NHTSA Recall 12V431000

NHTSA Campaign ID number : 	12V431000
	
Vehicle Make / Model: 	    	Model Year(s):
     FORD / ESCAPE 	    	2013
Manufacturer: FORD MOTOR COMPANY 	Mfr's Report Date: SEP 04, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V431000 	NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 6,146
Summary:
Ford is recalling certain model year 2013 Escape vehicles manufactured from October 5, 2011, through August 31, 2012, equipped with 1.6L engines. The cylinder head cup plug (freeze plug) may become dislodged resulting in significant loss of engine coolant.
Consequence:
As leaking engine coolant evaporates on the hot engine, the glycol may ignite causing an engine compartment fire.
Remedy:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will seal the existing plug and add a secondary plug cover, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, September 10, 2012. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.
Notes:
Ford's recall campaign number is 12S39. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
