leaking fluid

Outta nowhere. My 2013 FLEX STARTED "puttering/jerking", feeling like it was trying not to stall. Then, it began to make this loud "grinding" sound.

Intermittent white smoke, burnt oil smell, dark green coolant. May or may not be accompanied by various sounds. Worse in hot humid weather. Minor loss of power on acceleration. Please add estimated repair costs outside warranty and common fixes for blown turbos/seals to this website. Can turbos be purchased and applied other than dealership?

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.

My tranny went out n I'm trying to fix it but I'm not rich so just trying to explore all options.

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?

Is there a procedure or a video that explains how to perform this on passenger side light?

RPM'S are high and car don't want to go over 10mph

Right after a big storm, we noticed our Sun Roof was leaking when we saw water all over the driver's side seat. It happened a few times, so we tried to cover it, plug it, etc. The other night we had a terrible storm. I went out the next morning to sit my coffee in the cup holder, but it had over an inch of water. The CD compartment was full of water & suddenly the fan was on full blast with hot air. We can't turn it off, nothing on the panel will work, i.e. air, radio, etc. We hoped it would dry out, but it still doesn't work & in 100 degree weather, you don't want a 90 degree heater blowing full blast on you. HELP!!!

when turning corner at low speed? Very dangerous but dealer cannot duplicate the problem so they wont fix it.
happened 4 times.

the power point is on rear of the center console. That is the only one that does not work.

I woke up this morning. I tried starting my Flex and it wouldn't turn over. I cant seem to figure it out

How do I get the window up until I can get service?

Why would my 2011 Ford Flex Titanium just fail the Louisiana motor vehicle inspection despite being in perfect shape? The inspector asked me if I'd had the battery disconnected or replaced recently - which I have. He said he sees that a lot and we should just drive it for a few weeks to reset the computer. It's been two months or more since we had the battery replaced. Any suggestions? I asked the inspector what specifically caused the fail and he just replied that his "machine" just showed failure.

My 2011 flex has not even covered 35000 miles and it started jerking while driving. Took it to a dealer and they say i have to replace transmission, ptu, drive shaft and ptu bracket. i have full warranty but they are not willing to cover it claiming the vehicle was misused and the quote is close to 10k. Any ideas what exactly is the definition of misuse for a car? I have not done anything besides drive on regular roads and maintain the vehicle in best conditions possible.

It then comes back on sometimes and stays on until I restart the vehicle again. What is the problem and how do I fix this?

my 2009 ford flex is leaking fluid either through the power transfer area or though the axle shaft seal.could you quote me a price for the chicagoland area for either repair.

How often should I wax the car?
