    Was driving truck and it killed has not started up never again . Bought the truck brand new put 10,000.00 dollars cash down I paid 34,000.00
    For the truck before financing. Milage was all interstate miles, still owe 1year on truck . Truck broke 4 years after I got it. I had a machinac come
    To my house and look at it and he said it was the high pressure oil pump and to fix it the part was 756.00 and the whole cab had to be removed to fix it and it will cost appx. 2500.00 to 3,000.00 to fix it . Iam sure this problem should be a recall from ford. There is no way I have paid this much for this truck to only last me 4 years. I feel ford should be responsible for this problem and should be on the recall list. If any one has had the same problem please let me know. Thanks my email is

    So much for Ford diesel motors being tough , reliable and going into the hundreds of thousands of miles. Just before pulling into my driveway coming home from work, the check gauge light came on. next morning, on my way to the dealership, the truck would turn over but, not start. The battery was still working strong. After being towed, the dealership diagnosed the problem as a failed High Pressure oil pump. I was told that this part should be covered under my power train warranty (by two dealerships.) Then, after each of the dealerships called the part into Ford I was told that this part was not covered(by my FORD power-train warranty that i purchased from Galpin Ford along with the truck.) After a battle with two dealerships and Ford headquarters, I ended up getting a discount from AV Ford, whom i must say should not be the ones do do this(although i appreciate it) I should've seen assistance from corporate who writes those bogus warranties and Galpin Ford who sold me this POS truck and warranty. The original repair charge was $3,100.00 reduced to $2,300.00. AV FORD did this on their own, neither Ford Headquarters or Galpin Ford would budge. I was told its not their problem,there's nothing i can do for you. My power train warranty has one (shaddy)disclusion; it states that all motor , transmission parts are covered by the warranty except carberation and fuel injection components. Ford tells me that the HPOP is a component of fuel injection.... even though the warranty covers oil pumps and all lubricated parts. How convenient that they don't cover the part that they know is bad. Ive looked all over the internet to find that this has been a problem part for Ford for some time now...they even mention it on Fords Web page. My family nor i will ever purchase another Ford...I'm done with them.

    My truck will turn over but will not start.Truck is not showing oil pressure while trying to start. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the FICM. THANKS FORD, but my truck still won't start. It's about to be towed back to the dealer. I shouldn't have traded me Dodge!

    The ford dealer replaced the esp sensor and then a few days later the truck just shut off while pulling into the middle of the intersection. No noise...just shut off. We towed it to the dealer and they said it was the high pressure pump. They replaced that then the dealer called and said when the pump let loose it destroyed the engine. Now they say the engine needs to be replaced for $12,000 dollars. Has heard of anything like this and is this even possible??? Thanks. Dean

    We have had issue with this truck in shop 12 times for major repairs since purchasing wiht 16,000 in 2008. In October 2013 we took in to a Ford deal as hard to start, would not throw a code, so now 4 months latter we took to a diesel speciality shop and they diagnosed the High Pressure Oil Pump to the tune of $3800.00. Thanks Ford! Seems that they should be a lawsuit to address this expensive problem with this motor.

    High pressure oil pump...recurring problem. Dealership stated ford was aware but would still charge me over 2500 to repair it. 2nd time was after only 11 months after the first. Mileage was 800 more than the "12000" warranty that came with the first repair! What a lemon engine.

    Driving down interstate, going up a hill, not enough power to make it. Engine light came on. I pulled over and let it set for a few minutes. Battery fine but would not start. After being stranded along a major interstate for over 2 hours the truck started again. I made it to a off ramp before it just died again. State police showed up a hour later and asked if I could get it across the interstate and to the motel parking lot. It started again and died just as I was going through a intersection. I was horrified. I am a female 120 lbs stuck 4 hours from home. Had my truck picked up and hauled 4 hours back home. I was first told the engine had blown up because I didn't put oil in. Sorry yes I did, Small Landscape business owner with a Union Operators license. I know oil! It has been almost 2 years since my truck has worked because I simply don't have 3,000 to put into a high pressure oil pump, considering I was not able to continue my work. Will be worked on next week. End of 2014. Ford needs to do a recall and reimburse us Loyal Customers they so appreciate????

    Truck started rough, but was drivable. Power become less and less, then it just quit. Spent $2,400 to get it fixed. they had to pull the turbo and a lot more to get access to it.
