Dealer Warranty Report - Good or bad? Picture

I have been curious since I bought this truck (Feb 2012) about what type of work it has had done to it: EGR, HG, etc. I called a Ford Dealer and this is what he faxed over to me. Can anyone decipher what it says? I can atleast see it has new head gaskets. What quality are the parts from the dealer? Is going through the items again worth it?

Your truck has had head gaskets, oil cooler, and EGR cooler replaced. Ford parts are all fine with the exception of the head bolts (studs are ideal). The main concern is that this was 3 years ago. It would be nearly impossible to determine how the truck was used and treated between the time this job was performed and the time you bought it. Get a monitor and watch your temps and pressures. that way you will be able to determine the condition of your engine as of now. I would recommend doing an EGR delete whenever feasible. ARP head studs when possible as well (though they are pricey).

Also, I would call the dealer and see if it is possible to determine if they checked the condition of the heads when they did head gaskets. If they didn't resurface them you may be looking at another head gasket job (don't want to scare you but it is important to note that it is a possibility).

Is your truck on summing oil or coolant now? Puking coolant out of the degas bottle?

I do want to bring up and I don't know an exact date this happened but for stock head jobs they changed the torque sequence and steps when installing and even changed the material in the bolts. I was told this by a ford tech that has been a SMT for over 10 years so I would trust him myself. Now that said he still feels for heavy towing or tuning head studs are the way to go but the changes ford made fixes the HG's going out with just normal use.

You're saying they did this from the factory or only to trucks that came back with blown head gaskets?

no not factory just on trucks that came back in. I can ask to see if he knows the date.

Lots of people came back multiple times to ford to replace hg. And material doesn't matter if they are still TTY bolts, the strength is designed already.
