Ford has recalled certain 2018 F-150 trucks for a potential fuel or oil leak and 2018 F-650 and F-750 trucks for a possible brake fluid leak.

Certain 2018 Ford F-150, Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator vehicles equipped with 3.5-liter GTDI V6 engines have high pressure fuel pump assemblies with welds that can fracture, which may cause an oil or fuel leak.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the high pressure fuel pump and associated components, free of charge. Roughly 5,645 vehicles are affected. The recall is expected to begin July 16, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 18S17.

Ford is also recalling certain 2018 Ford F-650 and F-750 trucks. The brake circuit hose assemblies located between the master cylinder and the hydraulic control unit may have been manufactured without anti-corrosion plating on the coupling fittings, or ‘ferrules’ of the hoses. This can lead to premature corrosion and result in a brake fluid leak.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake hose assemblies, free of charge. It’s estimated that 1,474 vehicles could be affected. The recall is expected to begin July 9, 2018. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford’s number for this recall is 18S19.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
