6.4L Recall

So the wife sends me a text this afternoon stating we got a letter in the mail from Ford today to have my Powertrain Control Module improved for detection capabilities. It is being covered as a recall.

Anyone else have this or heard about it? Do I need to do it?

I have not gotten anything in the mail or heard of any recall as of yet. Might get one later I guess.

She said the letter stated specifically stated it will help with the detection of water getting into the fuel.

I guess I will read it when I get back in town.

Would a PCM update help that situation? I would think that it would be an improved sensor

I wonder about that too. I am all about faster detection of problems with the truck, but I wonder if they've also done that at the expense of the tuner community.

i got the same notice today

A couple of lines that stuck out

"water in the fuel reduced power mode"
"your dealer will provide more detailed information AFTER service is complete"

obviously you have no option here if you want to maintain your warranty.

I am all for achieving top performance while maintaining longevity. However if this is a re-program that decreases performance to cover their a** for known issues with the truck....then recall the truck and fix the issues. ie Coolant system failure and fuel system failure...

you can't recall a truck for problems related to negligence. if ford can implement a strategy that will keep a customer from ruining their engine then all the power to them

This was what I was thinking when the wife said something about it.

I am a little concerned about doing the update.

Looking for some input from the tuning folks.

Anyone want to be the first to give it a shot and let us know?

the line that stood out to me was "Ford Motor Company can deny coverage for any vehicle damage that may result from the failure to have this service action performed..."
More like "for any damage that we'd like to duck responsibility for and you can't say s__t about it". It would stink if they were dumbing it down

Does anyone know if you get the reflash will it affect you from being able to put a programmer and exhaust on? I am taking my truck in on thursday to get the 30K check up and dont want to do it if it will affect me from being able to tune the truck. I am planning on putting on a H&S tuner and AFE exhaust
