It feels like there is a new recall every week in Colorado. Some recalls are for simple headlight repairs or a sensor that might malfunction.

I recently took my car for an oil change at my dealership and I was surprised to find out that I had three major recalls.

It was an immediate recall and my dealership hung onto my car for three days.

I was frustrated because I didn't know about it ahead of time. That is a large reason why we want you to know about the latest recall from Ford. This recall could potentially save your life.

Fire Hazards in Colorado


There is a fire hazard with multiple Ford models that are on the road in Colorado. Here is an explanation from The Car Connection.

A cracked fuel injector can result in fuel leaking at a high rate onto the cylinder head, which can then run onto hot surfaces near the exhaust manifold or turbocharger. Fuel vapor on a hot surface can ignite a fire.

You might be wondering why it needs to be recalled. Ford is not saying that all of the models have a cracked fuel injector. However, a major update needs to be made for the engine control software.

Additionally, a drain tube will be installed on your vehicle so there is a higher chance you will avoid major and critical issues.
