Spark plug thread defect in #2 cylinder causing low compression and possible bent valve damaged by plug debris. The cylinder will need to be removed to correct problem. This is a known condition with Ford and the 5. 4 type engine and they ignore there responsibility completely. The repair is at a cost of about two thousand dollars and they should take some allowance to customers that own there product. Poor quality and design will only continue to reduce american confidence in the auto industry.
99 F-250 diesel stalls on freeway. Replaced the recalled cam shaft sensor but still stalls. I was told that the accelerator position sensor could be the problem and many other consumers are having the same problem. The cam shaft sensor was recalled due to stalling and causing possible injury accidents and this should be recalled for the same reason. My family is in danger while driving this truck. Ford knows about this problem and said there is nothing they can do about it. I suppose they are waiting for enough people to die from this problem for it to be resolved. I wonder how many have died from this problem and were not able to tell what happened due to their deaths.
On July 18th 2012 I was taking hollywood blvd to go to the stores and all the sudden the truck just shut off I was able to put the emergency brake and dint' hit anybody. I had it towed to my home. Then a few dates later we took the truck to a Ford dealer were they charge us for checking the truck and the mechanic from the Ford dealer and other people I know that has the same vehicle have had the same problem. And they all told me the same it is a manufacture error and it is so and so bad that the part it is in back order is worth $600. 00 dollars my question to you is why we the people that purchase these vehicles be responsible and have to pay for a part that the Ford manufactured made an error they should replace the part at no cost to us the customers. Because the Ford is the one that made the gem module defective we should not be responsible for that. Thank you.
