Some police say their Ford Motor SUV police cars are leaking exhaust fumes into their vehicles, causing officers to suffer from carbon monoxide poisoning.

This has been somewhat of an known issue with D3 Explorers for a few years now. Ford has yet to be able to find the source and therefore a solution to the problem

They advise against idling for long periods of time if possible. Obviously cops can't do that so departments are resorting to CO detectors in their equipment. They also advise against using the air recirculating system for long periods so fresh air can come in through the vents.

What? What happened?

I thought they had gotten this issue under control. Obviously tsbs about sealing and reprogram the HVAC system. I would think a solution would be just add an auxiliary fan to circulate air in the vehicle while extended idling. I would also worry about K9 units.

Maybe they did and I haven't heard about it yet. I have a cousin who owns a 2016 Explorer that got a letter in the mail with those suggestions on it.

What? What happened?

Well last week I caught the tale end of a news story about a local department with "issues".  Then last night  the NBC nightly news (Lester Holt) had a piece on it featuring San Antonio PD.  One young cop out on disability has brought suit against Ford.

 

Appears this is not going away and once the "disability" snake raises its head the legal profession will see a good opportunity- union support and a deep pocket 

 

NBC quoted  Ford spokesman as saying "no problem".

Is Ford supplying free CO detectors?

I drive a 2016 Explorer Platinum with the 3.5 Ecoboost engine and have never experienced the exhaust-smell-in-the-cabin issue.

 

I've heard it happens most under wide-open throttle operation. I've done that many times with my Explorer but never detected a trace of exhaust stink inside.

 

You'd think this issue would affect all D3 Explorers, but I can tell you it doesn't.

I also have a 2016 Explorer Platinum and have never experienced this issue...
