Should ford have fixed this??

I had my injectors replaced at the dealership...all 8. Now that I got the truck back it has trouble starting when hot, so I took it back to the dealership and they told me that the standpipes were leaking or something like that....(i'm assuming the seals at the ends of em?) Should the dealership have replaced those when they put it back together while doing the injectors??
Thanks!

If it were me doing that job, I would have definitely replaced them. The HP oil rail has to come off to remove the injectors

Stand pipes (as are dummy plugs) are known for leaking, although I wouldn't expect the tech to just replace them if you didn't have a concern. If it wasn't doing it before, it is likely they were on the verge of leaking prior to the work.

The awnser is YES!!!! They should at least give the customer the option. Even if you had to pay for the parts it would have been worth it to do it while the injectors were being replaced. The other thing is that the standpipes have to be removed to do injectors. Very possible that the damage was done when they were removed and reinstalled. Guess it could just be coincidence.... ALWAYS replace standpipes and dummy plugs while valve covers are off!

i always replace stand pipes when the rail comes off. Sometimes you may tear the D rings on them upon removal, sometimes theyre bagged out and about to leave a customer on the side of the road.
