TaxmanHog Already had the above flash previously, but ran my VHR this afternoon, to check my oil life monitor rating, also had this notification in the email report

Field Service Actions
Notice # Description
Wondering if this should be changed out now, the engine has been experiencing an occasionally idle hiccup.

Seems I have not seen it warning that the clean cycle is starting in a while, wondering if this sensor is having a problem, though I don't have any codes

Derwood I'm sorry I don't trust Ford at all with this. My 2011 shut down in a very bad neighborhood, luckily during the day. This re-flash is sketchy and I am now in control of my truck, Ford will not be dictating when my truck shuts down to comply with some random nazi epa edict. I personally hope a huge lawsuit opens this crap wide open. Why in the hell do we need so many egt sensors? We all know why and it is crap.....just my .02 cents /end rant.

StrokeDeez I just took my 13 in for this flash and immediately after leaving the dealer I got a CEL with code P220a. NOx sensor needs changed. Truck ran like a dream before the flash now it's been a week and it's still in the shop.

John_P Blwnsmoke:

Thanks for posting on this issue for our trucks Sir!

FWIW,....I have never had this happen with my 2014, but one of my friends that had a 2012 Ford 6.7 Super Duty 6.7 had it happen to him and it DID leave him on the side of the road having to call a wrecker and tow his truck to the Ford Dealer. As a result of his experience, I went to my Ford Dealer and bought one of those sensors to have as a "spare" JUST IN CASE it happens to my truck.

My Ford Tech said there are like FOUR of those sensors in the exhaust system but the one most prone to failure called "BANK ONE, SENSOR FOUR" which is the one behind the DPF as stated in the "Bloomberg" article by blwnsmoke.
I paid about sixty ($60.00) for that sensor but hopefully I won't have to
use and if I do hopefully the new one will work!

OFF TOPIC: (Sorry B)

Ranger 429, I have to compliment you on those two trucks, particularly the 79 pickup. They are really something. I'm sure you have a load of work invested into them, and I'm sure it's worth it.
I used to have a black 79 F150. I've owned 32 trucks (that I can remember) and consider it my second most liked truck, second to this current 2014.

Good Job Sir!

Sorry for the interruption... Carry on Gentlemen...

rockbronco There isnt much more on this recall in the Technical information/Dealer Letter side either.

I am betting this is simply programming to change the fault strategy with a EGT sensor fault DTC. Hopefully allowing you to still drive the vehicle rather then stranding you on the side of the highway.

Ive got 111k on my job 1 and never had a sensor issue....yet(knock on wood).

I will probably program mine this week sometime when I get the time

Looking forward to additional information regrading this recall.
