RE: Fords 6.7 Scorpion Diesel motor

1Longbow, Keep in mind that of all the negative nancy's posting in this thread, only two of them actually owned the 6.7L Powerstroke, the rest are just continually spewing stuff they read online. It's a common agenda for these posters on this forum. :h I do hope one of those two is me. I owned one from 2011 until September of this year. Yes and ricatic is the other. The rest like to run their mouths about stuff they have only read about and have no true experience like they are experts on the subject. experts... LOL Am I an expert? No! I just call out the BS as I see it. Hey mouth piece... If you think I have no skin in the game, you are dead wrong... I own 2 Touareg TDI's with Bosch CP4.2 HPFP's in them. I also owned a 2012 passat tdi with a Bosch CP4. NHTSA and their file a complaint is on my speed dial on my smart phone. All I am going to need to see is a P0087 "Low Fuel rail pressure code" show up on my Torque App, and then the T25 bit comes out and the pressure sensor on my Bosch HPFP comes off to look inside for metal bits and shavings. If those two items show up, NHTSA is going to hear from me about how unsafe this vehicle in stalling on me in rush hour traffic. So glad you are capable of diagnosing your own failures, instead of getting a snow job from the service manager at any dealership you go to, or worse yet, getting hit for deductible out of pocket when the dealership weasels out on warranty work. I hope I never have to get a new HPFP due to failure, but I run a pinch of biodiesel in every fillup, since I took delivery brand new, day 1, in every one of them. Oh and here's the facts... I've seen in excess of 10 of these pumps, apart, in and out of failed VW TDIs, held the failed pumps in my hand. This one out of a Touareg. I've dissected a few of them also. Some of us walk the walk, the rest of you are in the dark. FACT. Until you do failure analysis, you're just another blue oval koolaid drinking fanboi. Just calling it as I see it. One day, it might be your turn for a tow job and a 2 to 3 week wait. Come back then, and tell us about it, when it's your turn. I see...6.7L? Nope. Check. Another "expert" what? And who is the fanboi? Have I defended Ford here? Nope...just pointing out where the BS is king. And it's deep in this thread...once again. You still don't "get it"... it's not a Ford issue, or a GM issue, or a VW, or Audi or Porsche issue.... They ALL buy a complete black box Common Rail diesel fueling system from Bosch. It's a Bosch problem. They all sub contract out their fueling systems from Bosch. All that matters is that Ford goes to bat for you against Bosch for a warrantied fuel system replacement, or they weasel out of it. Ford's track record with building diesels... 3 attempts now, since Navistar got smart and dumped Ford. 6.0, 6.4, now 6.7. Nothing has changed, when it comes to their engineers designing diesel engines. Cummins track record? Duramax track record? You tell me. Oh, I get it...I just choose to take information from experts versus forum "experts". Ford's track record with building diesels... 3 attempts now, since Navistar got smart and dumped Ford. 6.0, 6.4, now 6.7. Nothing has changed, when it comes to their engineers designing diesel engines. Case in point...you have an hidden agenda along with a lot of others who have posted in the thread. Ricatic however has a well known issue with Ford along with an agenda about it but he has been honest of why his agenda. Sure, I guess those photos a few pages back are a hidden agenda too, right? True lies? Does Ric have to post up his dead HPFP pictures also? Ford made the bed, let them sleep in it.

"Ford's track record with building diesels... 3 attempts now, since Navistar got smart and dumped Ford. 6.0, 6.4, now 6.7. Nothing has changed, when it comes to their engineers designing diesel engines." You sure about this? I am sure that IMHO, it's my belief, as noted by experts that are in the rebuilding diesel motor industry and their pictures and video's of repeated, common failures that keep on reoccuring, such that they can make a business model out of it and be predictive, due to experience. Pictures don't lie. People trying to get warranty work covered is another matter.

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

Not to mention start up idle times in the winter. I usually start it up five minutes before I walk through the gate at work if the temps are below 35*. Probably not a good idea to do so, Don, with a turbo diesel... the turbo needs boost to seal the labyrinth seals on a turbocharger. Best course of action is to start up, idle 10-15 seconds for full oil circulation, and put 'er in gear and drive gently on the acceleration until she's been warmed up to full operating temp on the idiot temp gauge for 5 minutes. Diesels don't warm up just idling, have to put some minor load on them and burn a little bit of fuel, gently, to get them up to temperature. By going easy, I really mean going easy, drive like an 80 year old grandpa off of every stop sign or stop light. ZERO jack rabbit starts, not even 1/8 throttle off of starts. Diesels are cold blooded, period, just have to go super gentle on them when cold. Even if you THINK you are being gentle on them, most folks are not gentle enough in warming them up, too many people in a hurry. Slow it down, the acceleration rates.

RE: Fords 6.7 Scorpion Diesel motor

Fish, I would have to dig all over creation to find it again. But 3 percent IS the correct figure. Based from NHTSA reports on both GM and Ford with the same Bosch pump. Did RAM stay with the Bosch CP3 HPFP for it's inline 6 cylinder 6.7L motor?

RE: pedestal receptacle

I would not have thought this such a frequent problem, but twice now, only at Indiana state parks I have found loose female receptacle in the pedestal. Each was loose enough to burn the spade on my power cord. I replaced it once, but the second time was only two stops later. Do I need to carry a dozen spare ends? I have worked some with electrical receptacles on ranges and dryers, but then I have access to the house breaker box to change out the receptacle. Can't to that here, and by the time I notice the problem (heat) it's usually too late to call the maintenance people to fix. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance. Don't camp in cheap, poorly maintained, shoddy campgrounds with poor electrical outlets. Sounds like your state parks are not up on current maintenance for their pedestals. I full time and it is not just cheap CG's it's all the CG's. Those outlets are used 1,000 times more than what they were made for........ What you are saying is that campers are stupid and abusive to campground equipment, thereby destroying it, in the areas that you camp. Would that be a fair assessment? I don't treat my receptacle on my Honda generator like that, and I've had no problems. BECAUSE I OWN IT AND HAVE PRIDE IN OWNERSHIP. There's your sign. What the hell is your problem?? :? The problem is yours... what do you expect when you rent anything? Abused, plain and simple. Like the maid that wrecked every single electrical outlet she's plugged my vacuum cleaner into, as well as bashing and scraping the paint off the baseboards with the vacuum cleaner as well. It it ain't yours, there's no pride in ownership, no incentive to take care of.

RE: Fords 6.7 Scorpion Diesel motor

I don't even spend much time on PS forums but the times I have recall several CP4.2 failures that Ford was ducking warranty on owners with the "water in fuel" excuse. You rarely hear that on the Dmax forums which I do spend a lot of time on. Aside from the HPFP failures 6.7s had more than a few turbo failures due to ceramic bearings turning to dust. Believe the new turbo on the 15s is suppose to address. Overall I would say the 6.7 is a good motor at least for Ford when you consider their diesel track record for the prior 10yrs. Still wouldn't get me in one though. Did those HPFP failures that Ford was ducking have internal rust? Turbo failures increase with the use of a tuner. Does GM cover HPFP failures that have internal rust? Of course they don't. "Internal rust" has not even been mentioned on the Dmax forums so not sure where you coming up with this info. GM for the most part is warrantying them no questions asked. Can't say that for Ford. If Ford wasn't having turbo issues then why a new turbo after only 3 years? Internal rust has never been mentioned in any VW or Audi HPFP failure that I have read about either. They have found rust in the fuel filter canisters, but not in the pump directly. The fuel/ water filter trap is designed to prevent that from ever happening. What I am saying is that it sounds like somebody lied to cover their aZZ with that write up for that particular HPFP failure R&R job. And there have been many, many, many more HPFP failures in VW's than Fords, and that excuse is pretty much missing from the files for cause of failure. Another big lie was that VW was claiming that there was misfueling, that there was gas in the fuel. NHTSA requested that they support their claim. Next thing you know, every time your VW or Audi came in for the free oil and filter changes, at 10, 20 and 30k miles, VW/Audi swiped a quart of fuel out of your fuel tank for analysis, without your permission or telling you, for sampling, without compensation. They kept on looking for gas in diesel fuel samples, and embarrassingly, they had to show the results to NHTSA and Bosch as well, and all of their testing for gas in diesel fuel pretty much came back negative. Next thing they did was campaign with bright yellow decals and a rosette ring around the filler cap, because they felt the owners were too stupid to differentiate diesel from gasoline during fillups. Then they put stupid devices in the filler necks that would only allow diesel fuel nozzles, not gasoline nozzles. Guess what? The HPFP's are still failing in Jetta's from 2009 clear through 2014, with all the "safety features" and claims to prevent misfueling with gasoline. You Ford and GM /Chevy people should have something like this going on your Bulletin Boards... Official High Pressure Fuel Pump Failure thread VW has gotten tired with Bosch's claims, they take every single pump back to Bosch, document everything, load these pumps by the pallet for shipment back to Germany. VW letter of intent. You can bet Vw is making Bosch eat it $$$$ wise on these fuel system failures due to Bosch not doing failure analysis before selling the pump to countries will low lubricity fuel standards like in the USA and Canada. Most of the fuel in Europe has wear scar figures of 200- 320 microns, USA, 520 micron (much bigger from fuel with far less lubricity) wear scar figures. Bosch introduced this pump to USA, claiming suitability, fully knowing the lubricity standards of the petroleum industry in the USA and claimed "suitability of use". All of this is on Bosch.

RE: UPDATE! Picking up the 2015 Eco-Diesel Friday/Saturday! :)

Re. mpg. I'm getting an mpg less, maybe a little worse, than I was during the Spring-Fall. Winter diesel I suppose. Re. Ecodiesel badge. Leave it on. It causes envy wherever you go. This is normal, with any diesel. Air density is higher/thicker due to colder air in the winter, and it takes your motor and drive train a lot longer to get up to normal operating temperatures in the winter. All of these are increased drag and take more fuel consumption.

RE: Fords 6.7 Scorpion Diesel motor

I have no idea what happened in Ricatic's case. But we are hearing only one side of the issue. I'm not saying that he is wrong but that we just don't know. I followed it as it was posted here. But I have not heard many others saying they had the same problem. There was a period when some people reported problems but since then I don't recall hearing any. Maybe Ford started dealing better with the issue. Like most others here I haven't had any major problems, the truck just went over 50K about half of that was towing our 5ver. Would it help you to know that Ricatic is NOT the only member here on the forum to have his 6.7L Ford fuel pump destroy itself????? There is another. I private messaged this individual. Ford, as with Ricatic, first attempted to deny this fellow warranty coverage. Claiming contaminated fuel, rust and so on. But this one got lucky. He had an ace in the hole. Seems just before his debacle with Ford, he had taken his vehicle into the Ford dealership and had both fuel filters changed. Since it was found on the Ford service records, they had painted themselves into a corner. So they in fact warranted this failure. Mind you, this is a terrible ratio to have from the very small number of folks who post here to have two documented failures. And this second subject was Canadian, running mostly if not all the better lubricity quality Canadian diesel fuel. Despite all this, I remain convinced that if, IF Ford and Bosch have solved the CP 4.2 fuel pump problems in the latest (2015) and forward versions of the motor, it will be an excellent motor. There IS supposed to be a difference in the fuel pumps in the 2015's, exactly what I do not know. I know NHTSA has become involved with the VW and Bosch CP 4.1 pump. My fear is that someday we are going to hear about someone's Ford stalling while in the on ramp of a freeway and an 80,000 pound semi going right through their tailgate. It surely could happen, as it appears there is absolutely no warning of this about to happen until your motor stalls and your CEL light on the dash comes on. Oh, and some may have noticed, but I no longer own my 6.7L Ford diesel. No problems, but I surely have a little more piece of mind driving around the country far from home now. NHTSA is involved in both the CP4.1 and CP4.2 HPFP, as used in any Vee series motor... Be it the 3.0L V6TDI motor in 2009-2015 VW Touareg, Audi Q5 and Q7, A6, A7 and A8, as well as the Porsche Cayenne Diesel, and includes the V8 diesels in both GMC Chevy and Ford V8 3/4 ton and larger truck diesels. It is also in the RAM 1500 Ecodiesel motor too from 2014 on

RE: Fords 6.7 Scorpion Diesel motor

Not likely I had a GM before I got a Ford. That was before they became government motors Do yourself a favor, Google up "Bosch CP 4HPFP failure" and read every piece you come across. Then get back to us... the only manufacturer that is owning up to the issue is GMC / Chevrolet, which is why you hardly see or hear a peep out of customers on the internet about GMC / Chevrolet. Because they pretty much warranty it, no questions asked, even though they've had failures. If you read a bit more, you'd also know that Ricatic has a neighbor that was a former employee of Bosch, that knows the story. He no longer works for Bosch, probably a feeling of guilt working for such a crappy company when it comes to warranty repairs and owning up to it. Volkswagen of America sends their wasted, failed HPFP's back to Bosch for remanufacturing, by the pallet. That's correct, by the pallet. No correction or changes to design. BTW, in the beginning, Bosch had a huge dirt contamination problem during assembly, with steps in QC being skipped, the micron size of the dirt or material from finish machining not being removed before final assembly, sometimes causing failure on the first tank of diesel fuel in VW sedan models, golf, jetta, jetta sportswagen, and Beetle, as well as the Audi A3.

Maybe Ford started dealing better with the issue. Like most others here I haven't had any major problems, the truck just went over 50K about half of that was towing our 5ver. I have researched the Bosch CP4.2 debacle in every truck, SUV and sedan that it is installed in in the USA here. You can do a search on NHTSA 11003 EA for Engineering Analysis. I've pretty much read everything every manufacturer that uses this HPFP has had to provide, except the redacted portions of communications. The Bosch HPFP has a design defect, IMHO. Don't rev the motor hard or high, you'll float the pistons and rollers in that HPFP, and the following roller will float and lose alignment with the cam, and then your problems start and end with failure. IMHO, it is a defective design. Bosch's claim of self aligning is pure BS, it's such a problem that VW did a hush hush and had Delphi redesign the HPFP in a smaller verson with a rectangular following foot for the piston bore, versus a round one, that is problematic with the Bosch design. Delphi DFP 6 HPFP link The Delphi system The standard line from Ford, or VW, or Audi, or Porsche is that "Your fuel is contaminated". Of course it's contaminated, ask them to specify what it is contaminated with, and that you demand that they show you the contamination that CAUSED the failure, not contamination as a RESULT of the failure. It's contaminated with bits of metal from a Bosch HPFP that ate itself alive while failing. Metal Swarf, like the pump is a machine shop cutting metal. All Bosch material that contaminated your whole complete fuel system, with no way of getting it all out and recontaminating your new HPFP again, unless you replace everything that metal swarf loaded contaminated diesel fuel touched. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v374/grand_toots/TD%20V6HPFPfailure/035.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v374/grand_toots/TD%20V6HPFPfailure/040.jpg VW, AUDI, and Ford have used the deny, deny, deny tactic, to pad their bottom line. Do yourself a favor, pay the core charge to keep that HPFP and take it you your attorney if you feel like suing, you'll need it as evidence. Might have to pay for some time of a Failure Analysis Engineer to testify, but you'll hand Ford their walking papers and set a precedent for future losses when they deny it. Also, file a Complaint with NHTSA if you ever lose a HPFP on you 2011 or later ford 6.7 diesel, and reference EA11003, to be added to the Bosch pump list of failures.

RE: Fords 6.7 Scorpion Diesel motor

I had one...lot's of power, pulled my fiver fine and was a nice truck for 35000 miles...then the sad truth about Ford and it's diesels raised its ugly head...the truck just stopped one day and would not restart...after 3 failed attempts to fix it,it was determined the HPFP ate itself... the dealer needed an out for all his wasted time so a fabricated "water in fuel" diagnosis fixed that...and me...even after completely refuting the WIF claim at a different dealership, Ford still stuck me with a non-warranty repair that cost over $10,000.00...thus no more Fords for us...and about 175 others that saw my plight and bought something else...Good Job Ford... Shameful treatment of a lifelong customer to save face for a crooked Ford dealership...the Blue Koolaid Crowd will claim "it's not Ford, it's the crooked dealership"...bull puckey...Ford World HQ called me to personally deny the coverage... Shame on Ford... Regards It's a Bosch problem, all vehicles with a Bosch CP4.1 for an inline 4 or CP4.2 for a V-6 or V-8 engine, VW, Audi, Ford, Chevy, GMC, they all have failed catastrophically, grenading the whole fuel system, and everything that the fuel touches. Bosch failed to do failure analysis on this pump model. Quite convenient how much money they make in parts on a failure, it's obscene. Of course, Ford too, profits on this failed venture, huge mark up on all the fuel injection and fuel system parts ruined.

RE: B&D VEC1093DBD vs Mega Watt S-350-12

I’m still getting to know the B&D VEC1093-BDB that I bought recently. If others are getting 14.8 or so volts maximum, I wonder whether there may be differences in different editions of the same model charger. After charging the batteries with the on-board Heart inverter/charger recently, I took advantage of a good weather day yesterday to top-charge with the VEC1093. On the house batteries, I set it at the 40-amp rate and it wasn’t long before it started tapering the amps input. I can’t recall that I checked the voltage with the initial charging. When it had tapered to the point where I was sure it was in Absorption mode, I found it was feeding the batteries 15.3-something volts. I got the same result with 2 different digital voltmeters. After 2.5 hours it had finished with top-charging 4 Deka Group 27 dual-purpose batteries. I switched it to the chassis batteries. It immediately tapered the amps to a very small rate. Voltage was again 15.3-something. It declared the chassis batteries FUL within 10 minutes. I did not run the Recondition or Equalize mode on either set of batteries. Wayne Wayne, now go measure the specific gravity of every cell on every battery, write it down, and post it up here, on your fully top charged Deka batteries off. You are looking for all cells to be 1.275 or slightly better. Specific Gravity always trumps what voltage the batteries are taking when you shut the BD off.

Don't blame the builders exclusively. They obtained the construction approvals and permits from the city.

What is being talked about here is property in the county, not in the city... being developed.
