January 15, 2014

Ford Motor Company is recalling roughly 27,930 model year 2012-2013 Edge vehicles equipped with 2.0L engines. The fuel line pulse damper metal housing on the affected Edge vehicles may crack as a result of an improper manufacturing process.

A cracked fuel line pulse damper housing may result in a combination of fuel odor, weepage, or a continuous leak while the fuel system is pressurized. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.

Ford will notify the owners of all recalled Edge vehicles, and local Ford dealers will replace the fuel line with one that does not have a damper, free of charge.

For more information on this recall, contact Ford toll-free at 866-436-7332. Ford's campaign ID number for this recall is 13S13.

IMPORTANT: This recall supersedes recall number 12V-438. All vehicles that have been remedied under the previous recall also need to have the current remedy applied.
