FORD: 1999-2006 E-Series, F-Super Duty

This article supersedes TSB 03-21-46 to update the affected engines and vehicle model years.

ISSUE:
Some vehicles equipped with the 7.3L or 6.0L Diesel Engine may exhibit engine oil pan corrosion when operated in high salt content/corrosive environments. If the customer is concerned with this cosmetic issue, the following procedure may be used to resolve the condition.

ACTION:
Inspect the oil pan. If corrosion is detected use Motorcraft High Temp Anti-Corrosion Coating, Part Number PM-13-A, to service. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

Clean the oil pan off with a solvent to remove any dirt and oil. Using a 3" angle grinder with a 36 grit disc, grind off all loose corrosion. Blow off with air. Wash the pan with soap and water and let dry. Brush the anti-corrosion coating on the oil pan. Allow coating to dry fully before operating the vehicle.

Thanks guys for the replies, I guess I'll have to do it myself. It's just with my back still giving me fits, was hoping to get it done while it didn't require anything from me but driving it to the dealer. Thejdman04, I was actually planning on using POR15, that there is some good stuff. Gene ;mafia
