    (Best Syndication News) - Around 1,100,000 Ford vehicles are involved in a new recall, which includes several model years of the Ford F-150 and F-250, and two model years of the Lincoln Blackwood. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced the upcoming recall by the Ford Motor Company.

    The problem is with the mounting strap for the gasoline tank. Places that use road de-icing chemicals, could cause the strap to corrode. This can cause the fuel tank strap to fail, which could allow the fuel lines to disconnect from the fuel tank. The strap failure could also cause the gas tank to touch the ground. Both could cause a fire hazard from the leaking fuel.
