Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS and FSA VIN Lists.

This program includes vehicles that are used in specific vocations only, which may be particularly affected by this condition due to duty cycle. These vocations include:

  • All F-59 Commercial Stripped Chassis
  • Bucket/Aerial Boom/Crane
  • Tow Trucks
  • Bus
  • Airport services (tugs, food, fueling trucks)
  • Beverage Trucks
  • Mechanical Service (tire service bodies, mobile welding trucks)

NOTE: A notification letter has been sent to select vehicle modifiers requesting they review their records and submit VINs to Ford by April 20, 2018, that were modified for use in one of the vocations listed above. Vehicles that have been verified as meeting the vocation criteria will be added to this program by April 30, 2018

REASON FOR THIS PROGRAM

In some of the affected vehicles, the camshaft roller follower bearings may experience accelerated wear. Accelerated wear of the camshaft roller follower bearings may cause an engine knocking noise, the check engine light to illuminate, or a no start condition.

SERVICE ACTION

Dealers are to replace the camshaft roller followers for both cylinder heads. This service must be performed on all affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner.

OWNER NOTIFICATION MAILING SCHEDULE

Owner letters are expected to be mailed the week of March 5, 2018. Owner letters to those identified to Ford via their vehicle modifier will be mailed by May 31, 2018. Dealers should repair any affected vehicles that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.
