Could not keep coolant in engine while pressurized, so I drove with the cap loose till I could get it to Ford. They replaced the Radiator and coolant. Then my EGR valve went. Not covered by my extended warranty, so they wanted $995.00 to replace, I purchased online for $167 motorcraft part. Put in myself. Stilll, would not run right. Now the Diesel Particulate Filter and sensor are bad. 82,000 miles. Chevrolet here I come, or Dodge. Ford Sucks.
