Ford F-250 Super Duty Problems

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.

High Pressure Oil Pump May Fail and Cause "No Start" Condition

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

Hose From Turbo to Intake May Blow Off and Cause Pressure Loss

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.

Ford F-250 Super Duty Recalls

Tire Inside Sidewall Damaged During Vehicle Assembly

The inside of the tire sidewalls may have been damaged upon vehicle assembly. Dealers will inspect the tires for damage and replace them as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Vehicle Engages Reverse Before Engaging Drive Position

When shifting the transmission from park to drive, transmission may improperly engage reverse instead of drive briefly before finally engaging the drive position as selected, possibly resulting in unexpected vehicle movement. Dealers will update the transmission software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Shifter May Be Moved Out of Park Without Pressing the Brake Pedal

The brake/shift interlock can fail, allowing the transmission to be shifted into park without depressing the brake pedal. If the transmission were shifted into gear without depressing the brake pedal, a crash or injury to a nearby pedestrian could result. Dealers will inspect the brake shift interlock switch function and replace the switch if necessary.
