About 180,000 6.0 liter diesel engine equipped vehicles are plagued with potentially faulty fuel injection control modules, apparently. Ford has admitted that it has no idea what percentage of the vehicles are affected with the known defect.

Ford reports that on those defective vehicles the control module wiring harness rubs against an engine bolt and some wiring terminals were not put together properly, resulting in electronic problems that can interfere with engine operation and cause stalling, among other things. Ford admits that if the vehicle stalls, it might not start again.

Ford admitted that it started receiving complaints back in 2004 shortly after the 6.0 diesel engine starting being shipped with the new vehicles.

Ford started an investigation into the stalling problem at that time, and the Federal Government started its own investigation in October 2004.

Incredibly, Ford has reported that “Ford’s investigation has demonstrated that the reported stalling incidents in the affected vehicles do not present an unreasonable risk to safety”. It is hard to understand how driving down the highway at 65 miles an hour and the vehicle stalling on you does not present an “unreasonable risk to safety”, unless you happen to be sitting at a desk in Detroit and not behind the wheel of the vehicle itself, one might suppose. Curiously, Ford has advised the Federal Government that “Ford does not plan to make a statement to the media” about the recall. Apparently the Federal Government is not serious enough about stalling defects to make them do it, either.

Ford is still investigating “engine performance issues” with the same diesel engine model in its 2003 truck line.

In addition to this recall, the Federal Government has announced that Ford also will recall almost 80,000 trucks from the 2005 model year because the fuel line may separate from the main fuel “bundle”, which can also cause engine stalling or fuel leaks, possibly resulting in a fire.

The Federal Government reports that this recall will involve the 2005 Ford F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 Super Duty Pick-Up Turks that are equipped with the 5.4 or 6.8 liter gasoline engines.

Other defects in these vehicles may also exist and more information can be found on the government’s web site for vehicle recalls.
