FYI
Dealers will inspect the sensor and replace it with an "improved camshaft

contact Ford at (866) 436-7332.

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS. In addition, for a list of vehicles assigned to your dealership,
visit https://web.fsavinlists.dealerconnection.com. This information will be available on December 04,
2007.
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

hey, sorry if this isn't the first notice you read. I checked the threads going back to November...on this Excursion forum... and must have missed something. Anyway, the title says it all if somebody hasn't got the message yet.

Geez. I thought all the 7.3 guys carried a CPS in the glovebox. Ford is only 10 years too late on this. Maybe in 10 years they'll recall the 6.0 heads and everyone will get them free too.
