6.0 problem. go figure

ok so dad has this 06 6.0 and its a farm truck. 4 door sb and its hooked to a 28' flatbed or a cattle trailer (both goosenecks) 75% of the time. he was gonna take my sister to school the other day and it was pretty cold and so he let it run for like 20 mins b4 he left. went about 5-6 miles down the road and it beeped and said check guages and he looks and there was now no oil pressure. the motor made a squeel and the truck stopped and shut off and there was a puddle of oil under it. It still has a warranty on it so we towed it to the dealer and they took it all apart and the oil pump is blown apart (like 4 diffferent pieces) and the timing cover is all cracked. Ford wont cover it due to "hard clutching" im not sure how a person can dump the clutch while driving down a road but they wont cover it. We were quoted like 3 grand to fix it and dad talked to sum guy from ford and they argued and wont send anyone to inspect it or anything because its not a manufacturers defect. WTF DO WE DO!!!!?????

Hard clutching? Sounds like BS to me. More like failure of an "internally lubricated part." I would go in there and raise Hell!

Wouldnt they have to prove it somehow being that they are denying a warranty claim?

Ill refrain from telling you to search for it yourself next time. Took me about 30 seconds on Ford - Cars, SUVs, Trucks & Crossovers | Ford Vehicles

Here ya go. https://www.flmowner.com/servlet/Con...rrantyInfoPage

Click on where it says warranty guide, looks like front page has phone numbers and page 7-9 has info on what is not covered under warranty. looks like you just have a PITA dealer

Relax, bud. While it is sometimes annoying and redundant, we don't beat people up for asking questions even if they have been asked (and answered) over and over again. We all started out somewhere learning about these things.

It is quite possible a roller lifter let go, spitting the needle bearings through to the crankcase, getting sucked through the oil pickup (which WILL pass through) and take out the oil pump like you describe, in the process. Were photos of the damage even taken? Although I haven't come across this particular issue myself YET, I have heard that damaged cam lobe(s)/lifter(s) on these engines will make a squeeling/sqeaking type noise like you describe. For $3000, it sounds like they are only quoting a repair to replace the engine front cover and possibly the oil cooler. The biggest million dollar question is WHAT let go to destroy the oil pump? The reason I say this, is because low pressure pump failures are relatively seldom. When they claim "dumping the clutch", I assume that this truck is equipped with a manual transmission which, even if the clutch were to be dumped, I would tend to believe the clutch assembly would grenade before the engine would, but that's just my opinion.

Sounds like a service mgr. has had a but chewing and is trying to get out of any more warranty work before the end of the year. I'd call the district mgr and work my way to the top. I've never heard of "hard clutching" as an issue, arent they all hydraulic clutches now anyway???? Even if you matted it and dumpped the clutch you would have driveline issues not oil pump problems.
