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.

Drive Train -- blue_pocket_bug and 1 other

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.

Ford Freestar Reviews

my 2005 ford freestar is corroded with rust behind drivers side tire and there is a steel metal part that is falling apart from corrosion. nits a nightmare!

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.

I love the sturdiness and the power of this Van. It feels better than any imports or any GM models. but it could use an extra foot of length, cant fit an 4 x 8 footer inside. Now after 250000km u-joint on my steering is jamming and cruse control is intermittent. Price to fix the two is about $1000 and that is about the value of the vehicle if put on the Kijiji. If they continued making this Van I would like it.

La camioneta FreeStar del 2006, ella prendia,un dia se tuvo que auxiliarla por la bateria que estaba danada, y ahora no prende la camioneta, no hace nada de sonido al pasar el swich. Que podra ser????

This Van is great. Just had torque converter recall work finished and all went smooth with just 3 hours time. You people that destroy 2 and 3 transmission on a car must be really stomping the gas pedals. My van has 93000 miles and drives like showroom condition. My tech told me that my old converter shaft had very little wear and i am not a gas pedal stomper. I expect to get 200000 from this van
