Some 2017-2018 F-150 and 2018 Navigator vehicles equipped with a 3.5L EcoBoost and built on or before 09-Mar-2018 may exhibit excessive oil consumption.

If there are no visible external oil leaks, replace both engine valve covers.

Refer to Workshop Manual, Section 303-01. For claiming, use causal part 6582 and applicable labor operations in Section 6 of the Service Labor Time Standards (SLTS) Manual.

Some 2018 F-150, Expedition, Navigator, Transit and Explorer vehicles may exhibit an illuminated MIL with DTC P025A stored in the powertrain control module (PCM).

This may be due to an intermittent or partial disconnect of the harness to the fuel pump driver module (FPDM) connector.

Confirm FPDM connector (F-150 C4336, Expedition/Navigator C433, Transit C433, Explorer C3239) is fully seated priorto performing PC/ED diagnostics or replacing any components.

1.4 MILLION FORD F-150 TRUCKS INVESTIGATED FOR B-PILLAR FIRES
Government looks at seat belt pretensioners causing fires in the B pillars during F-150 . Z

AUGUST 7, 2018 — More than 1.4 million Ford F-150 SuperCrew trucks are under federal investigation after reports of seat belt pretensioners causing fires in B pillars during crash events.

In a crash, seat belt pretensioners help to secure an occupant in their seat quicker than the blink of an eye. They pull the occupant into a seated position in an effort to ensure the occupant makes proper contact with the airbag.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says it has received five reports about fires that occurred during crashes of 2015-2018 Ford F-150 SuperCrew .

Its an official Recall now!  Z

FORD RECALLS 1.6 MILLION F-150S AFTER 17 FIRES IN THE U.S.
SEPTEMBER 6, 2018 — Ford is recalling more than 1.6 million model year 2015-2018 Ford F-150 Regular Cab and SuperCrew Cab trucks in the U.S. after 17 reports of fires caused after the seat belt pretensioners deployed in crash incidents.     ???

The automaker says a front seat belt pretensioner deployment can cause an excessive amount of sparks from the pretensioner devices and ignite the carpet, insulation and material inside the B-pillar areas.

Some reports say the fires went out on their own or were localized, while other reports say the fires spread.

Between April and October 2017, Ford knew of four reports of localized interior fires that occurred on 2015-2016 F-150s after the seat belt pretensioners deployed. An investigation on the four trucks was opened that focused on the front seat belt pretensioners (both retractor and lap anchor), electrical wiring, insulation and carpeting.

FORD F-150 MASTER CYLINDER PROBLEMS CAUSE HUGE LAWSUIT.

Ford class-action lawsuit alleges Hitachi master cylinders in F-150 trucks cause brake fluid leaks. Z

SEPTEMBER 18, 2018 — Ford F-150 master cylinder problems have caused a proposed class-action lawsuit that alleges the trucks suddenly lose their brakes because the Hitachi master cylinders have piston cup seals that allow brake fluid to leak.

The lawsuit includes owners and lessees of 2013-2018 Ford F-150 trucks that allegedly have front brake circuits that can suddenly fail.

According to the plaintiffs, the front brakes are responsible for 75 percent of the truck's braking force and without the front brakes the trucks can fail to stop, or in some cases even slow down.

Drivers of the 2013-2018 Ford F-150 trucks report rolling through stop signs and red lights and watching as their trucks roll into objects because the master cylinders lose their brake fluid.

All 2013-2018 Ford F-150s use master cylinders supplied by Hitachi, with the pistons fitted with just a single cup seal responsible for containing pressurized brake fluid. The lawsuit alleges this is unusual because pistons within master cylinders are usually fitted with two cup seals to ensure that fluid does not leak out of the master cylinders.

The Hitachi master cylinders allegedly place twice the sealing loads on its single piston cup seals. But the plaintiffs also claim the design relocates the usual placement of the cup seal from the piston to the master cylinder’s bore where the single cup seal rests in a groove machined into the bore of the master cylinder.

FORD RECALLS 410,000 F-SERIES TRUCKS AFTER 3 FIRES
Engine block heater cables blamed for 3 fires while the cables were plugged into outlets.
Ford Recalls 410,000 F-Series Trucks . -Z

DECEMBER 21, 2018 — More than 410,280 Ford F-Series trucks are at risk of fires while the engine block heater cables are plugged into wall outlets. Three fires are already blamed on block heater cables that were corroded by water and other contaminants.

2015-2019 Ford F-150
2017-2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
2017-2019 Ford F-350 Super Duty
2017-2019 Ford F-450 Super Duty
2017-2019 Ford F-550 Super Duty
Ford learned of three truck fires in September and October, with two of those fires occuring in 2017 F-150s and one in a 2017 Ford F-450 Super Duty. All three fires occurred in Canada when the engine block heaters were plugged into wall outlets.

Ford analyzed warranty data for F-Series trucks with block heaters and found reports of heaters that stopped working, household breakers and outlets that tripped, reports of smoke and allegations of cables that melted.

Ford says a combination of things make the engine block heater cable susceptible to moisture, including a female connector angled upward at a 45-degree angle. In addition, the vehicles have low mounting positions and unshielded or exposed mounting locations.

Trucks located in areas where road salt is used are more likely to experience problems because of corrosion to the splice connector terminals. Over time, the corrosion can cause short-circuits in the splice connectors.

If electrical shorts are causing trouble, owners may receive warnings in the form of block heater failures or if home breakers or outlets trip. Customers should also be on guard for buzzing sounds or smoke or sparks when the heater cables are plugged into wall outlets.

Ford says a driver shouldn't worry about problems unless the truck is parked and the block heater cable is plugged into an electrical outlet.

The Ford truck engine block heater cable recall is expected to begin January 7, 2019. Ford dealers will either seal the block heater cables or replace them.

Concerned truck owners should call 866-436-7332 and refer to Ford's recall number, 18S45

FORD F-150 TRANSMISSION LAWSUIT SAYS REVERSE DOESN'T WORK
California class-action says Ford F-150 trucks have dangerous transmission defects. Z

DECEMBER 30, 2018 — A Ford F-150 transmission lawsuit alleges the trucks won't shift into reverse gear unless the ignitions are shut off and turned back on.

According to the lawsuit, the transmissions have defects that cause the trucks to consistently fail to engage reverse gear when drivers shift to reverse. The plaintiff claims he was told the reverse gear failures are a "normal characteristic" of the transmissions.

However, the problem allegedly creates serious safety hazards because the trucks are not fit for ordinary use...
