Affected Component: Fuel system, other:storage:tank assembly.

Summary: On certain natural gas vehicles, if a flame from a vehicle interior fire becomes locally directed at the natural gas fuel tank located immediately behind the rear seat, the flame could damage the fiberglass wrap on the tank weakening the tank. .

Conequence: If the strength of the tank is significantly compromised, it could rupture, increasing the risk of a fire. .

Remedy: Dealers will install an insulator behind the current seat back. Owner notification began on january 7, 2004. Owners should contact ford at 1-800-392-3673. .

Units Affected:
43,626

Affected Component: Service brakes, hydraulic:foundation components:hoses, lines/piping, and fittings.

Summary: On certain passenger vehicles built with electronic traction control, the rear brake line may chafe due to contact between it and a floor pan stiffening rib, and a brake fluid leak may occur. .

Conequence: The brake pedal may develop a "spongy" feel and drops of brake fluid may be observed beneath the vehicle. Over time brake performance may be compromised and stopping distances could be extended which could lead to a crash. .

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the subject vehicles for contact between the brake tube and floor pan stiffening rib. If contact is evident, but no abrasion or leaks exist, the brake tube will be repositioned to preclude further contact and potential abrasion. If indication of abrasion or a leak is evident, dealers will repair the brake line. This campaign began on july 15, 2005. Owners may contact ford at 1-800-392-3673. .

Units Affected:

Affected Component: Service brakes, hydraulic:foundation components:hoses, lines/piping, and fittings.
