Our Quick Take:
A gasoline leak could develop.
What Should You Do?
Ford will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning February 28, 2014. If you don't receive notification you feel you should have, please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. The Ford recall number is 13S13.
Vehicles equipped with a 2.0L engine are being recalled because a crack may develop in the fuel line pulse damper housing. This could result in a fuel odor, weepage, or a continuous leak while the fuel system is pressurized. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel line with one that does not include a damper. This recall supersedes NHTSA recall #12V438000. All vehicles repaired under the previous recall need to have the current remedy applied.
