I just read (Big Bird) about the idiot....but more interestingly to me was the notion of a cps recall--Is there something I should know?
i dont know man. My best guess would be that they had the most reports of problems with the 97-2003 trucks, thats why they made it for those years. Maybe someone knows the exact reason:dunno:, but thats my best guesswhy aren't the 94 - 96's covered?? i have a 96er and my CPS failed right before the recall was anounced.
just a new sensor.They have changed/updated the CPS. There just putting in the current new one thats now for sale from FORD.I have a 97 and lo and behold My vin# doesn't qualify me...uhm ....... what changes are they making in the service recall,... ie. just a new sensor, new modifications, how are they correcting the problem?
This recall is for diesel engines as I understand it. From 97 up to ? Anyway you can buy them online cheap and just carry a spare. Easy on the road repair.
Ford Recalls - Car Maintenance & Service Tips - Ford97-2003 7.3's.
but i dont know that if covers everybodys trucks in those years. (not entirely sure on that).
its most trucks between 97-2003 is the way i understood it. you should be getting a notice in the mail from ford.
there is also a website online where you can put in your VIN number, and it will tell you whether your truck is involved in the recall. dont remember the site tho.
maybe someone else can chime in with the web site address
New Sensor, New Part Number! :thumb:I have a 97 and lo and behold My vin# doesn't qualify me...uhm ....... what changes are they making in the service recall,... ie. just a new sensor, new modifications, how are they correcting the problem?
I stopped by my international dealer and got one from them. The guy said that they were first black then went to blue and now they are grey colored. I'm gonna install it this weekend. They were about 10 bucks cheaper then ford.rumor has it that the cps for the international t444e (which has a blue top) is a much better piece than the ford ones were. If that is true then it stands to reason that you could just go down to your local International dealer and pick one up for your truck.
