2004 Ford F150 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 114000 miles
My husband has been driving, once a week, to a construction job about 2 1/2 hours away. About 4 months ago he noticed that after driving about 2 hours his truck lost power and started chugging and only able to go around 20mph. He took it to a local shop, in the town he is working in, and they said it was probably the fuel pump so they replaced it for about $600.00. The truck seemed to work fine for about a month and then started doing it again. He took it back and they said it was probably a faulty fuel pump and replaced it again (no charge). This past weeked it did it again, worse than before. He can't even drive it down there now to have them look at it so he had to take it to a place up here. They just called him and said that the other shop didn't use a "factory" fuel pump and that was the problem. They are putting in a "factory" pump and doing a tune-up at a cost of $1100.00! My husband needs this truck for work and we are in a bind! Does this make any sense to you? Is it necessary that it has a "factory" pump? How can we claim any of our original money back, for the shop 2 1/2 hours away, if they indeed used a pump that wasn't "factory" Please help. Thanks Jill
