2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty Problems

Blower Motor Only Works on High

The 2004-2010 Ford F-250 with manual temperature and fan controls may have problems with the the blower motor only blowing air on certain settings. Most commonly the fan will only run on the highest setting. This is a well documented problem, and is caused by a failing blower motor resistor.

Correcting the problem is straight forward, and requires replacement of the small resistor. The resistor is normally found behind the glove box, next to the blower motor.

One or More Spark Plugs May be Ejectioned From the Cylinder Head

There is a technical service bulletin for the V8 engines regarding a possible problem with the spark plug being ejected from the cylinder head, damaging the threads in the spark plug hole. If the vehicle is under warranty, cylinder head replacement is recommended. If the vehicle is out of warranty, Ford authorized the use of a specific thread insert to repair the head.

Coolant Leak from Radiator

A coolant leak from the radiator can be caused by a defective thermostat bypass. This can cause pressure spikes in the cooling system, which leads to radiator failure. The thermostat assembly and radiator should be replaced.

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
CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES AND VANS EQUIPPED WITH 6.0L DIESEL ENGINES MAY EXPERIENCE STALLING WITHOUT WARNING WHILE DRIVING AND MAY OR MAY NOT RESTART.
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.

I have a 2005 F-250 V8 with over 100k miles. up till last week it still drove and looked new. Now the check engine light has come on and truck is running bad, shutting down, losing power and miliage is horrible. read out states camshaft position sensor. Replaced the part and ran fine for 2 hours then check engine light came back on and it acting up again. i pulled the sensor and cleaned off and...
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.
