    Show me the confirmation. Ford does not list ANY recall for this. Fucking forums.

    Because it is not due to a RECALL, that is some shit the dealership set up to make a funny video, jesus christ, do you guys believe EVERYTHING on youtube/break captions? Good lord.

    Funny, my best friend manages a huge Ford dealership and has never encountered this situation. There was an ECU fix released for these trucks but never was it mentioned to cause the flaming problem. I am sure this was in isolated incident. Either way, double fail for the initial poster putting up a video from so long ago.

    Your best friend probably doesn't know shit about the service side if he's the GM.
    He's more concerned with sales than service....

    It says right in the recall "POTENTIALLY A VISIBLE FLAME OUT THE TAILPIPE CAN OCCUR."

    It was an isolated incident though, only a few trucks actually had the flames.
    Recalls cover all the potentially effected vehicles, not just the ones it happened to. Most it will probably never have the problem but the manufacturer has to ensure it won't.
    People don't seem to understand that about recalls.

    this is fucking old.
    takes 2 mins to fix, we were reprograming them as we did the PDI's so they were fixed before sold.

    1-It's a diesel

    2-it happens over time, not the minute you start the engine.....

    because there is a diesel particulate filter... And the ecu purposes injects fuel into the exhaust to burn the particulate off -- hence the flames out the back. But Ford didn't think it through... What happens when the truck is just parked at idle? Huge safety risk.

    I wasn't aware the particulate filter was cleanable. I figured it was something that got changed out every 50kmi or something like that.

    Interesting. Learn something new every day. I'm glad they're using particulate filters, at least.
