Ford Motor Company is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Ford Escape vehicles manufactured February 26, 2009, to April 29, 2012, and 2010-2011 Mercury Mariner vehicles manufactured February 25, 2009, to December 12, 2010. On vehicles with a 3.0L engine, the Fuel Delivery Module (FDM) may crack, causing a fuel leak.

A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

329,265 vehicles are affected by the recall.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the FDM flange with one that has a redesigned fuel supply port, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 12, 2016.

I just purchased a 2012 Ford Escape with 30k miles on it. The dealership made me sign paperwork that stated it had a fuel module recall. I drove 50 miles towards home and stopped to get gas. When I tried to restart the vehicle. It would not turn over. It just kept trying to start. It seemed like the vehicle was not getting gas. I immediately texted the sales woman at the dealership and told her about the issue. She replied that she was sorry about my luck but I signed a paper stating the vehicle had a recall on the fuel module and that when I had the recall completed, it may fix the problem or it may not. I took the vehicle to my local Ford Dealer and he told me that the dealership that purchased the vehicle from already performed the recall work a week earlier. Now I am really upset with the sales woman. I call the used car manager and he tells me that he had a relative that had the exact same problem and that his dealership had to replace the fuel pump to fix the problem. He said that Ford would replace the fuel pump under the recall and if not his dealership would pay for it. I asked his service manager to call my local service manager and explain what needed to be done. My service manager is skeptical that this solution will fix the problem. So now, I have an appointment on Monday to have the local dealership troubleshoot and hopefully fix the issue and will be without a vehicle for 2 to 5 days.

I just had My fuel delivery module replaced on my 2012 Escape. Immediately upon starting the vehicle, while in the parking lot of the dealership, I noted the vehicle was long cranking. I tried it 4 times and thought it was just a freak incident. Later that evening, it has an extremely long crank before starting...I could remove my hand from the key and it countinued to crank, and eventually started. I called the dealer, and was instructed to bring it back the following day. Yesterday was that day. They did the recall over, mentioning possible oxygen in the line, said it was fixed, and gave me the keys. After making a stop in my way home and restarting the vehicle, it long cranked again. I immediately went back to the dealer. They instructed me to come back today, when a loaner is available, so they can inspect over night. Never had an issue starting my vehicle before this recall was "repaired". To be continued......

Same dam issue. Waiting on dealer now to tell me what they THINK is the problem after they told me it was fine yesterday and it was starting that way because the hose was longer. This is the third time I had it there having to get it towed back this time. Totally ruined my plans to go away for Christmas at this point which really ticked me off. The dealer didn't even offer a loaner. They did pay for towing after I complained that the problem was Fords not mine.Now I have to pay for a new starter because their safety recall module blew mine out because my car wouldn't start properly! and because my car is 2010 they won't admit that there is a correlation between problems with starting the car after the module was installed and the starter blowing up! that starter could have gone on for 2 years or more. My car was fine until that module was installed.
