The check engine light came back on the next day as well as intermittent loss of power experienced and low injector pressure was still the problem. The light came back on the same day. The technicians were able to determine that the transmission shift sensor and the fuel tank would have to be replaced. Low injection pressure was diagnosed and an oil pressure line was replaced. The manufacturer was aware of the failure. While driving approximately 50 mph, the contact drove over an uneven road surface and the front end of the vehicle began to shake vigorously. Ford is closing their eyes on this one, and it is going to cost lives!!!.
While driving approximately 65 mph the contact smelled a strong anti freeze odor in the vehicle. After the vehicle was repaired the failure continued. And the transmission shift sensor was replaced. Ford has sent a few notifications stating that they are aware of the problem, but that it is just caused from improper inflation. I have contacted Ford customer service.
The vehicle over heated and stalled. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the transmission was rebuilt. We do not have to hit a bump for it to happen. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostics but the technicians were unable to determine the cause of the shaking. They diagnosed low fuel injector pressure and replaced the fuel control module.
Leading up to this when the plugs begin to fail the engine will fail without warning and without the engine needs service light ever coming on. The technicians were able to determine that the transmission shift sensor and the fuel tank would have to be replaced. The vehicle could not be restarted and was towed to the dealer. Due to a previous complaint regarding faulty turbos, Ford extended my warranty until 2011 through an oasis service contract. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed that the turbo charger was defective and needed to be replaced.
IÃ¢¿¿M not requesting replacement of the vehicle, nor monetary compensation although this problem has caused considerable inconvenience and loss of time. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000. When this happens and their is no place to pull over you hope your not ran into by oncoming traffic. I took it in to the dealer they told me nothing was found to be wrong. Truck needs to cool down before restarting. A faulty turbo causes the truck to run poorly and fail Connecticut emissions tests and risks further engine damage.
The failure occurred three times. The failure mileage was 65,000 and the current mileage was 85,000. I had sent them repair records, photos and documentation. The approximate failure mileage was 80,000. Then the same event happened about 7 months after that. The vehicle is currently in the shop and has been for the past 60 days. The fuel tank was not replaced.
I brought the vehicle back in for diagnosis and repair. The vehicle was driven home and the check engine light came on. Truck runs then when you stop the truck in hot weather, it will not restart for about 1 hour. My vehicle has 43000 miles currently, and has had the motor taken out of it twice already for repairs!!! This requires very expensive tools and a skilled mechanic to extract. The vehicle was driven home and the check engine light came on.
While driving approximately 50 mph, the contact drove over an uneven road surface and the front end of the vehicle began to shake vigorously. I will not let my wife drive it anymore for now. I have set the tires to manufacturers recommended psi weekly, and doesn't make a bit of difference. The contact mentioned that the failure occurred once prior. The technician stated the exhaust gas recirculation system had to be replaced.
My truck suddenly lost power and service engine light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The contact stated that in addition, the check engine warning light was illuminated, the vehicle would erratically shift, and the fuel tank was delaminating. . It is tiring of reading all these similar complaints and no one is defending the consumers.
The problem has not been corrected. It is apparent that there is an engineering or design flaw associated with the turbos. I feel the part was engineered to fail to force the price of repairs up. The fuel tank was not replaced. The failure recurred ten months later at 36,000 miles.
