Ford Motor Co. [NYSE: F] has issued two recalls covering some 2010 Ford Ranger and 2011 Ford F-Series trucks, along with the 2011 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX.

The first, covering 23,688 Ford Ranger pickups built between October 2009 and May 2010 at the Twin Cities Assembly plant, concerns an engine fuel line layer that might not have been properly installed. Ford says that the fuel line could chafe and develop a leak, with a possible fuel odor—with the leak potentially resulting in a fire.

To fix this issue, dealers will inspect the line for wear, replace it if necessary, and trim the throttle-body shield away from the fuel line to prevent chafing.

Ford also today issued a separate recall, covering 2011 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX models, as well as some Ford F-150 and Super Duty F-Series trucks for a potential electrical short. About 8,000 vehicles in all are covered by this recall, which brings them back to the dealership to be checked—via a diagnostic system—for an issue that affects only certain body control modules.

If owners have any questions, they're advised to contact Ford at 866-436-7332. Both recall efforts are expected to start March 7.
