Safety recall for select 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles with 6.7-liter engine and 10R140 transmission
A fractured damper plate could cause the engine to stall and require increased brake pedal effort when coming to a stop. The engine can be restarted, and mobility may be regained if the driver shifts to neutral or park. However, there could be an unexpected, aggressive reengagement when shifting to drive or reverse and the potential for another engine stall. The vehicle will continue to exhibit these symptoms until the service fix is completed.
This condition can increase the risk of a crash. Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.
This action affects 13 vehicles in the United States and two in Canada.
Affected vehicles were built at Kentucky Truck Plant from Jan. 13 to Feb. 19, 2020, and at Ohio Assembly Plant on Jan. 29, 2020.
Dealers will replace the transmission. The Ford reference number for this recall is 20S33.
Affected vehicles were built with a transmission torque-converter damper plate that was not tempered, resulting in a brittle damper plate that may fracture.
