According to an online news report posted on reuters.com, Ford Motor Company has initiated a recall of 737,000 motor vehicles due to a fire hazard and software issue that can inhibit braking. The recall only affects vehicles sold in the United States. The Ford Motor Company is recalling about 345,000 2020-2022 Ford Escape cars and 2021-2022 Ford Bronco Sport vehicles that have 1.5L engines due to the engine oil separator housing cracking and creating an oil leak that can cause an engine fire.
Ford stated that there had been at least eight engine fires that might be related to the engine oil separator housing problem, but no related accidents or injuries were reported. Ford dealers will inspect the engine oil separator housing for oil leaks or damage and will replace the oil separator and seals if necessary.
Ford also reported that it is recalling more than 391,000 2021-2022 F-150, 2022 Ford Maverick, Lincoln Navigator, Expedition, F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 trucks due to a defect in the trailer electric or electric-over hydraulic brake system. The issue causes the trailer to not brake. Ford dealers will perform an update of the integrated trailer brake control module software. Ford announced that they had received 67 improper function reports that are related to the issue.
