Ford recalls over 88K vehicles due to stalling problem

- Ford is recalling more than 88,000 cars and SUVs in North America because the engines can stall without warning due to a fuel pump problem.

The recall covers certain Ford Taurus and Police Interceptor sedans, Ford Flex wagons, Lincoln MKS sedans and Lincoln MKT SUVs from the 2013 through 2015 model years. All have 3.5-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engines.

Ford says the fuel pump control modules can fail, and the engines may not start, or they could stall, leaving drivers without the ability to restart them. The company says it's not aware of any crashes or injuries from the problem.

Dealers will replace the control module at no cost to owners.

Ford says it's working with parts makers to ship new modules quickly. The company will notify customers to bring their vehicles in for repairs starting the week of Oct. 17.

Concerned owners can go to Ford.com and click on "safety recalls" near the bottom of the page to see if their vehicles are part of the recall. They'll have to key in the vehicle identification number. Those whose vehicles are in the recalled and are concerned about stalling should contact their local dealer, the company says.
