The recall is made for Ford Flex, Taurus and Police Interceptor Sedans. Other than that Lincoln MKS and MKT vehicles will be included in these recalls which were released from 2013 to 2015.
According to the complaints registered to Ford and NHSTA the fuel pump module of these cars might fail. Due to this failure of fuel pump, the engine might not get its fuel which can lead on to stopping of the vehicle. Along with that the fuel pump can stop working when the car is being driven too.
Thus the engine can get its fuel supply blocked due to the failure as well. This fuel failure can lead to engine failure and the drivers might not be able to start it as well. This kind of problem can be really dangerous as it can lead to various accidents on road.
Ford will personally notify the customers of this recall in an official mail. The customers of the affected vehicles will be encouraged to bring their cars to the dealer.
The dealers will later on change the fuel pump modules in these cars. All the new parts will be provided free of cost and they won’t be charged for the process too.
The recall will be made for 88,151 vehicles. Out of these will be 77,502 vehicles that are from U.S. A similar kind of recall by Ford was made for Transit a few months back as well. These were recalled due to the failure of diesel injection pumps in the vehicles.
Second Ford safety recall is for 2,472 2015-16 Ford Transit 3.2-liter diesel-equipped vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant, July 15, 2015 to April 14, 2016.
