Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 hit with a recall

Follow Jeff


Apparently it’s not just Corvette Z06 owners who feel the heat. Those lucky souls who purchased the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 might be interested in taking a spin back to their dealerships. That’s because the high-performance Mustang has been hit with a recall notice.

According to Motor1, the issue at hand lies with an engine oil cooler tube. The crimping on the tube might be insufficient and thus the line could leak. This could lead to an engine seizure or possibly even a fire.

The total number of cars hit by the recall is 8,026. That figure represents 6,523 examples of the car sold in the United States. If you own one of the affected machines, you can swing by your local dealer for a new oil cooler tube assembly. Then you can get back to your line lock parties, track day fun, and glorious noise creation.

Or, you can scare the gathered crowds at your local Cars and Coffee event. Don’t be “that guy,” though. We’d hate to have to run a video of you winding up the 5.2-liter flat-plane-crank V-8, only to drift the car into a wall or spin into oncoming traffic.
