Default CMP (CPS) Recall - 7.3L

Allright guys -- just joined and doesn't seem like anyone has posted this info here, so here goes

Ford is RECALLING certain trucks that are prone to CPS failure (who woudla thunk it )

Here is some info I found from another site (Strokertech brought it to their attention) and a place to check your vin for the recall if you don't want to wait!

(the black CPS is being recalled and replaced with the gray one)

Check your VIN HERE: Ford Recall

TO: All U.S. Ford and Lincoln Mercury Dealers

Certain 1997 - 2003 F-Super Duty, Excursion, and E-Series Vehicles
Equipped with 7.3L Diesel Engines
Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor Inspection / Replacement
Vehicle Line Model Years Assembly Plant Production Dates

Affected vehicles are identified in OASIS. In addition, for a list of vehicles assigned to your dealership,
visit https://web.fsavinlists.dealerconnection.com. This information will be available on December 04,
In some of the affected vehicles, the Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor may fail due to circuit
degradation. If the CMP Sensor should fail, the engine may stall. In the event of an engine stall, a
crash could result without warning. A new CMP Sensor with improved reliability is now available.
Dealers are to inspect the CMP Sensor to verify which design level sensor is installed in the affected
vehicles, and replace all prior level sensors. This service must be performed on affected vehicles at no
charge to the vehicle owner.
Parts to repair this condition are currently not available in sufficient quantities to service all of the
affected vehicles. Therefore, to ensure that an ample supply of parts is available, owners of affected
vehicles will be notified in separate phase mailings over several months. Phase mailing will begin the
week of December 17, 2007; prioritized by age of vehicle. Dealers should repair any affected vehicles
that arrive at their dealerships, whether or not the customer has received a letter.

Why, so we can replace the gray one on the side of the road later?

Recall or not I don't trust the FoMoCo part.

I'm running the blue one from Navistar and everyone else should be, too. Of course I replaced about 55 of the POS 12K073 Ford sensors from '95.4 - '00 before finding this one about 7 years ago....

Navistar PN 1807339C92 if anyone is interested....(that is the newest PN I am aware of)

Thanks for the info though--not trying to take anything away from that.

Hi, i'm from ford-trucks.com (ford truck enthusiast).

The blue 7.3 navistar CPS unit is said to be more rugged than the ford CPS, however, it is still prone to failure, as 7.3 diesel engines experience different operating conditions in a pickup truck, such as frequent heat/cool cycles that may cause some parts of the engine to degrade quicker than a larger truck.

The "new" CPS is supposed to be better than any other CPS you can currently buy.
