 FORD ANNOUNCES SERVICE ACTIONS
 DEARBORN, Mich., March 31 /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 announcing a voluntary emissions recall of approximately 150,000 1989-1991 model year Mustangs equipped with 5.0-liter engines to inspect and possibly modify a wiring assembly that may have a loose connection.
 This condition may cause illumination of the "Check Engine" light that alerts the vehicle operator that the Electronic Engine Control (EEC) system is not operating properly. This could lead to unnecessary replacement of emission control components.
 To correct this condition, dealers will inspect the vehicle and, if necessary, install a wiring harness assembly.
 IN CALIFORNIA ONLY:
 Ford Motor Company is announcing a voluntary emissions recall of approximately 19,000 1988 and 1989 model year Escort vehicles with 1.9-liter engines and manual transmissions, built for sale in California. These vehicles may exceed California emissions standards.
 To correct this condition, dealers are being asked to replace three Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) control devices and reset the engine ignition timing.
 IN CALIFORNIA ONLY:
 Ford Motor Company is announcing a voluntary emissions recall of approximately 18,000 1988 model year Taurus, Sable and Continental vehicles with 3.8-liter engines and built for sale in California. These vehicles may exceed California emissions standards.
 To correct this condition, dealers will replace the catalyst and the Electronic Engine Control (EEC) processor, deactivate the thermactor air pump, and modify the evaporative emissions control system.
 Owners will be notified by mail and asked to return the vehicles to their dealers to have the work performed at no cost.
