Ford recalls

 

For Models: Ford F-150, Ford F-250

Engine, July 29, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles sold or currently registered in states using corrosive chemicals to de-ice the roads may have fuel tank straps that can rust prematurely and fail. If the fuel tank were to shift as a result of a broken strap, the fuel lines could separate or the fuel tank could contact the ground. In either case, a fuel leak could develop, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank straps with straps that have increased corrosion protection. Early in the campaign, if replacement straps are not available, dealers may install a cable support under the strap as an interim repair or a steel reinforcement over the existing strap as a permanent repair. This recall is expected to begin September 12, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11S21.

For Models: Ford Five Hundred, Mercury Montego

Engine, July 7, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some fuel tanks may not have consistent welds between the fuel tank and the fuel filler neck, affecting the strength of the joint. In the event of a severe rear impact, an improper weld can result in a crack in the joint. This could illuminate the Check Engine Light, cause a fuel odor, or allow fuel to leak out. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel tanks to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on August 15, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11S20.

For Models: Ford E-250, Ford E-350, Ford Excursion, Ford Ranger

Electrical & Lights, July 7, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

An internal fault may develop within the multi-function turn signal switch. This can affect turn signal, tail, hazard, and/or brake light operation. Non-functioning exterior lights could increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the multi-function switch to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on August 15, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11C18.

For Models: Ford E-150, Ford E-250, Ford E-350

Engine, May 27, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Fifteen vehicles using the Roush liquid propane autogas fuel system may develop a propane leak. This condition is a result of a mis-machined valve in the propane system. A propane leak increases the risk of a fire. Roush will replace the defective valve with a correctly machined one. No notification schedule is available at this time.

Body, Interior & Misc., April 18, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On vehicles equipped with a power driver's seat, the seat track worm gear may fracture. This could result in unintended seat movement in the event of a crash or other case of severe loading, which may increase the risk of injury to the driver. Dealers will inspect the driver's seat track and replace it if necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on May 2, 2011. The Ford recall number is 11C16.

For Models: Ford F-150, Lincoln Mark LT

Body, Interior & Misc., February 21, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The clock spring jumper wire behind the driver's air bag may come into contact with the lower horn plate, resulting in damage to the wiring. If this occurs, the air bag warning light may illuminate or the driver's air bag could deploy unexpectedly, increasing the risk of injury or a loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace the jumper wire with a new design, which includes a protective mesh cover. This recall is expected to begin on February 28, 2011.

For Models: Ford Ranger

Engine, February 21, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The engine fuel line near the throttle body may contact the edge of the shield, chafing the fuel line. This can result in a fuel odor or leak, increasing the risk of a fire.

For Models: Ford F-150

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The door handle spring retainer may break, which can prevent the door handle from returning to the stowed position.
