Recall Alert : 2017 Ford Truck DIESEL

RECALL Subject : Drain Valve Opening May Cause Fuel Leak

Report Receipt Date: OCT 26, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V778000
Component(s): FUEL SYSTEM, DIESEL
Potential Number of Units Affected: 170


Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company

SUMMARY:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2017 Ford F-250 SD, F-350 SD, F-450 SD, and F-550 SD trucks manufactured March 21, 2016, to August 28, 2016. The protective shield on the fuel conditioning module may have inadequate adhesion, allowing the shield to become dislodged.
CONSEQUENCE:
If the shield becomes dislodged, the drain valve may open resulting in a fuel leak. A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, increases the risk of a fire. Under certain conditions, significant liquid fuel on the road surface may cause a slip hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the protective shield, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 7, 2016. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 16S39.
