2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty Recalls

Aftermarket Lift Kit Blocks May Be Damaged

The welded lift blocks may compress due to over tightening of the u-bolts or excess vehicle payloads, reducing the clamping force of the u-bolts. This could result in shifting and damage to the rear axle and drive shaft. Truxx will replace the affected lift blocks with non-welded aluminum or cast iron blocks to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on April 16, 2008. The Truxxx recall number is 08-01BLK.

Recall 05V270000
Fuel May Leak from Fuel Line Connection

On trucks equipped with the 5.4L V8 or 6.8L V10, the fuel jumper line may have an end that was improperly formed and could allow fuel to leak. The engine may lose power and eventually stall. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will install an external retention clip at the fuel jumper line to the main fuel bundle connection. The recall began June 20, 2005. The Ford recall number is 05S33.

good truck so far overall
This is the worst truck I have ever owned in my life. Spent over $2000.00 at a reputable mechanic shop and still won't run. maf, pcm, lots of diagnoses time, and still nothing. Waste of money if you ask me.
