Compatibility Issues with Fuel Injection Pumps in Ford F-Series Trucks

American diesel fuel is different than European diesel – who knew? – and that difference may be causing headaches for some Ford truck owners. The problem is this: the fuel pump that comes standard in the 2011-2017 Ford F-250, F-350 or F-450 trucks was originally built for European cars and more importantly, European diesel, which is generally thicker and more viscous than American fuel. Bosch’s CP4 fuel injection pump is said to be struggling to lift enough fuel to lubricate itself, and as a result, the pump is running dry and allowing metal to rub against metal. If successful, a class action could help drivers get back some of the money they were forced to spend on repairs; drivers are reportedly shelling out anywhere between $8,000 and $20,000 after finding that their trucks shut off while in motion and/or were unable to be restarted.
