Ford announced that several Ford SUVs caught on fire due to potential cracks in the vehicles’ fuel lines.

As part of the recall, Ford said that a total of 634,000 of the SUVs are being taken all the road and fixed due to the issues.

The company said that the fuel injector can crack in some Escapes from the model year 2022 through 2023 and Ford Bronco Sports 2021 through 2023 that have the 3-cylinder 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. The crack could allow fuel, or fuel vapor, to leak over hot parts of the vehicle and start a fire.

Ford said that owners of the SUVs don't need to stop driving them around but they need to take them to their Ford dealership.

The dealership will install a software update that will detect a possibly cracked injector. If an injector crack is detected, a warning light will show on the vehicle’s dashboard and engine power will be reduced. This will allow the driver to find a safe place to pull over, stop and call for service.

Dealers will also install a tube that will drain leaked fuel down onto the ground and away from hot surfaces in the vehicle. The company will complete the needed work will be performed at no cost to the SUVs’ owners.
