Recalled:1993 Ford Light Duty Trucks

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) today released a list of auto safety recalls announced in November and December 2000 and urged consumers to have the problems fixed promptly.

Ford Motor Company

Models: Ford F150 Year: 1993 Ford F250 Year: 1993 Ford F350 Year: 1993

Number Involved: 275,000

Dates of Manufacture: December 1992 - August 1993

Defect: On certain light duty trucks and cab chassis equipped with gasoline engines and dual fuel tanks, the carbon steel fuel pressure regulator in the fuel system can wear out during the life of the vehicle. If the fuel pressure regulator malfunctions, it can cause high fuel system pressure, which damages the fuel pump check valve. This allows fuel to be transferred from one tank to the other, possibly overfilling the non-operating tank, resulting in fuel overflow past the filler cap. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a vehicle fire.

Remedy: Dealers will have a stainless steel fuel pressure regulator installed. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during May 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
