- steering issue most likely related to 20E04 recall work, as they need to remove the steering shaft for unfettered access to the EGR cooler assembly. Check your parts list to ensure there is a Bolt listed = this is a one-time use that must be replaced (cannot be re-used). @Laytunes
just mentioned that his steering is much better after his 20E04 recall = he is thinking that they didn't reassemble his steering assembly after the first 18E02 recall.
As for the engine ticking at idle, I don't see what in the 20E04 recall could be the root cause of this. Only reports of engine ticking that I recall is after Ford rebuilt the oil pump in @lawdog
's truck in attempt to fix Low Oil Pressure Message?
which we have since determined is being caused by the nub on the rubber stopper in the oil filter assembly being sheared off by improper filter installation. #SaveTheNub! #SnubTheRub!
I'd bring it back to your dealer and report neither existed prior to 20E04 warranty work and let them diagnose. Please report back with anything they may find on either issue!
