Ford Taurus recalls

 

For Models: Ford Taurus, Mercury Sable

Suspension & Steering, June 30, 1998

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has extended the warranty on the front coil springs on 1993 Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles registered or sold in cold weather corrosion states. This is in conjunction with a safety recall to protect tires in the event of spring failure. In the event of fracture through the year 2001, dealers will replace both front springs.

Engine, June 17, 1998

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1996 Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles that have had a fuel tank replaced as part of Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) 97-17-9. An 18-gallon tank was mistakenly installed instead of 16-gallon tank. The tank also has a second valve location where a shipping plug is installed, which could leak and possibly start a fire. Dealers will replace the tank with the correct unit.

For Models: Ford Taurus, Lincoln Continental, Lincoln Mark VIII, Mercury Sable

Electrical & Lights, April 15, 1998

Ford has recalled certain 1993-1994 Taurus, Mercury Sable, Lincoln Continental, and Lincoln Mark VII vehicles for a concern with the headlight switch. The headlight switch may cause the headlights to flash as a result of an internal issue. Dealers will replace the headlight switch and the wiring harness if necessary.

For Models: Ford Contour, Ford Taurus, Lincoln Continental, Lincoln Navigator, Lincoln Town Car, Mercury Mystique, Mercury Sable

Electrical & Lights, March 23, 1998

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1997-1998 Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles and 1998 Contour, Mercury Mystique, Lincoln Navigator, and Town Car models to provide owners with proper instructions on how to aim their headlamps. If there is a need to adjust the headlamps, during headlamp replacement for example, there is a lack of proper documentation on how to properly perform the adjustment. Ford will mail vehicle owners a new owner guide containing revised aiming instructions.

For Models: Ford Taurus, Ford Windstar, Mercury Sable

Drive Train, June 30, 1997

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1997 Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles and 1997-1998 Windstar vehicles for a possible transmission leak.

Dealers will inspect the transmission and replace the affected servo covers.

For Models: Ford Taurus, Lincoln Continental, Mercury Sable

Drive Train, April 23, 1997

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1991-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models equipped with the 3.8L V6 and 1991-1994 Continental models for an issue with the speed control cable. In cold weather states, the speed control cable could freeze. This could cause the accelerator cable to stick. To deter moisture and ice build-up, dealers will add a rubber boot to the speed control cable.

For Models: Ford Taurus, Ford Tempo, Lincoln Continental, Mercury Sable, Mercury Topaz

Engine, March 31, 1997

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1992-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models with 3.8L engines, 1994-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models with 3.0L engines, 1992-1994 Tempo and Mercury Topaz models with 3.0L engines, 1994 Tempo and Mercury Topaz models with 2.3L engines, and 1992-1994 Lincoln Continental models in certain cold weather states for an issue with the engine electric cooling fan. During high winds, low temperatures, and drifting snow, the fan could become blocked or frozen with snow. This could cause the fan not to rotate and ultimately overheat. Dealers will install a harness with a circuit breaker to protect the fan motor from overheating.

For Models: Ford Taurus, Lincoln Continental, Mercury Sable

Drive Train, October 9, 1996

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1996 Taurus, Mercury Sable, and Lincoln Continental vehicles for a concern with the transmission park mechanism. In some vehicles, the park pawl is not rotating as necessary to enter the park gear. This could cause the vehicle to roll out of control. Dealers will inspect the park pawl shaft for rotation. Shafts with restricted rotation will have a shorter shaft installed that will not restrict rotation.

For Models: Ford Taurus

Engine, October 2, 1996

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1996 Taurus vehicles for an inspection of the fuel pressure regulator. Some fuel pressure regulators were damaged during manufacturing, causing a possible diaphragm rupture and fuel leak, which can lead to a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel pressure regulator and replace suspect units.

For Models: Ford Taurus, Ford Windstar, Lincoln Continental, Mercury Sable

Drive Train, September 23, 1996

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Ford has recalled certain 1996-1997 Taurus, Windstar, Mercury Sable, and Lincoln Continental vehicles for a concern with the park mechanism in the transmission. The park pawl mechanism may not engage even though the shifter indicates the vehicle is in "Park." This could cause the vehicle to move unexpectedly and cause a crash or injury. Dealers will repair the parking pawl bracket in the transaxle.
