#70 of 143 2010 Fusion 4cyl Gurgling noise
Jan 21, 2010 (11:53 am)
My new Fusion is making a gurgling noise when I press down on the accelerator.
This always happens when the car is just started (cold), but occaisonally happens under normal conditions. I took it to a dealer and of course the car was warmed up and they could find nothing wrong. They tested the pressure as well and said it was fine. I guess my next option would be to leave the car at the dealer for a while so they can hear the noise when cold.
I did find this post online which sounds very similar:
Anyone else have this "noise?" Any ideas what it could be?

"They tested the pressure as well and said it was fine. "
I've seen similar issue on another forum, and they suspect air in the coolant system, and you're hearing it gurgle in the heater core. Forgot if a flush helped, search some other Ford Fusion forums and I think you'll find it. I'll post back if I see it again and have the time.

Pressure check to see if there was a leak in the coolant system. They said there was not. Let me know what you find.
I've seen a number of forums but no solutions.

Yes, that fordfusionforum sums it up nicely. That is the exact problem I am having.
Is there a way to contact Ford to let them know we are having this issue?
Or is bringing it to the dealer for service good enough?

I'm pretty sure there is a place in Ford you can contact, and the info should be in one of the manuals you got with the car, but I haven't dealt with anything like that before. I've read of other people going this route, but I haven't ever had any issues nearly bad enough to require this. You may have to have repeated unsatisfactory dealer visits before they would step in and do anything. I'm not having this gurgling issue. Had the slow crank/no start issue, and the dealer did the TSB, no problem. Good luck, and I hope there is a solid solution soon.

I was the one who started the thread in Fordfusionforum discussing the problem. I would take the car to the dealer and reference the forum comments and solutions so far that haven't worked. The most recent one today discusses the placement of the coolant supply lines to the heater core. Interestingly enough, and I verified it, you can't order a replacement core because that part has been recalled!
The more people with this problem who take their 2010 Fusions with this problem to the dealer, the more Ford will be ready to fix it. Remember the old adage....the squeaky gear gets the grease.

If the 2010 Fusion's Heater Core has been recalled why haven't we received any word from Ford on replacing it? Is this something that just takes time?
My tech told me that Service Bulletins only come out once a quarter. So perhaps this recall will hit the streets in early March?
Yes, I have been following FordFusionForum.com daily. My dealer only wants to "burp" the air out like already has been tried and failed, as you guys proved.

Is this only a 4 cyl problem or does it also apply to the V6? Does anyone know?

The gurgling is limited to the 2.5L engines.
There was no RECALL on the heater cores. It's an extended warranty in case a problem occurs. It's not a safety issue.
