#76 of 143 Re: 2010 Fusion 4cyl Gurgling noise [lazzo]
Feb 08, 2010 (11:16 am)
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.
#80 of 143 2007 Fusion AWD driveshaft vibration
Feb 16, 2010 (5:34 pm)
Any one out there ever re-indexed their Fusion AWD drive shaft to eliminate the vibration. Mine vibrates at between 50-65 mph. I do my own mechanical work, but don't know how much Ford recommends to index it. If the indexing don't work , then I will have to put the up-dated drive shaft in it. Thanks if you can help.
#81 of 143 Am I missing a Book?
Apr 04, 2010 (4:12 pm)
I just purchased a 2010 SEL 3.0 Liter Fusion. I have the maintenance schedule and the owners manual. I do not see basic information like how to change the oil or the cabin air-filter. I see how to check the oil level and things like that but not how to perform normal user maintenance items. Is there a separate book I should also have received? Is this information available on-line? Hyundai had an on-line manual that was like the dealers service manual. . My Nissan I purchased a CD with the dealer type information on Ebay for $20 also. I do not need this much information. I need to know what to torque the oil filter and drain plug to and normal owner type information. Is there a book available with the user maintenance information? How close would the 2009 be? I see these CD's for less than $20.

if you have a vibration all the time, maybe it is a tire?
#83 of 143 Funny Engine Noise
Apr 09, 2010 (10:26 am)
I've had my 2010 Fusion since November (4,000 miles). Anytime I would open the hood, the engine was quiet and all I heard was that nice quiet ticking sound that engines make these days. That all changed after my first oil change. Now I can barely hear the ticking sound because the engine has a very load grumbling idle. I hear this loud engine idle at a stoplights over the radio. If I turn off the radio and the heat/air system the noise is just plain loud.
Maybe a loose belt? Any ideas out there???

Check the air intake and air filter housing. Also check for loose or missing caps. It could also be the exhaust but that would be a coincidence having nothing to do with the service.
#85 of 143 Oil Filter & Plug
Apr 16, 2010 (10:55 pm)
Just came home with a 2010 SE and started to check the car out. Was surprised to see the bottom of the engine all covered up. Just curious, where is the oil plug and filter? I too, am surprised their is not much info in the manual on basic maintenance. Although Fords manual does not list any place I can get a shop manual, I will try Helm and hopefully they will have one. .
