On Monday 10march2014, my 2012 Ford Explorer started and immediately stalled out, when I look at the dash it had said it had low oil pressure. The vehicle was towed to cavalier Ford in chesapeake, va where it has been determined that the high pressure fuel line and high pressure fuel pump have to be replaced. During further trouble shooting it was discovered that henderson Ford in bay st. Louis, ms had installed a fuel injector into the engine without properly ensuring the cleanliness of either the injector or the point of insertion. It has been determined by cavalier Ford that henderson Ford improperly installed a replacement part, and allowed me to drive over 1,000 miles with this problematic part in place!.
