Ford has recalled certain 1986-1995 Taurus and Mercury Sable models and 1988-1994 Lincoln Continental models in high corrosion, cold weather states because the rear subframe mount plate nuts may corrode and fail, causing the subframe to drop. If the subframe drops, loss of vehicle control and functionality can occur. Dealers will install subframe rear mount bolts, reinforcement plates, and plate nuts.
The fuel line may leak, which is a potential fire hazard. Dealers will inspect the fuel lines for damage and cracks, and replace the affected fuel lines.
Ford has recalled 1999 Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles because the retainer clip that secures the master cylinder push rod to the brake pedal arm may be either missing or partially installed. This could cause increased braking effort, and may result in an accident. Dealers will inspect the master cylinder push rod and verify proper clip installation.
Ford has recalled 1997-1998 Expedition, F150, F250, and Lincoln Navigator vehicles because of lug nuts that do not clamp the wheels securely enough to the wheel hubs. These lug nuts can loosen and cause the wheels to separate from the vehicle. Dealers will inspect the wheel studs and replace the lug nuts with a new design.
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.
