Ford recalls more trucks for fire hazard
Ford has recalled another 57,199 trucks and SUVs warning that the vehicles might catch
fire because of a design flaw. The latest Ford fire recall covers 2006 and 2007 trucks and
SUV equipped with the 5.4 liter engine. They are the 2006-2007 E-150, E-250, E-350
trucks and the 2007 Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator. The new recall issued on
February 4 is not scheduled to begin until March when Ford dealers will replace the fuel
rail assembly The fire hazard in the Ford vehicles is caused by the fuel rail cross-over
hose, according to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
NHTSA reports that the hose may crack, which could cause a fuel odour or a fuel leak.
.Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire,. NHTSA
warns.

The recall is the latest in a lengthy series of Ford recalls to repair engineering errors that
could cause a car or truck to catch fire. Ford has recalled almost 11 million vehicles
beginning with the 1992 model year to repair fire hazard flaws in the cruise control
system and anti-lock braking system.
ConsumerAffairs.com reported last month that more than 1.8 million cars and trucks
remain at risk of erupting into flames five months after the automaker recalled an
additional 3.6 million vehicles because of a fire hazard in the cruise control system.
Earlier in February, Ford concluded that a previous recall to prevent faulty cruise
control system from erupting in flames was ineffective in abou 225,000 of the almost 11
million Ford vehicles recalled because of a fire hazard since the automaker first
acknowledged the fire hazard in 1999.
As a result, Ford is issuing a second recall for the almost 225,000 vehicles that were
previously recalled for a faulty cruise control system that might fail and cause the vehicle
to burn even when parked and turned off. (Source: Consumer Affairs.com)
