2012 Ford Edge EcoBoost Fuel System Recalled

Ford Recalls 5499 2012 Edge Crossovers with 2.0 EcoBoost Engine

Sep 16, 2012
A defective fuel line pulse damper housing on the 2012 Ford Edge EcoBoost is being recalled. The metal housing may crack as the result of a manufacturing defect, and cause an underhood fuel leakage and engine compartment fire. The new 2013 Ford Escape equipped with the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine was the subject of two recalls earlier this year for engine fires, one of which was the result of a fuel system leak. No recalls have yet been issued for the 2013 Escape equipped with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost.
