2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty Problems

Delamination of Diesel Fuel Tank

Delamination of the diesel fuel tank can occur resulting in a loss of power due to debris clogging the fuel filters. In some cases the fuel injection pump and/or fuel injectors have also been damaged. Ford has issued a service bulletin (#19728) addressing this concern. This issue can affect all diesel F-350, F-450, F-550, F-650, and F-750 Super Duty models.

Smoke From Tail Pipe Due to Failed EGR Valve

The cooler for the EGR valve can leak coolant internally, which causes white smoke to come from the tail pipe. Hot exhaust gases are cooled by the EGR cooler before being circled back into the engine.

High Pressure Oil Pump May Fail and Cause "No Start" Condition

The high pressure diesel fuel injection pump may fail, resulting in a "no start" condition.

Below -26 degrees Celsius no heat unless you keep your RPM over 2500 even at a red light. Brakes never touched them, I've changed the marker light's once that's it. T...
This has been one of the very best trucks I have ever owned. Very strong and very reliable. Been a very easy keeper.
