Ford Windstar Recalls
Ford has recalled certain 1997 Taurus and Mercury Sable vehicles and 1997-1998 Windstar vehicles for a possible transmission leak. The low-intermediate servo cover may become detached, causing a fluid leak. Fluid leaking onto the catalytic converters could cause a fire. Dealers will inspect the transmission and replace the affected servo covers.
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.
