Ford issued recalls on Wednesday affecting more than 400,000 vehicles, one for a coolant circulation problem that can cause fires and another an expansion of a door-latch recall.
The vehicles are at risk of fire because, in some cases, there's not enough coolant fluid circulating, causing the engine to overheat and crack the car's cylinder head, which can result in an oil leak, the company stated.
The engine fire recall covers over 360,000 vehicles in North America and Europe.
The company is also recalling 211,000 2014 Fiesta and 2013 and 2014 Fusion and Lincoln MKZ vehicles. Ford will replace all four door latches on every affected vehicle with a stronger version, which should prevent any spring tab breakage in the future.
In May 2014, Ford recalled 692,700 Escape SUVs from the 2013-2014 model years because their doors didn't latch properly.
The owner of a 2013 Ford Fiesta reports having issues with shuddering, lunging, jerking, and the engine failing to engage gear shifts before it eventually experienced overheating and fire under the hood. This can negatively affect the car's structural integrity, which can increase the chance of injury in a side-impact collision.
In these vehicles, a component called a pawl spring tab has a chance of breaking.
