More than 88,000 Ford vehicles are being recalled due to a fuel pump control module failure. The recall affects certain Ford models including the Ford Flex, Taurus, and some Police Interceptor sedans. The Lincoln MKS and MKT models from 2013-2015 are also a part of this recall.
Drivers may not be able to start their engine, or alternatively the engine could stall without warning while the vehicle is in motion. Although no accidents or injuries have been reported, this potentially dangerous issue could cause a number of accidents on and off the road.
Ford is notifying all of their customers and asking to bring their vehicles in for repairs starting October 17th. All dealers are required to replace the defective fuel pump control modules without any cost to the driver.
Ford is also recalling their 2015-2016 Ford Transit diesel models which have a faulty fuel injection pump. The manufacturer is claiming that the fuel injection pump may also malfunction and prevent the engine from starting. This issue could also lead to the vehicle stalling without warning while driving.
As part of another recall, Ford dealers will also inspect the models fuel system for contamination. If no contamination is found, dealers are said to replace the fuel injection pump and its parts. However, if a dealership does find that there is a metallic contamination, dealers will flush the fuel system and replace the fuel injection pump, fuel injectors, and fuel filter.
