bad fuel pumps

my dad drives a 2010 f250, 6.4. its got 65,000 miles, all maintainance is always done on time on it, and its all stock. he recently expierienced a severe lack of power when he was towing a light 2-4 thousand pound trailer with it. when he took it to the dealer, they diagnosed that the high and low presssure fuel pumps had both gone bad. hes not really a gearhead or a diesel enthusiast, just a hard working american that needs his truck . i was wondering what causes the fuel pumps on these to go out, so this can be prevented from happening again, or if they just happened to go out. thanks in advance!

I drain mine once a month and on my customer that cant do it themselves i i do thiers everytime the truck is in no matter what we are doin Usually when the pumps go the truck doesnt even run though so i find it odd that the pump was causing your dads issues... Unless the filters were extremly clogged up which i doubt unless he got bad fuel

look on frame drivers side for water/fuel drain, look in your manuel, drain into a clear container to determine if theres water present once a month or sooner. I bought my 2010 6.4 at 45400, I bought bumper to bumper insurance, good for 60000 mi. that gave the dealer some incentive to road test prior to me leaving the dealership, to make sure they had'nt overlooked something on thier prior checks. Heres some of what they did. 1- replaced 2 fuel filters, 2 replaced charge air cooler, 3 recalabrated powertraincontrol module code11b23 certain 2008-2010 f-250 superduty note this is a recall so check on your recalls if any. Mileage currently is 53000 and looking good, hope this helps. Good luck to both of us.
