2004 Ford Freestar ProblemsEngine Misfire Due to Plugged EGR Orifice
On higher mileage vehicles, one or more EGR orifice in the intake manifold may plug with sludge. This can cause the engine to misfire when first accelerating because too much exhaust gas is directed into the cylinders where the orifice is not plugged. Cleaning the clogged passages should correct this concern.

2004 Ford Freestar RecallsThe Third Row Seat May Not Latch Correctly
The third row seat can experience rust at the seat anchor mechanism mounted to each rear wheel well. As a result, the seat may not fully latch into its seating position. If the vehicle is hit from the rear, an unlatched seat may increase the risk of injury. Dealers will install new third row seat latch striker mounting brackets to correct this concern.
On certain vehicles, the torque convertor output shaft may fail, resulting in complete loss of power to the drive wheels. This vehicle stalling condition increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the torque convertor to correct this concern. The Ford recall number is 11S25.
The brake lines may have been improperly routed and may chafe on the sway bar. This can cause the lines to develop a brake fluid leak. Dealers will inspect the routing of the lines and secure them if no chafing is found. If chafing is found, affected brake lines will be replaced free of charge to resolve the problem.
