Ford Motor Co. said it’s recalling 77,502 2013-15 model-year Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT vehicles with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engines, as well as Ford Police Interceptor sedans, in the U.S.

The safety recall will allow Ford dealers to inspect and, if needed, replace fuel pump control modules. The modules are at risk for malfunctioning that can lead to stalling or the engine failing to start. In some cases, the engine could stall without warning while driving and without the ability to restart, increasing the risk of a crash, Ford said.

Ford, however, noted it’s unaware of any accidents or injuries associated with this issue.

Affected vehicles include:

  • 2013-15 Ford Taurus cars with a 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Chicago Assembly Plant from Aug. 25, 2011 to May 31, 2015
  • 2013-15 Ford Flex cars with a 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Oakville Assembly from Sept. 12, 2011 to May 29, 2015
  • 2013-15 Lincoln MKS cars with a 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Chicago Assembly Plant from Aug. 31, 2011 to May 31, 2015
  • 2013-15 Lincoln MKT cars with a 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Oakville Assembly from Sept. 12, 2011 to May 29, 2015
  • 2013-15 Ford Police Interceptor sedans, all engines, built at Chicago Assembly from Sept. 8, 2011 to May 31, 2015.

Additionally, Ford is recalling 7,353 vehicles in Canada and 1,083 in Mexico to address the same problem.

Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pump control module, as needed, at no cost to the customer.
