That is absolutely a suspect diagnosis. With very few exceptions, only one thing will generally break at a time in anything. Sure, there can be cascading failures ... but I highly doubt that in this case. Take your truck back and flick them off. Tell them they could also make a profit by offering honest repair services to customers they intend to keep.
I had a Ford dealer diagnose a intermittent no-start and engine dying issue as a glow plug problem! (it turned out to be a bad performance chip that only worked sometime) They concluded that I should replace _every_ component of the glow plug system ... and said it was the reason why my truck might die without a struggle sometimes when first put into Drive ... and why it would sometimes not start at all (not start as in no injection, not struggling to start). I fixed the glow plug issue separately by ... get this ... replacing the Glow Plug Relay. And I fixed the no-start issue by removing the performance chip.
Dealers are getting more and more crooked everyday.
