Ford has announced two new recalls, one of which affects the brand new 2017 Super Duty lineup.
A total of 9,400 vehicles are affected in North America, with 8,000 of those being the new 2017 Super Duty. The issue with the trucks is a fuel tank strap reinforcement that may not have been used. This can lead to the fuel tank moving out of position and potentially contacting the ground. The affected trucks were built between Aug.10 and Sept.17 of this year at the Kentucky Truck Plant.
The second recall affects about 1,300 Ford Taurus, Flex, Explorer, Police Interceptor Utility and Lincoln MKT vehicles. The problem is an improperly brazed turbocharger oil supply tube that can leak engine oil, potentially leading to a fire.
To fix the trucks, Ford dealers will install new fuel tank strap reinforcements while the rest of the vehicles will get a new turbocharger oil supply tube.
