Ford Declined Warranty

After having my truck for nearly a week. ford has made a decision to decline my warranty. they claim that the huge clouds of white smoke pouring out of my exhause are being cause by me not having a cat. the shop mgr said that they will blacklist my VIN. should i say okay, or should i tell them to stick it?

They have to be able to prove it. Take it to another dealership and have it looked at. A missin CAT is not a cause of failure. In order to decline a warranty, they have to be able to prove that the mod is the direct cause of the failure.

I wouldn't tell them that. They still could enter your VIN to Ford. I would be polite and tell them that you will take care of it yourself and then just don't go back. Another dealer will be able to help.

tell them to stick it and make them prove it.... also get yourself a lawyer if they dont want to pay fair. most of these types of dealers will straighten out once they know you got a lawyer to at east just send a letter..... the do have to prove that this was the case and since their is no way it is they are gonna have to fix the truck

good luck

I would like to know how this turns out before I do any major performance mods to my F-350 KR. Turbo-back exhaust was one of the first things I was going to do.

They can't do decline anything for exhaust. You can buy a factory delete pipe from Ford which they call a test pipe that eliminates the Cat. I'm not 100% positive about the 6.0, but some of the 7.3 trucks came from the factory without a cat.
