Need serious help,6.4 gone in 10K

New to the site, but been running Fords forever, from gas to 6.0 to 6.4's, Never have I had a problem like this. Bear with me I'm still in shock. The truck is a '08 F-450, 10,187 miles, all stock, 4.33 rear end, pleasure vehicle, tows a car trailer(once). Start the truck, after a few minutes it starts to stumble and miss. like an injector issue. Take it to the dealer, they tell me #8 has low compression, need to pull the motor and have Ford look at it, should be a new motor. Today they tell me that they may only do the one cylinder and that they are not sure what the truck would be worth when I turn it in. Any Ideas, should I trust this dealer, they seem like they don't want to be bothered, I bought 6 trucks from them in a row, from'99 to '08, as a warranty can I pull it out of there and take it to another dealer,just confused and pissed about the whole thing, Thanks for the help.

Yes you can. Just cause you bought it there does not mean it has to be serviced there. If you feel your are not getting adequate service then I would. 10k miles and number 8 cylinder gone give me a brake. I would make them put a whole new crate in. I would not settle for any less. If they wont. Take it somewhere else and if they tell you the same let them fix it. Get it back and crater that motor until they have to put a whole new one in. Thats jmo, I am sure other guys will chime in. If it were me I would be livid right now to...

i am currently having same problem,i was tuned but dont see how that could have made my engine blow up,truck stumbled on light acceleration and just died,mechanic (who seemed to be mod friendly before)told me he wants no part of it.low compression in one cylinder,seems like a injector hung open and fried the cylinder,i will be returning to stock and bringing to another dealer today.this seems to be a pretty common failure on these trucks.i have 33,000 miles,20,000 tuned,i dont beat on my truck and take extremely good care of it.i just think there is a underlying problem with the fuel system on these trucks

Well, today I yanked the truck from dealer 1, they tried to hit me with a diagnostic bill (don't think so) and took it to a rival Ford dealer close by, the company I work for spends tons of money here so I was greeted rather well, laid it all out on the line, told me it will be in asap, but the holiday week screws things up,thats fine, just tell me straight up, doesn't feel it's the cylinder, more like an injector cause the truck runs good for a few minutes then pops a light and starts to miss, we'll see, also can't see dealer 1 doing a compression test, looks like nothing was touched on the motor, maybe guy had x-ray eyes! Thanks for the input, theres more to follow. Can't wait for the quality questionaire for this one!!!!

Well, got word back today from dealer #2, same results, my 10,187 mile F-450 needs a motor, internal engine damage, # 8, no compression, body's coming off, motor needs to come out, inspected (guess by Ford), new motor installed, only good thing is this dealer says now that the trucks started, it goes non stop till completed, another two weeks, no rent-a-car, (renting since 11-08), now we'll talk to Ford.

Well the no loaner car sucks. That's one thing I do like about my dealer, even if it is for a few hours or days one way or another they will give you something to drive. Glad that they are fixing it for you.
