Ford is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Escape vehicles and Focus ST vehicles that are equipped with 2.0 liter engines.

Insufficient compression in the engine wiring harness splices to the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor may provide incorrect signals to the powertrain control module (PCM). The car could hesitate or the engine could stall as a result.

About 133,200 cars are affected by the recall.

Ford will notify owners of the problem and dealers will replace the current crimped splices with new splices, free of charge. Owners can contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673. Ford's number for this recall is 14S17.
