1. What happens when the fuel injection pump stops injecting fuel? Not much transiting, that's for sure.

    Just ask owners of the 2015-2016 Ford Transit with the 3.2L diesel engine. The automaker says the fuel injection pump may malfunction and cause the engine to fail to start or the engine may stall without warning, leaving the driver without the ability to restart the van.

    Ford didn't say when the recall will begin because that would be helpful. They did say dealerships will need to inspect the fuel system for metallic contamination.

  2. Busted modules are telling the fuel pumps in 88,000 Ford vehicles to take the day off.

    It should come as no surprise that those modules need to be replaced before those vehicles stall out.

    "Recalled are the 2013-2015 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engines. Also included are 2013-2015 Ford Police Interceptors with all engine types."

  3. Ford is having a problem keeping its vehicle's doors closed, prompting another massive recall.

    If they keep it up, they might have trouble keeping their doors open too. Ford says about 830,000 vehicles in North America need fixes to stop the doors from popping open while driving. This isn't the automaker's first time dealing with this problem. In 2015 they recalled nearly 550,000 vehicles for a similar issue.

    Unlike the previous recall, however, this one will only take place in what Ford is calling areas of "higher ambient temperature."…

    d's pawl spring issues have had their doors blown wide open. Yes, I went there. Ford says a recall of 830,000 vehicles in North America is needed to fix doors that may open while driving, but only if those vehicles are in certain areas.

    This comes after the feds opened an investigation into 400,000 Focus cars experiencing similar problems to a door latch recall from last year.…

  5. MyFord Touch intended to bring sophisticated technological control to your vehicle’s center console.

    Emphasis on intended because the system is well-known for failures. While a glitchy navigation system is an inconvenience, a proposed class-action lawsuit says the system can be dangerous in how it limits access to basic vehicle functions.

    Ford is on the receiving end of a proposed class-action lawsuit filed in a California court. The lawsuit claims the system is a safety hazard because it often fails and can cause serious problems with the defroster and rear-view camera.

    Common complaints about MyFord Touch include a terrible navigation experience, rear-view camera failure, issues controlling the temperature, no way to turn on the defroster, and more.

  6. Following 154 complaints and an ongoing lawsuit in Florida, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has decided to open an investigation into exhaust fumes entering 2011-2015 Ford Explorer SUVs.

    Typical complaints say exhaust fumes enter the cabins while the Explorers are operating at full throttle, such as when going uphill or merging onto freeways. Owners of the 2011-2015 Ford Explorers also say the fumes can be triggered by turning on the air conditioning in recirculation mode.

    The smells have led to headaches, nausea, and concerns of carbon monoxide poisoning.

    NHTSA says nearly 639,000 model year 2011-2015 Ford Explorer SUVs are included in the investigation.

  10. It seems like everything in a car is controlled by an electronic control unit (ECU) these days.

    The average luxury car contains 100 million lines of code --- 14x more than a Boeing 787 --- and with that much software, there’s bound to be bugs. The results of all that computer code can be seen in a study conducted by J.D. Power concerning software-related complaints and recalls. According to the study, in the past five years alone, vehicle owners have filed more than 2,000 software-related complaints with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    I wonder how many of those complaints are about MyFord Touch?
