DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Ford is recalling more than 202,000 vehicles in North America to fix gas leaks, air bag sensors, stalling and other issues.

The largest of five recalls announced Tuesday affects about 135,000 F-150 pickups and Ford Flex family haulers from the 2014 model year. Faulty passenger seat weight sensors can stop air bags from inflating in crashes. Dealers will recalibrate the sensors.

About 38,600 Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Cars from 2005 to 2011 are being recalled for a second time to fix steering shafts. Improper repairs can cause loss of steering. Dealers will inspect and replace parts if needed.

Ford also is recalling 27,600 Transit Connect small vans from 2014 for potential fuel line leaks, and two smaller recalls cover 2015 Transit vans and 2014 F-150 pickups.
