This issue needs to recalled. I was at the dealer talking to a friend who works there and he said that they see the issue a lot; more than they should. If so, did you have any success with it? Took a week to get an appointment and I left the truck for two days. Most likely will be more than that because the quote did not include all of the fluids that need to be put back in. Will 3rd time be a charm? It has cost me a lot of money through it all. After researching and found all of these complaints shame on Ford for not covering the cost for this known issue.
I am a mechanic so I pulled it out, tore it down and rebuilt it. Spoke with my Ford dealer today. It is very disappointing and frustrating with this heatwave got no on and trying to me my 10 month old grandson from melting in the back seat. Had to replace the blower motor because wherever it is leaking from destroyed it. Crystal Hoping I have the correct thread for my help request. I think it's been going on for a while because the last time I had the car in, I told them it smelled like burning oil but they said they couldn't find anything.
I will assume the internal fluid is mostly sludge. Never will use them again! I was skeptical, but they agreed to cover repairs. Next time is on me. Does anyone know about a similar issue? My question is what is Ford going to do about this very expensive repair that owners have to pay for that is a manufacturer defect? As far as I am concerned a car with only 73K should not have this issue. Just bought a used 2007 Ford Edge with 120,000 miles. Hopefully the new one will last. Just gonna live with it now.
Has been repaired 2x both with about 6 months success. Need a new transfer case on my 2012 Ford Flex with 61k miles on it. I had it checked at my Ford dealer, they said it was a very solid car, no issues with the suspension, looked new and the engine runs very strong, no issues. Had to replace par converter and crankshaft gaskets. This is my 8th Ford, and this is how I am treated??? Go to the gas station to fill up before heading to work. Someone needs to do something about these issues immidiately. Ford fixed it and it was under warranty but I feel it hasn't drove the same since.
I heard the rear drive line break. I'm going to take it to another mechanic to get a second opinion. Right now part is on order. Then it started to leak on my driveway so they fixed it again. I do hope this law firm is able to hold Ford accountable for this faulty part! I get some of this is normal wear and tear but come on. First Ford I have purchased and will be my last for sure. Brought the vehicle brand new in Apil 2016, a 2016 Ford Explorer Sport.
I was told it stunk their entire workshop and offices out. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. Once I get my car back, I might be looking switch and staying away from Ford. Performance was normal, looked underneath car for known common issue. There is no drain plug to drain and replace the fluid which is the same fluid that is in the rear differential. Once we got new transmission we realized the old one always had problems. If this has been a problem that Ford has been aware of why weren't the dealers at least notified to inspect and check the fluid in transfer case.
There is some discussion about this out there. Shift solenoids were the likely culprit. Fluid is black and puddle in the garage. My question is, why is this a non-serviceable unit. I'm so concerned for my family and I'm now reading on the internet that this is not just a random issue and people are pleading for a safety recall before someone is hurt or killed due to the multiple transmission issues that are affecting so many of these vehicles.
I will need to remove that ans rebuild it with new gears soon. I like to have the right info, even if the dealer does the work. Now I'm at 81K miles and ready to get it changed again. Transmission fluid leaks from ptu assembly onto exhaust, into vents and into our lungs. It's known to be happening to all Ford Edges I have no warranty on the vehicle which makes it harder to afford to pay for the repair. I love Ford but am extremely disappointed with this issue. I own an auto repair shop so I had it in the shop and knew without a doubt it was leaking.
I have a 2009 Ford Flex. My other problem is that the air conditioning has had one issue after the other. No leaks, no metal powder by the seal or shaft ends. I have been having problems with it for a while it is very outrageous price to get it fix I have five kids that I take everywhere they need to go and that is the only family car we have. We won't drive until fixed. The part has to be completely replaced at starting parts mind you at least the 1000 bucks then labor.
