Sorry to hear that. At least it's warranty. I think the bedplate in my 6.0 is starting to leak. Not bad yet but I'll probably be fixing it this Fall or Winter. Hope you get it back soon.

The 6.4's are supposed to be far less prone to leak than the 6.0's.

Well, I got a call from my service advisor tonight, and he told me that the motor is back together, and sealed up and put back together. They will start the engine install tomorrow and have it buttoned up by Monday. Dang, I miss my truck. I'm gonna go in tomorrow and see how it looks. Ill snap a few pics if possible.

So no pics were possible, they really didn't want me in the shop with the mechanic. Anyway, The service was great, and i had no issues with it until i get half way home and my wife asks me if i smelled burning oil or hot oil. I said no, but when we got home i sure did. So when i get home, i pop the hood and take a look around to find my oil filler cap missing. I looked all over and found it sitting on my radiator. I was livid to say the least. I told the customer satisfaction rep that i was very displeased with what i found and not 5 minutes later i received another call from my service advisor. I explained to him what i had found and he apologized and said he would let the tech know. Looks like i wont be going back there again. Im glad to have the truck back though.

I had the bedplate seal oil leak ... had the cab off repair done. When I picked up my truck, the stick shift was not connected correctly to the trans and the truck would not shift into gears ... it was stuck in 1st! How the hell could those idiots drive the truck out of the garage like that, and then claim the truck was ready for pickup? Anyway, had them fix that ... then a few weeks later the rear main seal started leaking. It's been leaking for months ... I haven't taken the truck back in since it's running fine. Ford and their dang leaks! Love my truck, though!

You've got to be kidding. You're that upset over the filler cap. I've done that myself a couple of times. When you do that extensive work sometimes you miss something. Haven't you forgot something at your job before. Trust me they don't do it on purpose. The tech probably had a line of vehicles out the door waiting on him plus you who stopped in once already and he knew you wanted him to rush. Try to look at it through his shoes for once. Pitiful...
