Angry Broken Piston

Hey, I am new to this forum and I am on here to get all the help I can get. I Had a 2004 Excursion with a 6.0l in it 8 inches of lift and 37inch BFGs. I had nothing but issues with it over and over again. Typical stuff like 3 times for headgaskets once for new heads, new EGR cooler because it leaked and Hydrolocked my engine, a couple of new injectors and the last was a broken piston all within 28000 miles. Ford warrantied everything but the last one(broken piston) they say it is because of my off road exhaust and because they think I had a progrmmer on it. So I ended up having to pay for a new short block and labor roughly $8000. I have a law suit against Ford motor company for about 1yr now. I need to find as much dirt on this P.O.S of and engine as I can to prove that I am not at fault here. Any ideas? I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks,P

Yes, I did see the piston and it was broke right in half. I agree with you and feel that from it hydrolocking is what caused this piston to break. Ford just needs to suck it up and make there customers happy. Between my parents and I in the past 12 years we have bought more than $500,000 worth of Ford vehichles and it is sad that they can treat loyal customers like this.

To me, they would have to prove in court that your exhaust, and supposed programmer were the direct cause, of the failed piston. No, exhaust can't hurt anything in the engine, maybe if you went to 1" turbo back or something LOL.

Sorry to hear that you have had so many problems with your truck.

Well we all know that the exhaust only help reliability because you create less heat on moving engine parts. They will come up with anything just so dont have to pay. Its a big corporation and they are just trying to scare me from going any futher with this.

keep on Ford about this. someone that i work with also had an 04 6.0. he had so many problems with it, that he took Ford to court and got his money back. he is now a Dodge owner!!!

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
