Ford Issues Three Separate Recalls, GT350 And GT350R Mustangs Included

Ford is conducting three separate safety recalls in North America, covering almost 600,000 vehicles between them.

The first one revolves around 8,026 units of the Mustang GT350 and Mustang GT350R, whose “engine oil cooler tube assemblies may have insufficient crimps on the hose that could lead to a hose separation and an oil leak”, as the automaker explains.

This condition could lead to engine failure and, in extreme cases, increase the risk of a fire, but the manufacturer is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue. The pony cars that will have to be taken back to the dealers were built at Flat Rock Assembly Plant from February 24, 2015, to August 30, 2016, and include 6,523 examples in the United States, 957 in Canada, 346 in Mexico, and 59 in federalized territories.

The second safety campaign is also the largest one, as it covers 411,663 units of the 2010-2012 Ford Escape and 2010-2011 Mercury Mariner, powered by 3.0-liter engines, for potential fuel leaks, due to possible faulty fuel delivery modules. The Michigan-based giant hasn’t received any reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition and states that dealers will replace the faulty parts free of charge.

For the third and final recall, Ford has turned to the 2017 Super Duty 6.7-liter diesel Chassis Cab vehicles, made in Kentucky from March 21 to August 28, this year, in 182 numbers, to replace the adhesive-mounted protective shield installed on the fuel conditioning module, with a bolt-on metallic protective one, as this could be dislodged. In extreme cases, water spray or road debris could force the drain valve to force open, allowing air to enter the fuel system or causing a substantial fuel leak. The Blue Oval, which is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue, will have its dealers make the necessary replacements at no cost to the owners.
