Ford is recalling nearly 43,000 SUVs because a leak from the fuel injectors can cause an engine fire. The recall covers certain 2022 and 2023 model-year Ford Bronco Sport SUVs and all 2022 Escape SUVs. The vehicles all have 1.5-liter engines.

The automaker said that the fuel injectors can crack and allow a buildup of gasoline and vapors which can ignite in the intense heat of the engine.

Ford has received five reports of under-the-hood fires due to the issue. The company also completed 14 warranty replacements of the cracked fuel injectors.

To fix the issue, technicians will install a tube to keep gasoline away from the hot surfaces inside the engine. The repair will also include an update to the fuel control software to disable the high-pressure fuel pump if there are any drops in pressure in the fuel injection system.

You can check to see if your car is under recall by going to and entering your 17-digit vehicle identification number.
