Bent rods for sure,possible broken piston ring lands and rings,bent crank. They should be buying you a new short block. GET A LAWYER! With labor it sounds like the claim is to big for small claims court. TOTAL INCOMPETENCE to over fill and then start an engine.quote:Originally posted by daugusto:
can anyone HELP?! I have a 2005 Ford Powerstroke 6.0l diesel that just had an entire upper engine rebuild and we dropped it off at the dealer for a FICM. Not only did they fail at the computer changeout, but for some crazy reason they overfilled my motor by 2.5 gallons of oil, started it, then it hydraulocked, then they forced it with a pry bar, then they re-started and it has loud knocking internal damage. Uhh...no kidding! Can anyone give me some info to help prove to the dealer that his people made a huge mistake, whether it's reading a simple dipstick or just plain stupidity. This is black and white, cut and dry, we know what they did because they told us. I just would like some info regarding what happens when you completely overfill a high compression diesel motor with oil, start it up then force it after it locks up. I would really appreciate some news. Thanks everyone!
