Took them four days to nail that bugger as the problem. The witched plugs and coils, misfire did not follow but stayed on #6 with three others misbehaving as well. Trouble with checking the fuel filter is that it is in the tank with the pump. All of which is loaded from the top of the tank, meaning the levelling jacks get dropped before dropping the tank. Shop foreman called it right in my mind (Northside Ford in Portland) and Ford agreed with authorization to replace from pump to injectors. That is getting down to almost the last thing that could cause all the trouble. Now, engine runs just great. Not the fight starts with Ford on a buggered 8 day vacation of which 6 days spent with Ford.

There is no authorization from Ford for fuel pump replacement and injectors. That is the dealers call to make. There are some prior approval components like engine and transmission assemblies but it also depends on whether the dealer is on the naughty list or not that requires prior approval.

Chassis was still under warranty. My understanding, even with GM, that prior to that much equipment would need some sort of prior approval. It was Ford in Detroit who paid this bill.

Not at all. As I said above some items are under a prior approval process where the tech needs to send in diag information to the Hotline to request an approval code for replacement of that part. But gas fuel injectors, fuel pumps are not on that list and I don't ever recall ever seeing them on the prior approval list. I used to be on the prior approval team at Ford for some powertrain components. Now ESP extended service contracts usually have a per line dollar limit before the dealer needs to call in. But it does not appear to be the case with your circumstance.

Ha ha I hear ya, Northside seemed like a pretty up front garage, but bottom line is it got fixed and I didn't pay for it
