According to Car And Driver, Ford is recalling 327,000 trucks for a second time after their first recall repair wasn’t sufficient to remedy the problem. You can read more of the details on Car And Driver, but long story short, the engine block was catching on fire and Ford had to recall almost a million trucks. Including Canada, Ford recalled a total of 874,000 F-150 and Super Duty models, including 2015–2019 F-150 models and 2017–2019 Super Duty (F-250, F-350, F-450) and Chassis Cab (F-550) trucks.
Now, however they’re re-recalling roughly 327,000 of these previously recalled trucks in the U.S. for a second repair. Apparently, the method of fixing the problem the first time could’ve potentially damaged cables. Dealers will disable the cables for all recalled trucks by cutting the prongs that go into electrical outlets. All owners will get new cables when parts are available… which right now, they’re not.
“We are advising people not to use their engine block heater cable,” said a Ford spokesperson.
