FORD ANNOUNCES SERVICE ACTION

 DETROIT, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Owners of about 500 1993-model Thunderbird Supercoupe vehicles are being informed of a customer satisfaction program being offered by Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F). This is not a safety recall; it is a customer service program.
 Under the program, the throttle body assembly in these vehicles will be replaced. These assemblies may have an oversized hole in the throttle lever. This condition may cause the automatic transmission throttle valve cable to disconnect from the throttle body, which could lead to transmission failure. Ford has had no reports of this condition occurring in the field.
 Owners are being notified of this program by mail. Ford dealers will perform this service free of charge. About 30 of these vehicles are located in Canada.
 -----
 Owners of certain 1993-model F-Series and Bronco vehicles are being notified by Ford Motor Company of a voluntary safety recall to inspect electric-shift transfer case assemblies. Of the nearly 1,500 vehicles included in this recall, an estimated 100 were built and shipped with prior-model motors in the transfer case assemblies.
 When operated in the 4x4 high-range mode, vehicles with the incorrect motor may shift into "neutral" when coasting forward or being driven in reverse. This condition does not affect operation in the 4x2 mode or the 4x4 low-range mode and does not affect steering and braking functions.
 If a driver parks the vehicle in the 4x4 high-mode without fully setting the parking brake, the vehicle could roll as if in neutral gear. Ford is aware of no reports of accidents or injuries in connection with this condition.
 Owners are being notified of this program by mail. Ford dealers will service the vehicles without charge. About 70 of the vehicles included in this recall are located in Canada.
