I've needed to replace defective purge valves twice on my 2012 [early 2016 and again late 2017] - At least after replacing the valve the code did not recur for over a year. So far, no new codes after the 2017 replacement....

My picture was with almost a full tank. I guess I'll wait for it to be empty to retake the picture.

I got the recall done today because I was in the shop getting diagnostics for p0420 code that has been intermittant the last couple months.

They replaced the purge valve for free, and even though my gas tank has a slight bow like shown in the pics on this thread, they did not deem it necessary to replace. My car still takes 10.5 gallons close to empty, so I don't think it really "collapsed," so much as slightly sucked in in one spot.

They told me the p0420 code might be related to the recall, but that if the code comes back on after the work was done, it will definitely be the cat that needs to be replaced.

:/

How did you get the recall performed when the recall notice states:

I got it when i brought up the recall to the service manager. They did tye recall for me, which involved inspecting the charcoal canister, gas tank, and replacing the purge valve and reprogramming pcm.

I got lucky i guess. I just hope the p0420 code doesnt come back.

Believe me i was as surprised as you. All i know is the truth of what happened to me. You can get the recall early.

Notice at the top where it says "recall," and also notice how much it cost me! FREE 99 BABY!

I wish they had replaced my charcoal canister and gas tank though. Even a little bowing is too much imo.

Actually I want to be 100% honest and let you all know that I think God's favor was on me yesterday when I got the recall. I have been waiting to get my car looked at for months, rescheduling appointments and missing one, and then two days before this appointment comes there's a recall in the news that i read about on this forum. I go there and the lady tells me it'll cost over 130 bucks just to diagnose the car's p0420 code, but when she calls me later the tells me about the recall. Then when I get there, she tells me it's completely free, and if that doesn't fix the p0420 code it's definitely the cat. I have been worried about both the tank and the cat for months, asking God what to do and waiting on The Lord. His favor was on me yesterday, and I got the recall early.

They most likely preformed the TSB not the recall. It's a very similar procedure from talking to one of my Ford Master Tech buddies. However the recall isn't available yet.

Sent from another garage.

I just got the email on my CARFAX report today. Although it’s now an active recall, it does say that status: “Remedy not available yet”.
