Preguntas Frecuentes

What is the issue tied to this recall?

In the event of a fuel injector crack, fuel and/or fuel vapor may migrate to and/or accumulate near ignition sources, resulting in a potential underhood fire.

What is the cause of the issue?

A cracked fuel injector in the engine allows for fuel to leak into the cylinder head, which can travel out via a drain hole and down to a hot surface and possibly ignite.

¿Cuál es la reparación que se espera?

To assess, and, where necessary, correct the problem, Ford will:

  • Update the engine control software to detect whether there is a pressure drop in the fuel rail, and, if so, provide a dashboard message to customers to seek service. Additionally, fuel pressure will be reduced to minimize the risk, which will reduce engine power while also allowing customers to drive to safe locations, stop the vehicle, and arrange for service.
  • Install a tube that drains fuel from the cylinder head and away from hot surfaces and check for excessive fuel odor near the top of the engine, another indicator of a possible issue.

Is there a warning or alert for customers?

While the engine is operating, a fuel leak from a cracked fuel injector is expected to result in fuel odor both outside and inside the vehicle. If a fire were to initiate, as the fire progresses, the customer may notice smoke or flames from the engine compartment or underbody.

Ford has not issued instructions to park vehicles outside or away from structures.
