2014 focus recall (Fuel Pump)

A recall has been issued for a number of Ford products, including the 2014 Focus built at the MAP between October 26, 2013 and May 22, 2014.

It is a part of a lager recall on a Bosch fuel pump in which the pump may seize and cause the car to not start or worse, a full loss of power while driving.

-2015 Edge
-2014 Edge
-2014 Escape
-2014 Transit Connect

2014 Ford Focus Recall (fuel pump)

Applies to 2014 model year Focus MK3 built between October 26, 2013 and May 22, 2014 at the Michigan Assembly Plant

This involves "nickel plating on the fuel pump, which may cause it to seize. If the fuel pump seizes, a vehicle may not start or may stall while driving. An engine stall without warning while driving increases the risk of a crash."

After you receive a recall notice by mail, you can take your vehicle to a Ford dealer who will replace the fuel delivery module at no charge.

Good question when the door jamb sticker only indicates the month. Mine is Oct 2013. So how do I know if I'm before or after October 26th? My window sticker says 11 12 13, which I presume to mean November 12th. So why does the door jamb sticker say October? Then I go to etis.ford.com and enter my VIN and it says Build Date: 01 October 2013. I guess Etis is the best source.

But why are my build date and window sticker date (which I understand is the date it was invoiced???) 6 weeks apart? On my last Focus I seem to remember they were only days apart.

You would be correct in using Ford Etis as the best source for your build date. The date on your window sticker likely has to do with when it left the factory. If you were to search for the digital version of the sticker, it would show the correct build date.

The web sticker I just looked up has the same date as the paper copy that came with the car. Six weeks after the Etis build date.
