Ford Recalls 2013 Escapes – Car Pro News

Ford is recalling its redesigned-for-2013 Escape. It’s due to an improperly installed engine component, according to The Detroit News.
The recall affects 7,600 Escape crossovers with the 1.6-liter engine. In the affected vehicles, which were built from Oct. 5, 2011, to Aug. 31, 2012 (check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb), a cup plug could become dislodged from the cylinder head. This could cause the engine coolant to drain, increasing the risk of fire.
Dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts free of charge. The News is reporting that the repair will take three-and-a-half hours at a dealership. An owner notification schedule hasn’t been made available, but owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 for more info.
The Escape was recalled earlier this summer because of a fuel line leak and a problem with the floormats.
