Ford Recalls More than 700,000 Vehicles for Software Issues

The Ford Motor Co. is recalling 737,000 vehicles in the U.S. over a part that could develop an oil leak onto a component and cause a software error that could hinder braking. This news comes on the heels of Ford’s record-breaking orders being placed for their EV vehicles, which could even force more customers to turn the EV route.

The automaker on Friday said it is recalling 345,451 of its 2020-2022 Ford Escape and 2021-2022 Ford Bronco Sport vehicles with 1.5L engines because the engine oil separator housing could crack and develop an oil leak that would cause a fire.

Ford said it had reports of at least eight fires that may be related to the issue but no related injuries or crashes. This caused Ford to act quickly to put out the recall. Dealers will inspect the oil separator for damage or oil leaks, and replace the oil separator and seals, as necessary.
