FORD ANNOUNCES IMPLEMENTATION OF SERVICE ACTION

 FORD ANNOUNCES IMPLEMENTATION OF SERVICE ACTION
 DEARBORN, Mich., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement


may be attributed to John P. King, Parts and Service Engineering office manager, Ford Parts and Service Division:
 Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) is voluntarily notifying owners of the implementation of a previously announced safety recall involving approximately 755,700 -- 1990 model year Rangers, 1990-91 Aerostars and 1991 Explorers to modify the A4LD transmissions. It is possible that the park mechanism may not take hold when the shift selector lever is placed in the "PARK" position. If this occurs, it is possible that the vehicle could roll as if in neutral.
 Owners were initially notified in October 1991 of this concern and cautioned to use the parking brake until the repair procedures could be developed. Owners will again be notified by mail and asked to return the vehicles to their dealers to have the repair performed at no charge.
 To correct this condition, dealers will install a revised spring within the transmission and also add a transmission shift cable spring which will facilitate the linkage adjustment.

 In a separate action, Ford Motor Company is voluntarily recalling about 950 -- 1990 F-Series medium trucks with 7-liter engines to assure acceptable emission levels.
 Ford's testing of the vehicles indicates that carbon monoxide exhaust emission levels may be unacceptable. Dealers will replace the thermactor air by-pass valves and air pumps, in order to reduce these emission levels.
 Owners will be notified by mail and asked to return their vehicles to dealers to have the work performed at no charge.
