head stud and warranty

took my 06 into dealership, they said I need head gaskets. I asked about installing head studs they said they will install them for extra labor but it will void my warranty. Does this sound right?

sounds about right, did they say how much extra the labor is and are you going to supply the studs?

Why extra labor? they would have to put the bolts back in?
I dont understand why it would void the warrantly, since they are better? But some dealers are finicky that way. I would call a few dealers. Some are mod friendly.

sounds about right, extra labor is charged because they are doing him a favor.

So they want fomoco to pay them for warranty work and then the customer to pay too.
Sounds great.

or the customer can get studs installed out of warranty at another shop..figure about 4100 bucks..so any way you look at it, 100 ded. and the cost of studs plus a bit extra labor..win win in my eyes..

But their are dealers that are customer friendly, that take very good care of customers. I see no isssue with buying the studs, but i dont hink they should make a big deal out of what they put in. Its definately better then footing the whole bill. But you do foot the bill when buying a car with warranty. Warranty work is built into the original price and also what you pay when you buy the 06 instead of an 01 or so?
I dont think the customer has a right to beat the dealer but the dealer should not try to beat the customer. Theres a tech close to me thats on this site. He would have no issue doing the studs. Its amazing what a sincere "i appreciate it" does with the tech.
Maybe, a nice 12 pack left in the truck for him.
Ford has to realize,, more so the dealer itself, that there are other dealers and other brands.

most of which is true, some will do it for free or a thanks or a case of beer, but some know the risk involved installing studs under warranty. A tech can be terminated for doing so. Keep that in mind.

In that case, then the dealer should not do it (install studs) under warranty ever.
They should have morals and ethics to fomoco. Personally, I feel the studs should be ok if you pay for them.
But no way, should(in my opinion), should it cost extra labor. If the risk is that big, they should not do it.
I hated dealing with this stuff. I bought two trucks out of warranty(cheaper cause of it)
Its on my dime. SO i get it done my way.
Not trying to argue, it just gets me on the warranty stuff. Muffler and tail pipe voids the warranty when gaskets fail, etc etc. We've all heard it.

you are correct, they shouldn't, but some don't care and do it anyways..I guess its a calculated risk. Its not worth it though..I can assure you.

Whats the difference between buying the tech a case or two of beer and paying him a couple extra hours labor, if in the long run he is saving you say $3400 bucks (just a number) That's just my thoughts..
