WASHINGTON, DC--September 6, 2012: The National Highway and Safety Administration has announced that Ford is recalling the 2013 Escape. This is to fix engine plugs that could leak coolant. This is the third time the 2013 Escape has been recalled.

Ford is recalling only models with the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine, which was recalled in July for fuel lines that could split and leak gasoline. Ford says 6,146 vehicles with that engine will be recalled in the U.S., out of about 7,600 worldwide. Dealers will seal the plug and fit a cap on top beginning Sept. 10. .

Ford recalled nearly all 2013 Escape crossovers in July for carpet padding that could interfere with the driver's use of the brake pedal. During that month, Ford recalled nearly 485,000 Escape SUVs from 2001-2004 after NHTSA received 99 owner complaints -- including the report of a fatal crash in January -- of throttles not returning to idle when the gas pedal was released.

Ford Escape owners can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.
