Engine light is illuminated while driving and stopped on dash and code P208 comes up for the reductant heater failed, this causes the exhaust system to not fully clean out and could place the truck into a limp mode causing decreased power and potentially stop the vehicle all together

While driving the check engine and reduced power message showed up leaving the vehicle dead on the road. Within 30 seconds the truck had stalled and was not able to re-start. Truck was towed to the dealership where it was found that the CP4 hp pump had failed contaminating the entire fuel system. The repair bill was ~$8,200

I was driving and my check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and the code was P205C, which reductant tank temperature sensor circuit low. I was told by the Ford dealer that it needed to be replaced and that there was a recall for this part from trucks made from Aug 2009 to Oct 23 2012 and my truck was made on Nov 5, 2012. My truck missed being a part of this recall by less than 2 weeks! I think that it is obvious that the recall should be expanded to include more VIN numbers corresponding to trucks manufactured later.

F-250 4WD 8-cyl

  • 21,000 miles
I was driving on a local interstate when my 2013 Ford F-250 6.7 diesel shut off. I was in the fast lane, the truck lost all power and rapidly slowed down. Luckily I was able to get the truck over to the shoulder using strobe lights and hazard lights to warn other vehicles that I had a serious problem. The interior of the truck began to smell of diesel fuel and it became difficult to breathe. I called my dealer, and the local towing company came to get it. After approx. 1 week at the dealer and expecting this to be an instant warranty repair, Ford Motor Co. Has denied any warranty coverage claiming "fuel contamination." The estimated repair is $11,500 and the truck that I purchased on August 3, 2013 for $50K+ is now estimated to be worth $12,000 unless repaired. I am not comfortable in the truck anymore and I read all over the internet about this problem and how Ford is not taking responsibility for a flaw on their end. There are people all over the country with the same issue and even still Ford will not own up to it and repair them under warranty. The new 2015 truck has a completely redesigned fuel system which is a clear indication that they knew it was a problem with their oil/water separators and their fuel system. As of now, I lost $40,000 in 1 year (owned truck for 13 months prior to catastrophic failure) and could have been seriously injured had I not been able to get off the road.
