Going to be honest with ya'll!!!
Like my subject line says I'm going to be honest with ya'll. I am a troll looking for information for my dad's 6.7 diesel F350 2011 truck.
The truck was new and uses it to haul cattle from sell barns for people in Arkansas, apparently the engine blew up or out not sure which term is used correctly? He kind of made a tech geek instead of a farmer or trucker like him. So, the thing is that under warranty he got the new engine, but after that he has had problems as such: poor MPG, loss power and such, and constant errors. He has compared the poor gas mileage with that of a similar Dodge truck to the Ford 350; the Dodge is getting better fuel mileage that of the F350. He told me that Ford knows of these problems and had a tech come out to write a program for the computer, but the programer has not done a sufficient job. I still can not get a program to rectify these problems.
His dealership is giving him the run around and trying to get out of a lemon claim and blame him for the additional problem's that have happened since the new engine. With constantly being in the shop and losing money from his lively hood being a disable vet an all. I want to be able to help.
Question is have any of ya'll have this type of problems? If you have I would like to get some information that I can forwarded to him to help in maybe filing a lawsuit.
I understand if you don't want to reply to me cause I'm trolling and I'm not really a Ford type. I do like trucks and my first truck I ever drove was his GMC Sierra and love driving trucks since. I was probably 8 or 9 at that time. He sold his boat to buy me a 85' Toyota 4x4 when I had a bum car that I bought used. Loved that truck!
Anyway, I appreciate any and all information ya'll can give or share to me.
