Recall Notice : Camshaft Position Sensor

Anyone else get a recall for Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP)? I have a 00' F250 and have had it for about a year and looking at the symtoms for a bad CMP, my truck sure does fit the description. Anyone know how long this service takes, what's all involved?

Symptoms
ĽA failed camshaft position sensor will show up in a number of ways. The worst-case scenario is that there is no spark in the combustion chamber. Other symptoms can include excessively long cranking time when starting cold, rough running on an intermittent basis, poor idle, stumbling or hesitation, a drop in mileage and stalling upon acceleration. These symptoms may also be caused by a failure in the wiring of the sensor.

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS. In addition, for a list of vehicles assigned to your dealership,

REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL

In some of the affected vehicles, the Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor may fail due to circuit
degradation. If the CMP Sensor should fail, the engine may stall. In the event of an engine stall, a
crash could result without warning. A new CMP Sensor with improved reliability is now available.

SERVICE ACTION

Dealers are to inspect the CMP Sensor to verify which design level sensor is installed in the affected
vehicles, and replace all prior level sensors. This service must be performed on affected vehicles at no
charge to the vehicle owner.

OWNER NOTIFICATION MAILING SCHEDULE

Parts to repair this condition are currently not available in sufficient quantities to service all of the
affected vehicles. Therefore, to ensure that an ample supply of parts is available, owners of affected
vehicles will be notified in separate phase mailings over several months. Phase mailing will begin the
week of December 17, 2007; prioritized by age of vehicle. Dealers should repair any affected vehicles
that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.
.
OWNER REFUNDS

Ford Motor Company is offering a refund for owner-paid repairs covered by this recall if the
repair was performed prior to the date indicated in the reimbursement plan, which is posted with
this bulletin.
Dealers are also authorized to refund owner-paid emergency repairs that were performed away

PARTS REQUIREMENTS / ORDERING INFORMATION
The Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor will be 'seed stocked' to dealers.

Most of my trucks symptoms are excessively long cranking time when starting cold, rough running on an intermittent basis, poor idle, stumbling or hesitation, a drop in mileage. Of course the drop in mileage is probably due to the rims and tires.

I ended up putting the original black one back in trucks runs better. They also reflash the computer when they put in the new gray CPS atleast that is what I was told so I never took it in and had them do the recall because I don't want them reflecting anything

I found about it when I ran the carfax on my truck and took it in. It took about 10 minutes. They did the cruise control harness while they were at it.
