I smell burning oil and may be an oil gasket leak. Is this a recall issue? My son looked and felt oil leaking from the gasket.
When I turn on the heat or air nothing comes through my vents but when the air conditioning is turned on I still hear that extra noise under my hood so I’m thinking it’s just hopefully a fuse
Power Steering Assist failure warning came on intermittently and the steering felt difficult in my 2011 Ford Fusion while I was out of town. I took the car to the nearest Ford Dealer who told me the problem could either be a software update was needed or a steering gear was going out. They diagnosed the problem to be a steering gear going out but didn't have the part, so it was ordered and supposed to be in next day. It didn't come in the next day and I was already 2 days overdue, the warning light was out and the car was steering okay so I nervously drove it on home. We then took the car to our local Ford dealer who told us that there were no codes or problems showing up on the car so they could not fix it and we'd just have to wait until the warning came on again. Why wouldn't the problem with the steering gear still show up in diagnostics if it hadn't been repaired? How dangerous is it to just keep driving the car until the warning light or code comes back on and the power steering fails?
Headlights and day run lights are fine, brake lights work, but no tail lights
Just started making this sound, what is going on a, 2016 Ford fusion
It has airbag warning light turns on & passenger air bag light goes off, after few seconds of ignition/engine on. I hooked up the scanner and it gives B2290 code stating Occupant Classification System fault, I tried erasing the code, but unable to do it, as it comes right back on. I unplugged the wiring to OCM (or occupant detection / weight) sensor part#14B422 underneath the passenger seat, and then ofcourse U1900 came which says SRS module fault, but then I was able to erase the B2290 code, and not U1900. I also took it to a body shop as they have high end diagnostic tools, and they said recalibrating the OCM sensor should fix the issue, they tried to recalibrate it two times was successfully completed but the code didn't go away. So they are suspecting that OCM sensor could be bad itself, and need to be replaced.
Its an expensive part $180, I don't want to just replace it, if its really not required. Looking for 2nd opinion or suggestion to how to really identify the problem part.

Ofcourse they didn't allow me to watch the process they are doing, so I don't have full details on what all they did.

I inquired with dealership over phone about it, and as per them following spec, it needs to replace all 4 sensors underneath the seat including rail sensors, and all & all. I can't even locate those 4 sensors they talked about at fordparts.com with my car details. I also couldn't locate those many plugs & sensors underneath the passenger seat in my car. So I am not sure how much to trust that information.

Its an expensive part $180, I don't want to just replace it, if its really not required, and thus may not fix the problem. Looking for 2nd opinion or suggestion to how to really identify the problem part. And if there is a way to test if the sensor is really bad, by jumping/shorting the wires, resistance test etc etc.
Power steering malfunction light came on. No power steering, shut car off restarted and the power steering was working again. What is problem? Is a 2011.
I recently changed my light bulbs into LED, then all the sudden, each time I start my car and use the headlights, the dash where odometer is on my "Ford Fusion SE 2007", keeps saying " Check Front Left Lamp, Check Front Right Lamp". And I dont know what going on. The LED lights or the head lights works fine but I am so confused on whats happening. Any easy fix to get rid of this error?
Happens only when the a/c is on
Changed the a/c compressor and belt, didn't help
Looses power uphill and engine gets loud. Almost sounds like has no exhaust. Would like to know if there is a recall on the throttle body. So I can have it replaced, for free.
