Ford recalls nearly 260,000 trucks, SUVs, vans


DETROIT -- Ford Motor Co. is recalling nearly 260,000 vehicles, most of them large pickup trucks, to fix safety defects that include sudden stalling of diesel engines, U.S. federal safety regulators said on Monday.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the stalling problem affected F-Series superduty pickups from the 2004-2005 model years as well as the 2004-2005 Ford Excursion full-size sport utility vehicle and E350 and E450 vans.

All 180,104 of those vehicles are equipped with 6.0 liter diesel engines and the recall stems from a potentially faulty fuel injection control module, NHTSA said.

Separately, it said Ford was recalling 78,675 superduty pickups and chassis cab vehicles from the 2005 model year because their fuel line may separate from the main fuel bundle.

Fuel line separation can cause engine stalling or leakage, possibly resulting in a fire, NHTSA said.

It identified the trucks affected by the recall as F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 superduty pickups and said they were equipped with 5.4 or 6.8 liter gasoline engines.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
