I Was Driving Home And All Of A Sudden There Was An Explosion Under The Hood And It Sounded Like Part Of The Exhaust System Gave Way. I Pulled Over And Found Out That A Spark Plug Had Blown Out Of The Head. The Only One To Ever Touch The Engine Was ford And That They Had Replaced A Spark Plug Several Years Ago. I Got On Line And Found Out There Are Literally Thousands Of These Spark Plug Ejections. I Was Wondering If There Was A Recall On The Problem ? The Fact That The Super-heated Air And Mixture Fuel Spraying All Over The Underneath Of The Hood Is A Extreme Danger, It Would Seem That Would Be A Safety Recall. *tr

This Is Regarding The Recall For The Straps Holding The Gas Tank On The ford F150 . ford Replaced The Straps In Feb. Of 2012, But Never Said Anything About The Corrosion On The Gas Tank That Was Caused From The Faulty Straps.. A Few Months After The Repair The Gas Tank Started To Leak Due To The Rust Where The Straps Were. I Brought The Vehicle Back To My ford Dealership And They Told Me That The Gas Tank Was Not Warranteed Under The Recall. This Is Rather Confusing. If The Faulty Straps Which ford Agreed To Replace Caused The Gas Tank To Rust And Leak, Why Would This Not Be Included In The Recall?? The Faulty Straps Caused The Corrosion Of The Gas Tank. This Is Clearly Explained In The Nhtsa Website. I Was Forced To Accept Aftermarket Parts In Order To Avoid The Full Price Of Approximately $2,000 For Repair. It Is Obvious That I Am Not The Only ford 150 Owner Who Has Been Forced To Replace Their Corroded Gas Tank Due To Defective Straps On ford‘s Part. We All Know A Leaky Gas Tank Is The Recipe For Disaster – Death. My Final Cost Was $540 – Only Because I Agreed To Use Aftermarket Parts. This Entire Situation Is A Disgrace. I Am Considering Bringing This Matter To The Attention Of The Media. Shame On ford. *tr

I Filled The Fuel Tank With Gas And Drove About 20 Miles. While Pulling Into A Restaurant At About 5 To 10 Mph I Went Through A Very Slight Dip. I Heard A Soft Thunk And Heard Something Dragging On The Ground. It Was Not Real Loud So I Slowly Pulled Into The Parking Lot. When I Looked Under My Vford f-150 I Noticed That The Gas Tank Had Dropped Due To Both Straps Breaking. The Rear Of The Tank Was Held Up By The Hose Going To The Gas Cap Area. Fortunately, This Did Not Happen At High Speed Or I May Not Be Around To Report The Incident. I Called ford And They State That This Vin Number Did Not Have Nay Recalls. The Customer Resource Person (800.392.3673 Option 1, 5, 4) Stated They Were Not Aware Of Any Government Number Where I Could Call In This Complaint. I Quickly Did A Web Search And Found This Number So I Find It Hard To Believe They Did Not Know About It. This Is A Very Serious Safety Issue That Could Very Easily Lead To Serious Injuries/death To Occupants Of The 2001 f-150.

0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died. Mileage was 152000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FTRW08L71K. FORD F-150 2001 problem was reported in SIOUX FALLS, SD. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 10 mph.
