Ford is recalling 3,095 F-series ambulances over defective sensor

Article by Anita Panait, on November 6, 2013

Ford is recalling 3,095 F-series ambulances due a possible defect that might cause them to stall and not restart for at least an hour. The recall covers 2011-2012 ambulances powered by 6.7-liter diesel engines, including Super Duty F-350 and F-450 trucks, built at the Kentucky Truck Plant from Feb. 22, 2010, to Oct. 19, 2012.

Ford said the recall does not include non-ambulance F-series vehicles. On Oct. 28, 2013, Ford notified the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that a defect in the exhaust gas temperature sensor might cause some ambulances to stop and not be restarted for at least one hour. 

According to Ford, it received no reports of the problem affecting patient care, but it is taking action due to the "unique nature of ambulances." A Ford spokeswoman remarked that the carmaker is not aware of any accidents or injuries attributed to the defect, including to the patients riding in the ambulances. Ford sold 2,934 of the ambulances in the United States, 51 in Canada, two in Mexico, and 108 elsewhere. The sensor will be replaced by Ford’s dealers. [source: Ford]
