Ford will be issuing a new recall to recall back some of their models after it was discovered that the torque converters might be defective.

A recall will affect the Ford Edge build from 25th of April 2017, Ford Fusion build from May 4th to June 15th 2017 as well as the Lincoln MKZ made between the 4th of May until the 19th of June 2017. Ford added that the torque converters may have inadequately welded studs that could detach which could lead to a loss of motive power.

Although the vehicle will lose its motive power, the power steering, power brakes, electrical function and vehicle restraint system will still work. The recall will affect those powered by a 2.0-liter gasoline that is fitted with a 6F35 transmission.

A total of 5914 units will be affected in North America including vehicles from Canada, Mexico and more. The fix will be free of charge.
