Fire Threat Prompts Ford to Recall 390,783 Vehicles

Posted on

A whopping 390,783 Lincoln MKT, MKZ, and MKS vehicles, Police Interceptor Utility and Sedan vehicles, and Flex, Fusion, Taurus, and Explorer vehicles, all of the 2013 model year, are being recalled by Ford because of an issue that could imperil driver safety.  Cracks can apparently form in the fuel delivery module, a defect that might cause fuel to emanate from the unit.  If some type of open flame is in the vicinity of the leaked fuel, the threat of a fire becomes greater.  On July 15, the recall is set to start, at which point owners should be on the lookout for a notification from Ford.  Replacement of the affected component will be carried out by a dealer at no cost.
