Ford F-350 Super Duty Problems

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.

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) cleaning cycle

Software enhancements are available to remedy inconsistency and confusion about the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) cleaning cycle - “Regeneration” mode. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) will need to be reprogrammed to add several enhancements, including a more reasonable driving experience during the cleaning cycle and instrument cluster notifications of the cleaning status.

Smoke From Tail Pipe Due to Failed EGR Valve

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.

Engine Shuts Down Into Safe Mode

The engine management system may detect an improper exhaust gas temperature reading, causing the engine to shut down into a safe mode. The dealer will update the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) software free of charge to correct the problem.

On vehicles modified by Jerr-Dan Corporation for use as tow trucks, the power take off (PTO) unit may leak oil from a pressure switch onto the exhaust, causing a fire hazard. Dealers will install a new pressure switch kit that will relocate it free of charge to resolve the concern.
