2018 Ford F-150: Recall Alert


Vehicles Affected: Model-year 2018 Ford F-150 pickup trucks are among approximately 5,600 Ford and Lincoln vehicles being recalled for a fuel pump issue. Affected vehicles are model-year 2018 F-150 pickup trucks built at the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan between March 14 and April 24, 2018, as well as at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri between March 20 and April 17, 2018; Ford Expedition SUVs built at the Kentucky Truck Plant between March 14 and April 12, 2018; and model-year 2018 Lincoln Navigator SUVs built at the Kentucky Truck Plant between Feb. 20 and May 6, 2018; all vehicles are equipped with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine

The Problem: The high-pressure fuel pump assembly may have inadequate welds between the pump housing and its mounting flange, causing the welds to the vehicles to be susceptible to high-cycle fatigue fractures that could cause the fuel pump to move relative to its mounting flange, resulting in eventual loss of the sealing integrity of the cam cover or the fuel lines and an oil or fuel leak, increasing the risk of fire.

Ford said it is not aware of any fires, accidents or injuries related to the issue.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the high-pressure fuel pump, high-pressure fuel discharge tube, and high-pressure pump and discharge tube mounting bolts for free.

What Owners Should Do: Lincoln automaker Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
