Ford 7.3L CPS Recall

This was posted over on Powerstroke Nation:

I saw this on the FTE site:

TO: All U.S. Ford and Lincoln Mercury Dealers

SUBJECT: Safety Recall 07S57:

Certain 1997 - 2003 F-Super Duty, Excursion, and E-Series Vehicles

Equipped with 7.3L Diesel Engines

Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Inspection / Replacement


Vehicle Line Model Years Assembly Plant Production Dates

Econoline 1997-2003 Lorain Assembly Plant 4/3/1996 - 9/16/2003

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS. In addition, for a list of vehicles assigned to your dealership,

visit . This information will be available on December 04,



In some of the affected vehicles, the Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor may fail due to circuit

degradation. If the CMP Sensor should fail, the engine may stall. In the event of an engine stall, a

crash could result without warning. A new CMP Sensor with improved reliability is now available.


Dealers are to inspect the CMP Sensor to verify which design level sensor is installed in the affected

vehicles, and replace all prior level sensors. This service must be performed on affected vehicles at no

charge to the vehicle owner.


Parts to repair this condition are currently not available in sufficient quantities to service all of the

affected vehicles. Therefore, to ensure that an ample supply of parts is available, owners of affected

vehicles will be notified in separate phase mailings over several months. Phase mailing will begin the

week of December 17, 2007; prioritized by age of vehicle. Dealers should repair any affected vehicles

that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.

You can go to:

Type in your VIN and see if your truck is affected. Bout time they took care of this!

I just spoke with a woman at ford's customer service line. She informed me that this recall also applies to out of warranty vehicles since this is considered a safety issue.

Shouldnt have to wait for parts; sounds like they're just giving everyone the new CPS.

I dont see any 1994-1996 trucks listed. They had the same engine, I wonder why they're CPS is exempt? Is there an age- based cutoff?

2002 F-350 Lariat crew cab 4x4 PSD auto, DRW with 163,000 miles, Ford AIS, otherwise all stock.

1994 F-250 PSD, 5 speed, open intake, 5" single stack, gauges, DynaMat, 302,000 miles.

Punched in the vin for my '96 and nothing comes up. Must only be on the '97 and newer.

Now the real reason the price on them has plumited comes out. Ford does that so they don't have to pay the dealers as much for warranty claims.

'96 F-250 Extended Cab, GT'S injectors, GT'S intercooler install kit, custom turbo kit with a little HX40, Swamp's BIGEST oil.
466 on #2 only
739 with N≤O
