DEARBORN (AP) – Ford is expanding an investigation of engine fires to Europe. The company has had seven reports of fires in 1.6-liter EcoBoost engines sold in Europe.
The engines power Focus and Mondeo sedans and Galaxy minivans.
Last week Ford recalled more than 89,000 new Escape SUVs and Fusion sedans in North America because the 1.6-liter engine can overheat and catch fire.
Ford hasn’t recalled any vehicles in Europe.
The company has not yet determined the cause of the engine fires.
