Ford, the second-largest car manufacturer in the U.S., said that while the likelihood of fires was rare, it was compelled to offer the recall after being informed of at least 20 such incidents.

According to the company, a cracked fuel injector can cause fuel or fuel vapor to accumulate and result in a fire under the vehicle’s hood. Repairs are not yet available, but Ford is working on a software update that will alert owners if their vehicle’s fuel injector is compromised.
