Icon4 Duratec owners please read!!!!!

Ford has issued a recall for the 2010 rangers equiped with the duratec for the throttle body cover rubbing on a fuel line.My truck is a 2008 and the cover has rubbed a good way though.Unfortunately for me im 200 miles out of warrenty and not covered by the recall so ive gotta fix it myself.I went to ford and got the part number for the fuel line its Ford part # BL5Z 9J338A cost around $60.The rubber section that is damaged by the cover is not replacable and the whole line must be replaced.Then the cover needs to be trimed to properly clear the line to prevent future damage.

So if you have a 2.3L duratec 2001-2010 go check so your truck dosnt go up in flames.

The recall is 11S17 and has unlimited mileage. Meaning reguardless of the mileage on your vehicle, they will repair it.

Since yours is a 2008, it falls out of the 10/15/10-05/19/10 build dates. I would find out how to contact the Ford recall center or SSSC (special support service center) and see what they can do for you. I work at the Ford Technical Hotline now so ill see if i can drum up anything

I dont think ford can do anything I have to deal with mazda.Which i called today but they said being out of warrenty and no recall placed on the 2008's i would have to pay.But yes see what you can do i think at a minimum they should check them to see if the recall affects more years and the mazdas.
