Ford announced several recalls on Wednesday that affect cars sold in the United States. More than 88,000 cars across two different recalls are at risk of having faulty engines that are prone to stalling, while another recall is related to power window issues.

88,151 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS and Lincoln MKT vehicles that are equipped with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engines are included in one recall; 77,502 of those cars are currently in the United States. Ford said the fuel pump in the aforementioned vehicles is prone to failure, which could force the engine to stall or fail to start entirely. Ford said this might happen while drivers are on the road and admits it increases the risk of a crash. These cars are affected:

  • 2013-15 Ford Taurus with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Chicago Assembly Plant, Aug. 25, 2011 to May 31, 2015
  • 2013-15 Ford Flex with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Oakville Assembly, Sept. 12, 2011 to May 29, 2015
  • 2013-15 Lincoln MKS with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Chicago Assembly Plant, Aug. 31, 2011 to May 31, 2015
  • 2013-15 Lincoln MKT with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Oakville Assembly, Sept. 12, 2011 to May 29, 2015
  • 2013-15 Ford Police Interceptor sedan, all engines, built at Chicago Assembly, Sept. 8, 2011 to May 31, 2015

Ford also recalled 2,500 2015-16 Ford Transit cars, again noting that the fuel injection pump is prone to failure, which could cause the engine to stall or fail.

Finally, Ford is recalling 23,000 2017 Ford Escapes "to update power window software" that may close windows too forcefully "increasing the risk of injury."
