SUSPENSION

1/13/2016 - CLEVELAND, SC
DEATH SHIMMY. STEERING WHEEL SHAKES VIOLENTLY WHEN A BUMP OR DISCONTINUITY IN THE ROAD IS ENCOUNTERED. YOU CANNOT HOLD THE STEERING WHEEL DURING THIS EVENT. CURE IS TO REDUCE VEHICLE SPEED BELOW 15 MPH. THIS IS HAZARDOUS IF TRAVELING AT HIGH SPEED OR PULLING A TRAILER. AS YOU CANNOT HOLD THE WHEEL DURING THIS EVENT, THE VEHICLE WILL CHANGE LANES AND PRESENTS A FATAL HAZARD AS YOU ATTEMPT TO REDUCE SPEED FROM 65 MPH TO BELOW 15 MPH WITHOUT STEERING CONTROL. FORD ACKNOWLEDGES THE PROBLEM IN LETTER 09L02 SENT IN 2009 AND AGAIN IN 2015. THEIR SOLUTION TO PROPERLY INFLATE THE TIRES IS FALSE AS TIRE PRESSURE HAS NO EFFECT ON OCCURANCE OR SEVERITY. I HAVE REPLACED THE TIRES AND RUN UP THE PRESSURE IN 5 LB INCREMENTS FROM 55 TO 80 PSI. NO EFFECT IN THE FREQUENCY OR SEVERITY OF THE VIBRATION. ## VIN PASSED ## FORD F350 SUPER DUTY 2006 ##

FUEL SYSTEM, DIESEL

9/3/2015 - GREENSBURG, PA
THIS VEHICLES ISSUES BEGAN WITH THE GALVANIZING OF THE INTERIOR OF THE FUEL TANK FLAKING OFF AND GETTING INTO THE FUEL SYSTEM. IT IS A DIESEL. IT HAS BEEN TO THE SHOP TO HAVE THE FUEL TANK REPLACED, INJECTORS REPLACED, HIGH PRESSURE FUEL PUMP REPLACED TO NAME A FEW. ALL AFTER THE FUEL TANK PROBLEM. SINCE THEN THE VEHICLE HAS SHUT DOWN A NUMBER OF TIMES WHILE ON THE HIGHWAY. THIS IS EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS TO LOSE ALL POWER. FORTUNATELY OUR DRIVERS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MANEUVER IT OFF THE HIGHWAY BEFORE CAUSING AN ACCIDENT. FORD HAS DENIED HAVING A PROBLEM WITH THEIR FUEL TANKS; HOWEVER, WHEN WE CHECKED AROUND WE FOUND IT TO BE QUITE COMMON. IN FACT WE HAD A DIFFICULT TIME SECURING A NEW TANK BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY REPLACEMENTS BEING DONE. I BELIEVE FORD SHOULD STEP FORWARD AND ADMIT THERE IS AN ISSUE AND DEAL WITH IT. WE DISCUSSED THIS WITH A ZONE MANAGER AND GOT NOWHERE.
