Recall

I know this has been beat to death so please have patience with me. I just found my recall notice for the cam position sensor for my 02 250. Do I REALLY need to do this? I am old school and generally follow the "if it ain`t broke don`t fix it" train of thought. A buck 30 on the odometer and it runs like a scolded dog, why F%$k with it? I also have my recall for the (cruise control/ brake fluid) deal. What do ya`ll think? This is my first diesel and I`m not too proud to ask when I don`t know. I appreciate all replies. Thanks.

It may or may NOT leave you stranded some day....If you are handy with tools, just throw a 10mm (If I recall right) 1/4 drive socket, short extension and ratchet in the glovebox along with a spare CPS (Got my "emergency" one for about $25 from O'Reilly's) if you are worried about it...Mine has 204,000 miles on it on and as far as I know it has never been replaced (Ford has no record of it, if it has been). They tried to get me to do mine when I had it in for the cruise control recall and I told them to forget it. There's been some people lately that have had good luck, but for awhile there wasn't much good to be said about the batch of new CPS's. I subscribe to the same theory of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" too so I personally will wait for mine to fail before I replace it.

I would do the cruise/brake switch because apparently it's a fire hazard. I would do the CPS recall as well, most likely the improved unit will NOT malfunction, but tell them you want to keep your old one as a spare since it has been reliable...they should understand.

Both of these are free so why not?

Fair enough...I also forgot to mention that I HATE having anyone other than myself work on my truck....With the exception of the transmission and the recall for the wiring, I am the only one that has touched it and I plan to keep it that way as much as possible.
