Remedy Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the fuel line. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 16, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
Remedy Dealers will inspect the rear hubs and, if necessary, replace them. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 2, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
Remedy Dealers will inspect the speed control cables for the defective cables and replace those found. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Aug. 21, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
Summary On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with speed control, the speed control cable may be defective and malfunction or allow water into the cable, eventually causing corrosion that could interfere with the function of the speed control. If either of these conditions occurs and the speed control is used, the speed control could prevent the throttle from returning to idle, resulting in a stuck throttle. A stuck throttle could result in a crash.
Summary On certain sport utility vehicles, the O-ring seals in the fuel line connector at the outlet end of the fuel filter were damaged when the line was connected to the filter during vehicle assembly. This damage could result in fuel odor, or possibly in fuel dripping from the connection. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.
Summary Some 4x2 sport utility vehicles not equipped with an antilock brake system (ABS) may have inadvertently been built with 4x4 rear hubs instead of 4x2 hubs. If the incorrect hubs are installed, the rear wheels can loosen, or in some cases, separate from the vehicle. This condition could cause loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
