when warm yes....but when cold and idling at 12-1400rpms with fan going....it has a howl to it. The 6.4 is strange with fan coming on ALL the time, obviosly something to do with emissions and keeping the motor cool. And yes, the diesel STINKS coming out the other end. We have old house so the smell creeps in when I park close to the house and drives my wife CRAZY.

haha its not the fan it goes into regeneration that is the exhaust it is wide open cleaning the exhaust filter that is why it is so loud, that is not the clutch fan.

Next time it does it look at the information bar it will say cleaning exhaust filter. I just bought another 6.4 . I have my 2008 F-550 and now I have a 2010 F-350. Needed a new truck and didn't want to be the test dummy for the 2011.

The 6.0 is the last of the engines you can work on. Sure it may need head studs and eliminate the emmissions but its still mechanic friendly.

The new 6.7 will be a little scary.

In todays market its not even worth buying a new diesel truck they get poor fuel economy and cost 2 arms and a leg to fix.

The whole urea thing on the 6.7 is something I don't want to deal with. I buy new trucks after one being in service for 5 years for tax purposes and with having the the warrenty and not knowing if it had been abused or not is another reason. I hate taking other peoples problems.

NEUSWEDE, it is the fan, I clearly see the regenerative feature and it sure is louder when driving to clean the muffler filter. I am talking when it is parked after starting and idling to warm up. DEFINETLY the fan,....when real cold it builds from an idle to a slow howl until warm.

Excavation contractors do lease trucks for 4 years and it is for a tax write off but your looking at 1000-1200 a month truck payment. A XLT F-350 4x4 diesel is close to 70 grand with tax. The new 6.7 truck I wouldn't be surprised to see them at 80 grand with tax.

You can barely buy a used truck for 31,000.
