International doesn't agree with Ford diagnostic, need opinions!
So a quick recap:
All winter I've been having cold start issues. I've changed everything you can imagine (Check past threads listed below for details) but nothing helped (not even Rev-X). So I finally took it to the Dealership. They call me back a couple hours ago and said that all 8 injectors were bad and were dropping off, my fuel pressure was reading at 36psi, my water in fuel light was illuminated (Never has before!), and they had to do a manual compression test to see if compression was good. All totaled to $4,361.46. Injectors, I can do myself at a cost of $261.64 each from Ford. So I called International to see if they had them cheaper and when I told them what Ford said, the tech said he had never seen all 8 injectors go bad and that I should not let them change them until other things were ruled out (e.i. Fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, and something else (I can't remember the name). He also said that they can't work on Fords. I ok'd the dealership to do the compression test on the engine and nothing else. Anyone have any feedback on what I should do? I've called and left a message with the guys at powerstrokehelp in Georgia. I live in Huntsville, Al, does anyone know a trustworthy 6.0 mech here that can diagnose this? I just don't know what to do!
