Investigation Starts on Over 200,000 Ford Vehicles with Fuel Leak Concerns

May 11, 2024

McEldrew Purtell currently represents multiple clients affected by a secondary fuel filter leak in Ford vehicles, which poses an increased risk of engine fire. One week before the court ordered inspection and destructive testing in that first case, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched an investigation into over 200,000 Ford vehicles, mirroring claims made by the McEldrew Purtell team.

This investigation follows 27 complaints, including 12 reports of fires and four injuries. The evaluation focuses on Ford F-250, 350, 450, and 550 Super Duty vehicles equipped with 6.7L diesel engines from model years 2015 to 2021. Ford has yet to comment on the matter, but McEldrew Purtell's partner and lead attorney, Dan Purtell, along with the catastrophic injury team and co-counsel, remain steadfast in pursuing justice for those affected by this case.
