr3rs have had a problem with your v10. We just got our fr3 back from the ford truck shop today. We had a cam follower roller fail and it wiped out the right cam shaft. Ford replaced all 30 of the followers under warranty. Thank goodness it was still under ford warranty. Ford was very good about the whole thing. They had to pay for the 150 mile tow plus the work. We have 35000 miles on our rig.

No problems with mine. It still only has 18,000 miles on it though. However, my tow vehicle I used for my travel trailer is a 2000 F250 with a V10. Only problem I ever had, other then tree rats chewing things, was an emissions sensor that was covered under warranty.

Only have 3000+ miles on mine. Barely past the first oil change. But I don't think mine was one of the chassis.

Ford V10

If you have one built between 2012 and 2016 you should open the link because it sounds like you only have until 7-31.

why would you only have until this year? I took ownership in '17, it has a 5 year power train warranty on it.

Ford v10

I believe the difference is that under the program mentioned you can take it in and have it done until that date even though it hasnít failed, after that date you wait until it fails if it does. Does that make sense. If you go for 5 years but low mileage it may fail then be out of warranty, this way you get it replaced now instead of waiting to see what happens. They cannot keep a program like that open forever.

All programs put out by manufacturers are different, but I have seen it done that way before in my 54 years in the car and truck repair business.

That's interesting, the link that IWANNACAMP posted does not mention F53 chassis which is what FR3 uses. I am going to seriously look into this. My unit is a 2017 FR3 but that will have a 2016 chassis.

Thanks for putting this out there. These Forums are awesome.
