Truck Sitting in the dealers for 4 days waiting on a part?????

Is it normal to have your f150 sit in the dealers for 4 days now; apparently waiting on a part from Edmonton? Its a control module for fuel system. Ummm, I know that I can get many things sent by the next day. Why is is so different for a ford part coming from the warehouse or are they feeding me a bunch of crap????? We are renting a car that they refered to us from a rental place, its the only reason I can think of that it would make any sense, is if they were making money off the rental somehow?? Or...they are really waiting on the part??!! What do you know/think about this, and how you suggest to handle this either way it may be. Im starting to wonder here????

Thanks for taking the time to help out, feeling a little frustrated!!!!

PS, I just wanna mention that I really hate to think this way, but with so much out there these days, I don't think it hurts to throw it out there and see what others think.

Re: Truck Sitting in the dealers for 4 days waiting on a part?????

Generally a shop will not send parts next day delivery, usually I get parts in about 3 days unless I pay extra, but a control module takes longer cause it is considered a specialty part. When I needed one for my zx3< It took 4 days, and about a half hour to install.

Are you paying, or is insurance? Car places will tend to take there time and jack the hours up if insurance is paying, cause when does insurance really check on it un-less it's like a stupid amount of time and money for something very simple.
