1998 Ford F-250 recalls

 

Engine, July 29, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles sold or currently registered in states using corrosive chemicals to de-ice the roads may have fuel tank straps that can rust prematurely and fail. If the fuel tank were to shift as a result of a broken strap, the fuel lines could separate or the fuel tank could contact the ground. In either case, a fuel leak could develop, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank straps with straps that have increased corrosion protection. Early in the campaign, if replacement straps are not available, dealers may install a cable support under the strap as an interim repair or a steel reinforcement over the existing strap as a permanent repair. This recall is expected to begin September 12, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11S21.

Drive Train, July 20, 1998

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled 1997-1998 Expedition, F150, F250, and Lincoln Navigator vehicles because of lug nuts that do not clamp the wheels securely enough to the wheel hubs. These lug nuts can loosen and cause the wheels to separate from the vehicle. Dealers will inspect the wheel studs and replace the lug nuts with a new design.

Drive Train, October 20, 1997

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled 1997-1998 Expedition, F150, F250, and Lincoln Navigator vehicles due to a possible shift cable malfunction. On some vehicles, the cable may become detached from the steering column bracket. This may prevent the shifter from engaging the "Park" gear, even though it may still indicate "Park," and the vehicle could roll away. Dealers will secure the shift control cable to the steering column bracket and add a tie strap to the connection.
