Volvo and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are recalling the 2012 Volvo S60 sedan to fix a problem with the fuel system. The fuel pump on some cars may cause the engine to stall even when there is adequate fuel in the tank. Also, a few Ford E-series vans converted to run on propane gas are also being recalled for potential fire risk.
The Problem: The software used to control the car’s fuel pump isn’t compatible with all models of fuel pump. In this case, the pump doesn’t supply an adequate fuel flow to the S60’s engine, resulting in engine hesitation or potentially stalling. Volvo says the issue can occur even when the gas tank is still one-quarter full.
The Fix: Volvo will reprogram the engine-management computer on every 2012 Volvo S60 in order to remedy the problem.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 7558 2012 Volvo S60 sedans.
2011 Ford E-150, E-250, E-350, and E-450 (Converted by Roush)
The Problem: Ford E-series vans converted by Roush Performance Products to run on propane may leak gas. A poorly machined valve could allow propane to escape the gas delivery system, which could cause a fire.
The Fix: Roush will contact owners and replace the valve with an improved version.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 15 2011 Ford E-series vans modified by Roush
