Ford Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

A cosmetic crack may develop on the plastic liftgate trim panel. Ford has released a service procedure to replace the applique without damage the the liftgate glass.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

A failed heater blend door or actuator can cause the temperature control for the HVAC system to stop working. A clicking sound from the dash area would commonly indicate an actuator fault. If the heater gets stuck on the hottest setting, the heater blend door may be broken requiring replacement of the heater box to repair the issue.

Engine -- Verified

The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.

Drive Train -- Verified

A leaking axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal can cause transmission (red) or Power Transfer Unit (PTU) (brown) fluid leaks at the axle area. The axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal may be leaking and should be replaced as required.

Drive Train -- Verified

The automatic transmission may develop shifting concerns. On lower mileage vehicles, upgrading the software in the powertrain control module (PCM) and the transmission control module (TCM) may correct the problem. As the mileage increases, internal transmission damage can occur. Repairs could involve replacement of the valve body or a complete transmission rebuild. Whenever major transmission repairs are made, it is important to be sure th...

Ford Owners' Reviews

Recently, in December of 2013, my spark plug blew out of the number three cylinder. I had a mechanic use a thread chaser to sharpen the threads, re-install the plug, and a new coil. The plug blew out again last week. This time he is goint to re-bore and re-thread the hole and put an insert in it. I will pick it up tomorrow after allowing the high temp.thread sealer to cure. This is a common problem with the Triton engines. Why hasn't Ford been made to fix the problem by installing a new head?

hello from surrey b.c Canada. I have a 2003 explorer 119k that has been idling rough and making a howling sound about every 3 sec to a min. sound comes from the air filter intake.I read some reviews and took the advice of one owner.
I removed the Iac valve at the throttle body and cleaned it with ford tune up spray. the inside was black with carbon. then removed the intake tube from the throttle body and opened the buttetfly manually and cleaned the inside of it . it wasy very black and full of carbon too. the truck runs 100% now. very easy to do on 4.6

I had this problem for about a year and slowly got worse . even took to a mechanic and charged me 100$ but cant fix it.
remember when we were young and we had carburators we would use carbout or something like that ..

I have a great looking black Eddie Bauer 2000 Ford Expedition, that I bought from my sister who purchased it new. It's been repainted all-black, tinted the windows and added 22" chrome spoke wheels and 295x45x22 tires so, it looks newer to most people. My annoyance is three of my passenger doors won't open most of the time by the new remote. Also, my odometer light goes on and off. However, my biggest problem is the 11.8 mpg around town but, get 16.4mpg on highway when cruising at 70 mph.

My 1994 Ford Aerostar All Wheel Drive 7 passenger van is great...hope I can keep it going a long time!

I have only 43,000 miles on this car and it squeekes like a rusty bed spring.

The heat shield was loose and has been fixed
Front sway bars and sway bar link was replace but sound continues.
It sounds like the fram is coming apart. I hate this and will never get another Ford. it is an embarrassment.
