FORD F250 | THE “Y” PIPE HAS FAILED TWICE, ALLOWING EXHAUST TO ENTER THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. | AZALEA,OR | 1995

THE “Y” PIPE HAS FAILED TWICE, ALLOWING EXHAUST TO ENTER THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. FIRST TOOK IT TO AN OUT OF TOWN DEALER WHO SAID HE DID NOT HAVE PARTS TO FIX BUT WARNED ME TO KEEP FRESH AIR COMING INTO THE CAB.. THE LOCAL DEALER REPLACED ONCE AND THE SECOND TIME SAID IT WAS NO LONGER COVERED AND BESIDES DID NOT KNOW HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEM. SUGGESTED I TAKE IT TO A PRIVATE MUFFLER SHOP WHO TOLD ME THAT FORD WAS WELL AWARE OF THE PROBLEM, THAT IT WAS DANGEROUS BECAUSE IT WOULD LEAK CARBON MONOXITE INTO THE CAB AND SUGGESTED I TAKE IT BACK TO THE DEALER AND PUSH FOR A REPLACEMENT. DEALER GAVE ME A FORM TO FILL OUT BUT HAVE NEVER HEARD BACK. I TOOK VEHICLE TO ANOTHER DEALER, AND THEY TOLD ME A SIMILAR STORY AND SAID IF IT WAS A CALIFORNIA VEHICLE FORD WOULD STAND BY IT, BUT BECAUSE IT WAS NOT, I WOULD HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A MUFFLER SHOP AND HAVE A CUSTOM ONE BUILT. THEY ALSO WARNED ME TO BE CAREFUL TO KEEP AIR COMING IN THRU THE HEATER/AC SO I WOULD NOT GET CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING AND/OR FALL ASLEEP.
