FWIW, I think the WIF is the weak link.

But Ford covers that by having you drain the bowl once a month.
I will agree on the WIF being a weak link.
So some are adding more protection, and I certainly dont blame anyone.

When mine failed, they had just pulled one out the week before mine. His was worse. Customer pay... 18K.

This is very true

So, let's assume some figures...say two failures that we may not know about in 75,000 trucks. That's one in every 35,000 trucks or 0.00286%. I'll take those odds!!
You're assuming that half the members on this site own 6.7's? Seems like a stretch to me. That would be interesting to know how many here actually do own the 6.7. Any way to find out?

Wow. Such arrogance.

I don't think we know how "big" the problem is. But if you stick your head in the sand and pretend it never happens you'll never know. Some folks here have stated they know of these issues, but you are quick to tell us all that "there is no problem". Apparently your world is limited to the confines of this forum since you are telling me that nothing other than this forum can be factual information.
The fact is that mechanical things do fail from time to time. I for one would like to get more information about these failures that "never happen" in your world.

I've seen DEF in the wrong hole multiple times, gas from the green handle at BP, and a mad ex-girlfriend all leading to 6.7 failures. The only water induced 6.7 I have seen was almost pure water from a flooded below ground tank... so bad that it would have fragged ANY diesel's injection system. The water was picked up by the station, as they knew that their fuel had been compromised, and were continuing to sell it. Meanwhile, 6.4's with their guts puked on the floor due to an injector blowtorching from a pump fragging are at least a weekly occurance and our shop aint that big.

Simply stated, this is one of the biggest Ford Diesel sites on the web.

If there are any issues with these trucks, someone on this site would have experienced it.

There are been many threads on this topic.

There have been many highly respected members saying these failures are not happening as often as indicated.

Ricatic will tell you the failure rate is .06 per 1000 trucks made.


With a failure rate that low you can see why any failure is scrutinized by Ford.



Its a horse that has been beat enough.


If you think there is a problem, don't buy the truck.

If you have the truck and it makes you feel better, buy the vendors product.


The sky is not falling, the pumps are not failing, Life is good....

In another thread I offered to send anyone Fords response to the NTSHA.

They were/are investigating another manufacturer.

Its a long dry read. If you are interested in reading it send me a PM with your email and I will send it to you.

It is to big to PM.

I am sure it is the same report as referenced by Stsmark.

Maybe he can share the link, I only have a PDF copy.

Apparently, being a member of this forum makes your truck immune to the HPFP failure.

This site is apparently my cheapest insurance policy but I have to agree with KJ.

I also love bad puns, especially when the sig line goes against the past (that was a double bad pun if no one got it).

When a members truck has an issue with the fuel system, start a new post about how you have been treated by Ford. This one is closed.
