6.4 HPFP Failure No Warranty
Long story short my 6.4's fuel was contaminated with dirt, probably from pumping fuel at a gas station somewhere. My fuel filters and oil are changed at frequent intervals. A couple dealerships want $9,000 to replace every component in the fuel system. It's not Ford's fault, it's not my fault, its a gas stations fault, as I was told. I think an engineering failure exists as under normal operating conditions and fuel pumping the truck self destructed in 1,500 miles. Insurance also will not cover this.
Frequent Ford advertisements depict Ford trucks as being badass work machines. But I cant even pump fuel into my Ferd F-Teen Thousand and get it down the road.
I'm going to clean the tank out myself, replace the filters, and try to blowout/clean every component I can.
If the problem persists, at the least I will have to replace the HPFP assembly and pull the engine through the front end. I bought a superpremium warranty for several thousand dollars and I feel that it is useless as I was charged $250 for diagnostics and my truck is parked. I AM NOT A SATISFIED CUSTOMER.
I most certainly feel shafted by Ford, and rest assured if I have to pull the Powerstroke engine out, a mechanical Cummins is going in.
