The recall information below is provided directly from the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 151,000

On certain vans with ambulance packages or other severe-duty applications involving operation at or near the gross vehicle weight with frequent twisting of the vehicle body, such as off-road, rough road or speed bump events, the 35-gallon mid-ship fuel tank could develop a crack where it contacts the frame cross member. If the fuel tank cracks, fuel leakage could occur. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.

Dealers will inspect the fuel tank and, if cracked, will replace the tank. Insulator pads will be installed on all vehicles to reduce the stress levels in the fuel tank. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began on April 19, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
