Recall 14V327000

Oil Leaks From Power Take Off Unit On Vehicles Modified By Stahl

Recall Details

For vehicles modified by Stahl, the power take off unit (PTO) supplied by Muncie Power Products may have an oil leak from the PTO pressure switch. This could cause oil to leak onto the exhaust system. Dealers will install a new pressure switch kit that moves the switch away from the exhaust system free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For Super Duty trucks modified by Stahl and equipped with certain Muncie Power Products Power Take Off (PTO) assemblies, there may be an oil leak from the PTO pressure switch onto the exhaust system. This could create a fire hazard.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Ford truck must be performed by a Ford dealership. Stahl began notifying known owners of affected vehicles in June, 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Ford dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
