OH BOY. Where do i start.
I took my 03 f350 7.3l, with only 117k miles on it, in last Thursday to get a minor oil leak fixed. It was nothing major but very annoying.
So they tell me i have 2 oil leaks. The front main seal and the oil pump. They did specify which oil pump. Its raining like cats and dogs when i go pick it up so i did not notice any leaks.
So on monday i notice that it is still leaking oil. By wednesday i lost 2 qts! Now i was hauling 9k lb of rock 30 miles up and down the interstate. So i was working it pretty hard.
I call up to the dealership that did the work and tell them its still leaking. I took it back up on Friday and they tell me my HPOP is bad. Not just orings but the whole dam pump. I think shet but theres no i could do. I tell them to just fix so i could have my work truck back.
By Saturday afternoon they tell me its fixed. I pick it up and noticed some oil under the truck. I went back in and asked him about it and he said some is still probably leaking from the replacement since they cant clean it all off. I also noticed it took a little long to start. But no biggy
Well today we load up and start working. Drove around all morning no problem. Hit the interstate and 15 miles down the road we hit a steep hill that we have. Truck did not want to downshift. Even with the skinny all the way down the floor. She finally downshifted and as soon as i got up the hill the engine shut off. All i can see is a ton of smoke in my rear view and me freaking out cause i have not power to the breaks. Luckily the trailer breaks still worked.
It looks like one the hoses popped out of the HPOP and oil just went everywhere. idk wdf happened but it was not good. I had 3 employees with me and we all were just sitting on the side of the highway waiting on the tow truck.
Lets just say the dealership is going to have one pissed sob standing at their front door when the open in the morning
Heres the pics, let me know what you think
