Exclamation RECALL NOTICE--Water in engine compartment(Finally!)

All,


Got a RECALL notice in the mail today...so you guys be on the lookout.


Customer Satisfaction Program 15B39


" On your vehicle, insufficient sealing in certain areas of the engine compartment may allow undesired water entry into the engine compartment directly over powertrain components. This can lead to symptoms including difficulty starting, misfires, or illuimination of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp(MIL).


In the interest of customer satisfaction, Ford Motor Company has authorized the dealer to install water management measures on your vehicle free of charge.."


So....will this solve the air filter problem? The PCM wiring harness on the driver's side hood that get drenched in water or both. Hmmmm.

Yeah, I'm following, too. Seems like this is so fresh no one has figured out what it is. Alarmist thinks it's just a repeat of the old one...you got a funnel, you get a gutter.

Hey man...maybe this is it! It's NEW AIR BOX time!!!

Ahhh, but skepticism abounds....

I'd put a TRUMP bumper sticker on it, but I'm quite certain it would be vandalized.

Skepticism? This is an industry which kills people over a 50¢ part and you think they would replace an airbox when they can just stick a cheesy urinal thing over it?

Let me assure you, I'm being quite facetious....ya know? They'll slap a rubber over the thing before forking over for a new one.

Hey, there's a trick...you know those hair bag things the old ladies wear over their heads an the salon? Hmmm...kinda like a poor man's TURD.

But yeah...it smells like the gutter fix for all those that bought before June of last year.

I have some material left over from recovering a motorcycle seat. Ima have the wife stitch up vinyl airbox groundsheets. Probably sell like their namesake.

I got this notice in the mail this past weekend as well. I have an appointment scheduled for next Monday for an inspection. This one must be hot off the presses. Note, I have a T350 HD Ecoboost. Not sure if the recall applies to all, or some....

I assumed Ford would have to eventually address the problem so only wrapped the air box with a plastic garbage bag and wrapped the electrical connections on the driver's side.

Will get the recall done and then evaluate any other changes. Definitely like the idea of a larger diameter drain with hose directly straight down and not into the fender well.

Now we get to start the modifications again with the new parts.

I am waiting for a aftermarket intake filter that eliminates the Ford design. Even with the redesign my garbage bag will remain to cover the wrong design flange.
