Ford Motor Co. is recalling 1,282,596 2012-18 Ford Focus vehicles with a 2.0L GDI or 2.0L GTDI engine. The Canister Purge Valve (CPV) may malfunction, possibly causing excessive vacuum in fuel vapor management system.


Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the Powertrain Control Module. Dealers will also check for fault codes and replace the CPV as needed. If the CPV is replaced, dealers will inspect and replace the carbon canister, fuel tank and fuel delivery module as necessary.


The recall is expected to begin Dec. 10.  Until the vehicle is serviced for this concern, owners are advised to keep the fuel tank at least halfway full.
Ford's number for this recall is 18S32
