Any good news about NOX recall?
This thread is now 11 pages long. The NOX recall has clearly caused some significant problems for some who got it. I suspect it thousands got the recall done and are suffering quietly, but I can only guess that there are many many more that are happier with it than without, perhaps because the "damage" is not as obvious for them.
I have not gotten the NOX done because the serious disadvantages seem to outweigh the minor inconvenience of occasional harsh shifting.
To help get Ford some useful collective information, could each of you with problems respond with answers to the following. I will keep a running score and hopefully with the results Cory can give the engineers more commonalities to look for. Hopefully we can get this done before winter fuel mix enters the equasion.
What model. 250, 350, 350 dually, 450?
2 or 4 wheel drive?
Manufacture date (on doorpost or original Window sticker)? (inportant)
Did Ford need to replace the NOX sensor? (important)
Did you regularly use cetane booster fuel additive before NOX?
Do you regularly use cetane booster fuel additive after NOX?
Post NOX, does more booster help reduce the complaint?
Primary reason for getting the recall
Rough shifting always
Rough shifting when cold
Just cause ford said I should
