clip that holds fuel injector in

I'm wondering if anyone else that owns a new 6.7 ford motor has had an issue with the clips that hold the fuel injectors in the motor the mechanic tells me there is no one else with this problem my 2011 F250 has 13000 miles on it and keeps blowing the clips off the injectors and warranty work is a joke they have had my pickup for a month and still waiting for a stupid clip because there are 360 on back order but there is no such thing as a problem with them

I've not heard of this problem, but your saying the dealer has had your truck for a month they would have to take a clip off a new truck. Or make my truck payment for me. I have sure been reading alot about bad customer service from ford.

We have a 2011 F350 6.7L at work. We use it as a small utility dump truck and to plow some snow with. It has 6000 miles on it, and we've had it for a year.

Yesterday the hold-down for one of the injectors failed and the injector blew out. Some metal lines were bent in the process. It's at the dealership now under warranty.

Is there anything we should do or check so the likelyhood of this is reduced? Do they loosen over time and then break?

I know this is an older thread but any ideas about the injector hold down pieces? We've had one blow the injector out...and there is all kinds of trouble now. The fuel line was bent good, the injector is ruined and the copper washer cannot be found. Ford dealer mechanic says he's not sure where the copper washer went as the injector didn't come out fully to where the washer would have fell off. The theory is the injector came out enough for the washer to come off the tip, and somehow there is an opening where it can get inside the cylinder head valve train. Who knows?

They said there is no "known issues" with this...yet its funny they have an "improved part" to prevent this from happening.

We have 7 of these 6.7L trucks and are wondering if we should address all 56 injector hold downs.

I know of @ least 3 issues, me 3 times! Broke down again with the same problem, this time in Troy NY towing a 5th wheel. Ford warranty is a JOKE! They refuse to replace all of the clamps.

Model year and miles on your truck? This must not be common issue seeing that your the first one to reply to this thread in almost three and half years. Ford warranty a joke? Ford, like other vehicle makers, will only replace/repair the broken part(s), not parts that may fail or break in the future.

I understand your pain, but this isn't a common issue that we have seen so far. That being said, Ford warranty will go farther for you than gm or ram. Ever try to get warranty work done from a dodge dealer? You literally have to point a damn gun at the service manager and threaten his children and dog before anything gets covered.

Have you had 3 DIFFERENT injectors blow out?? If so then I can see trying to get them to replace all of them. However, if it is the same one each time... You have other problems.

Read the TSB, they know they have an issue with 6.7's built prior to 12/12/11. They only will replace a clamp if it's broken or cracked. They pay to inspect all clamps, this involves looking with a flashlight (was there when he did it) in very difficult areas, NOBODY could see a hairline crack. Furthermore, when they do break it wipes out the return fuel line (more expense and labor). On top of that, I'm willing to bet they have recourse with the company that made the lousy clamps to begin with! It's only another 1.5 hours flat rate and parts to fix it right. Oh yeah, and it cost them $375 to get my truck flatbeded, $150 for me to get the 5th wheel towed (which I will fight for as They're (Roadside assistance) suppose to pay up to $200 but refused to!), rental vehicle fees for how ever long we'll be stranded, and a loyal customer that will (now) give up on Ford! Yeah, good decision
Keep responding, I'm sitting here with nothing to do

Actually I've had multiple vehicles from Gm and Ford, no Dodge that was under warranty. GM used to be great but have heard not so much so now. I've owned a Marine/Powersports business, was a RV service manager, and grew up in a family owed car dealership (40) years. I know how this works, should that is!

It does appear that this failure is on the same cylinder as in October, #2. The tech is quite familiar with the problem and actually keeps spare clamps in his tool box as quite often they're not available.
