In North America, Ford is recalling nearly 1.5 million Focus compact cars. The fuel system problem causes the engines to stall without warning.

Ford said that “a valve in the fuel system can stick in the open position, causing too much vacuum, and an engine control computer may not detect the problem. Excessive vacuum can cause the gas tank to deform, as well as other problems.”

After the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the United States of America presented owner complaints to Ford, the recall came. The U.S. has more than 1.3 million recalled vehicles. According to the statement given by Ford, the owners should keep the gas tank half full till it gets the repair.

 

 

“Dealers will reprogram the computer with new software that will detect a stuck valve, which the company says will take care of the problem in most cases.” From 10 December onwards, Ford is expected to begin the recall.
