Ford Bronco Sport and Escape crossovers, released in the period from 2020 to the present, fell under the recall campaign.
Dealers of the brand will inspect the fuel system of “problematic” cars in search of cracks in the fuel injector. 518,993 Ford Bronco Sport and Escape crossovers with a 1.5-liter engine sold on the American car market were subjected to such a test.
When the engine is running, a cracked fuel nozzle can lead to the accumulation of fuel or its vapors near hot surfaces. This is a great risk of fire in the engine compartment.
Plus, when the pressure in the fuel ramp decreases, the motor power automatically decreases. This way all risks are minimized, and the driver can safely get to the service center.
“By updating the software, specialists will be able to understand whether the fuel injector is damaged. If there is a problem, a notification will be displayed on the device. Also, a strong smell of fuel in the upper part of the engine will tell about the nozzle defect.”
