Is this the start of 6.4 problems?????

I have 2550 on my 6.4 and on the way home today the engine light came on and tried restarting to reset and its still on.
Got home and checked under the hood and the only thing I could find was coolant all over the left side of the engine like the 6.0 did.What the he??,I can't stand to go threw a battle with FORD again like I did with my 05.
Any 6.4 owners look under the hood and see if your coolant is leaking out like mine did - Its just like the 6.0 did and coming out of the cap.

Someone on another forum posted the same thing. Dealer thought the coolant level was a little high. They drained some coolant and replaced the cap. He stated that it hadn't leaked since.

I checked all the fluid levels when I picked it up and they where all where they should be.I think it has something to due with the cap and pressure blow off rate. My 6.0 did the same thing and they lowered the height level on a recall with a new cold level sticker.You would think they would have figured that out since the 6.0 did it and it did it on my 03 and 05.
Or maybe I should figure it out and give up on the power stroke.
I guess what I'm saying is that if this truck gives me any b.s. problems like the other two I'am done with Ford and hopefully Toyota will due up a diesel.
And for all you who will say its mechincal and you'll have problems - own a couple trucks like I do and spend all the time and energy like I did and see if you don't feel like driving it to Michigan and driving it wright threw the front doors of FORD and onto Bills lap!!!!!!

They bought back by 05 due to two trannys,bad paint,they detunned it on a recall and could only build 21 pounds of boost.

I also found this morning that The truck will only build about 22 pounds of boost but it still runs and not making any weird noises.I will let you all know whats up after I go see Randy.

hmmmmmmmm

my f-150 5.4 does this when I tow...no one can fig it out...only when tow...replaced the cap lowered the coolant to low line....but still did when i tow...only when i tow...i just do not add any coolant to it anymore and now i got the new towmonster so the f-150 will retire from towing. some ideas were; coolant to thick(60/40), altitude supposedly has something to do with expansion and when oyu strain the motor with a hard downshift etc the pressure builds beyond the caps ability to hold it...just some thoughts on this. if ford made a design mistake i guess we will all find out eventually.
