06e17 Recall '03 F250 Ps

I just got my '03 250 SD back from the dealer. They did a recall I got from Ford #06E17, a control module recalibration. Now my stroker is a dog in a big way until it warms up. When I first start it it barely stays running...feels like its gonna shake apart. When I drive it after it warms for a bit it dogs bad...almost no response to mashing the pedal. The shifting feels screwy now too. What the hell did they do to my stroker? Can I get them to program it back where it was?

take it back in.......the new programming holds the injectors open longer on cold start.....and it sounds to me like you have an injector dropping out colds....so the reprogram just magnified a problem you already had.....you just may not have noticed it yet........they will need it overnight to start it cold so they can do a power balance check and figure out which injector(S) is dropping yout on ya.........Marc

OK so the Ford guy calls this am and says they verified the problem (like I was lying) and didn't diagnose the problem before it warmed up and smoothed out. So, they got it again tonight for another morning cold start. He said they called the Ford wizards who told him about TSB 06-2-13. He said they're gonna do the TSB. He also said if it is an injector issue my warranty covers it...except for a $100 deductable. So my rig is running great, I take it in for the recall, then it runs like S***, and now I'm lookin at a $100 bill? $100 would pay for a decent lobstah feed for me and my lady up here. Do I shut up and be glad to pay it or pay it under duress and jot the guys plate number down...just in case he ventures through my jurisdiction?

the bottom line is if you look at the 100,000 mile diesel warranty.....it states pretty clearly that after the bumper to bumper 3/36 warranty has run out.....that you are liable for a 100 dollar deductable for every repair visit......that is what every customer between 36001-100000 has to pay......if your under on time AND milage for the base warranty......then i would call ford directly.....but if not......thats just your responcibility. that injector alone is over 300 bucks each before labor to install....so its not that bad when you figure thats probably a $1000 repair or more after everything is said and done......Marc

I can't imagine what Maine lobster costs on the left coast. I was at the waterfront the other day and chicks were $7.98 lb. Pretty darn cheap considering what these guys go through to pull those traps. - Harry

The Ford mechanic called me today. They are replacing the injectors for #7 and 8. They didn't get them in 'till 2 this afternoon so they got my rig 'till Monday. I get to drive around in an '06 Focus - gratis rental from the dealer. What a show that is...have to run 2" of pressure to get me out of it and 2" vacuum to get me in. I guess the $100 deductible is not an issue anymore...Harry
