Affects Taurus, Flex, Transit, Edge, plus Lincoln MKS and MKT.

Ford today announced three recalls that affect a total of 97,500 vehicles in the U.S. and a total of 111,500 vehicles worldwide. Two of the recalls involve fuel pump defects, while the third involves power window software.

The first recall affects 86,000 vehicles with Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, of which 77,502 are in the U.S. In affected vehicles, the fuel pump module could fail, which could either prevent the engine starting at all, or cause it to stall while driving. Ford says it doesn’t have any reports of injuries or accidents from this problem. The recall affects the 2013-2015 Ford Taurus, Flex, and Police Interceptor sedan with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost, as well as the 2013-2015 Lincoln MKS and MKT with the same engine.

Ford is also recalling the 2015-2016 Transit van equipped with the 3.2-liter turbodiesel engine; the recall affects a total of 2,500 vehicles worldwide, of which 2,013 are in the U.S. The fuel injection pump could fail and, as with the above recall, prevent the Transit from starting or cause it to stall. Ford also doesn’t have any reports of injuries from this recall.

Finally, the 2017 Ford Edge will be recalled because the software for the power windows allows the windows to close with more force than legally allowed, which could cause injuries to anyone with body parts in the window opening. This problem affects a total of 23,000 Edge crossovers, of which 17,985 are in the U.S.
