We are having problems with our truck, to say the least. Had we known this motor was prone to problems we wouldn't have bought this truck. We bought it used Nov 2009, had 110K miles. In March 2010 the EGR cooler, pistons and other parts to the tune of $8500. In August the foot valve and another part had to be replaced. In Nov 2010, last week, we were riding along and felt a slight jerk every now and then, we thought possibly the transmission. We stopped and checked everything. All fluids were ok. Then, the truck wouldn't start. We had the truck towed to the dealer. Now our lower end of the motor is gone. The oil filter was melted. We still owe $7800 for payoff on the truck. We can't see sinking another $8,000 to have the truck fixed. And of course our extended warranty has run out. This truck only has 174K miles on it. If we fix it again for $8000 we will have spent over $16K in repairs in 1 year. This is crazy. I will be writing to Ford about this problem, but I'm sure they have already heard it before. Any ideas/suggestions or anyone else had similar problems? Thanks, Theresa

Sorry to hear about your engine problems but writing Ford will do nothing unless you have records showing where a Ford dealer has done the service work on this truck. The oil filter melted would tell me you had oil cooler problems which should have been replaced when the egr cooler and piston was fixed. Why are they telling you the lower end of the motor is gone??? I am not sure I would not get a second opinion...........

All of our work was done at Rountree Ford Dealer in Shreveport and we have all of our service records. The warranty wouldn't let them replace some parts and the owner even got involved. They didn't want to replace the EGR cooler as they said it wasn't an internal part. Huh? The owner got involved and threatened them that if they didn't warranty the work then he would never accept another vehicle under their warranty. He also ran the warranty inspector out of his shop and told him he was never allowed back in his shop. They finally agreed to warranty the EGR cooler and some other work, but one of the main parts they wouldn't warranty. I can't think of the part and my husband is asleep, but that is the part that went out this time causing the bottom end of the motor to burn up. Thanks for your reply.

I'm sorry, it wasn't the pistons that were replaced. They replaced all 8 injectors, high pressure oil pump, EGR cooler, and EGR valve. Verified by m husband this morning. lol

Thanks,
Theresa

Well first off if they charged 8-k for that work you need to find another dealer and FAST......

Second, if they replaced the HPOP and did not replace the oil cooler that is your problem. Anytime the HPOP is replaced the cooler need to be either cleaned and inspected or replaced. My opinion it should have been replaced since you had to replace all of the injectors.

The warranty will try not to cover the coolers by calling them "wearable items". But the dealer should have been smart enough to at least give you the option to buy any extra parts that maybe needed when that job was done. Which would include, egr cooler, egr, injectors and seals, oil cooler, HPOP and seals and inspect all cooler lines along with a fresh oil change then reflash the injector module.

Did they tell you why you needed injectors to being with? These truck are not bad on injectors and a 110-k miles is nothing for these trucks. The oil thing that kills injectors on these is lack of oil changes and or using the wrong type of oil. If this is the case from the original owner that is why you had warranty problems to start with.

Back to the original post, 99% of extended warranties are worthless and will only cover MINIMAL ITEMS! I was going to get oone for my Dodge in 07 and talked with the service manager about it and he told me that I would be wasting money. Now after hearing stories about them I have to agree with him.

We had a similar problem with one of our inventory trucks. We took it to the dealer and had them fix it. What was curious was they could never tell us the exact cause of it.
