  • 34,000 miles


The PCM at 34,000 miles caused two fuel pumps to burn out in 4 days. A "wrench" warning symbol appeared on the dash and the vans engine dies while going at high speed (we pull a pressure washing trailer holding with hazardous chemicals & water). If it was raining or even heavy traffic this could cause a dangerous life threatening crash. On wet roads these heavy commercial vehicles can easily hydro-plain when this occurs putting the driver & others in danger who may be in the path. We are now without our service van for 2 weeks & Ford estimated in the excess of $2600 in repairs on a vehicle with just 34,000 miles on the van.we just replaced the transmission 3 months ago. My step father is 84 years old who owns this vehicle and he is a retired navy captain of over 25 years. He and I are both concerned that this vehicle is too dangerous to drive at high speeds (60-70mph) with the loads we carry in our every day service schedule. Ford seems to offer no assistance financially and no comfort in resolving the safety issues resulting in the failure of the PCM (power train control module) which is obviously very dangerous when large commercial vehicles have the engine failing or dying at high speeds. After reading about the throttle body problems that Ford experiencing with over 1,600,000 vehicles being recalled, it seems that the same warning symbol of the two sided wrench appears on the dash and the same engine failing occurs at high speeds. The service mechanic at big star Ford in manvel tx. Told me he replaced the first fuel pump, drove it on the hwy and had to tow it back to the dealer because it died while test driving the van and burned out the new fuel pump he just installed, then he said he put a new fuel pump in again and used that to diagnose that the PCM was the problem while running it on idle for an hour. We are now concerned this new pump is damaged.
