problem #1

F-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • 73,251 miles
Engine began bucking, sudden power loss and power steering and power brake loss. Mechanic conclusion was that the lining of the fuel tank had dislodged and caused the engine to foul, causing a sudden power loss. Dealer said they had never heard of the problem but we later learned they were very familiar with it, had done dozens of repairs (replacement of tank with poly tank) and that a "secret" repair bulletin had been issued ty Ford to all dealers. This issue is now the subject of a class action lawsuit in New Jersey. Google "Ford fuel tank lining" for more info on the suit, but by not issuing a recall this issue is a potential safety concern. Had we been in heavier traffic and unable to get the vehicle to the side of the road there may have been a serious accident.
