Engine Pull

Here is one for the techs. My dad has an 06 F-250. He found a small oil leak and the dealer run a dye test Im assuming to help find the leak? The dealer is telling him they have to pull the motor. Does that sound right to you all? Its just a few drops here and there. Its under warrenty so he is good to go, but sounds strange maybe you all can explain why they would pull the motor Of course he didnt get all the info he should have from the dealer, so he isn't quite sure why either.

It just depends on the location of the leak. They pull the cab for some things--that's the easiest way to work on the motor if you have the capability--IMHO. I know one gentleman who's bed plate leak was repaired by pulling the transmission to access it. Not the way I would have wanted it fixed, but I guess if it works.........

Yeah I guess I found it strange to have to pull the motor to fix an oil leak, but those 6.0's are crammed in there tight. I would think they would lift the cab as well. This is the salesman who sold him the truck talking to my dad, so who knows

ive seen earlier 6.0 have a bed pan leak that would cause you to need to pull the engine , very doubtful for an 06 model, ask them what they said was leaking
