Ford Motor Company is recalling 6,322 model year 2011-2015 Ford F-350, F-450, and F-550 trucks manufactured February 22, 2010, to January 30, 2015, and equipped with ambulance or fire engine preparation packages.
The vehicles may detect an incorrect Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor (EGT) fault indicating that the vehicle is too hot, causing the engine management system to shut down the engine and prevent its immediate restart.
Engine shut down and a subsequent cool down period may delay medical treatment or assistance to those needing it, increasing their risk of injury.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will update the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on May 11, 2015.
Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S09.
