Won't run after an oil change

Yesterday I dropped my 05 6.0 off at my local ford dealer for an oil change and check engine light. Check engine was P0671 (glow plug circuit 1) and ended up being the glow plug. After that they pulled it over to the quick lube to change the oil and after they finished they called and said when they went to pull it off the lift it acted vapor locked. Also they told me nobody could look at it till Monday.... No wheels = Weekend plans out the window.... And 2 days of suspense and irrational thoughts of what may be wrong...


Any thoughts on what it may be? Seems extremely fishy to me.

hell yea. the quick lube probably mix and matched the filter and cap. or there is a problem with the drain back valve in the filter housing. if they reused a napa type cap and used an oem or similar type filter, the drain back valve will not be closed and oil will just route back to the sump. almost guarantee that's the issue.

WTF was ford doing having the oil changed at a quick lube anyways?

It wasn't the quick lube I meant to say the quick lane at the dealer. But still no idea why they moved lift to lift.

ok. well, i still stand behind my theory of the napa cap and oem filter. or the drainback valve was damaged. they're not going to have the best techs changing oil. either that or it's a complete coincidence.

If that's the case will they just need to put a good filter in or would the damage be deeper?

The filter thing is possible but i would look into the glow plug change procedure. Oil can drain into the combustion chamber and basically vapor lock it.

Just picked it up... Seems extremely fishy.....

Dealer explanation:
"The batteries were low. Also there was air in the oil lines for the injectors and the injectors are run off oil pressure. So today they charged the batteries and purged the oil lines to the injectors and now it runs."

Wouldn't the truck have to be started dry to get air up there?
