Ford Motor Co. is recalling 2,013 2015-2016 model-year Ford Transit vehicles equipped with 3.2-liter diesel engines so dealers can replace the fuel injection pumps, the automaker said.
In these vehicles, the fuel injection pump could malfunction and cause the engine to not start or to stall without warning while driving. Ford, however, stated it isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.
The recall covers 2015-16 Ford Transit vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant from July 15, 2015 to April 14, 2016. In addition to the 2,013 vehicles recalled in the U.S., Ford is calling back 457 vehicles in Canada for the same problem.
Dealers will inspect the fuel system for metallic contamination. If none is present, dealers will replace the fuel injection pump and associated parts.
If metallic contamination is found, dealers will replace the fuel injection pump, fuel injectors, and fuel filter. They will also clean and flush the fuel system at no cost to the customer.
