2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty

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.

A coolant leak from the radiator can be caused by a defective thermostat bypass. This can cause pressure spikes in the cooling system, which leads to radiator failure. The thermostat assembly and radiator should be replaced.

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

The welded lift blocks may compress due to over tightening of the u-bolts or excess vehicle payloads, reducing the clamping force of the u-bolts. This could result in shifting and damage to the rear axle and drive shaft. Truxx will replace the affected lift blocks with non-welded aluminum or cast iron blocks to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on April 16, 2008. The Truxxx recall number is 08-01BLK.

Continental Tire has recalled original equipment tires on 2005 Ford F150 and 2006 Ford F150, F250, and F350 trucks. These tires do not meet federal standards as required for premature wear.
