The powertrain control module software used to service these vehicles in accordance with safety recall 18S32 was incomplete.
Is this an update to the previous 18S32 program?Vehicles that have not yet had safety recall 18S32 service performed are not affected by this action and will receive updated software when they are serviced under the existing 18S32 program.
I never took my car in for 18S32 because of the following message:The Ford reference number for this recall is 19S22.
I'm a little confused here by this new Recall.Status: 12 - RECALL INCOMPLETE. REMEDY NOT YET AVAILABLE.
Slight correction - they only replace the purge valve if there's an issue. In my case, they only updated the PCM software.Novus,
Ford has a "repair" procedure for 18S32. After checking a few things, they replace the purge valve and update the software. Apparently, the software update was wrong for a few specific cars.
True, but there are several ways to get them to replace the valve, per Ford:Slight correction - they only replace the purge valve if there's an issue. In my case, they only updated the PCM software.
I assume (and I probably shouldn't) that most folks within this recall have one or more of the issues in #1 or #2.1. Check for DTCs P0420, P1450, P0443, P0452, P0456, P0460 and/or P2196.
2. Check for customer complaints regarding any of the following?
---inaccurate fuel gauge indication
---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.
4. If Yes for steps #1 or #2 above:
---replace the CPV
---inspect evaporative emissions vapor canister for liquid fuel, and replace if present
---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.
I'd assume the opposite from dealers. If your car isn't throwing the right code, they'll do like with mine - update your software and send you away. I got sick of these constant evap valve threads, so I recently spent $40 and replaced mine. I figured my original was overdue for failing.True, but there are several ways to get them to replace the valve, per Ford:
I assume (and I probably shouldn't) that most folks within this recall have one or more of the issues in #1 or #2.
Interesting. Keep us posted. Aren't there are two fuel pumps on these vehicles due to the high pressure needed for the DI? Do you know which pump seems to be going?So Tom and I just started the tuning process again, and on my very first datalog, the short term fuel trim was showing the engine going lean. I had a value of up to 1.25, which I take is 25% lean? 1.00 is lambda if I'm not mistaken.
Just before we restarted the process, I'm noticing an intermittent hum/whine coming from under the car. Fuel pump dying? I did a datalog yesterday and the fuel trim had gone up to 1.47 during the 5 minute idle. Issue shows up after the engine warms up 1/4. I'm surprised the fuel trim being that high doesn't set a CEL. That's very lean. Sooner or later probably.
I replaced the purge valve earlier in the spring when I heard the ticking and had intermittent lean. Dealer did the recall during clutch diagnostic. Fuel tank passed inspection. I'm not sure how hard this is to replace.
I've also had intermittent loss of power on rare occasions the past couple months, and a couple instances of erratic shifts/poor throttle response. Dealer just replaced my TCM during clutch replacement despite the fact that it hasn't failed. Starting to think my TCM was fine and the fuel pump made the tranny go AWOL a couple timesmn

My understanding (could be wrong) is that the high pressure pump is on the engine itself. The fuel tank also has its own pump inside of it. The sound appears to be coming from under the car on the passenger side (which is where the tank is obviously).Interesting. Keep us posted.
