Roush Recalls 430 Ford Trucks for Defective Fuel Control Valve Solenoid

March 28, 2017 by Carina Ockedahl, @Ockis9

Roush CleanTech is recalling 434 modified Ford trucks because an issue with the fuel control valve solenoid coils could stop the flow of propane to the engine, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall affects 2015-2017 Ford E-450, F59, F-650 and F-750 vehicles that have been altered by Roush to include certain propane conversion kits.

The fuel control valve solenoid on these trucks may short circuit, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. If this happens, the valve will close — thereby halting the flow of propane to the engine — and causing the engine to shut off in turn.

“An engine stall while driving increases the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said.

So far, three incidents regarding solenoid failure have been reported “on units in the field,” according to the recall report.

The defective fuel control valve solenoid coils were manufactured by Parker Hannifin Corporation. Roush will fix the issue by replacing the piece free of charge.

Owners will be notified of the recall between March 31 and April 30.
