Quick story... Bought used 2015 with 33,000 in Sept. 2017. In Oct. truck threw P04DB (CCV Code) so took it back to Ford. Ford did whatever they do, reset and said I should be good to go. Code threw again within 100 miles so back to ford I go. This time they said I needed new ccv vacuum pump (FC3Z-6A785-C). Thanks to this site I knew about the hall effect sensor on the manifold side.... OK makes sense. Problem was it is on national back order.... that was 5 months ago!! They told me to drive it until part was available but truck is noticeably louder and I've lost 1 mpg according to dash gauge. CEL has been on whole time, so besides not having remote start I'm concerned that if another problem pops up, I wouldn't even know. Part is available on internet for about $50. I'm about to fix it myself... but that's the reason I paid big money for the extended warranty so I wouldn't have to wrench on it. So is dealer blowing smoke up my ass, should I fix it, or just drive it and hope I don't start blowing seals. Frustrated!!

ou won't blow any seals. The sensor is meant to turn on the check engine light if the hose is disconnected. They failed frequently on 2015 engines. I wouldn't''t get too uppity over it and just drive the truck.

I am having the same issue with my 2014. Dealer told me the same, national backorder and drive the truck as is. I haven't noticed any difference in performance at all. I've been waiting about 1.5 months for the part. As long as the hose is hooked up you should be fine, it's just the sensor. my CEL comes on and goes off frequently. If it stays on too long I just clear the code myself.

Thanks for the info ... Haven't used this dealer before so I tend to question everything. Seems Ford would release an update to be able to at least shut off CEL since they have had so many issues.

I believe the sensor on the CCV is mandated by the government therefore shutting off the CEL by means of tuning it off through the software is not going to happen. By the way, the CCV assembly warranty coverage has been extended by:

Customer Satisfaction Program 17M04


Certain 2014-2016 Model Year F-250 – F-550 and 2016 Model Year F-650/F-750 Vehicles, With 6.7L Diesel Engine Crankcase Ventilation Oil Separator Assembly

This program extends the warranty coverage of the crankcase ventilation (CCV) oil separator assembly to 11 years of service or 120,000 miles from the warranty start date of the vehicle, whichever occurs first. If a vehicle has already exceeded either the time or mileage limits, this extended warranty coverage will last through August 31, 2018. Coverage is automatically transferred to subsequent owners.

VEHICLES COVERED BY THIS PROGRAM

  • 2014-2016 F-Super Duty built at the Kentucky Truck between March 19, 2013 through November 11, 2015
  • 2016 F-650/F-750 Super Duty built at the Ohio Truck Plant between January 21, 2015 through May 8, 2016

Great info Ford Doctor, thanks much!! I am dangerously close to 100,000 now, but my warranty claim is open at the dealer until they fix it, so I am covered either way.

My truck was at the dealer this week and they broke the news to me that the part is on national backorder with no expected due date. It's not a huge deal because it's not preventing me from driving or anything, but it's disappointing. I hate seeing the check engine light on.

FWIW, I just dropped the truck off this morning. They ordered my part on Feb 5th and it came in yesterday.
Thanks for the update. Need to make a call.

I’ve had my truck in three times for this now and the light just came on again. Waiting for a call back from the dealer.

My mileage has dropped by about 10% since this started.
