advise please on warranty

I bought a well maintained 1 owner,superclean, good oasis report 2004 ( Late03 motor) 2wd F-250 supercrew King ranch 6 months ago.When I bought it I bought a ford powertrain 29 warranty which covers all the major engine parts,transmission,etc for $ 2410.00 which will cover the truck for the next 24k miles.
The dealer was great and fixed everything i pointed out that I thought needed replaced the leaking Ipr, blue spring, front brakes, new batteries, &complete service. I bought the truck with 87k and now have 90k I have cleaned the EGR Valve which wasnt too dirty and installed a coolant filter when I first got it. I am on my second filter now the first one removed a small teaspoon of sand and It appears not have the ford gold coolant in it from what I can tell and looks clean? I will only use T-6 every 3000 and i like using the diesel kleen every tank.

The truck runs great and I love it it, heres my question.

If I dont have any problems in the next 23k is there something I could do just before the warranty runs out to make my head gaskets,oil cooler,oil pump,egr cooler and transmission fail all at once? if in the next 23K nothing fails should it be a pretty safe bet that I have a decent 6.0?


thanks

David

So you are looking for help to make your motor and transmission have issues?
So that you will have a warranty cover it?

Anything you do to that motor, will show up when they look at it (the dealership, or the warranty auditor), then they won't have to cover anything and you'll be fixing what you broke.

First thing I would do is get a good monitor, and keep the truck in the best of condition. Take care of things when the symptoms start, and avoid the huge repairs. There's plenty of resources here to help you enjoy the truck.

There is no reason to try and bag warranty with anything, when your dealer was good enough to fix everything you pointed out in the beginning.
