SERVICE ACTION
Before demonstrating or delivering any new in-stock vehicles involved in this recall, dealers are to
perform the following steps:
1. Check for DTCs P0420, P1450, P0443, P0452, P0456, P0460 and/or P2196.
2. Check for customer complaints regarding any of the following?
a. inaccurate fuel gauge indication
b. inaccurate DTE
c. drivability concerns such as hesitation, rough idle, or loss of power
3. Check for available powertrain control module (PCM) software update and reprogram the PCM
using IDS Release 111.04 or higher. Some vehicles may already have the latest software.
a. Software is currently not available for 2013-2014 Focus ST vehicles, do not attempt repair at this time.
4. If Yes for steps #1 or #2 above:
a. replace the CPV
b. inspect evaporative emissions vapor canister for liquid fuel, and replace if present
c. inspect fuel tank for signs of deformation (the allowable specification (25mm or 1inch, upward), and replace the fuel tank and fuel delivery module if present.
This service must be performed on all affected vehicles at no charge to the vehicle owner.
They don't list the exact criteria other than an owner complaint about a rough idle.

Quote:
RENTAL VEHICLES
Rental vehicles are not approved for this program.
Ford has not issued instructions to stop selling/delivering or driving used vehicles under this safety recall. Owners can continue to safely drive their vehicles if they maintain at least 1/2 tank of fuel until their vehicle has this safety recall completed.
Part shortages do not qualify for rental vehicles for this program
So as a double whammy the 13-14 ST is not able to be fixed at this time and they still said no rental cars, though with the extended service contract for the ST at least should qualify for day one rental car coverage, if they don't try to weasel out of it.

Except they expect only 4% to actually need parts changed, which seems low, and that they plan to only fix them via software so it indicates a fault rather than actually replacing the parts regardless unless it shows the codes or owner complaint.

Quote:
Less than 4% of the affected vehicle population is expected to require an evaporative
emissions vapor canister, fuel pump module, or fuel tank replacement. To help avoid large
backorders, ordering excess inventory is not recommended.

I want to know where they're taking this measurement from.

Hmmm, ya know, I might just straight up ignore it. Its not causing an issue right now, and reprogramming the PCM would also mean that id potentially have to redo my tune.

True. Just replace the part yourself and submit for a reimbursement on the valve.
