I also agree the thread needs to be closed. Some of you that just have to get 1-up, need to grow up - mentally.

The truck is still at the dealer. So far they have it down to one bad EGT sensor and possibly a plugged DPF. Still waiting. Hopefully I will have the whole story in a day or two.

The topic got kind of sidetracked so I did not post last night.

Those two can be related.

If EGT reads too low, the engine keeps pumping extra fuel into the DPF to "burn" hotter until it becomes over-rich, and rather than generating heat alone, generates more carbon and plug the DPF, resulting in exactly the kind of shutdown you experienced.

If this theory is right, you should have experienced a sharp drop in fuel economy immediately before it failed.

Was the regen light on?



Lets see what they say next.


Oh.. emissions warranty.

Actually dspencer.........it's kinda funny when you think about it.

This morning "Team Mod" closed a thread about the Ridgeline after only 2 pages because a few members were beating up on it a bit, even though still on topic.

Ridge Thread

But because this post is about the Ford HPFP, I'll bet it runs up into 50 pages like all the other HPFP threads regardless of how far it strays of course.

You are very correct Gman22 it is kind of funny the way a select few of the immature people on here has to bash the other makes. I am actually in the car business and they all have the good points and bad points. It doesn't matter if its one of the Big 3 or an import model.

And choosing which major brand is like choosing which set of problems you want to have.

All the major makes have achieved a level of competence, reliability and excellence unheard of 20 years ago.

And they all are still getting better with time.


Those who bash other brands are likely very dissatisfied customers of their current product.... and this is a way to make themselves feel better.

No, it wasn't on topic. It was a thread about tow vehicles in the TOWING forum... I suppose they could've just moved it but all it was, was a bash-fest that was quickly circling the drain anyway...
