Ford Focus Recalled Once More Over Engine Issue

By  | 

The previous-gen Ford Focus model was recalled a few months ago and it looks like that is not the last time it will get recalled as some models were recalled once more in a new safety campaign.

According to Ford, the new recall will be for some of the models that did not get the software calibration that can detect a malfunctioning cannister purge valve. It was added that the part is stuck open, an excessive vacuum can develop in the fuel vapor management system which can then lead to the deformed fuel tank. Ford added that no accidents or injuries related to the issues have been reported so far.

Those affected by the recall will be the 2021 and 2017 Ford Focus that is powered by the 2.0 liter GDI engine and was made in their Michigan Assembly Plant from the 7th of October 2010 until the 23rd of July 2012 and those made from the 24th of August 2016 to 13th of April 2019.

Besides the Focus, some Focus ST will also be affected by the recall. While the owners wait for Ford to fix the issue, it is advised that they only fill half their tank.
