Issue: Some 2016 Explorer vehicles built on or before 31-Jan-2016 may exhibit a pop or creak noise from the right front mounting bolt of the front subframe. This condition may be due to a mispositioned weld between the barrel nut and the subframe mounting bracket.
Issue: Some 2016-2017 F-650/F-750 vehicles equipped with a 6.7L dieselengine may exhibit an illuminated malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) with diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) P246C and/or P2463. Performing a diesel particulate filter (DPF) manual regeneration using the appropriate Fordscan tool will fail resulting in a loss of communication error.
Issue: Some 2018 F-150 vehicles equipped with a 2.7L EcoBoost built on or before 12-Jul-2018 with greater than 500 miles may exhibit an illuminated MIL with diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) P0300, P0316, P0301-P0306, P2196, P2198, P0171, and/or P0174 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM).
Issue: Some 2018 EcoSport vehicles equipped with AWD and built on or before 12-Apr-2018 may exhibit a ratcheting/clicking type noise from the driveshaft area when reversing under certain load conditions. This may be due to the front U-joint on the driveshaft having a high working angle.
