Exclamation SAFETY RECALL

Hopefully everybody recieved their letters from ford about a safety recall. If not here it goes.....

Ford has found a defect in certain 97-03 vehicles with the 7.3.

The camshaft position sensor located on the engine of your vehicle may function intermittently, possibly resulting in an engine stall. In the event of an engine stall a crash could result without warning.

Ok. guys if you didn't get a letter call ford! they will inspect it and fix it for FREE. You have to go to an authorized service provider and tell them it is for recall 07S57 and give them your vin and they should set up an appointment.

Hey I hope this helps some of you, I know everybody did not buy their 7.3's from a dealer so you may not get recall notices and that doesn't matter! It's still a ford and they have to cover it, so get it checked out. Im getting mine checked on monday.

Let me know if this helps.

Nick

CPS

Thanks for the heads up NIX 4X4! Got my recall letter this week. Can anybody tell me what are the symptoms of a CPS going out?

There are no symptoms till it goes. Your truck just shuts off.

So the new CPS sensor is improved and will not just die out of nowhere?

As far as I know if it goes, it will still go just like the older ones. They are not going to wear out and die gradually. It may cause an intermittent problem at the begining, but when it fails your truck shuts off no matter how fast you're going. The newer ones may last longer who knows? It's hard to say, some guys with 99's are still on their origonal one, and some guys with 03's are on their second or third ones.

It's funny to me (and everyone else) that Ford waited until now 5 years after production of this motor stopped to come out with a "safety" recall on the CPS. This has been a problem and a safety concern since 1994.
