A few weeks ago, my truck died at a stop light and wouldn't restart. Looked at fuel filters because ignition seemed to work and seemed like a fuel system problem. Drained fuel filters, a little water, replaced filters. Still won't start. Bled air out of system. Mechanics hooked it up to Ford computer, no codes. Took out 2 glow plugs, said the two injectors for those cylinders did not spray. Hooked up a new one, and it worked. Today they told me they are thinking contaminated fuel. No warranty if that is the problem, and $6200 bill. Will take any and all thoughts as my day has just been ruined.

Definitely try to track down a receipt or something as there have been several reports that insurance will cover the problem.
Related question, Do you happen to have the 11B23 or later flash? One of the things this flash and later flashes was supposed to help with was water detection.

On one side of the coin, if you have the update(s) then Ford didn't correct the issue of better detection which they said it did.

On the other side, if you didn't have the update, they sent out letters stating that failure to get the update in a timely fashion can result in voiding warranty.

The first one gives you an argument whereas the second one they can use against you. Hopefully it's the first.
True, but the way it's worded it needs to be done as soon as possible to be covered by warranty, after that date it's on you.
