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

visit https://web.fsavinlists.dealerconnection.com . This information will be available on December 04,

2007.

REASON FOR THIS SAFETY RECALL

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.

SERVICE ACTION

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.

OWNER NOTIFICATION MAILING SCHEDULE

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.

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. :woot:

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?

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.

Since it is a safety recall, they have a certain series they are replacing, and if its one of them, they have to replace it, running or not. Just like on the 150's and the fires they had. whether you caught fire or not, they fixed it free of charge

Well I sure hope you are right for other peoples sake. I just dont see myself taking my truck to the dealer to let them replace a 14$ part and let it sit there for a week when it still runs. I guess I will just keep the one in the glove box ready for when I need it.And when it does go out it will take me all of 20 min to change it. LOL

What I don't get it this. If this is a big "safety" recall, then why wasn't this one WHEN THE 7.3 WAS BUILT????? :RTFM: Not 5 years after the fact. That has to be the reasoning in the major price reduction in the motorcraft CPS.

As I was told they will look at the color of the CPS. If it is a black one, they will replace it. If it is a grey one, they will not.

If you have put a new grey cps in change it out with an old black one and go in to trade up LOL

Pisses me off that my 96 is not covered.
