2002 Ford F-150. Consumer writes in regards to recall and repairs the consumer stated he made an appointment as suggested by the recall letter two weeks ago and as of October 7, 2011 the dealer informed him the parts were still not available. The consumer also stated the instrument cluster did not work, which made it difficult to see the mileage on the vehicle. The consumer was informed the only way to fix the problem was to replace the entire module as the dash must be taken apart. The consumer stated he took the vehicle to the dealer after waiting several months for the parts and was informed they could not replace the gas tank, because it was leaking and it was not covered under the recall. The leak was due to the faulty straps where the metal was rubbing on metal. Updated 12/20/11

The oil pressure gauge erratic at times, ok on start ups. But while in use it would drop to zero and the oil light would come on. If you shut vehicle off and restart oil gauge would go back to ok. Until you start driving.
