Ford Transit With 3.2L Diesel Being Recalled For Fuel-Injection Pumps

Sponsored Links

Ford Motor Company is recalling some 2015-2016 model-year Ford Transit vehicles over concerns that the fuel-injection pumps on vehicles equipped with the 3.2L diesel might fail, causing either a no-start or a random-stalling condition.

The defect: the Ford Transit diesel’s fuel-injection pump has exhibited a high incidence of failure. The defective part has also been linked with metal contamination in the fuel system.

The hazards: the fuel -injection pump could fail without warning, causing a no-start condition or random stalling while the vehicle is being driven, with no ability to restart. In the latter case, the risk of being involved in a crash increases. Ford is aware of no accidents or injuries relating to this issue.

Affected vehicles: 2015-16 Ford Transit with 3.2-liter diesel I5 manufactured July 15, 2015 through April 14, 2016 at the Kansas City Assembly Plant

Number of affected vehicles: approximately 2,470 total units of which:

  • 2,013 are in the United States and its territories
  • 457 are in Canada

The fix: authorized Ford dealers will replace the fuel-injection pumps in affected Ford Transit vehicles free-of-charge. In addition, dealers will inspect the fuel system for metallic contaminants; if contamination is found, the fuel injectors and fuel filter will also be replaced, and the fuel system cleaned and flushed, at no cost to the customer.

Owners should: Ford owners who wish to know if their Ford Transit is included in the fuel-injection pump safety recall should visit http://owner.ford.com and click on Safety Recalls at the bottom of the page. There, customers can enter their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to see any open safety, compliance, or emissions recalls, as well as customer satisfaction programs.
