FORD ANNOUNCES SERVICE ACTIONS

 DETROIT, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Owners of approximately 3,900 1993-model Probe vehicles are being notified today by Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) of a voluntary safety recall to inspect liftgate struts for undersized rivet heads on the strut pivot pins.
 An estimated 100 of these vehicles may have this condition, which could result in the liftgate strut detaching from the mounting bracket when the liftgate is open and upward force is applied. If this occurs, the liftgate could drop unexpectedly. Ford is aware of no accidents or injuries reported related to this condition.
 Owners are being notified of this recall by mail. Ford dealerships will perform this service without charge. About 280 of the 3,900 vehicles are located in Canada.
 -----
 In a separate action, owners of about 101,400 1991-model Escort/Tracer vehicles equipped with manual transmissions are being notified by Ford Motor Company of a voluntary safety recall to inspect the vehicle's ignition lock cylinder and replace it if necessary.
 Some of these vehicles may have been built with ignition lock assemblies containing roll pins that may not remain in place. As a result, the ignition lock cylinder may come out of the steering column housing which in turn could cause the steering column to lock up. No accidents or injuries have been reported in connection with this condition.
 Owners are being notified of this program by mail. Ford and Lincoln-Mercury dealers will perform this service without charge. About 8,800 of these vehicles are in Canada.
