The Ford Motor Company is cooperating with the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) by voluntarily recalling
253,076 sport utility vehicles, namely:

(1) Ford E150, model 2003-2004

(2) Ford E250, model 2003-2004

(3) Ford E350, model 2003-2004

(4) Ford E450, model 2003-2004

(5) Ford E550, model 2003-2004

On certain vans, the air filter element material process
resulted in an air filter paper element that can smolder or
burn. This change in filter paper composition combined with the
configuration of the air induction system, may allow hot carbon
particles to contact the air filter element during certain
driving conditions that create hot particles. These hot
particles may ignite the air filter element with the potential
for air induction system damage or underhood fire.

Dealers will inspect and replace the air filter element. The
recall is expected to begin October 8,2004. For more details,
contact the Company by Phone: 1-800-392-3673 or contact the
NHTSA's auto safety hotline: 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).
