Mustang, Sable, Taurus Recalled

Ford Motor Company

Models: Ford Mustang Year: 1995

Mercury Sable Year: 1995

Ford Taurus Year: 1995

Number Involved: 695,260

Dates of Manufacture: April 1994 - August 1995

Defect: On certain Taurus/Sable vehicles equipped with 3.0-liter and 3.8- liter engines and Mustang vehicles with 3.8-liter and 5.0-liter engines, it is possible for the engine cooling fan bearing to seize. Should this occur, excessive heat could be generated, which could melt the fan motor electrical connector. Components inside the cooling fan motor could ignite, potentially resulting in an underhood fire.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the engine cooling fan assembly and install a circuit breaker.

If the cooling fan is inoperative, the fan and motor assembly will be replaced.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during January 2002.

Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.
