I've read a thread here concerning Ford's beliefs on what miles to hours should be for warranty, oil/filter changes, etc. I have also read about some of the guys letting their truck spool down before turning it off. I'm in construction and my truck stays on all the time during the day (they always have as I was mainly concerned about the turbos, starters and that it's just inconvenient to turn it on/off all day long). I've also got rammed in the *** by Ford for them denying my warranty to replace a motor on my last 6.4 due to service (based it off hours I guess cause my mileage service was well documented). So my question is how long should I let a diesel spool down and/or what should I be guaging it on- time, etc's, eot's, pyrometer reading, etc. I'm as loyal to Ford as any one but I don't want to tangle with them again on warranty issues cause they don't give two ****s how deep your loyalty is, apparently. Thanks in advance.
