Yah I picked it up this past Wed. Looks like it was the water pump. It was covered on my extended warranty so all I had to do was pay my deductible. And..... They didn't charge me for the tow..... If anyone is looking for a great Ford dealer definitely check our Vista ford in oxnard. It's where I purchased the truck and it's the only place I will take my truck even though it's so far from my home....

Out of curiosity, on a newer rig like yours if the water pump starts gushing coolant through the "indicator hole" (which should normally seep when the bearing is on its way out, but can fail completely) can you pull the trick of effectively plugging the hole to get you off the trail?
