Ford Recalls Various Models to Replace Torque Converters


Quote:
Ford has recalled 5,914 vehicles in North America for an issue related to the automatic transmission.

According to Ford, the recall is due to the vehicles possibly having torque converters with inadequately welded studs. The affected vehicles are equipped with a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with 6F35 transmissions and include the 2017 Ford Edge, 2017 Ford Fusion, and 2017 Lincoln MKZ. If the welded studs detach in the affected vehicles, the torque converter will lose coupling to the engine flexplate. As a result, this could cause a loss of motive power without warning while driving, increasing the risk of a crash. Ford does note that the power steering, power brakes, electrical function, and vehicle restraint systems will continue to operate. The transmission park function will also not be affected.

SEE ALSO: 2019 Ford FTo address the issue, dealers will replace the torque converter at no cost to the customer. The American automaker is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue. The recall includes 5,183 vehicles in the U.S., 32 in federalized territories, 687 in Canada, and 12 in Mexico.
