3 bad injectors

My son in-law is a mechanic for a service company and they have 3 new 08 6.4s, and at 150 miles the 6.4/6spd 2wd service truck was on its way to a job and quit, so they towed it to the dealer, it had 3 bad injectors. He says the other 6.4s are running fine. Just figured I'd let you guys know. :Thumbup:

Anything is possible, and fuel cleanliness is CRITICAL to any DCR engine, so dirt could easily explain three injectors on the same vehicle.

i dont see how you instantly think its a rumor....on a brand new engine it has a good chance of having problems.

The injectors seem to be a hit or miss deal, but that is what a warranty is there for. Other members on other boards seem to be having these issues as well.

I must hand it to Ford though, they are replacing the injectors without giving the customers a hassle about it. Another thing that could be causing it is in certain places, the ULSD may still have some residual LSD in the tanks...and until its all cleared out, we may see these issues for a bit.

You never get the full story. Maybe someone accidentally put gasoline in the tank, bad fuel, maybe even a fuel additive that scored the injectors. Or it could be a factory defect.

The problem with these stories is we rarely get the full story.

True Duke...but one of my friends from FTE is stuck in New Orleans right now without his 08 because of injectors...So far its only one injector, and I hope for his sake that its only that one. In his case it would just be bad factory injectors, versus bad fuel or soemthing.

Well the truck was brand new with 150 miles on it and was filled with fuel and sent on its way, truck quit, they towed it in and the dealer replaced 3 injectors and now it runs fine. the truck had no additives or gasoline, the driver just filled it with fuel and went. I just figured I'd let you guys know some of these trucks are indeed having issues. I was under the impression they were all doing well.
