Canadians should contact Transport Canada with their concerns. While they
don't view failures of the ignition switch to be a safety hazard, they are
tracking complaints, and urging Ford to apply a fix.

It is not a recall !!
I checked with a Ford dealer, and it is a repair if needed program.
I was told it would cost me $90 per hour, until they prove it is the Fuel
Control Module, (Not the Fuel Pump).
So it will be a crapshoot when you go in.
That's not true! I went in today and they are ordering me the correct fuel
pump and replacing for free and Ford is reimbursing me my money for what I

ok, but a month ago I had an incident on the highway, Where when I went to
pass, The car just bogged down. I had to abandon the pass and was able to
get back in line. it was a potentially dangerous situation, but have had no

The dealer said the repair would be done for up to 10 years if it could be
proved the fuel module was the problem. Maybe the Fuel Pump and the Fuel
Control module are the same thing ?

to 10 years from the original warranty start date for certain 2000-2001
If the vehicle is having the symptoms described in the letter (engine
hesitation, loss of power, surging, and other similar symptoms) and it can
not be proved to be the fault of any other component, or if it is proved to
be caused by the fuel delivery module, then the fuel delivery module will be
replaced when available.
I sold my 2000 wagon for a 2003 ZX5 as I wanted a 5 door but actually the
reason was it kept blowing starter fuses and at $3. a pop I was getting tired
of it and they couldn't find the reason for it. But after I traded it in it
FINALLY failed and they found it was a TSB just out about a wire welded to the
engine...causing it. Linda
