Ford f450 6.4-high pressure fuel pump failure

I would like your opinion on the following:I have an '08 Ford F450 6.4 ltr with less than 35,000,miles. Ford mechanics tell me that the high pressure fuel pump failed, causing diesel fuel to leak into the crank case. Normal level in oil tank is 3 gal, when they emptied it there was +5 gal. Ford maintains no bearing damage. Do you think diesel in the oil would cause viscosity breakdown and damage to the bearings? I need a foot to stand on in my fight with Ford.

    I have an 2008 F450 6.4L with 19K miles.  During routine oil change, dealer found 5 extra quarts of fluid in crankcase when draining.  Said it was diesel.  Dealer says diesel is from regeneration cycle not completing each time.  Evidently I have to drive the truck until the "Cleaning Exhaust Filter" notification completes, no matter that it takes longer than my trips to complete.  If I am unable to drive until regeneration is complete, the extra diesel will continue to build up again.  Ford says its "Normal".  I do have the ESP but am worried about failure while towing at altitude and under heavy load. Can't believe Ford would build an engine that has to be driven a certain length of time or it mixes the fuel and the oil--just does not make any sense.  Please advise.

    As long as you did not lose hydrostatic lubrication, you should be ok. However, for piece of mind, I would ask for an ESP Plan that covers your engine with a deductible up to 100K. If it's going to fail a bearing, it will long before 100K.

I would like to clarify, and somewhat solve this issue. First of all the dealer is right about the regen. If the truck is going into regen and did not finish, then it will do the regen again and again and this excessive regen will cause fuel in the oil. Unfortunatly Ford did not add a parked Regen switch (too complicated for some users) so you will have to drive untill the regen light goes out. I know it's inconventant but that's part of the hassel you need to go through because Al Gore invented the internet and then warned us all about global warming. Anyway there are some other causes including porous cylander heads (this will show up in low mileage vehicles only), HP Fuel pumps, fuel sensors, injectors, lines, etc. etc. Since you both seem to have low mileage ask the Ford Dealer about the porous cyl heads and watch his face go blank. Is smoke comes out of his ears make sure his DPF isn't clogged and ask him if he needs to Regen. then tell him he has to run 30 mintues weither he likes it or not or he will get fuel in his oil. By the way you may also need to ask about an updated ECM reflash which could help this issue. Have a nice day.

How to take off a fuel pressure regulator on a 2000 ford excursion


bleed off pressure by disconnecting wiring from inertia switch or pull fuse for the pump, start engine till it stalls. pressure will be zero.
pressure regulator is on fuel rail. They seldom go. If you are losing pressure overnight or low pressure ( below 40 psi), it is likely the check valve in the fuel pump in the tank.

1998 damon intruder fuel pump issues?


I have a 96 which had issues with the original ford pump at 28,000 miles. It would shut down after about 200 miles of continuous running in the high elevations. Col, and Wyom. Solution was to replace ford gear fuel pump with an after market turbin pump. According to the tech from the western states that this is common with high alt. and high temp running. ( have not had a problem new pump)

2008 Ford F450 fuel pump relay fuse keeps blowing.


the fuel pump and radio are not on the same circuit, most liokely the fuel pump is shorted, that is the most common cause, get under the truck and disconnect the fuel pump connector at the tank, if the fuse doesn't blow then u need a new pump.

Check fuel pressure at fuel rail. Must have 45-50 PSI. There is also a fuel pump on the frame before the engine and after the fuel tanks. POPING occurs with lean fuel mixture or crossed plug wires.

High pressure oil pump leak.


the high pressure pump provides the pressure to your injectors so the diesel luel can be injected at high pressure. You should fix this immediately. Call your dealer and ask for some help from Ford on the repair cost ahead of the repair. See what they will do.
