2018 Ford F-650, F-750: Recall Alert

2018 Ford F-650

By Patrick Masterson

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,500 model-year 2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 trucks with hydraulic brake systems built at the Ohio Assembly Plant between Jan. 26 and March 13, 2018

The Problem: Some primary and/or secondary brake circuit hose assemblies located between the master cylinder and hydraulic control unit may not have the specified anti-corrosion plating on the metal ferrules that attach a flexible braided steel hose to metal tubes, which can lead to premature corrosion of the brake hose ferrules, brake fluid leakage and reduced brake function, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the brake hose assembly with parts that contain properly plated ferrules for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

Frank had a nervous breakdown after reading this article. I guess he couldn't take all of the negativity towards Ford. The ambulance just came and hauled him off to the psych ward at the nervous hospital as Karl Childers would say.

I read it, I still feel fine. Sorry I can't stoop down to your level.

Peace out.

FORD: FOREVER ON RECALL DUTY

Geeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzz........again shaking my head!

They just keep rolling in! Kinda like mayflies at my lake cabin in the month of May!

Will, one thing is for sure, FORD is consistent with their braking and fire issues.

Brake lines are rotting off 2018 trucks already! Wow what cheap cheap china trash Ford is! This like the 3 brake recall for these junker truck this year! LMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Drink the cool-aide some more tards.

" may not have the specified anti-corrosion plating on the metal ferrules that attach a flexible braided steel hose to metal tubes"

Ford does not manufacturer the brake lines, dumb dumb. You should read before you post those weeping comments.

Who's next.

Still on Ford trucks, Ford still okay it to be use on their cheap junk trucks.

WHO'S NEXT!!!!!!!!!!

Frank seriously!!?? "Ford don't make them" πŸ˜‚. So because Ford didn't make it, they don't know what's being installed on the truck?

@b!tCh@$$

How is Ford responsible? The manufacturer didn't apply the anti-corrosive compound.

You're a failure, T00L

Yep Papajim was right, you do have more serious issues than I thought. You are do for a recall as well, the manufacturer forgot to give you your meds but it's not your fault.

I see you like to deviate from my initial question.

We're done here.

Again seriously? πŸ˜‚ How can they be responsible??? Hahaha, ya how silly of me to think they're not responsible for selling something with there name it! Go take your meds

It's called quality control but I guess Ford doesn't have anything like that..

Try not to ask any more questions till you take your meds

Go take your life, it’s useless

Wow there's another educational comment from Frank! That's a good response to the question I answered...you also need to be quality control checked, but let me guess, your not responsible for that comment just because it had your name on it...πŸ˜‚

Chevy and Ram doesn't make a truck that big and if they did they would have problems too,
heck! they would have bigger problems

everybody forget about the ball joints falling out of the Ram Heavy Duty?

2 in one day. So much for Ford bias here, although in the big picture both are small and different plants/models.

At least it will get fixed and nobody's hurt. Unlike the massive cruise control fire issue Ford had.

Remember kids Fiat has to do the biggest truck buy back of all time so far and GM takes 2 or 3 attempts to fix your ignition spring while sending recall notices to people who are literally already dead from it.

Quality Control is done at the manufacturer level, where they actually manufacturer the brake line. Not at the Ford Assembly plant when it's already very late, this is why recalls are issued.

Ford and Toyota with their rotting metal.

I wonder why nobody is on here anymore? I hope it is not because Papa, TNT and myself ruined this site. It seems as if its just us talking the same garbage.

Its funny when toyota has a recall on a part that came from a supplier it's the suppliers fault but since it's Ford, GM, or Chrysler it's thier fault no matter who made the part.

Recalls happen. If the recalls are delt within a timely matter it doesn't bother me.

No, it is people who hijack other user names and spew garbage. I request that PUTC block the I.P. Address of the individual who posted the above comment.

Interesting. Ford is the only maker of a F750 type of truck out of the β€œ Big 3”?
Not big by Global Standards, strange GM and FCA do not

@Robt Ryan

There are quite a few specialty firms building this sort of truck. Ford would not be the only one.

30.4 million ignition switches which led to ~120 deaths. Far more people have died due to worse safety defects. Especially since many of the deaths involved alcohol, distracted driving, 10 lbs of stuff (quite frequently a 18" long lanyard to go with it) dangling from the keyring, etc.

I don't see what the big deal is with this issue. The supplier either didn't apply the anti-corrosion coating or using the wrong anti-corrosion coating, causing galvanic corrosion. Much different from Toyota selling decades of vehicles that very obviously had a frame rot issue, then turning around and blaming the frame supplier after the fact.

Ford only just became a maker of a F750 (class 7/8) truck in 2016. Before then the F-650 and F-750 were being built by Navistar in a plant in General Escobedo, Mexico as part of a joint venture called Blue Diamond Truck Co. Funny enough, even after Ford began production of their own 6.7 Powerstroke in 2010 down in Mexico, the Ford F-650/750 continued to use Cummins engines and Allison transmissions until sometime in 2015.


I read it, I still feel fine. Sorry I can't stoop down to your level.

Peace out.

That's not what the paramedics said when they were loading you up in the ambulance. :)

Yes Navistar was building Ford 650 and 750 trucks. Now Ford has brought them back in house. Now Navistar will build trucks for GM. This is called follow the leader.

@ FrankinFl
Follow the leader? In medium duty trucks?? Wake up, Ford is far from the leader in this category

GM is having trucks built by Navistar as Ford was doing. This is Ford leading and GM following.

Lol Ahh your one of those...Its getting better but why is the Powerstroke always following the Duramax in HD comparisons?

@ Sean

Ford has tried 3 different engines and still can't beat the 1 duramax engine GM has produced! Now thats funny!!

Hey look at the babies crying again, give it up.

Ya Frank we're crying cuz you guys can't keep up...you keep proving how knowledgeable you are. Your the guy that continually gets ran off, what happened last night? You didn't answer my question, but I understand, I would tuck and run too if I was in a Ford 5.4 LOL

I feel bad for you, you're the laughing stock on this site. You must like it though

GM is leading by making sure the Duramax is installed, not a powerjoke.

@ Sean

Really.. Its 6.6L displacement! Thats what I'm getting at! No need to get defensive and insult like Frank!

Unlike Ford's attempt at 6.0, 6.4. And 6.7...thats what I was comparing.

Yes really...Only one of those engines is Ford genius. If you’re β€œ getting at β€œ what you claim, cut to chase and and spit it out ( or do you swallow your BF’s jizz? )

You GMshills are fish in a barrel

@ Sean

All three of those engines are used by Ford,.....fords genius idea to have someone else build the 6.0 and 6.4! Geezzz. I didn't know I had to go that in depth for your brain to comprehend that but I guess next time I will write a novel for you!

@ Sean

Also I don't think this is the real Sean, bc someone else uses that catch phrase "fish in a barrel a lot". Hmmm. Must be another clown with no b@lls using another user name. Pathetic and cowardly

@ TNT
It is Frank, he definitely doesn't have any balls in his 5.4!! He's too easy. All his phrases, "GMshills"..."Light bulbs brighter". I've never seen a guy talk so much about jizz and swallowing, you know what's on his mind LMFAO

And GM genius idea had to have Isuzu build the old Duramax. And current GM idea is to have someone building their entire medium duty Silverado 4500 and 5500 - the same company you’re harping on that built the old 6.0/6.4 PowerStroke.

Ha

I didn't want to say it earlier but since you did, Ford's Powerstroke got beat by an Isuzu?? That's really embarrassing...Tuck and Run 5.4, you can't keep up

What? No comment on being Frank..? Exactly! If it wasn't Frank you would respond to the accusation.

@ Frank the Fake
You are good at hiding πŸ‘
The point of this conversation is the Powerstroke can't keep up with the Duramax..since day 1. Just like Frank in his 5.4!

It wasn’t Fords Powerstroke. It was Navistar you bonehead.
