CPS Question

How do I know if I need to get a new CPS installed? I heard that there was a recall on them i thought! Anyone enlighten me on this subject, would greatly appreciate it.

What year truck do you have?

Recall Information - Ford

Go to this link, put in your make and VIN# and it will tell you if you have an open recall or not. If your truck is running okay, and you do have a CPS recall open you might as well get it fixed, it's free.

Because you'll be like the rest of us who have experienced failures. STRANDED.
Plus the recall is because they engineered a new CPS that WON'T FAIL!
Yes the previous replacements have gone out, but that's a thing of the past now.

You might seriously consider getting a spare. It is a lot cheaper / less expensive / no down time while you wait on a tow truck to come get you. 10mm socket and ratchet and you are back on the road.

Whatevers clever.

I guess it doesn't make sense to some to get it fixed permanently for free
