Re: Oil Leak 6.4 super duty build date 8-17-07
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Tailrotor</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Backed the truck out of the garage today and went back in to see two small drops of oil on the floor. Climbed under and looks like it is leaking on the back of the engine high pressure pump cover or above all over the trans bell hosing and dripping from engine oil pan corners. Don't see anyway to fix unless they take cab off or tear turbo's off and top end. If so ford can get me a new truck it will never be the same' I will go to court over this one 50'000 dollar truck and has oil leak at 2700 miles B.S that's what I call here we go again. </div></div>
Look, I am the first one who believes you should not tolerate a leak on a brand new truck. Trust me I have fought that battle with Ford and won, BUT, I think you need to calm a little and let them take a look at it. The VAST majority of the leaks are pretty easy fixes and most competent techs can repair with little "intrusion". Unlike the 6.0 which was plagued with numerous design flaws especially in the bedplate, the 6.4, at least from what I can determine has not had those problems. Relax, take it in ask them to diagnose the issue, then ask them to let you know what is the problem BEFORE they undertake repair and then make your own decision on what to do. It is your truck, no question, but it is up to them to make the warranty decisions and how they are going to repair. Again, just relax, it is probably an easy fix. Good Luck to you.
