Exclamation 2005 f250 wont start

HELP!
My husband's truck just decided not to start yesterday. It wanted to turn over but just wouldn't. We took it to the dealer who said it was a loss of pressure in the high pressure oil pump. He hcarged us $600 to tear down the engine and said yes it was the pump and that there are also hairline cracks in the lines. He gave us a HUGE estimate for repair. We owe Ford less for the whole truck. Does this sound like the right diagnosis to anyone??? If so any guess as to waht it would resonably cost to fix the pump and the line things?

please comment and thanks for all help!!!

First off welcome to the org. Secondly Yes this sounds like it could be your problem. and I cant answere how much it would cost but it is not cheap. And if the lines are cracked then they will have to be replaced.

The same thing happened to my 05 F250 but unless you have over 100,000 miles on it it should be covered under warranty, mine was ,it had 60,000 miles on it at the time ......the powerstrokes have a 5 year 100,000 mile warranty that will cover the HPOP,injectors,internals,turbo,etc.

If the ICP wasnt getting enough pressure its deffinitely the problem. Warranty pays us 8.0hrs for it. We charge right at 85 an hour for labor here and I would say your getting a decent price from a dealership, plus they will have it done in about 4 hours if they are good. Ive seen some come in here that were attempted elsewhere and they make it way to difficult.

thanks for the input- so i guess that $4700.00 plus $600 to tear it down for diagnostics is a bit high......

Yeah I wanna say the part is only about 250 or so after tax....not completely sure. Just make sure whoever is doing it knows what they are doing.

What "line" was it exactly that they said had cracks in it? The only way I see it costing that much is if the branch tube is cracked. Usually in this case, the truck will start cold, due to the oil being "thicker," and not start after hot shutdown.
