Ford extends a 2017 recall to replace another 27 model year 2018 Ford Edge, Fusion and 2017 Lincoln MKZ vehicles to replace the torque converters.
Ford released the first recall in July 2017 for more than 6,000 vehicles equipped with 2-liter engines and 6F35 transmissions. Wrong weld studs could come off and cause the torque converters to lose connection with the engine flexplates
The power steering, power brakes, and electrical functions will continue to function, but the vehicles will lose propulsion.
The addition of the 27 vehicles bring a total of 5,352 recalled vehicles in the US, 699 in Canada and 12 in Mexico.
Ford did not mention when the recall will begin, but dealers plan to replace the torque converters in the 27 vehicles. It is not a good day for Ford due to faulty welding work because the automaker today due to defective welds to the trucks and SUVs Recalled Fuel Pumps
