anyone have this problem with their 6.4 diesel?

I just picked up my new 08 on tuesday, and I only have 200 miles on it. On Saturday I was parked in my driveway and the truck started to idle up after running for 4-5 hours. Once I put the truck in drive it started to blow blue and white smoke out the exhaust. It smelled like burning diesel fuel. I contacted the dealership and they have no clue what the problem is. They said there is a recall on all 08's 6.4 engines but didn't have the computer disk to fix the recall. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Sounds like it went into regen mode.

Shouldn't be blowing smoke during regen. Purpose of DPF is to clean the exhaust. I think Ford has seriously misprogrammed something in their regen mode, causing excessive heat, smoke, fire.

Does anyone know who is responsible for the after treatment system, Ford or IH? Duke, might be a good thread.

I would agree with Duke, but you may be one of the few that are due for that recall on the flame issue. I would assume that Ford would be the resposible party on the DPF system. Ford would have to be the one to design it to meet thier truck configurations.

There should not be excessive smoke on a Regen. Some white smoke but not much. I have only seen one go into Regen but it was not like what you described. Take the truck in tomorrow to the dealer is my advice.

If you let it idle for 4-5 hours

, ANYTHING is possible.

One of the things the consumers WILL learn about the 2007 up emissions diesels, is that if you don't NEED a diesel (for work), you should not get one.

These engines (CAT, Cummins, International, Isuzu (GM)) are NOT intended to idle, AT ALL.

We posted a picture here a few months back of an IH regen system on an IH truck. It was made bu FUJI Heavy Industries.

Sorry, but I'm not sure if that's who Ford uses. Maybe one of our new 6.4L owners can do us a solid and see if there's a manufacturer name on the regen system.

I know that Ford is responsible to the after-treatment system, and International is not.

That is not to say they do not use some of the same or similar components, even some from the same vendor.

As far as Ambulances, you cannot get the 6.4L PSD in a Van/commercial cut-away with Ambulance prep, so there is no problem.
