Got this e-mail from a friend, don't have an answer. How can a buy back be re-sold? Are just the issue's addressed or is the total engine replace and the vehicle is re-sold?

If its just the tops blowing off the injectors, they should only be replaced (not bought back), could it be an injector bore issue?

Any-one have any answers?

Hey Adam, maybe you would know the answer to this question. A friend of mine is looking at a buy-back vehicle that is again out for re-sale.
It's a 6.0L engine and was bought back beacuse of the injector issue.
Question; Are the engines changed before they are re-sold or are just the updated parts installed, engine checked and then released again for sale to the public?


Thanks Adam and have a great holiday!!!

I have had several trucks that seem to blow the injectors apart like that, hell after they buy um back they should make the fukers that designed that pos drive um for demos ........

I do understand the top pop-ing off, but can that be a "BUY-BACK" issue?

It's not a long block issue, I need to get more info on this vehicle that is being re-sold and is a buy-back...

LEM talk to me, you have a dealership!!! What's this all about?

Sorry for blowing off guys, I should be thankfull lol.


I'm not sure but i think in OK is has to be in the shop for x amount of working days or a repeat repair like 5 times for the same thing to be considered a buyback. Its a messy deal for sure.

The injector screws pop off allowing the halves to seperate, it seems to not be a common problem, but the trucks that have it fail it seems all the injectors do it and not all at once. I would think it more of a vendor issue with the injector or somthing. After the injector is replaced it never seems to fail like that again.

Ok my Oasis is done. :lol:

Re: 6.0

That is why I am now towing with a Duramax, feels weird but it gets me there.
That's why I still own my 95 & 97 7.3 PSD
:p

You can beat the snot out of them and they still keep going.


No way I would trade either one mine for a POS 6.0

My brother had his 03 6.0 bought back. He told me that the truck went back to Ford & was not to be resold. But who knows what Ford will do with them afterwards. I would be cautious on buying one of the buy backs now.

I may have been wrong, I would think they would make an ashtray out of the sucker rather than pass it along to someone else.

A buy back is a truck or car that has a prob and gets sent back 4 times. They buy it back and fix it. New motor or what ever it needs. The dealer has to have you sign that you know it is a buy back and tell you what is wrong with the truck. They also put on a warnty on the truck. They tend to be better warntys than it came with stock.

They can be some of the best buys out there. They keep the price down for you, and put the warnty on it as well.

I used to sell cars for ford. :D

I think it just depends on each states laws. I know in Mississippi if the vehical has to go back for the same type repairs for 3 times it qualifies for the lemon law.

So, if the truck had injector issues and all they did was replace the faulty injector and took weeks to do it. (Due to a bad or slow service department) Then another injector and another I could see how it would be bought back.

I remember a lot of folks complaining once that Ford wouldn't replace all the injectors when they started having problems. Unlike Gm, they supposedly would only replace the injectors in sets. (just from what I read)

I correct myself.....I just made a call and they are just as mustang67 said,The company I was talking about has a contract with Ford and repairs the car or truck using only Ford parts then it gets decided on what warrenty they will put back on the car or truck.Sorry for the mixup. Timothy Blair
