NEWS: Feds probe 724K Ford models over power loss

FEBRUARY 2013 — Federal safety regulators have opened a new safety investigation into 724,000 Ford Escape, Fusion and Mercury models over hundreds of reports of sudden loss of engine power.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Monday it has opened a preliminary investigation into the 2009-11 Ford Escape and Fusion, and Mercury Mariner and Milan.

NHTSA said it has 123 reports indicating allegations of reduced power or vehicle stall in Escape vehicles under investigation.

Ford made a design change in 2009 to address complaints but did not recall the vehicles. NHTSA said there have been 27,500 warranty claims for the issue, along with reports of three crashes and one injury. Ford has received more than 1,400 complaints about the issue.

We are cooperating fully with NHTSA on this investigation, as we do on all investigations, said Ford spokeswomanr.

Vehicles manufactured between June 2009 and October 2009 may contain contaminated circuit boards with plating variations, NHTSA said. Plating variations could lead to a failure. Ford and its supplier, Delphi Corp. modified the manufacturing process and issued a technical service bulletin in October 2010, NHTSA said.

Vehicles produced after Oct. 15, 2009 have electronic throttle bodies manufactured with a new process that resolved this condition, the government said. The bulletin instructed dealers to replace the throttle body on a number of Ford and Lincoln vehicles.

Depending on the condition of throttle control system malfunction, a driver may experience varying levels of reduced engine performance.

Vehicles are not likely to unexpectedly stall as a result, but drivers may describe it as a stall even though the engine is still running, NHTSA said. Separately, NHTSA said it received 59 complaints alleging incidents of engine stalling while driving in model year 2010-11 Ford Fusions.

About 60 percent of the incidents occurred at speeds of 40 miles per hour or more.
