Ford is recalling 91,000 vehicles worldwide because faulty fuel-pump parts could lead to premature stalling while driving without any warning.

What you need to know about the fuel-pump control module recall

The recall announced Wednesday covers certain 2013-15 model year Ford Taurus sedans, Ford Flex crossover utility vehicles, Lincoln MKS sedans, Lincoln MKT SUVs and Ford Police Interceptor sedans.

The faulty fuel-pump control module could cause the engine to stall suddenly and not restart. If this happens while driving, the likelihood of a crash could be increased.

Here’s a breakdown of what’s being recalled, according to Ford:

  • 2013-15 Ford Taurus with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Chicago Assembly Plant, Aug. 25, 2011 to May 31, 2015
  • 2013-15 Ford Flex with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Oakville Assembly, Sept. 12, 2011 to May 29, 2015
  • 2013-15 Lincoln MKS with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Chicago Assembly Plant, Aug. 31, 2011 to May 31, 2015
  • 2013-15 Lincoln MKT with 3.5-liter gasoline turbocharged direct injection engine built at Oakville Assembly, Sept. 12, 2011 to May 29, 2015
  • 2013-15 Ford Police Interceptor sedan, all engines, built at Chicago Assembly, Sept. 8, 2011 to May 31, 2015

In addition, a recall has also been issued for some 2,400 Ford Transit vans model year 2015 and 2016. The Detroit automaker will replace fuel-injection pumps in those vehicles.

Meanwhile, another 23,150 Ford Escape SUVs model year 2017 are being recalled to update power-window software.

No known accidents or injuries have been reported stemming from any of these issues.
