2008 Ford F-350 Super Duty Problems

A/C Fan Speed Changing Constantly

The 2008-2010 Ford F-350 with automatic climate control may have a problem with frequent fan speed changes when using the heater or air conditioner. Normally, the fan speed changes only to maintain a selected temperature, but when the fan speed changes frequently and needlessly, there is an issue with the fan speed control unit. 

The fan speed control unit, sometimes erroneously called the blower motor resister, regulates the speed for the blower motor in order to maintain the temperature set by the driver. When it fails, the fan will run at random settings, and the climate control will be inaccurate.

Note: this does not affect the temperature of the air that comes from the vents, it affects the amount of air that comes from the vents. 

The repair is simple, and quick. The control unit is located behind the glove box in most models, and removal and installation takes only minutes.

Also note: this only applies to vehicles with single or dual automatic climate control.

Delamination of Diesel Fuel Tank

Delamination of the diesel fuel tank can occur resulting in a loss of power due to debris clogging the fuel filters. In some cases the fuel injection pump and/or fuel injectors have also been damaged. Ford has issued a service bulletin (#19728) addressing this concern. This issue can affect all diesel F-350, F-450, F-550, F-650, and F-750 Super Duty models.

Blower Motor Only Works on High

The 2004-2010 Ford F-350 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.

Fuel May Spill in a Frontal Impact

On certain trucks, the fuel tank may move forward in a frontal impact, possibly damaging the fuel delivery module and allowing fuel to spill. This could cause a fire in the presence of an ignition source. Dealers will install a reinforcement bracket free of charge. The recall began May 23, 2008. The Ford recall number is 08C04.

Some Driver's Seats May Need Reinforcement

Improper welds on some 40 percent split and captain's driver seats may allow the seat back to break at the seat pivot bracket. In a crash, if the seat pivot breaks, the risk of injury to the driver is increased. Dealers will add a reinforcement to the driver's seat back frame on both style seats or replace the seat back frame if necessary. The recall began March 28, 2008. The Ford recall number is 08C01.

Driver's Air Bag May Not Deploy

The driver air bag module may not have been assembled properly, which means the driver air bag may not deploy in a crash. If the air bag does not deploy, the risk of injury in a crash is increased. Dealers will replace the driver air bag module free of charge. The recall began November 20, 2007. The Ford recall number 07C019.

Excellent vehicle. The best vehicle I have ever owned, and that includes Cadillacs, Mercedes, Toyota's, Honda's, and so forth. I have never had a single problem with this vehicle. Not one. Zilch. I tow a 13,000lb 5th wheel, and it tows the camper like it is nothing. I pass not only semi's going uphill on the highway, but usually cars as well. This vehicle is a brute! 350 horse, and over 600 ft/...
You don't have a selection of a F-450 Super Duty. I have a F-450 Super Duty and the transfer case exploded at approximately 73,000 miles. I am being told by FORD that it was caused from having only one manual hub engaged. Has anyone heard of this? How can only one hub become engaged if your are not 4-wheeling. There were no warnings or indicators to let me know that one hub was engaged so ...
