Additional information:

Among the 74 recalls the NHTSA has announced this June comes news of the following:

Logo - FordFord Motor Company (“Ford”) has recalled an estimated 3,868 model year certain 2009-2016 Ford Econoline vehicles equipped with a 5R110W transmission, 5.4L engine, and a School Bus or Ambulance Preparation Package. A weld within the coast clutch of the recalled vehicles may fail, causing an unexpected loss of drive power.

According to the NHTSA, a sudden loss of drive power increases the risk of a crash. Transferring occupants of a disabled school bus or ambulance to another vehicle increases their risk of injury.

Ford will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the single-engaging coast one-way clutch with a new dual-engaging one-way clutch, free of charge. Interim notices informing owners of the safety risk will be mailed July 22, 2019. Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available which is expected to be in September 2019. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s designation for this recall is 19S20.
