Recall Creation Date: October 12, 1979
Component Description: Power Train: Automatic Transmission
Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: November 27, 1978
Summary: The involved vehicles were equipped with automatic transmissions in which the parking pawl was not heat-treated. During normal vehicle operation, a parking pawl that has not been heat-treated could become deformed or worn to the point that the transmission will not lock in "park". As a result, the vehicle could roll free if the driver does not set the parking brake when parking or leaving vehicle unattended.
Consequence: This condition could result in vehicle damage, property damage, and personal injury. Note: owner is advised to engage the parking brake when leaving the vehicle parked or unattended.
Remedy: Dealer will inspect and, if necessary, replace the parking pawl with one that has been heat-treated.
