Rumor about a tuned 6.4 and being denied warrenty

So I heard that a guy who has a Spartan blew his head gaskets and FOMOCO told the dealer to send them the files and they aren't going to warranty the work??

This is a Friend of a friend (so there may be other variables) and I guess the guy was yelling and screaming at Ford in regards to how long the work was taking so they be just looking for something

So IF there is any truth behind the story what file would they ask for? and how would they know?

Goes to show you that if you act like an :***. They will go out of their way to get you. I had no problems when they did my HG. He11. Everyone knows they even put the Elite studs in for me. They know I'm tuned and told me that they would NEVER deny my warranty there. Treat them with respect and dont lie to them and everything will work out. No one is buying trucks like they were even 6mnths ago. Some dealerships, the warranty work is fattening up their bottom line allowing them to stay afloat and not lay anyone off.

Lets just say not quite stock.

Thats because Warranty work is the only way these dealerships are surviving right now, i have a buddy that owns a Ford Dealership and he says that his service department is the only thing keeping him afloat

I would think that it would be best to put your truck back to stock and take it in. Still always treat them the way you want to be treated. I wouldn't tell them that it is tuned. That will just give them something to look for.

I dont think most dealers really care if your tuned right now. As long as your still giving them business. Weve bought quite a few fords at our local Ford dealership, so i doubt they will give us any trouble.

I agree with the repsect thing

Like I said I don't know for sure what is going on but I will know more in a week or so.

I am still curious on what file they would want and what the file will tell them if anything... ?

I think the key statement is "screaming and yelling". If anyone came into my place of work and did that. They would be shown the door and it would be my mission to screw them over. Not by doing anything bad. Just to find something legit to really stick it to them. Denying warranty would be a good way to do it. Lesson learned.

Brent. How did you make out. Good I hope....
