    Ford recalling 408,000 vehicles for fire risk

    Ford recalls Shelby GT350, Escape, Super Duty to address fire risk

    Ford has announced three separate safety recalls to address fire concerns with the Shelby GT350, Super Duty chassis cab, Escape and Mercury Mariner.

    The 2015-2016 GT350 and GT350R were built with an engine oil cooler tube that may have insufficient crimps. Hose separate can allow oil to quickly drain from the engine, posing a fire risk and potentially resulting in engine failure.

    The 2010-2012 Escape and 2010-2011 Mariner equipped with 3.0-liter flex-fuel engines will receive a new flange assembly for the fuel delivery module.

    "In affected vehicles, the fuel delivery module fuel supply port could develop a crack, causing a possible fuel leak," Ford warns. "A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of fire."

    The smallest recall involves the 2017 Super Duty chassis cab powered by a 6.7-liter diesel engine. The company will replace the fuel-conditioning module's adhesive-mounted protective shield with a bolt-on metallic protector. Inadequate adhesion can cause the original shield to be dislodged by road debris or water spray, allowing fuel to leak or air to enter the line.

    The recalls affect a total of around 408,000 vehicles. Ford claims to be unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the defects.
