Exclamation 911 Need help

The dealer I took my truck to said ford wants them to change my oil and drive the truck for 1500 miles then bring it back.

Problems I have with this they want me to pay for the oil change $100.00

The oil was changed by a ford dealer 7/31/2008 only driven 600 miles since

I've already taken the truck to the dealer 5 days ago to fix the same problem, they gave it back, I took it back to them with video proof of what it was doing. they've had the truck since monday.

My waranty exspires in Dec. I will not have driven 1500 miles since then.

Please help or tell me who to call for a second opinion.

I wouldn't pay crap, show them the reciept for the oil change and call the 1-800 # in your owners manual for customer assistance. Be prepared, you may have to be an *** to get results. Good luck

Called the service writer and told them no Im not paying but if you want to change the oil and let me drive it for a while thats fine but i want in writing waranty doesnt go untill Im satisfied with the repair. If they give it back Im going to the coast to pick up my buddies boat

AN UPDATE

They changed the oil and told me ford wants to do a "Burn test".
Tech said crank case pressure was higher than it was supposed to be. I have to drive 1500 miles before dec 30. and bring it back they have white alignment marks on the oil fill tube, filter and drain plug. Tech said if it is indeed burning oil they'll order me a new motor which will come with and additional 1 year warranty.


So i guess either im being yanked around or this test is legit. wither way im driving it from Tallahassee to the keys in november so I should have my miles by mid november.


Anyone else ever heard of this?

I haven't heard of Ford doing this but we have done a similar type test at Volvo. Change the oil and filter have the customer drive 500 miles and then bring it by and let us check the oil level, Usually did that 3 consecutive times (1500 miles) before the motor was condemned. we had a valve guide and porous block issue for a few years and Volvo wanted us to replace the complete engine if the car was under warranty

got the truck back after dealer had it over a week.
tech says he cant find anything wrong.
here what his notes say:
Pg.1
KAOER-Pass
Click-Pass
VGT- 85% at idle"well above spec due to after market exhaust" Cat still in.
FORD ebpa biased.
Replaced EBP sensor and retested. All Pids except for VGT DC to spec.
Vehicle is not consuming oil, inspection, no oil from previous visit 1500 miles ago.
scratched out is "no other possible repairs other than"
Pg.2
Map-15.54
EBP-15.05
vgt 85% at idle.
Baro-14.48

tech called this morning to ask me when it smoked and other various questions.
said they replaced the EBP(part number 4c3z-9j460-a) and that if i brought it back ford wanted the stock ehaust back on it or they would do nothing.
I feel like im being pushed off so they dont have to fix it. said they didnt care if i shot more video's of the smoking.
Should i be worried or pushing them? Also how much blow by is normal for a 6.0 if you pull the dip stick out while truck is running a visualy noticable amount of gas is exiting the tube.


Could a mod move this to the engine problem section?
Thanks for the help
