FORD ANNOUNCES SERVICE ACTIONS

 FORD ANNOUNCES SERVICE ACTIONS
 DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 2 /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 notifying owners of a voluntary recall of 1989-1990 Taurus and Sable vehicles and certain 1991 Explorer vehicles to replace the end-release safety belt buckles.
 Due to production variations, it is possible that, in some cases, the buckle may not latch or unlatch as intended.
 Owners will be notified by mail and asked to return the vehicles to their dealers to have revised safety belt buckles installed at no charge. A total of about 564,000 vehicles are involved in this action. About 37,100 of those are located in Canada.
 ------
 In a separate emissions recall action, Ford Motor Company is announcing a voluntary emissions recall involving approximately 100 1993 model year Ford Explorers with 4.0-liter engines built for sale in California only, to realign the Cylinder Identification (CID) System.
 It is possible that these vehicles were built with engines having an incorrect alignment of the CID, which may result in inadvertent illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL).
 Owners will be notified by mail, toward the end of November, and asked to return the vehicles to their dealers to have the work performed at no charge.
 ------
 Ford is also announcing a customer satisfaction program that will provide extended coverage of four years/50,000 miles for the exhaust system on 1990 model Lincoln Town Car vehicles. It is possible that the muffler and muffler inlet pipe may corrode.
 The company will contact owners by mail and will cover all costs of parts and labor during this coverage period. Owners who have already paid for muffler replacements due to this condition will be reimbursed. About 140,000 vehicles are eligible for this extended coverage.
