Injector Replacement Time

Okay, so I went and got a labor quote today at Ford for all eight injectors replaced. I was told 6.5 hours for install at the crappy $95 an hour labor rate (I used to get $70, but my buddy got replaced by some douchebag). Anyways, is this legit? I coulda swore I saw a TSB for 3.6 hours for the whole install. If anyone could refer me to this TSB, I'd love to have it and refer it to this new crappy service manager. I have a feeling they may be taking advantage of me, cause they think I don't know anything about these trucks. But I know my 6.0L's.

BTW, I used to be recognized by everybody in that dealership, but they have all been replaced by corporate bluecollar buttholes, and I don't have a hookup anymore. I'm gonna drive back and talk to the new diesel tech soon. He did ask me if I had studs and EGR delete, so that's a good sign.

6.5 is a little high but it's not totally unfair. Mitchell is around 6 hours if I recall correctly

TSBs are about half of what you should get paid. It's ford's way of cutting corners

Typically a TSB only applies to Warranty claims. And are not like recalls whereas they DO NOT apply to customer payed repairs. 6 hours is fair. Just be happy the labor rate is only$95 and not $109

Well, I had to change out the #4 injector tonight. I called the dealership, figured let them do it I am busy. $266 for the injector, total job $800. I lost it on the guy at the dealership. Almost $550 for labor on one injector!!! And he said it with a straight face! I did it myself in the driveway, the money I saved covers the cost of my new FICM from ED!!!

My thoughts exactly. They wanted $180 to diagnos the problem also. I am new to Texas, but the dealerships are never empty. I can hope that it is a lot of warranty work, otherwise they are ripping off a lot of people.

Okay, one more question. Is the turbo removed during installation? I kind of thought it was, but wasn't sure... They were wanting to charge me an extra 4 hours of labor to swap turbos while they were in there...

No it doesnt have to be pulled, and 4 hours for a turbo? Thats a joke, I can pull a turbo and clean it, put it back in an hour. Find someone else.

Turbo doesn't need to come out to r&r injectors. Not unless there is some coking issue should they even touch it! And 2.5hr is pretty standard turbo r&r, an extra hour maybe to recondition.
