Ford Recall 07S56: Transmission Cooler Line Attachment Bolt Torque

2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

If leaking transmission fluid contacts the catalytic converter, it may pose a risk of fire.

Power Train — Automatic Transmission — Cooling Unit And Lines

Summary
On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with the 4.6L engine and 6R transmission, the bolt securing the transmission oil cooler line fittings at the transmission may not have been sufficiently torqued during vehicle assembly. As a result, the bolt may loosen and the transmission oil cooler lines may disengage from the transmission, causing a transmission fluid leak.
Actions
Dealers will inspect and have the transmission cooler line attachment bolt tightened free of charge. The recall began on August 30, 2007. Owners may contact Ford at 1-800-392-3673.
