Ford will send for repair almost 60 thousand cars Ford Focus

The detected malfunction can lead to various consequences, up to the stop of the motor.

Ford recalls in North America about 58 thousand copies of Ford Focus. Most of these “problem” cars were purchased by American motorists – 57,400 Focus. Another 400 received a Canadian “registration”, and 480 went to Mexico. It is known that Ford Focus of 2012 and 2017 years of release, equipped with a two-liter GDI engine, came under the service share. They all came off the assembly line of the Michigan plant in Wayne. Also on this list are the Focus 2013-2014, which hides a 2.0-liter GTDI under the hood.

The reason that these cars will be sent for repair, according to the automaker press service, is the lack of software calibration, which detects a faulty canister purge valve.

If it gets stuck in the fuel vapor control system, an excessive vacuum can form, which is fraught with deformation of the fuel tank. And then – either a simple actuation of the indicator on the instrument panel, or stopping the motor. During repair work, the wizard will inspect and reprogram the engine control module with the appropriate software calibration and, if necessary, replace the canister purge valve. Until the “problematic” Ford Focus passes the test, they are recommended to keep at least half of the fuel tank in their cars.
