Seventh recall issued for Louisville-built Ford Escape

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Another recall for the Louisville-built Ford Escape: this time to fix oil and fuel leaks that can cause fires.

The SUV has been recalled seven times since it was redesigned and went on sale last year.

Ford says the cylinder heads can overheat and crack, causing oil leaks. Of those SUVs, fuel lines on about 12,000 may have been installed incorrectly and could become chafed and leak gas.

Many were repaired under a previous recall.
