The Ford diesel truck production shutdown that resulted from stopped diesel engine shipments from International is over. On Feb. 23, Navistar International stopped sending 6.4-liter diesel engines that Ford uses in its F-250, F-350 and F-450 Super Duty pickups to Ford's Louisville, Ky., truck plant. That plant stopped production on Friday and operated on fewer shifts over the weekend. Now that the engine shipments are back on, a Ford spokeswoman told the AP that the plant is back up to full speed by next Monday, according to USA Today.
As we mentioned, this dispute is over payments to International that Ford withheld because of warranty claims on International's 6.0-liter diesel engines. In court last week, the judge told the two companies to work things out. A Navistar spokesman told the AP that they just want to be paid.
