Around 100,000 hybrid vehicles have been recalled.

Some Corsair and Escape SUVs and a number of Maverick compact pickups were affected. There are hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric engines.

Ford said in a report that a problem with the crankshaft could cause engine failure. The failure of the engine could cause oil and fuel Vapor to leak onto hot parts of the engine and cause a fire.

According to Ford, there have been 23 reports of engine failure causing a fire. There have been no reports of deaths or injuries related to the issue.

According to Ford, engine failure accounts for only 0.17 repairs per 1,000 vehicles.

If your Ford vehicle is subject to a recall, you will be notified by Ford on August 8.

The owners will be told to take their car to the dealer. While the engine issue will not be addressed, dealers will make some adjustments to create increased air flow that will reduce under-the-hood temperatures to levels that will prevent fuel vapor and engine oil from ignite.

New vehicles coming off the production line don't have the problem because Ford has already solved it at the manufacturing stage.

In May 2022, the Michigan-based company expanded a recall. There is a risk of an under-the-hood fire related to the original recall. An additional 66,000 vehicles were built between July 27, 2020 and August 31, 2021.

The risk of a high-current short on a printed circuit board is so serious that the automaker is telling owners to park their vehicles outside. They were allowed to continue driving. The replacement parts will be installed by dealers for free.

There have been 21 reports of under-the-hood fires by Ford. Ford said one injury has been reported in relation to this issue.

More than half a million cars were recalled in April.
