fuel filter changed denied

Didnt have time today to change my fuel filters and I went to to local Mr.lube just for a fuel filter change and they said if your 6.4 is a 2008 we wont touch the fuel filters because I guess thy had a problem with one that didnt restart and had to send it to a diesel mechanic and the bill was huge...he said if it was a 09 or 10 they would change it........I was shocked i changed my fuel filters every 2 months and never had a problem i purge the system and she fires right up.

That's pretty ridiculous IMO as the 6.4L IS the 6.4L, regardless of '08, '09 or '10!!

It sounds like a good shop to stay away from, the truck they had the problems with was probably screwed up by something that they did like not using quality filters or not getting it back together correctly.

You are probably lucky that they didn't work on your truck!

They assured me they purged the system but I figure someone there forgot and that's what happened

I just cant see what would go wrong just by pulling the fuel filters. Im sure it was hard to start and all but i have done that and took me some time to start it but i got it started and it ran fine. I believe i would stay away from that shop

Yeah most likely they didn't cycle the key 6 times like they should have. Ps.....cycling the key 4 times is not sufficient, don't ask me how I know

Yes it takes a full 6 times to get the truck primed and ready to go again. I know this because when I was purging the air from the system before hooking up my airdog fuel line it took several key cycles just to get the air out of the lines.
