Driving a 2005 F-450 Superduty, that is throwing ICP sensor codes, and FICM issues. Both parts were recalled in 2005 by ford, local dealerships will not repair due to the truck being out of warranty? what the crap is that???? if they broke under warranty, the warranty would cover it, why the recall???? more importantly, am i being jerked around by this dealership, or is this common practice?, "sorry we can't replace the defective parts in your motor, they just HAPPENED to outlive the warranty."
