Should Local dealer Be Responsible????

I had injectors put in the truck about 16 months ago. Had 2 fail so opted to have all 8 replaced. Well prior to my oil coller erupting the truck had been acting a little low on power with a slight stumble to it. I think I have found the culprit. #2 Injector hold down was a little loose. Pulled the injector and this is what I got. My question is, should the dealership be responsible seeing as they did the work, or do I have to eat their screw up?

Any warranty offered on work/parts by the dealer? If no warranty implied or if it ran out, I don't see who else's issue it would be other than yours?

After 16 months, you don't have any claim on the part of the dealership's labor. If the injectors have a warranty, you should be looking into that and see if they will cover the repair.

Did you ever troubleshoot why you had two injectors fail, or did you simply replace them?

When the job was performed they claimed the reason for the 2 failed injectors was low fuel pressure. The truck was updated with the "blue"spring" kit. They replaced the two original bad injectors. they then called and asked if i wanted to just replace them all for the fact that the other 6 may have some damage from fuel starvation. so i opted to have them all done. After 3 months or so i noticed the low power and stumble. the truck went back to them. they ran a injector contribution test and all were within ford specified parameters. thats as far as they went into it. This was noticed as I am tearing the truck down to do HG's, studs, ect, ect. I was able to back the injector hold down bolt out by hand. Im a big guy but no way strong enough to break loose a bolt supposedly torqued to 24 ft lbs.

As far as warranty goes i do believe its a 12 month/12,000 on parts and labor which puts me out on months but not on mileage. But seeing as I took the truck back to them with a low power issue, and they didnt go very deep into it, should it be on me?

Legally, you're out of their warranty.

That's what I was afraid of. Just sucks I have to bite the bullet for their subpar work. Do you think I could get away with a nozzle instead of a full body injector?

The specs are very tight on the 6.0L injectors, and most who machine them for aftermarket applications have a hard time working on them. If it was me, I'd take it one step further and replace the whole injector.
