17 April 1998

Ford Announces Vehicle Campaign

    DETROIT, April 17 -- Ford Motor Company is
notifying owners of certain 1998 F-700 and F-800 medium duty trucks of a
voluntary safety recall.
    Some of the affected vehicles have automatic locking front-wheel-bearing
adjustment nuts that may have been susceptible to damage during vehicle
assembly or during service.  If damaged, the nut may rotate and lose torque.
In extreme cases, this could result in a front wheel separating from the
vehicle.
    Approximately 1,700 vehicles are affected, of which 30 are in Canada.
    Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by mail and requested to take
their vehicle to their dealer for installation of different wheel-bearing
adjustment nuts.  The work will be completed free of charge.
    In addition, about 75,000 owners of certain 1997 and 1998 model-year F-150
pickups with 4.2-liter engines in cold weather states were previously mailed
notification of a voluntary safety recall involving the PCV system.  Dealers
will install a revised PCV system free of charge on affected vehicles.
