Well, just last week we broke the news on the newer GM pickup trucks where they were buying them back. This week, it is Ford Motor Company’s turn. Per Ford, they are recalling nearly 23,000 Super Duty pickup trucks that are the 2020 model year with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine because of a risk of a roll away when parked.
Apparently, there is a washer that is inside their 10-speed automatic transmissions that can disintegrate. The debris from this can get lodged into the park mechanism, preventing the transmission from fully entering the park mode even though the shifter is in park. This has been a common issue as they recently issued a recall for nearly a quarter of a million Ford Explorer SUVs for the same thing.
If your Ford Super Duty was built at the Kentucky truck plant between October 1, 2019, and September 21, 2020, or at the Ford Ohio plant between October 30, 2019 and July 23, 2020, you’re going to have to have this fixed. At your local dealer, they will fix the problem by replacing a gearset in the transmission. That doesn’t sound like fun.
