2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty Problems

The cooler for the EGR valve can leak coolant internally, which causes white smoke to come from the tail pipe. Hot exhaust gases are cooled by the EGR cooler before being circled back into the engine.

The high pressure diesel fuel injection pump may fail, resulting in a "no start" condition.

A severe lack of power may develop because the hose from the turbocharger to the intake manifold can come loose, resulting in loss of boost pressure to the engine.

2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty Recalls

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.

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.

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.
