Ford Recalls Focuses for Vapor Management

By Staff Writer July 19, 2019

Ford Motor Co. is recalling 57,488 2012 and 2017 Focus vehicles equipped with 2.0L GDI gasoline engines and 2013-14 Focus ST vehicles equipped with 2.0L GTDI engines, previously recalled under 18V-735.

The affected vehicles did not have the powertrain control module (PCM) updated as intended. Therefore, the canister purge valve (CPV) may malfunction, possibly causing excessive vacuum in the fuel vapor management system.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the PCM. Dealers will also check for fault codes and replace the CPV as needed. If the CPV is replaced, dealers will inspect and replace the carbon canister, fuel tank and fuel delivery module as necessary. The recall is expected to begin July 29.

Ford's number for this recall is 19S22.
