Go to the link and put in your vehicle make and VIN#
It will tell you if your vehicle has an active recall, and what steps to take.

Symptoms vary. In my case the truck started stalling as I was driving. It has only been in a few days so hopefully that was the issue!

Actually that blue cps isn't for the ford powerstroke, but the international DT466E. It will work, but its not the correct cps. The new cps in the recall is grey in color vs the black one and is improved to last longer.
One of the guys I work with that went to International school was telling me that you could run the 466E CMP in the 444E's (7.3) and it was supposed to make it run a little better at upper rpm's. Advances it some and makes a little more HP. How true it is?? I dunno at this time, b/c i've never tried it. :dunno:

Ok, here's the scoop. I talked with my co-worker and he told me that you could NOT run the 466E CMP's in a 7.3 (444E), because it would retard the timing and make them run worse. Now if you put a 444E in a 466E that it would advance timing and make a little more HP. I wasn't for sure and didn't want to get anyone's hope's up for more HP. :doh: PARTY FOUL, back up and punt!!! :dunce: LOL
