NEWS:   Fuel leak risk, electrical issues prompt Ford recall

YAHOO NEWS -- March 2,  2011 – Ford Motor Co (F.N) recalled more than 31,000 vehicles due to the risk of a possible fuel leak and electrical issues, according to a posting on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

Ford recalled 23,688 Ford Ranger trucks saying the protective layer of an engine fuel line near the throttle body shield may not be properly installed, according to Wednesday's notice.

In a separate notice, Ford said it would recall more than 8,022 vehicles spanning seven models for the model year 2011 because their electrical system may short and prompt a vehicle fire.

FEBRUARY 2011 -- Ford is recalling certain model year 2010 Ford Ranger trucks manufactured from October 15, 2009, through May19, 2010. The engine fuel line in the area of the throttle body shield may not have a protective convolute (cover) properly installed. If the protective convolute on the fuel line is not assembled in the proper position, the edge of the shield may contact the fuel line. Over time this contact may chafe the fuel line, resulting in a fuel odor and a potential fuel leak. A sufficient fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will trim the throttle body shield away from the fuel line and inspect the fuel line for wear, and replace the line if necessary free of charge. The safety recall began on March 4, 2011.   11V-126


MAY  2010 -- Ford is recalling certain model year 2010 Ranger vehicles manufactured from June 8, 2009 through February 2, 2010 equipped with manual transmission. It is possible for the parking brake cable to become disconnected from the right rear actuator during cold weather. This may occur when the parking brake is released if wet parking brake shoes have frozen in the applied position. If the right rear parking brake cable becomes disconnected, the pedal will have extended travel and may not fully apply the parking brake. A manual transmission vehicle parked in neutral without a fully applied parking brake may have unintended movement which may cause a crash. Dealers will install a revised right rear parking brake actuator to prevent cable disconnection free of charge. The safety recall began on May 21, 2010.  . Ford's recall campaign number is 10S12. 10V-202


NEWS:   Ford Recalls 2010 Rangers With Manual Transmission

YAHOO NEWS -- May 20. 2010 – According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the parking brake cable can become disconnected from the right rear actuator during cold weather. This might occur when the parking brake is released if wet parking brake shoes have frozen in the applied position. If the right rear parking brake cable becomes disconnected, the pedal will have extended travel and may not fully apply the parking brake. 

A manual transmission vehicle parked in neutral without a fully applied parking brake may start moving, posing a crash risk. 

The vehicles involved in the recall were all manufactured from June 8, 2009 through Feb. 2, 2010. 

To remedy the problem, dealers will install a revised right rear parking brake actuator to prevent cable disconnection. This will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin this month. 


FEBRUARY 2009 --  Ford is recalling 11,134 MY 2009 4X2 ranger vehicles. Some front wheel spindles were improperly manufactured creating the risk that a spindle may fracture during the normal useful life of the truck. If a spindle fractures, the wheel may separate from the vehicle increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the front spindle if necessary free of charge. The recall began on February 27, 2009. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.   09V-040
