2012-14 Ford Kuga 1.6 EcoBoost: under-bonnet fire and overseas recall

In South Africa, Ford has issued a recall of Ford TF Kuga vehicles that had 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engines and were manufactured from December 2012 to February 2014. These Ford Kuga vehicles were manufactured at Ford’s plant in Valencia, Spain, as are Australian-delivered vehicles.

In these Ford Kuga vehicles, it is understood that poor coolant circulation could cause the cylinder head to crack and leak oil; if this oil came into contact with hot components in the engine bay, it could ignite and cause an under-bonnet fire. It is understood that recalled vehicles will undergo a software update and have the cylinder head checked for damage.

In South Africa, it is understood that 39 engine fires for Ford Kuga vehicles have been reported to Ford SA.
