 I have a 2005 ford f-250 6.0 diesel purchased in february 2005. over the last year or so the truck has intermittent loss of power. this mostly occurs during take off from a stop. it has resulted in several near crashes due to faultering in the middle of an intersection. the nhtsa has a recall for this issue (05v270000) which ford acknowledges. ford however refuses to cover the repairs for this because my vin is outside of the vin specific recall. even thought this recall effects my vehicle's model year and trouble code.

 I could have been killed. in sept. 2005 i leased a f250 and since it has given me nothing but trouble. exhaust problems (3 times for that) injector failed, many little bugs that the dealer cant fix. on 6-24-06 on i-94 doing a 65-68 mph, the engine hesitates for a second then suddenly the wheels locked up and i lost control, skidding almost hitting 3 other cars and the wall on the shoulder. finally after steering to the shoulder - stopped and basically had a panic attack, saw my life flash before my eyes. sat for a couple minutes then got out to look at the wheels and under the truck for any clues as to what had just happened. i start up and stroll along the shoulder to the nearest exit the tow / haul light is flashing on and off. drive about 30 mph on a city road with my flashers on.. not but a 1/8 of a mile it locks up again and then frees up, and rolls. i am now freaking out. and now the engine light is on . called ford roadside i am a wreck! i'll never put my 4 month daughter in it. first diagnosis 3 days later after the lock up happened to the mechanic test driving the truck they guess the range sensor in the transmission and two days later called to tell me it was ready. 1 hour later the service tech called ,said we need to keep it longer 2 wks later they diagnose that a main wiring harness was leaning against the exhaust and burned up shorting the computer & told the trans to shift. i told them i do not want the truck. i don't feel safe and won't risk my life or my family. ford legal finally contacted the dealership after many contacts to them and upon their decision 3 wks after they towed it i must accept this vehicle, because it is supposedly fixed. i feel that ford is not taking this case seriously, and i wont feel safe driving this truck again. my service director among many of the service agents at the dealership as well as the ford factory rep. say that they would not feel safe driving in this truck if it were their truck, and would not drive it. *jb

 My f250 super duty truck stalls while driving, specially after turning corner. all 3 times the complete fuel injector assembly was replaced , 5/15/07, 12/15/07 & 8/15/07. had fuel tank cleaned and found rust remains in bottom of fuel tank. the computer and wire harness had to be replaced 12/15/07. fuel tank rusts from inside and blocks fuel line from fuel tank and water separator and consequently starves injectors from fuel which is why they burn up. see www.forddoctorsdts.com/articles/article-07-07.php. each time i bring in the truck it costs for a truck with between $1,000-$4,000 with only 110,000 miles on the truck. *tr
