Fiery Ford Fallout


Posted March 22, 2007 - By Frank Meyer

Ford’s 2008 F-Series Super Duty diesels are being recalled in response of reports of flames shooting from the tailpipes.

Only about 8,400 of the trucks had been sold, with the remaining 29,000 still on dealer lots….


Flames shooting from the tailpipes????

Holy crap!

Turns out the issue stems from leaking fuel injectors and cracked turbocharger shafts. In both cases, the leaking fuel ignited in the diesel particulate filter near the tailpipe. Go figure.

Ford says the problem can be fixed with a control module upgrade that will "power down the engine" when extreme temperatures in the trucks' diesel particulate filter are detected.

I say once you’ve seen your car belch fire, you’re never the same again…
