took the 6.0 in again

Well I took the 6.0 in again to the dealer. I saw that it was puking out of the degass bottle, so I took it in and it was the good old egr cooler. So I talked to the mechanic and told him I want to do a egr delete, he said not a problem. So then I said I would like to do all the updates on the engine under warranty if possible. If not I would pay for the parts to get replaced. Then we started talking about APR studs, He said he would have to do some testing that is required by ford but he would have no problem if they approve the work.
So with all that said I am getting a egr delete, oil cooler, updated stc fitting( I am paying for this), dummy plugs, drain tubes, head gaskets, and APR studs( I am paying for these too). I am getting all this done with only 2 weeks left on my warranty. I can think of any other updates that needs to be done.
So I am happy with the results and mechanic that is willing to help with the updates and the work that he is doing.
So we will see how the rest of it goes but right now I am happy.

At least I am having all the labor covered, I just have to buy the parts. And the mechanic is cool about doing this.

You lucky dog! My warranty runs out in Feb, my dealer told me they do ARPs and injectors if I buy the parts!... But they have to have a reason to dig in there, and my truck has never had an issue even though I work it extremely hard... One month out I'm going to ask the question again, but they said they have to send faulty parts to ford for proof, so they can't just stud me for no reason! What to do ...

I have about 2000mi left on my extended warranty.I was gonna bring it in for a wrench light that pops up every now and than and also some puking but not much.You guys always talk to the "mechanic"..When ever I go in I have to deal with the manager and never really get to talk with the tech...And they really dont want to talk nor do they have much knowledge of the work involved in a given situation.Any sugguestions......Truck has 82,000mi with no issues as of now..Well besides a ficm and a fuel sending unit and both were changed under my extended....

2005 f350 Lariat,,Stock for now--Television, the internet, ipods, all influenced by POS trashy celebrities. The people that try to help raise kids in a positive way Teachers and Cops are now the sworn enemy.

They are correct, they will not do any of the work unless there is a problem and it has to be repaired. Unless you want to pay for the labor too. They have test that they preform and them summit the numbers they get off the test to ford. If the numbers are not with in spec then ford will warranty the part.
If I was you I would do a coolant flush right now, since that ussaly clogs a cooler. That might be your way to get every thing done under warrant.
