    Ford Announces Major Recall for Purge Valve Defect

    This looks like it may affect us. If so, I'm concerned this will screw with my FRPP Tune.

    As soon as I read this I logged into my owner.ford.com account. Sure enough confirmation this will affect us. I have a 2015 ST3. Bought Dec 2015, manufactured Apr/May 2015 if remember right.

    I do a lot of highway driving through the dead parts of Alberta. Would really suck if my car stalled and would not restart in the middle of a highway 2 hours away from anything during a cold winter. Pretty serious issue if you ask me.

    PCM update is the fix. I wonder if you flashed your AP tune back after the service was performed, if it would revert to software that that did not have the fix implemented.

    Woops, didn't think to check the news section, since it gets updated so infrequently.

    No I don't think reflashing back to your tune after letting them do their thing will affect it, as I believe this is gonna be more like a firmware update then a software update, if that makes any sense and I don't mean that literally, I mean that as an analogy. Software can be updated on something without effecting the firmware. Firmware is fixed data on something, software is interactive data meaning easily changeable.

    According to a post I saw from Stratified, the update may be changing the ROM on the ecu to one not supported by the AP's. They are waiting on a workaround with Cobb.

    I reached out to Stratified and they confirmed this. They are waiting to see what Ford does and to see if they will need to create new tunes based on a new rom.

    In my local FB group(Ewww) theres been some that have already had the issue, one guy claims he already has an update from Cobb. How much of this is true? Well its FB so probably none of it.
