I wanted to give an update on my upper oil pan reinstall. I purposely took my truck to a Ford truck center with the assumption they were more equipped to do this job...boy was I disappointed. Service writer didn't have a clue nor was communicating accurate information. Suffice it to say I will not be returning during any lifetime. Sorry for the rant.

Here is a picture of the lower oil pan freshly resealed and installed. Cannot see upper pan, but hoping it is good to go. The service manager said he was done more than 18 of these, but mine was the first one using the silicon for the upper oil pan. My wonderful service writer told me they ordered a new upper and lower oil pans, but my paperwork doesn't show that. Service manager is looking into it for confirmation. Other than that, hope no new leaks on the cardboard. Hope everyone is well.

If they cleaned the surfaces well it should last the life of the truck.

Yes, thankfully, the bill was around $2,200...parts and labor.

That is mostly the lower oil pan in his photo. The upper oil pan is basically the bottom third of the engine block. Quite a bit more than a tube of goop.

My mistake. It was $2,697. Glad it was under warranty for sure.

One very expensive leak. Being in California it probably wouldn't pass inspection?

Not sure on that bioburner. It is not a commercial vehicle...rather a RV. Very expensive leak...had to remove transmission to get to the upper oil pan. Ford covered everything. Very fortunate it happened while under warranty.

Some states require all vehicles to pass some sort of inspection. MN had one years ago to address air pollution and lasted about 3 years. Texas requires a pretty loose inspection that I will have to go through this fall on the F350 and the little Transit.
Glad to hear that Ford stood behind it and resolved it.

What was the symptom? Oil dripping?

This was in your 2014 F450?

Wonder if my 2015 could have same issue?

We don't have state inspections for that here. Now you can fail a smog inspection if there is an excessive enough leak to where the person doing the inspection feel it is unsafe to test.

Donald, yes it was on my F550 6.7. It appeared to be leaking from my lower oil pan. It would slowly drip along one side and when level would drip along the bolts of the lower pan. Initially was small drip or 2 over weeks. Lately got worse thus prompting me to take to dealer. Where is yours leaking from?
