Hey GasMan, do you have one of these???

Ford recalls nearly 260,000 trucks, SUVs, vans

Updated: 11:28 a.m. ET June 13, 2005
DETROIT -
Ford Motor Co. is recalling nearly 260,000 vehicles, most of them large pickup trucks, to fix safety defects that include sudden stalling of diesel engines, U.S. federal safety regulators said on Monday.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the stalling problem affects F-Series Super Duty pickups from the 2004-2005 model years as well as the 2004-2005 Ford Excursion full-size sport utility vehicle and E350 and E450 vans.

All 180,104 of those vehicles are equipped with 6.0 liter diesel engines and the recall stems from a potentially faulty fuel injection control module, NHTSA said.



An additional 18,000 vehicles are also being recalled in Canada and Mexico, Ford spokeswoman Kristen Kinley told Reuters on Monday.

Two reports of minor injuries have been linked to the problem, Kinley said.

She said Ford was also investigating 2003 model-year F-Series Super Duty pickup trucks equipped with the 6.0 liter diesel engines due to various engine performance issues.

Separately, NHTSA said Ford was recalling 78,675 Super Duty pickups and chassis cab vehicles from the 2005 model year because their fuel line may separate from the main fuel bundle.

Fuel line separation can cause engine stalling or leakage, possibly resulting in a fire, NHTSA said.

It identified the trucks affected by the recall as F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 Super Duty pickups and said they were equipped with 5.4 or 6.8 liter gasoline engines.

No accidents or injuries have been linked to the fuel line problem, Kinley said.

Nope...unfortuanately all my trucks are gasoline. I don't need a diesel for personal use and the company doesn't buy diesels anymore, for whatever reason in their infianate wisdom.

, and I can't say that enough. I had a Ford Mustang. Bought it for $3,500.00 and within the first six months, I dropped another $4,500 into it. And YES, I did get it checked out by four different mechanics who said it was G2G.

Hey say what you will... I own a Ford Truck, drive many different other Ford work trucks anything from F150, F250, and F350's.... We even have a nice Chevy 3500HD. I also own a Chevy Equinox and a Kaw. I love them all. Well besides the 6 banger F150... I don't like trucks w/o V-8s or bigger.

Recalls are just a part of life with mass production. I think the last big one was a GM recall...

Either way, it isn't any of my trucks.
