6.0 Oil pump/timing cover exploded

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi all on my way to work yesterday my truck left me on the side of the road for the first time. It is a 2005 F350 6.0L 6 spd 4x4 crew cab with 32,727 miles. I drive this truck like a car never operated at even close to max gvw. I change the oil and filter every 7500 miles with rotella t 15w40w and a purolator oil filter.The engine was taken apart today and Ford was notified waiting on there response. Service manager asked questions about last oil change and when. Manager stated there was no shavings in oil pan and that oil pump blew apart clean.Should I except them patching this engine or should I demand a new one all replies greatly appreciated.

I would think about suggesting they change the engine as you don't trust that flushing the oil system would be sufficent. Their almost has to be metal went some where and if none was int the pan it went up streak to the hpop ;oil galleries; injector valves etc. The filter may not have caught it all.
If I was the service maanager I wouldn't want to risk doing 2 warrenty repairs in a row if shaveings got by and into the high pressure system.

Just my thinking tho.

The problem with this type of situation is, it's NOT the dealer's call on what repair to proceed with. It is FoMoCo's call. I am almost certain the servicing tech would've rather long blocked it instead "band-aiding" it. In high dollar repairs, the tech's (and the dealer's) hands are tied when it comes down to whether or not an engine replacement is authorized.

like m-chan said the tech has to get prior approval for engine replacement, so at that point it is in ford's hands.
