 2006 ford lcf 450. consumer states problem with fuel system *tgw the consumer stated he has been experiencing problems with the vehicle, since the day of purchase. the engine was replaced at 96,018 miles. the vehicle stalled and would not restart. the dealer changed the new ficm that came with the new engine because it was not done when the engine was first replaced. the dealer then found the number 2 and 6 fuel injectors had failed. the next day the vehicle was still running poorly with bucking and very little power so the vehicle was taken back to the dealer. they then found that the fuel pump failed so they replaced it. they also found the number 1, 3,4 and 5 fuel injectors had failed and replaced them. the dealer did not lower the fuel tank for inspection nor did they flush the lines per procedure. several weeks later, the vehicle stalled again without warning. the dealer found that the fuel pump was not putting out pressure so they replaced the fuel pump again. the dealer found that the fuel tank had not been inspected. the lines had not been flushed and the pump assembly lines had been broken by the previous repair, therefore, the fuel and housing was full of contamination. the consumer did not feel that recall # 06v47100 sufficiently addressed the engine/fuel corrosion problems thus creating numerous repairs to his vehicle. *jb

 Our ford lcf450 was lacking power and was idiling rough. we took it in to our local dealer and they stated that the fuel tank was delaminating which clogged the fuel lines. they said we needed to replace the fuel tank, fuel pump and fuel filters. the dealership said that this was caused by putting in diesel fuel that had trace amounts of biofuel.

 Our company has a 2006 ford lcf medium duty truck with 30.000 miles on it and the 4.6 l v-6 powerstroke diesel. at about 24,000 miles we began having power loss issues with it. we pulled the fuel filters and found them clogged with what appeared to be flakes of silver paint. assuming we had gotten a bad tank of fuel, we replaced them and assumed the problem would go away. since then we have had to replace the filters 3 more times ( at $85.00 each time ) in 6,000 miles. the truck will start to lose power quickly, with no warning and can even stall suddenly. after researching on line, i have found that the problem is extremely widespspread with ford diesel medium duty trucks and is caused by the fuel tanks delaminating. the repairs can be anywhere from $600 - $8,000 depending on how much damage is done. they can also cause loaded trucks to stall, or lose all power on crowded freeways as has happened to us several times now, posing a very real safety hazard. despite it being a widespread enough problem that there are several law firms looking into it ( one being girardgibbs.com, san francisco ) i can find nothing on here about it. the local commercial ford dealer admits its' a problem and that ford is doing nothing about it. please advise
