Ford Motor Co. is recalling 408,000 cars that are at risk of catching fire due to oil and gas leaks. The Dearborn-based company issued three separate recalls for cars that have problems with their oil and fuel systems. Among the problems reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are faulty engine oil cooler tube assemblies that Ford said may have insufficient crimps on the hose that could lead to a hose separation and an oil leak. The company said the problem, which impacts approximately 8,000 2015-17 Ford Shelby GT350/R Mustang vehicles, “may result in engine failure, and — in the presence of an ignition source — could lead to a fire” if there is a sudden loss of oil in the engine.
