DieselStop.come has almost 149,000 members...and not a single fuel pump failure post due to Ford. Even if there were a couple of Ford related failures, that's still only a couple out maybe 75,000 (assuming 1/2 the members listed have a newer model truck or have knowledge about them). 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?
If the problem is as big as people make it out to be, it should have happened to a regular member of this forum.
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.
