Ford is recalling roughly 180 2017 Ford Super Duty 6.7-liter diesel Chassis Cab vehicles to replace the adhesive-mounted protective shield on the fuel conditioning module with a bolt-on metallic protective shield.
In affected vehicles, inadequate adhesion of the protective shield on the fuel conditioning module may allow it to be dislodged by road debris or water spray.
If the protective shield is dislodged, road debris or water spray may force open the drain valve on the module. This can lead to air entering the fuel system or a substantial fuel leak.
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of fire. In addition, under certain conditions, fuel on the road may cause a slip hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.
Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
Affected vehicles include certain 2017 Ford Super Duty 6.7-liter diesel Chassis Cab vehicles with midship fuel tanks built at Kentucky Truck Plant, March 21, 2016 to Aug. 28, 2016.
Dealers will replace the fuel conditioning module bottom cover with a bolt-on metallic protective shield at no cost to the customer.
