Warranty or Blessing?
So, my 2006 has 140000 miles on it, and only 40k on the new motor. Ford has replaced the injectors and main rear at 85k, and at 99k number 2 & 6 had no compression. So they put a new short block in.
I had asked them why the engine had gone bad and they could not tell me why. About 4 months later the check engine light came on and the Injection Control Module was bad, so I replaced it.
Now, 13 months later and 40k miles later, I brought it in to a independent shop for an oil leak. He looked it over and found that the heads were leaking oil. According to Ford they only warranty thier warranty work for 12/12k...I find this to be crap considering they warranty the original engine for 5/100k.
I've talked with Ford "customer care" and they told me there's nothing they can or will do for me. So, now I have the option of fixing it, or replacing it.
I'm seriously debating on converting to a 5.9L Cummins.
