DPF theif!!!!!

This past friday night i was out driving around and out to dinner with my girlfriend. we got back around 10. come saturday morning when i went to leave for a family party i went to start my truck and it sounded funny and lights showed up and it started idling rough. i wasnt sure what was wrong with it and my friend who works on these things came over and finally looked under the truck and found some of my sensors were unpluged and the exhasut was cut right before the flange on the dpf and cat. seems to me as someone knows what they are doing and tried to steal this thing or just doesnt like me much. we got a 4inch id/od connector and hooked it back up and its fine, but im not sure what to do as far as ford goes. I havnt called them yet or let police know...figured i would get some good ideas from you guys first. let me know

I don't know how ford's warranty fits into this. But I would have called the police just to get a police report that I could show to the dealer, as proof that someone did really try to steal my dpf. That way they don't think its a mod gone wrong or something.

I know of a major fleet that had over $100,000 woth of cats and DPFs stolen in one weekend.

Fortunately, the DPFs are serialized, so whomever turns it in can be arrested for possession of stolen property.

Ford ain't going to care about the police report but your insurance company should get a copy of it in case of related problems down the road!

they are price range of 1000 - 1500 hundred dollars new so i could imagine a junkyard would be willing to pay 200-400
