Yes, last week when I contacted my dealer about doing the egr valve she told me it popped up. It does not show up in my Ford Pass ap yet.

Wondering if it is a variation of Code P2201 @ 20,000 miles as there were multiple TSBs prior to this that never popped up on my Ford Pass or otherwise.
Service Action: PCM Reflash w/o any wrenching or parts involved

Great question; I'm bringing in my 2018 F-150 Diesel for the EGR issue where a washer can come loose and be ingested into the engine! YES, this needs to be fixed. But when they mentioned there was also a "powertrain control module reprograming" update available I asked for the details. The tech did not have the information. What I think is an ECU issue (the tech on the phone could not confirm what the update was) I was skeptical. Not willing to have the reprogramming until I understand what will be updated. More to follow...

Follow up to my previous post. After speaking to the techs at the dealership about the powertrain control module update I decided to make the update. I do not have any technical details or data to backup what I am saying so take this for what it's worth. From what I understand this update was to adjust the shift points between 1-2-3 gear. I it's hard for me to fully say but I think I notice an overall improvement in shifting smoothness. There were times when going from a stop, (driving out of my work parking lot this would happen every time) I would go up a slight hill and start going down a hill slightly, foot off the gas (all in the span of about 4-5 seconds) and it would seam like the truck was confused what gear it should be in. It would clankly shift and the truck would lurch. This seems to have been fixed. I also notice overall smoothness which I can't really quantify. I do not see any reason not to get this update, hope this perspective helps.

Good to know! Hopefully the dealerships will have more information if the FordPass app doesn't. Thanks for the update.

I have to agree with your assessment and description. Just got my truck back last evening from the dealer. I had been having the searching for what gear would be right when starting out from a stop. Seems MUCH smoother since the update. So that's a good thing. Granted I drove it all of 8 miles, so far...
Later,

Has anybody seen a difference in MPGs since getting the 20E07 update?

It would be nice to know just what they are doing with this recall. On another forum (Recall 20E07 - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums) the guys that had the recall done are reporting much poorer MPGs afterwards.
Knew a guy with a Dodge ecodiesel and he said it had 2 program recalls, he lost MPG after both? Not agreeing or anything, just maybe its a possibility?

And... full stop. Luckily the service manager checked to verify before performing the recall on my truck. Ford has ordered a complete stop on performing these recalls, apparently because it wasn't having the desired effect for some vehicles on which it was done. Not sure what that is or why; the service manager where I took my truck had no more information.

@navyR113 - thanks for posting the Dealer recall letter, as at least these provide more information than nothing-at-all. Any forum member that posts a scan of a Dealer or Owner recall letter earns a thumbs-up "Like" from me!

Further down the letter has a REASON FOR THIS EMISSION RECALL section, so at least we know this is related to an Emission System, and not anything to do with Transmission shifting issue as a few members may have thought...

If you do read down in the SERVICE ACTION section, the letter does refer to a firmware level for the Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system = definitely Emission System related, so @Laytunes was correct in his assertion.

Jury still out if this was the true fix for my P2201 code but I could see how this could affect fuel economy as @apezz alluded to, though this is only a F150 Diesel issue (no SCR system on any gasoline powered F150s)

Hopefully it helps with the SCR system, as my DEF consumption seems to have been higher than normal for the last few thousand miles, though that could have been due to the cold.

Is it back? I had my truck in today at the dealer for some other work, and the work order says they checked the truck, and recall 20e07 - pcm reprogram was applicable, to which they performed. The work order says 20E07C 0.4W. I never did bring it in for the recall before they canceled it, and it wasn't caught either when I had it in for service back in march.
