my 6.0 is in service.

I bought my truck about a month ago and have been noticing that I can't get any better than 10-11 mpg no matter how much I baby it. I also was noticing that when the converter would lock up in OD, I would get a missfire or bogging. I took it in to my local dealer today and they called me back very quickly telling me that number 4 injector is doing really bad. They will have a new one in tomorrow and will change it right away. I can't wait to get my rig back and running correctly!! Big thumbs up to my local ford dealer!!!

Took my truck in today for a service and some tranny work. I hope I get it back soon and I also left my truck programmed.

We techs appreciate it when customers put things up like this. Is there any way that you could put up the name of the dealer and where its at? Info about dealers is like the news, you only hear bad stuff. Thanks in advance if you can let us know where you got the service so others here may beable to go to.

Thats was a really bad thing to do. If they do a reflash - sometimes they just do it if they see you don't have the latest ford program - your tunner will be worthless!
What kind of programmer do you have? Maybe call and make sure they don't do any programming.

Hey Stroketech, I agree that there are some really good guys working at some of the dealers and they should be recognized. But there are still too many jerks as well. I never know when I get to the dealer which type I'm going to be working with. One guy bends over backwards to help me. Another acts like I'm wasting his time. Ford needs to weed some of the bad guys out.

I told the service manager it was in and he said it will be fine. I have the PPE programmer and they are 30 min. from where I live so if I have problems I'll take it to them. They've fixed it before.

as Jon said...its really nice to hear someone talking about having a good experience with the dealer. You hear ALL of the bad stories...and rarely hear about the good...because people dont tend to voice thier opinion and experiences when they arent mad!!

Its a good thing to hear, and is much appreciated....there are a few members of this forum that have been to my dealer, and i KNOW they are very happy (and if you read this howard....lets leave the ABS light out of it...it wasnt my fault your Pickup has an Excursion PCM in it )

Well, I can say nothing but GOOD things about Maritime Ford both sales and service.
Their service department is always friendly and fairly priced. They do my oil changes and all may maintenance because it was only $5.00 more to do it myself. They take me home when my truck is in service. They will pick it up anywhere in town, service it and then return the truck with an invoice on the seat. The truck is always clean and I have yet to have something fixed twice (knock, knock,wood).
