Problem with coolant

Had truck at ford dealer for over heating problem, dealer found broken t fitting on coolant filter, they said it is after market and not covered by my warranty. I bought the truck as is from a used deal and a extended warranty. Does anyone know what there talking about?

Truck is 07 F350 6.0 w/sct programer

Well obviously they're taking about a coolant filter that was added at some point.
Prove that you didn't add it or just fix the fitting and don't hassle with the dealer.

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

They wont cover any repair on a coolant filter for a few reasons

A) They don't support it, they have no parts

B) It is a aftermarket part.

Now as far as the thing having a broken valve, go to a hardware store or maybe a parts house for a new one and also pick yourself up a few filters for the coolant filter. You want to keep that up and filtering, it's very important with these engines to keep casting sand and any cooling system debris out of your oil cooler and that coolant filter is your best defense.

Make sure you FIX IT !!!!

Which coolant filter are you using? Since most are by pass systems, a broken t shouldn't cause over heating. Maybe a leak, but not over heat.

If you lost enough coolant the truck could very well overheat
