Ford Recalls Announced: Ford Motor Co. recalled about 26,000 of its 1990 Ford Probe models for an emission problem and 20,400 of its 1988-89 Ford Festiva cars to replace a valve. The Probe recall involves cars with Ford’s three-liter engine. Dealers will install a new electronic engine control module. In the Festiva recall, which affects only cars sold in California, exhaust gas recirculation valves will be replaced. A malfunction could cause a light to falsely indicate an emissions system problem. Owners are being notified by mail and repairs will be performed for free.
