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.

Coolant Leak from Radiator

A coolant leak from the radiator can be caused by a defective thermostat bypass. This can cause pressure spikes in the cooling system, which leads to radiator failure. The thermostat assembly and radiator should be replaced.

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.

Ford F-250 Super Duty Recalls

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.

Body Control Module May Overheat

The body control module (BCM) may develop an internal electrical short. This may cause the BCM to overheat, which can lead to a vehicle fire. Dealers will inspect the BCM and replace it as necessary. This recall is expected to begin on March 7, 2011. The Ford recall number is 10S14.
