Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: September 15, 1978
Summary: These transmissions may contain improperly manufactured parking pawl actuating rods. Consequently, the unhardened cam surface of these rods can allow the rod to deform during use with resultant increase in shift efforts and difficulty in releasing the parking pawl and engaging the parking gear.
Consequence: If the parking gear cannot be engaged and parking brake is not set, the vehicle could roll free, especially if parked on an incline, endangering nearby persons and property. Note: the parking brake should be used whenever the vehicle is to be left unattended, until the defect is corrected.
Remedy: Dealer will replace the transmission parking pawl actuating rod without charge to owner.

Note:
Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles and light trucks equipped with C-6 automatic transmissions.
