Ford Flex QuestionsExcessive heat from engine compartment when running (1 answer)
We recently bought a 2010 Ford Flex. When the car is running and you are standing next to it, you feel a lot of heat from the engine that blows on you. It that normal or is there something wrong? We have not experienced this in the past with our other cars.
We can see what gear we're in up by the speedometer but seems like the gear we're in should also light up down by the gear shift lever. Is this normal or should it indeed be lighted here?
