Certain model year 2013 Escape vehicles have an engine compartment fuel line that may have been installed incorrectly when repaired under the prior recall. The misinstalled fuel line could chafe and eventually leak fuel. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.
Additionally, certain 2013 Escape vehicles may experience localized overheating of the engine cylinder head which may cause cracks that could allow oil to leak. Leaking engine oil may come into contact with a hot engine surface potentially resulting in an engine compartment fire.
