The piston has a crack on either side & looks egg shaped & looks like it is melted or beat up!

No it's not but i don't see how he is saying that ford says leave it! I still have 6 months & 17,000 miles on the warranty. That piston will come apart before then & then it's going to be alot more $$$ than just to put a new piston in there now! WTF

The piston isn't worth using as a ash tray! i'll be going back there Monday to take pics with my camera so you'll be able to see better how screwed up it is!

The valve somehow got bent, the computer compensated for the loss of power on that cylinder by adding more fuel, and that melted your piston. The piston does need to be replaced along with a cylinder head. You will probably find that when the piston is removed, that the rest of it will look fine, the top is just a little disformed.

I had an e450 do this before, but a piston in it and a new cylinder head, its been fine since, been over a year ago.

Thanks DieselDano very much I need some kind of info to take back to him to make them change it! The oil cooler was down to 20% there is 2 bad injectors & the regulator has a ear broke of the mount along with blown head gaskets to where it was so bad the water has been pushing out so bad it's now turned to rust water.
