Ford wants International to pay costs mostly due to improper diagnostics and repairs that were done two, three or four times (wrong problem, or bad workmanship). We have ALL seen this happen, and know it IS happening.
Proper technician training and following proper diagnostic procedures by FORD dealership techs is NOT the responsibility of International.
International, for it's part, is also going to get FULL PAYMENT from Ford for the 6.4L, which IS why the shipments were stopped. Ford has (always) attempted to muscle it's vendors into accepting payments that are much lower than it agreed to.
