Safety incident date:
Nov 24, 2002
Location:
Melbourne, FL

driving in the rain causes debris and water to get into the fuel tank which leads to a fueling problem. if you try to fuel the car at any speed of the gas pump, gasoline spits back at tremendous pressure. it covers the car, the fueling person and ford is not letting this secret out to the public. i talked to two mechanics at the dealership my car is in (the car has been there for a month, this time) and they said it's a factory defect caused by two canisters that are to keep rain and feul out. this is a dangerous condition!!!!!!!!!!! i've seen people with cigarettes in their hand while refueling. if this happens to them they are going to die because of the amout of fuel that spits back. i've filed for the lemon law because i don't want a car that does this because they are not addressing the issue only replacing the same part.*jb

Ford Escort 1995
Ford Motor Company
Safety incident date:
Nov 28, 2003
Location:
Gibsonia, PA

we are retired and have a 95 ford escort station wagon, garage kept. in august of 2003 we noticed a very strong odor of gasoline in our garage, which is part of the basement. it was so strong at times i did not use the electric door opener. i checked many times and could not find the cause. about this time i also noticed i was not getting as good as gas mileage as i used to. on thankgiving day, i went to my local gas station, and filled the tank as i always do. i then went inside to get a news paper. when i came out i noticed a large wet spot under the middle of the car, maybe about 3 ft in dia. i thought someone spilled something there. i went home and i started to think about it. i went back down to the garage, started to check the tank, and found the fuel filler pipe rusted out near the top. 1.5 inch by about 8 inch. so when i filled the tank, the fuel nozzle was also putting fuel out the rotted out area, which then ran down a plastic shield and ran on the ground, where you would not see it if you just fueled the car. i took it to a ford dealer and told him i would like to have a ford district rep. look at it. the service rep hardly looked up and said the car is out of warranty. i told him there is something wrong when the car has the orginal exhaust system, but the filler pipe rusted out. i had them replace it. they charged me for two hours of labor, when they only had the car for one hour, and only spent 45 minutes working on the job. when i got home i checked the job and found they only put two of the three fastners to hold the shield on. we transport twin grandchildren to school and other places in this car, and one of them is handycapped. the car could have caught on fire, or our home blow up. i have the removed pipe, and i told them it was defective in the welding prosses. no one cared. i checked the new pipe on 3-6-04, three months after it was installed, and the new pipe is starting to rust on each side of the weld seam. *ak

1) the vehicle is a 1997 ford ranger xlt extended cab pickup. a couple of years ago my wife complained about smelling gasoline when she filled the vehicle with gasoline. on more than one occasion gasoline was observed dripping from the area under the fuel tank after the vehicle was filled with gasoline. this would have been in the 2001-2002 time frame. *ak 2) in late april of this year 2004, the check engine warning dashboard warning light came on, and i had the computer code checked to determine if i could make the repairs myself. the problem was the fuel filter, and when i replaced it i noticed a great deal of dirt and debris coming from the inlet side of the filter. this indicated to me that the fuel tank was probably contaminated, and i removed the tank saturday, may 15, to clean the tank. prior to reinstalling the tank, i examined the gasoline filler tube, and found three cracks in the vapor recovery tube that vents gasoline vapors to the filling station vapor recovery system. one of these cracks was quite large, and showed indications of gasoline leaking from this crack. not only was the crack the source of the gasoline that leaked from the system, it was also the entry point for the debris and moisture i found in the tank. in addition, the gasoline that ran from the crack in the recovery tube accumulated in a plastic skid plate that is located under the tank. 3) i of course replace the tube assembly, at a cost of $262.29. i contacted ford motor company about the problem and for reimbursement for the replacement parts. they didn't seem to be the least bit interest in the problem and refused to compensate the expenses. i have retained the old part, and have several photos of the defect.
