FORD ANNOUNCES SERVICE ACTIONS

 FORD ANNOUNCES SERVICE ACTIONS
 DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statements


may be attributed to John P. King, Parts and Service Engineering Office manager, Ford Parts and Service Division:
 Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) is notifying owners of a safety recall involving about 99,000 1988-91 model year Lincoln Continental vehicles to replace the front brake rotors. Vehicles currently registered, or originally sold in the northeastern and Great Lakes areas of the United States are subject to this recall. Severe weather conditions and the extensive usage of calcium or sodium chloride road salts may cause severe corrosion of the front brake rotors.
 In cases of severe corrosion, the braking surface portion of the rotor may fracture from the hub of the rotor and the driver will experience higher than normal pedal efforts, moderate pulling to one side or the other during braking and a loud grinding noise. Minimum stopping distances may be increased.
 Vehicles affected in the recall are located in the following states that use large amounts of road salts: Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Wisconsin.
 Owners will be notified by mail and asked to return the vehicles to their dealers to have replacement rotors installed at no charge.
 -----
 Ford also is notifying owners of approximately 434,000 1988-90 model Taurus, Sable and Continental vehicles, with 3.8-liter engines, that their cars may exceed emissions standards.
 To correct this condition, dealers will modify the evaporative emissions control system. About 16,000 of these vehicles are located in Canada.
 Owners will be notified by mail and asked to return the vehicles to their dealers to have the work performed at no charge.
