Filed under:  Recalls
 
Comment(s): 0
 
 

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain model year 2013 Escape vehicles manufactured October 5, 2011, through June 2, 2013 and equipped with 1.6L engines. The affected vehicles may experience localized overheating of the engine cylinder head which may cause cracks that could allow oil to leak.

Ford's recall number: 13S12
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V583000
Component: Engine
Potential Number of Units Affected: 139,917

Consequence:
Leaking engine oil may come into contact with a hot engine surface potentially resulting in an engine compartment fire.

Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will modify the engine shielding, cooling and control systems, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by January 23, 2014. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

For some of the vehicles included in this campaign, this recall is in addition to NHTSA recall 12V-551. All covered vehicles, regardless of being inspected and repaired under the earlier recall, require an inspection and a remedy for this campaign.

Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to Safercar.
