$13,000.00 for what?!?!?!
The dealer want's me to fork over 13 grand to fix my truck, or better yet, have my insurance company do it.
Here's the scoop.
2008 6.4 F250
My truck has the 6.4 curse. The HPFP issue is the latest. A few weeks ago my truck would go into limp mode when I got close to an empty tank of fuel. It gradually got worse and finally a few days ago started throwing P0087 and P0088 intermittently. Know that I have the "Diesel Guard" extended warranty, I took it in.
Ford calls me yesterday and tell me that the entire fuel system needs to be replaced front to back including the HPFP and suggests that I call my insurance company. They claim that fuel contamination is the cause, thus warranty is out the window.
I know of the HPFP issues with these truck after reading on here for the last few days. What I don't know is all my options.
I told them to leave it alone, and flash the computer with the TSB that widens the sensor parameters for now. They weren't too thrilled that I had done my research an said that the code would just come right back on.
What are my options? Do I really need an entire new fuel system? Will the flash get me by long enough to trade it in? Ideas??
