I'll check when I get home (biking to work...), but I'm sure I read that in the "addendum warranty manual for diesel." Whichever of us gets to it first should post the answer here, and note the vehicle date; am not sure it is valid for older 6.0s.

I tent to buy extended warranties, only from the manufacturer, on cars. So far I believe I have always made money (including one on a Ford, albeit a Taurus). Plus it buys you a certain amount of peace of mind. I also have a Toyota Prius and bought one for it because of all the hybrid stuff. We'll see if that pays off.

Extended Warranty

Hello All,

If you're considering purchasing a Ford Extended Warranty, I would highly recommend that you contact Jay Minto at San Francisco Ford (formerly S&C Motors) at (415) 431-8100 ext 327, expect to leave a message (which Jay promptly returns). Jay handles supplying the Ford chassis' to SMB, so he is quite familiar with your rigs.

Jay is probably one of the nicest people you'll ever have the pleasure to do business with, and a great resource if you have a problem at a Ford dealership and need some assistance. While most dealerships have a hefty mark-up on extended service contracts, Jay sells the Ford contract at $200 over his cost.

Thanks,
John K.

Page 7 of my 2006 Warranty guide has the following for 6.0L Diesels:

Engine and engine components are covered for 5 years / 100,000 miles, but after the standard 36,000 mile coverage you have to pay $100 deductible for each repair visit.

This 'extended' coverage covers the engine and cylinder block, heads and all internal parts, intake and exhaust manifolds, timing, valve covers, oil pan and pump, water pump, fuel system except lines and tank, high pressure lines, gaskets and seals, glow plugs, turbocharger (!!!!), PCM, ECU, injectors and injection pressure sensor, high pressure oil regulator, exhaust back pressure regulator and sensor, camshaft position sensor, accel switch.

And, of course, it notes the usual if you screw with the exhaust or intake system they'll ensure that they fight you tooth and nail to pay you nothing.

Anyway, the point is that if you're thinking of the extended warranty due to the engine cost and turbo issues only, and you have a new enough vehicle to be covered by this, then perhaps you might think twice, since a lot of the other crap that is normally covered has been replaced with cool SMB stuff already.

Thoughts? Comments?

Well, I just called S.R. Ford and asked for Jay Minto. Was told that he no longer works there. Any other ideas for a decent deal???

Well I didn't want to post this yet, but I have been in contact with Jay Mento over the last couple of weeks and he said Ford is deciding to possibly drop the extended warrantee on any vehicle that has an aftermarket four wheel drive system. So it might be moot for me anyway. He is to contact me this week on their stance. If Ford does indeed wish to allow the extended warrantee to remain as before I might still want it to cover the tranny but I definately will think it over before taking the plunge.

Well after I sent out the last post Jay Mento called. Ford no longer offers an extended warranty on ANY aftermarket 4WD conversion by any company including Quigley. This went all the way to the top at Ford. He also confirmed that the diesel does have 5 year/100K mi warranty so this really affects the folks with gas engines. He also didn't think it was worth it for diesel owners. Now I got 2000 bucks to do some upgrades that won't affect the warranty. Pirometer and tranny temp gauges sounds good
