If the warranty book that was provided with the owner's manual when you bought the truck says the EGT sensors are covered, they *are* covered. Do not back down, Ford cannot reduce the warranty coverage that they commited to when they sold you the truck.

Mne is in the shop right now, service writer tells me 650.00 for the sensor alone!
I checked online theres a you tube video of one being changed out in about 1hr. Part is readily availble at many deisel parts providers for under 100.00, 57.00 one shop. Its a screw into the DPF on the sensor end and plug it into the harness on the other end!
I guess Ford has forgotten the meaning of the word "Service".
This is straight up robbery!
I may b e missing something, Is there some complex procedure that has to be done to clear the check engine light following replacing one of these?

I'm pretty sure you just swap the new one in and go.

Battery disconnect at most.

The lake is kootenay lake BC, and the boat was a rental.
Ever since that trip we've been looking at similar or slightly larger boats.
It was a steel 35 ft, had sleeping for 4, a kitchen, bathroom, and upper cabin, and burned about a gallon an hour driving 9 knots with a 60 hp isuzu running 1800 RPM.
I'd rather have a slow speed with lots of room, rather than a high speed limited space fuel guzzler.

Ford ended up covering the sensor. They kept arguing that this one sensor wasn't covered. What a joke. Oh well.

Also, the sensor and labor wouldn't have been more than $250.00 If I recall correctly. You can buy the sensors from Ford for $80 I think.

I figured that sky reminded me of the PNW. I spent ten years in Bellingham.
Now I fish out of Monterey Bay here in Sunnny CA.
I get a lot less of those grey skys every year.
I have a 28' sport fisherman with deisel power, Yanmar 315hp. Sips fuel.
Those tug style hulls and low speed deisel power are the way to go. Im with you on that, chug along and enjoy the ride. Hope you find a beauty your certainly in the right spot to find one.

Actually the only thing I was trying to catch was conveniently packed in the cooler on ice, 355 ml at a time.

I used to work commercial fishing, so dangling a hook in the water doesn't have much excitement left in it for me ...

Yep thats what happens when you take an otherwise enjoyable experience and turn it into a business. I'll never fish, Hunt or have sex for money!

I had the same problem with my truck needing a #3 Egt sensor. Ford wouldn't cover it so I replaced it myself. I had a bit of a snag though when it broke off in the pipe during removal. If that happens to you there is a solution on ebay where you can get a replacement threaded egt bung for these now.

Here is the link

http://www.ebay.com/itm/OE-style-exhaust-gas-temp-EGT-sensor-bung-for-Ford-Powerstroke-Diesel-6-4-6-7L-/141039388416


All you need to install a replacement egt bung ^^^ is a mig welder and you'll be set to go. The sensors are available online too and they're not too expensive compared to some of the things that have gone wrong on my last truck with a 6.0
