RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 2010 model year Ford Explorer, Explorer Sport Trac, Fusion, and Fusion Hybrid vehicles along with Mercury Mountaineer, Milan, and Milan Hybrid vehicles for an issue with the front seat backs equipped with manual recliner mechanisms. In the event of a crash, the seat back and head restraint may move rearward, increasing the risk of injury. This is due to incorrect specification in the design of the gear plate teeth on the seat back recliner. Dealers will replace the manual recliners free of charge.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford is recalling sixty-five 2008–2009 E-350 and 2009 E-450 cutaway models equipped with school bus prep packages for failing to comply with federal safety standards on fuel system integrity. The vehicles may not have been assembled with fuel tank protection brackets, which can cause the fuel tank to leak if a crash occurs. In the presence of an ignition source, this could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect and install brackets free of charge.

For Models: Ford F-150

Electrical & Lights, May 13, 2009

Suspension & Steering, February 27, 2009

Brakes, June 27, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 2005–2006 F-150 and Lincoln Mark LT trucks for a concern with the brake booster vacuum supply hose. On some vehicles, the hose may swell where it attaches to the intake manifold, causing it to lose retention force. This may cause the hose to become detached from the fitting, which can result in reduced vehicle braking power. Dealers will replace the rubber hose on the brake booster vacuum supply assembly.

For Models: Ford F-250 Super Duty, Ford F-350 Super Duty

Engine, May 23, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On certain trucks, the fuel tank may move forward in a frontal impact, possibly damaging the fuel delivery module and allowing fuel to spill.

Drive Train, April 24, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On 158 vehicles intended for limousine service, the tire pressure monitoring system may not have been properly calibrated. As a result, the tire pressure warning light will not illuminate as expected. Dealers will reconfigure the tire pressure monitor system thresholds to the appropriate pressures. This recall is scheduled to begin on April 23, 2008. The Ford recall number is 08C03.

For Models: Ford F-250 Super Duty

Body, Interior & Misc., April 16, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The welded lift blocks may compress due to over tightening of the u-bolts or excess vehicle payloads, reducing the clamping force of the u-bolts. This could result in shifting and damage to the rear axle and drive shaft. Truxx will replace the affected lift blocks with non-welded aluminum or cast iron blocks to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin on April 16, 2008. The Truxxx recall number is 08-01BLK.
