I purchased the vehicle above in the fall of 2010. Two months later, it was in the shop with fuel injector problems, and as luck would have it, the warranty on the vehicle just expired the month before. Needless to say, Ford didn't show any sympathy. Now, nearly a year later, the vehicle died on the side of the road. The cause? You guessed it: high pressure oil pump failure. So I paid $2,500 for my local dealership to fix it over the better part of a holiday weekend. Three days later, towing a Uhaul car trailer on a 400 mile trip, the truck shuts down again at 5:30 a.m. (while I was traveling 65 mph). I limp to the shoulder of the road, call for a tow, and a different Ford dealer says it's the same problem--high pressure oil pump--and dealer #1 didn't fix it correctly. To make things even more difficult, neither dealer agreed that i shouldn't have to pay for the same repair again. Instead, they pointed the finger at one another and said "take it up with them". Very, very discouraging. After spending a full day in the waiting area, the dealer #2 said they fixed it and gave me their guarantee it wouldn't happen again. 24 hours later, while towing a car on the trailer and merging off the highway, the vehicle dies AGAIN! I tow it back to Dealer #1, and yeah, you guessed it, high pressure oil pump failed again--the third time in 8 days!! You think the dealership would give me any of my $$ back? Think again. I'm a husband and father of two infant boys. Can you imagine what would happen if i broke down in the middle of nowhere? Ford won't hear it. In fact, after the 3rd repair on the oil pump, dealer #2 called me and said "we don't want to give you any money back yet because we don't believe dealer #1 fixed it for good. . . what we'd like you to do is put the truck through the ringer and see if you can break it again." Are you freaking kidding me?!?! What happens if the truck breaks again and sends me into another car? What if someone is injured/killed? You think ford will cover that? Ford service techs don't even have faith in the vehicle i'm driving!! What am i supposed to do? THANK GOD I RECORDED EVERY PHONE CALL AND CONVERSATION BETWEEN MYSELF AND THE FORD TECHS. Those micro recorders are super-handy. . . It's been 7 days and i'm still furious. So, first, i'm going to see what Dodge has to offer these days. Second, I'll start crying foul on every website I can find. Then i'll write to the BBB, the attorney general, and anyone else. Then i'll join one of these class-action lawsuits. With a story like this, and the recordings to back it up, Ford better give me my $$ back or i'll just get louder. What they're doing is just not right.

driving to the river about 70 miles an hr.gave it a little gas to pass a car and it just shut off...tried to start wouldnt start.ended up killing the batteries.tow to shop he says its the high pressure oil pump gonna cost me about 1800 dollars to fix it.he has had it for two weeks trying to get the part.finally got it im possibly picking it up today...i have had nothing but trouble with this truck..its been to the dealer 3 different times for injectors and glow plugs,and now this.after the second time at the dealer i took it in because it was running funny hard to start.they kept it for a couple days and told me they couldnt find anything wrong with it..my warranty was about up.sure enough a month later it got worse. ended up being 5 injectors a glow plug and some dummy plugs...my warranty was past and they said they couldnt do anything for me.i called ford and they put 500 dallars towards the bill..it still cost me 1000 out of pocket...this yr i have spent about 4500 dollars on a 45000 dollar truck that wont stay running longer than 4 months.I WILL NEVER BUY A FORD AGAIN. im done

I had some engine surge at idle on a Thursday. Drove the truck all weekend and had no problems, Engine light came on Sunday. Went to autozone had the code pulled and it said EGR flow insufficient. Monday the truck was revving high at startup, then no start. it would turn over all day long just not fire up. Took it to ford for diagnosis and they said High Pressure Oil Pump, IPR, ICP, new bracket for the Oil Pump because ford redesigned it $100, There was a leak in a downtube?, I had just replaced the EGR based on the Autozone code $250, anyway all total $2,200 in parts.

Driving along at 55 mph truck shuts down as wrench appears on screen. towed truck to Keeter Ford in shelby n.c. I was told the high pressure oil pump failed . Their response to my question about warranty was Ford won't cover this due to water in the fuel . This truck has service records from the day i bought it . I have ruined more clothes climbing under this truck to drain the water separator than i care to remember. The water separator on newer trucks are larger and therefor require less drainage. This is a lesson Ford has learned at the cost to most owners. My truck has been serviced and Ford knows it has a problem .Therefore anyone with information on class action lawsuits please don't hesitate to post it. This truck had the liner come out of the fuel tank in less than 1 1/2 years . This was not covered by warranty either so what the Hell is.This time around the dealer said it would cost around $8,100 to repair. How much does Ford think i can spend on a truck that will only have the same problem again? When did Ford decide that service was not part of the sale? You pay extra for the diesel engine, you pay more for service, you pay more for fuel,and you expect good service. this is not unreasonable unless you are Ford motor company. Don't expect your experience to be much different because this is my third super duty and they have all been junk. Unless Ford steps up this will be my last. Below is a list of problems I've had 12 injectors,1 erg , head gaskets ,3 rear axle seals , fuel tank liner, 2 low pressure oil pumps, 2 high pressure oil pumps, thousands of dollars in towing bills and down time due to repairs. sure I'm pissed off.

mine is a 2015 model . No warning lights or indications. Engine just got harder and harder to start, especially once the engine was hot. After 3 days in the shop the dealer found metal shavings in the fuel rails. I'm lucky, the dealer is covering under warranty, but not sure if I will keep the truck or not. Seems to be lubrication problems, but Ford doesn't allow additives without voiding the warranty.

WE NEED A NEW ENGINE - STILL UNDER WARRANTY - BUT FORD WILL NOT TAKE CARE OF IT!!! With Components we are looking at 19,000.00 repair and FORD has turned their back on us "stating rust in the fuel tank", we have a fleet of Diesel Engines, we get our fuel at the same station and have NO PROBLEMS with other vehicles.
