While the Ford 3.0 Power Stroke diesel engine is new and has no major issues, there are some common equipment issues such as:
  • Loose screws in the EGR by-pass valve flap
  • Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) clogging and/or overheating
  • Diesel particular filters (DPF) clogging
  • Exhaust gas temperature {EGT) sensor failure
The Ford F150 3.0 Power Stroke diesel engine may have equipment issues but none of them are substantial.
