FORD DIESEL FUEL TANK DELAMINATION NEED HELP

I have a 2006 ford f350 super duty diesel truck with 11, 400 miles on it and the truck was unable to go past 40 miles per hour. took it to the ford dealership , to find out that the fuel tank delaminated and the repair bill would be 7,000.00 dollars. i almost passed out... the service dept person told me i used the wrong diesel fuel , wrong ? never ever used additives or any bio fuel . need to ask for help , i see other posting with similiar or same issue , did any body get any assistance or help with the repairs from ford company? if anyone has any info please can you share it. This problem does not exist in any other trucks such as chevy or international trucks.

Good luck with your problem, but let's be realistic. Machines break down. All of them. Even these nice big expensive Ford trucks, along with their Dodge and Chevy counterparts. The sooner you learn to accept that, the better off you'll be with whatever kind of truck you decide on.

Yea thats all well and good, but this delamination problem is totally unacceptable on a 5 year old truck. I can't help the OP but in no way would I deem this and acceptable "break down". Good luck to the OP.

Oh I'm not saying it isn't unacceptable, my only point was, or was intended to be, that it has nothing to do with Ford. Don't tell me there aren't cases of "unacceptable" low mileage failures on Chevys and Dodges (and everything else) too.

WW..Have u tried search box "fuel tank delamination"? Also Ford Diesel Fuel Tank

FWIW..I recall reports back in 09. One probably had better chance of getting fixed under 3/36mo. but, claiming fuel related=grey area. What are your options at this time if u want to keep this truck? For argument sake my guess is YOU pay to get it fixed & get er back OTR again. I agree its a lousey $$$ situation. Good luck!

Aren't the fuel tanks plastic? I believe my '04 is? What I would do? Drain fuel, clean HFCM, replace fuel filters, blow back fuel line to tank. Replace tank. Cost, under $1000, (dealer) under $500 (yourself). Realistically, I don't see how they could come ANYWHERE near that cost for a tank replacement.

What a bunch of azz holes answering something they know nothing about ! The 40 gallon tanks that are mounted on the cab and chassis trucks behind the rear axle are metal and they ALL delaminate sucking the lining or rust depending on the year thru the fuel pump thru the filters and into the injectors. The fuel pump will burn up once the screens are clogged and the fuel filters are to large of a micron to catch all the pieces so they go thru to the injectors. It will trash the injectors on a 6.0 but the 7.3 could go either way. Most of the time Ford will not help out on these tanks ! They will start off saying that you ran bio fuel thru them and the tank only has a b 10 rating stating that the bio fuel has caused the seperation. Make sure you get a fuel sample before your truck goes into the shop. Even the rerplacement tanks without the liner are prone to rusting along with the filler tubes on all the trucks. Or pull your drain plug from your frame mounted fillter housing and see how much of the plug has been eatin away. Ford knows all about this crap and will not stand behind it . You can not even get an answer from Ford on the tanks in the 2011 trucks which is why we statred buying Duramax trucks now ! Now there latest thing is to tell you that the fuel tank must be left full or the vapors will rust the top of the tank out causing rust to do the same thing . Thru the filter to the injectors and if the injectors pass this where does it go ???? Ford will get you for a new tank , fuel pump, back flush the injection system and new injectors. Show me where any other truck manufactor is having this same problem ??? Your diesel tank goes bad from putting diesel in it ! How is the for qaulity is job one ? Any machine can have problems , its how the company stands behind them. Ford wont so after buying a truck per year from them we are done !
