Roush CleanTech recalled several 2015-17 Roush-modified Ford E-450, F59, F-650 and F-750 vehicles equipped with Generation 4 propane autogas conversion kits, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The recall affects about 2,000 vehicles equipped with Roush CleanTech autogas fuel systems, the company says. The vehicles were recalled because four solenoid coils need to be updated with new coils, Roush CleanTech says.

To date, three separate solenoid failures have been reported on units in the field, according to NHTSA. If not addressed, the solenoid coils may short circuit, shutting off the flow of propane to the vehicle.

Roush CleanTech notified its fuel control valve supplier Parker Hannifin and its distributor Exotic of the incidents. The company is also notifying owners of the recalled vehicles, and its dealers will replace the fuel control valve solenoid free of charge. Roush CleanTech adds that the vehicles can still be driven and operated as normal until the new components are installed.

Owners of the recalled vehicles can reach out to Roush CleanTech at 1-800-597-6874 with any questions.
