2005 Ford Freestar Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

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.

Most of the PCM problems are from the Coil Pack getting wet causing the coil pack to crack in a few places,that lets your power sparks escape out the walls of the pack....it will cause Transmission to go ..I have been there already...Going get another coil pack now...to check this problem yourself..remove coil pack ..if it,s dark brown it,s bad...but if you can see inside the works inside it,s good...Good Luck ...I like the Van also...

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

2005 Ford Freestar Reviews

Bought the van when it was a year old. It now has a 120,000 miles. Besides the usual maintenance it's been a great vehicle. Road noise has been always a bit loud although tolerable. Great roadtrip vehicle and great for hauling stuff for home projects.

From Ontario, Canada OWNERS BEWARE Transaxle converter needed replacing along with complete rebuild after the transaxle switched from Drive to Reverse with no request from the drivers position. No code on dash. The vehicle was accelerating normally away from a stoplight up to 20-30 kilometers per hour when the following occurred simualtaneously: the engine rpm increased, heard and felt the passenger front tire spinnig and squealing, forward motion slowing, vehicle moving slightly to the left and slightly rearward then I felt the torque converter shaft fail, vehicle continued coasting forward until I pulled into a safe area off of the roadway. The recall for possible torque converter shaft failure may address the result but not the cause of the problem. The problem is with the electronic control system that shift these transaxles. Some owners have had transaxle rebuilds three times. Why would this continue to be a transaxle torque converter shaft failure problem? Feel free to comment.

best van ever got it in 2008 for $6000 and had 65,000 miles and now got over 205,000 miles and still runs great i love it i am a ford guy so that is why i bought it and will buy another when and if this one goes they run great if you take care of them do oil changes when needed check every thing and it is a great van love it !!!

This van had 80,000 miles on it when i purchased it. It now has over 115,000 and still runs great and rides very well. I have a drive train engine trans etc. good till 180,000 miles and i'm going to see if it makes it. at the moment it is great.

stay away from this mini van we have had a year and the brain box has been replaced two times. within 4 months. The cause was water getting into the box because of factory defect that they are not doing a recall for. you will be out going down the street and all of a sudden the car stops spits and sputters like bad gas. you will get 3 or 4 codes from the computer but after all the money i spent 700.00 ford finally fixed the problem no charge, but i am out $700 i paid out in the first pace. they refuse to replace my money.. WHEN THE PCM OR BRAIN BOX GETS WET IT BURNS IT UP. STAY AWAY FROM A FORD.
