Ford said Wednesday that it would fix defects in more than 441,000 vehicles in North America through separate recalls, including certain versions of the popular Escape sport-utility vehicle and Fusion sedan.
The engine fire recall covers over 360,000 vehicles in North America and Europe.
Ford says that it will mail owners of the affected vehicles information on how to check and refill coolant.
A lack of coolant circulation in some 230,000 vehicles with 1.6-liter GTDI engines can cause the engine to overheat, which can then cause the cylinder head to crack and leak oil.
"Customers can continue to drive their vehicles, but should see their dealer if their vehicle exhibits a coolant leak, overheating or frequently needs coolant added", the company said in a news release Wednesday.

And then there was Smart, making all the little plays that won't always land in the highlights. Smart has a propensity to embellish contact, though this was one of the less egregious cases.
The company is also expanding a previous recall on faulty door latches to include an additional 211,000 cars. Pawl spring tabs in the interior door-latch pulls can break, which means the door may not be secured even if it seems to be closed, the company said. Dealers are to replace all four side door latches with an improved service door latch.
The Problem: Vehicles may experience a vibration in the driveline at speeds above 75 miles per hour; the vibration could fracture the transmission or driveline components, leading to a loss of power while driving or unintended vehicle movement while the pickup is in Park if the parking brake is not in use. It affects only 548 vehicles.
Ford isn't aware of any accidents or injuries in the three other recalls.
Dealers will replace the two-piece driveshaft with a new three-piece driveshaft and two center bearing brackets at no charge to the customer.
