Im pretty sure the tuner will show a gap in the ECM, so when they plug it in the data log will be blank. Which means they will know.

So your asking for help on how to have Ford foot the bill even though you might have put the aftermarket parts on knowing that it could void your warranty. I'm not trying to ruffle your feathers, but it's just not right.

Have your talked to the service manager about your mods? Some dealers are mod friendly than others.

This is the biggest thing, some wont warranty it no matter what, I have even seen it down to the oil filter cap. Some wont mind if it has a tuner or exhaust on it....Its all in what places are more laid back. Some say if they find out that THAT specific part is the cause, they wont warranty it.

3 of my buds are ASE ford techs and work on diesels everyday. They specifically went to a Ford training class for the snow over jobs people were pulling on the dealership with warranty claims.

I remember one of them telling me a story about a guy with propane, nitrous, and stacked chips ripping it all off and coming in for warranty work when the piston left the block. He said he was just driving down the highway. lol.

With a problem like this, its all in the dealer.

Ok i dont know what to do im stuck between a rock and a hard place and just want ford to cover for there mess up. Im not some guy like you described rotbody. I follow my maintencce schedule meticiously, dont race it or beat on it. Just did my mods for reliabilty and towing. If ford had put out a truck that they stood behind they would have taken care of us, Not screw us like there doing on the 6.0. We have paid thousands of dollars for a truck thats reliable and I dont believe in having to deal with truck down time just cause ford wont own up to there mistake. But anyway after my angry rant will ford know. Also I dont think ford can deny a claim unless they can prove it caused the failure under the Magnuson Moss Waranty Act.

If its an engine problem, the first thing they will point to will be the tuner. And while maybe they can't prove that the tuner is what caused it, good luck proving that it didn't. It a coin toss on this one. You knew it was a gamble when you modified the truck. Read the specifics of your warranty. Not saying that I am on Ford's side, but if they covered every problem on a modified vehicle, they would be bankrupt. Sorry, and best of luck.
