    My truck runs rough when on 1st start in the morning (Cold), Finally convinced dealer to pull codes, has a miss logged. Looks like a an injector. I did not think it would log coded.... BUT hey, they are very advanced.

    I assume you did not have a CEL?

    Still doesn't fix the concern! Mine is going in tonight, so they can cold start in the Tuesday morning for more diagnostics.

    6 trips to 3 different service departments, 4 TSB updates and 12K miles since I bought my Ranger in February. I paid over $1200 out of my pocket to have the injectors replaced. Finally my truck runs like it should. No CELs so Ford wouldn't believe me or in their words, "throw parts at it". I'm turning it over to my attorney. Let the games begin!

    Well after day one the truck was not started until it was 100 degrees and they said it ran fine but logged more miss codes, I asked how can it run fine if is is missing.

    Today they said there is pressure in the radiator and coolant in #4 cylinder... Now they have to wait for heavy line to diagnose it. They did offer a rental car, I told them I bought a truck because I need a truck...... nothing back on getting a truck.

    Hoping this is isolated. Mine runs a little rough from a cold start on rare occasions.

    The is the exact response from the Local dealership:

    Hi Daniel, Vehicle did not miss on start up however misfire count indicated cylinder 4 dropping lower than the others, with minimum run time (about 1 minute) turned off vehicle and removed coolant cap and felt pressure release, this is a sign compression is getting past the head gasket into the coolant passages, removed spark plug #4 and inspected with bore scope, found signs of coolant in combustion chamber 4, recommend heavy line diag.

    I will be working on getting this further diagnosed as quickly as possible, as this moment I have no real time frame to offer, it is a few days wait due to the techs are on jobs already, I will see if I can get this at least looked at before then. In the meantime I can put you in a rental, I have called Enterprise to see if they had any trucks available, and they do not. Let me know what addressee to send Enterprise to, and they will pick you up, Regards,

    its not Fords fault about the rental truck.
    however if Enterprise cant supply the vehicles Ford requests, then that relationship/contract should be evaluated.

    good luck on getting a fix soon. sounds like it was steves first day in the engine assembly line and he goofed.

    Correct the the rental car, but the reason for the need does belong to Ford. Ford Customer Service is working it.
    I have no complaint with the dealership on this, but I need a truck at the moment, I am letting the system work.
