In case you didn't already know, if you have had your CPS replaced prior to the recall, Ford is reimbursing us the cost of the repair. Mine went out the first month I had my truck and so I had a shop replace it. Ford is now sending me a $338 check!I have one new CPS and one good, but used CPS in my glovebox along with the tools to change 'em so for me there really isn't much of a purpose to having a Ford mech. change it for me. I haven't gone in for the recall nor do I plan to.
Wow, that would explain the recent posts in several different forums. There's been quite a few folks saying they have problems with the #8 cylinder.... failing CCT, SES lights, etc. Veeeerrrry interesting.
Pocket, I bought this new truck a couple weeks ago, when I test drove it and scanned with AE everything was fine. Before I left I had the CPS changed for no other reason but to satisfy the open recall. Drove 600 miles home only to "realize" the truck has a random slight miss at idle and has stumbled a couple times on moderate acceleration. Thinking it was my fault for not noticing earlier; not much of a big deal as I would get it straightened out eventually. After reading some stuff at TDS and now on here its got me thinking... and hoping. Would you mind posting up those links you found relating the new CPS to #8 issues. :ford:Wow, that would explain the recent posts in several different forums.

LMFAO JSM1 let me use a grey CPS once for some trouble shooting and it did just that made #8 miss.I don't think it did it on his truck or was un tested on anyone but mine but my truck shook and missed like crazy with that one he had.
