i was driving the truck away from a traffic light. when the truck reached approximately 20 mph. the engine shut down completely. i lost forward motion, steering control and braking power. i was able to wrestle the truck off the road and into a parking lot. this is a ford truck powered by a 6.7 ford diesel engine., the truck is generally used to tow a 13000 pound fifth wheel. if i had been towing the fifth wheel, the outcome would surely have been a disaster. problem turned out to be a totally failed bosch cp4-2 high pressure fuel pump. the pump slowly fails. as the pump travels the path to total destruction, the operator has no warning that the engine will suddenly die. when the truck quits, the operator has lost power steering and power brakes on a 8,500 to 23,500 pound vehicle. *tr

1 operating hour after coming down a 7% grade my 1999 f350 truck with camper suffered complete brake failure due to a corroded brake line. the fault occurred in a clip where moisture and abrasives had been held against the steel brake line. nearby diesel fuel lines exhibited no rust. because ford used steel that can rust for the critical brake line, my family almost lost our lives and potentially caused the deaths of others. the replacement left par of the original brake line in place. *tr
