My 1998 ford f-150 Fits The Summary Of The Nhtsa Campaign Id # 97v171000. My Truck Is Currently In With The Dealer For Another Reason, Including The Speed Control Recall. However, They Will Not Fix The Gear Position Indicator Because They State It Is Not A ford Recall, Regardless Of What The Nhtsa Site Indicates As A (recall Date Of 10/07/97) Because ford Has To Make A Recall Notice. My Indicator Is Off By One (it Says I’m In ‘r’ When Rally In ‘p’ And So Forth). ‘i Understand Not Doing A Mass Recall For This, But When A Vehicle Is In For A Mandatory Recall Of The Speed Control Catching Fire, One Would Think They Would Repair A Vehicle That Is Experiencing Another Known Defect As Indicated In Nhtsa Campaign 97v171000. Also, It Is In For Damage Related To The fuel Tank, And Even Though They Are Replacing The fuels Tank And Many Other Items Attached To It (i.e. Lines Etc.) They Don’t Feel It Is Warranted To Address Another Nhtsa Recall Related To The Leaf Spring Potentially Puncturing The Tank. That Is Campaign #98v161000. Regards, Steve. *tr
