2006 Ford LCF ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE:DIESEL NHTSA Campaign #06V471000
Summary: On certain low cab forward chassis trucks, the unsealed injection pressure regulator connector is exposed to the outside environment due to its location on the back of the engine and the engine's location in the vehicle. The connector has a heat insulation sleeve that may retain water around the connector.
Consequence: Over time, the collected water may potentially corrode the connector leads resulting in various engine performance concerns including; running rough, difficult or unable to be started, or engine stall increasing the risk of a crash.
Actions: Dealers will replace the injection pressure regulator connector, inspect for corrosion, and replace the heat insulation. If corrosion is present, the connector will be replaced. If corrosion is not present, dielectric grease will be applied free of charge. The recall began on February 13, 2007. Owners may contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
