Hahaha...

Went to the dealership to get a set of fuel filters on Friday for the 6.7. they told me the factory filter in the engine compartment has three ports on them and the third port is for starting them at the factory ( I asked because the one they gave me only had two) any who... they also told me I couldn't change it because it'll airlock when I try to start it and that you have to have a special bleeder tool to change them. They wanted 200 dollars to change. Well I chanced it and did it myself and didn't have any problems. Anyone else been told this by their dealer??

No, but I don't have enough miles yet to warrant changing it. I'm going to look in the manual about fuel filters.

Page 41 and 42 of the Diesel Supplement mentions nothing about a special tool. It just tells you to purge the air from the system by cycling the key on for 30 seconds then off 6 times, just like the 08-10 trucks.

Glad to hear you didn't fall for their stupidity, you should call them on it next time you're in there.

I was told about the third port by a Ford tech that i know. He mentioned nothing about having to have a special tool to do this job. Your dealership was most likely lying to you to earn the $200.

It gets better guys. I called the guy I bought the truck from ( had 6k on it when I bought It) and he said the dealership in Lincoln changed it. I told him what I found and he about **** his pants. It never got changed and he has a receipt from them for 400 dollars for changing the fuel filters! I have 13k on it now and it still had the factory filters on it. I called my dealer and told them I changed them and they told me I was full of it haha they claim its impossible

Wow thats terrible. I would switch dealers in a second.

Another reason I would never get a new diesel. I am not insulting them there is just too much up keep and BS any more.

You should drive up there and slam the filter with the 3 ports down on the counter. Then have those bastards return the previous owners money for the supposed fuel filter change that was never done, not to mention what about possible damage done to the engine for them not doing it at the scheduled time, if that was your fault that would have voided your warrenty, what are they gonna do for you?

I haven't mustered up the courage to call the original dealer yet. This is how companies get bad reps. If they would just do what they said they'd do we wouldn't have to deal with this bs. I read the manual like a previous poster said.. I am taking it to my dealer today to show them its not impossible

Well if it were my ride, I'd call the original deal and find out how this was overlooked/not taken care of. You have proof that the factory original filter was in place still
