ford fuel Filler Tube Assembly Has A Defect. The Plastic Sleeve That Is “tie Wrapped” To The Tube Causes The Outside Of The fuel Filler Tube To Collected Moisture And Corrode. This Goes Undetected Until Large Quantities Of Gasoline Are Dumped Onto The Roadway After Fill Up. This Happened To My Vehicle And In 30 Minutes Of Research On Your Site, I Was Able To Find Many Other Occurrences With Other ford Models. This Is An Existing Environmental Disaster And A Huge Fire/safety Hazard. Does Anyone Remember The Pinto? A Simple Fender Bender With One Of These Corroded Tubes Could Be Devastating. I Will Be Filing A Similar Complaint With ford And The Epa. Identical Complaints Filed With Nhtsa: 10276760, 10265682, 10253564, 10249748, 10276760, 729302 Your Search Engine Makes It Difficult To Search Multiple ford Models And Years For This Problem – The Above Complaints Were Compiled In Just A Few Minutes And Indicate To Me That There Is Serious Problem – Not To Mention The $400 + Each Of These Owners Need To Pay For This Repair, The Cost And Environmental Impact Of The Untold Gallons Of Gasoline Sloshing Onto The Pavement And Engine Damage From Contaminants Entering The fuel System. From The Dates Of These Other Complaints, I Can Only Assume That Nothing Is Being Done About This – A Recall Could Allow For A Simple Preventive Measure Of Removing The Oem Plastic Sleeve That Is Causing The Problem To Begin With. My Mechanic Reported To Me That The Sleeve Provides No Useful Purpose. I Have The Defective Part And Have Pictures That Can Be Provided By Request. *tr

The Fill Tube Between The fuel Tank And The Nozzle Input Has Rusted Thru The Entire Length, Worst Under The Plastic/rubber Wrap At The Tank Inlet, Causing fuel To Spill Onto The Ground When Filling The Tank. Dealer Estimates Repair Cost At $340. On Line Inquiries Revealed “many-many” Other Complaints. No ford Recalls Or Service Bulletins. If Parked For A Few Days , The Battery Runs Down. Checked For Head/parking/brakes Lights Left On As Well As Those Inside Passenger Area And In Trunk. None Found. Mechanic Believes Due To Radio/cd Player Amp Draw To Support Clock (etc) Even While Off???? Installed New Battery, Ok For Awhile, Now Doing It Again. *tr
