Ford has issued a recall of 8,000 of its 2017 Ford Super Duty vehicles due to issues related to the straps that hold the vehicle’s fuel tank.
A reinforcement could be missing and cause the strap to separate from the frame and dislodge the tank until it touches the ground. This makes a fuel leak, and therefore a fire, more likely. There have been no reports of injuries.
The other Ford recall involves 1,300 vehicles with problems related to the turbocharger.
Tubes supplying the part with oil may be improperly brazed. This can lead to an engine oil leak on the turbocharger and surrounding parts. This increases the chance of engine fire. There have been no reports of injuries.
