I Recently Read That Nhtsa Was Investigating ford F 150 From 1997 To 2001 For Rusting Gas Tank Straps That Effected 1.4 Million Trucks. I Have A ford 1998 f-250 That Had Rusted Gas Tank Straps. One Strap Let Go And The Tank Moved Out Of Position. I Replaced It Myself, But I Don’t Know If It Was Done Correctly Or With The Proper Safety Protection. Did ford Issue A Recall On This? Will They Inspect The Vehicle To See If It Was Done Correctly? Is There A Cost To The Owner For Any Of This?
