Ford Motor Co. is recalling 1,673 2015 model-year Ford F-650 SD and F-750 SD trucks because they are at risk for suddenly stalling, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.
The recall covers F-650 SD trucks manufactured from May 12 to July 22 of this year, as well as Ford F-750 SD trucks manufactured from May 12 to Aug. 4 of this year. The Cummins ISB or ISL engines in these Super Duty work trucks may have been equipped with Fleetguard UFF-XT fuel filters (part number FF63009). Their filter shell is at risk of separating from the fuel filter nut plate, causing the engine to stall without warning, NHTSA said.
Cummins will notify owners of the recalled Ford vehicles. Cummins service centers will replace the defective fuel filter, free of charge.
However, Cummins has not yet provided a notification schedule, NHTSA said. Owners can reach Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 14V01.
Truck owners can also contact Cummins customer service at 1-800-223-4583.
