    Lag in throttle response

    I have a 2016 Ford Fusion with the standard 2.5L engine. This is a pretty good car for my needs, except for one problem. When accelerating from a stop, there is a long delay between the time I press the accelerator pedal and the engine accelerates. It is especially bad when making a turn. For example, if I stopped at an intersection, waiting to make a left turn, when I pull out to actually turn there is no acceleration for around two full seconds. Two seconds may not sound like much to some people, but when you are in a busy intersection and there is a big SUV coming at you, it is long enough to make you nervous. Because of the delay, instinct causes me to push the pedal farther, which means that when the engine does decide to accelerate it pulls hard enough to bark the tires. I have talked to other Fusion owners who have the same problem, and I have talked to mechanics at the Ford dealership. I have heard that this is caused by the Driver Learning Transmission, the Curve Control system, or the transmission being designed for a more powerful engine but used on all engines. I am not aware of my model Fusion having a Learning Transmission or Curve Control System, and the transmission shift points are controlled by the computer, so I don't put a lot of faith in any of those theories. The common response is that nothing can be done about it and I just have to adapt my driving habits to suit the acceleration delay. None of the people saying that works in a busy traffic area like I do. Has anyone on the form encountered this problem? Has anyone found a solution? Thanks in advance, Rick

    2017 Fusion Transmission Maintence

    With 30,000 miles rapidly approaching in my 2017 Fusion 2.0, I decided to start looking around at the maintenance schedule and what would be needed in severe driving. I living in the Chicago area and in stop and go traffic all the time and sometimes can really drive aggressive so I wanted to make sure I did my part to ensure my transmission has a long life. Ford Quicklane recommended that I do a trans flush. However, on a Fusion forum everyone seems to recommend a drain and fill around 30,000 or every year in some cases. Some say flushes can be counter productive with that transmission. The most recommended process I've read is something a do it yourselfer could do pretty easily. Drain the fluid and replace amount drained with new Ford (or Amsoil) fluid. Do this 3 times to ensure all fluid has been changed. In between each time drive about 1k. Theoritcally, your fluid will be completely changed. Repeat process every 30,000 miles. Now, I know it's the internet and everyone has their way of doing things so what works for some might not work for others. Does anyone know any negative effects of doing a flush with this transmission? What are the benefits of just doing a drain and fill? It of course has no dipstick to check fill which is annoying. Any thoughts or first hand experience is appreciated.
  3. Hello all, SCoville 619 from San Diego here. New member, and I am looking for a tech savvy forum on the 2003-2005 Lincoln Aviators. I have owned a 96 Thunderbird that was an impound magnet, but faaaaast, a 95 Mercury Cougar Xr7, with the most unusual plenum I had yet seen, and practically every...single... motor related issue found with the 4.6, EXCEPT the cracking of the plastic plenum as mine was cast aluminum. an 05 Montego, with a real bad pressure valve in the steering rack and my new purchase, a 2003 Aviator with the 4V 4.6L modular!...an auction purchase with 205k miles. ( during the inspection, I didn't press the info button on center console to switch from trip to mileage, thinking it a steal with the 166k miles listed). she has some problems and I am hoping to find solutions here. Please, if you can point me to threads regarding overdrive cutoff not responding, ( od off /buster light lit constantly on the dash), the old gear selector wont move with foot on brake, sereto schematics, and upgrading to SYNC from an 2003 model, tune up on a 4V, um... best suggestion for front suspension parts and bushings, and... what's up with the DVD? Thank you!
  4. Do we have confirmation on the engines and transmissions that will be used in the 2019 Focus? I assume it will have the 8 speed but you know what happens when you assume!
  5. The transmission issues with Ford are absolutely ridiculous. I just bought out the lease of my 2014 Ford Focus a month ago and now the car is stuck in the shop with transmission issues. I was driving to an important appointment (which I missed) when it just stopped moving forward and I lost all power. Anyone else have something similar happen? If so, what was wrong with your car/how much did it cost? It’s been at the dealership for a week and a half now and I still have no exact answer as to what is wrong. Apparently, just to diagnose the problem the whole transmission needs to be overhauled and the labor alone is around $2000!! That’s before I even know what’s wrong and know how much the part to fix it will cost. A year ago I heard about a transmission recall and had the clutch replaced, is there any way it could be related? If I had known that a car this new would have transmission issues I never would have bought it in the first place. The dealership can’t even work with me and give me a loaner car while the work is being completed. All I can hope is that we will figure out the issue and will have a car back soon! I used to think very highly of Ford vehicles but after this catastrophe and all the things I’ve been reading about all the transmission issues Ford cars have I don’t think my next car will be from Ford. I mean c’mon, it’s a 2014, I shouldn’t be having transmission issues! My 2001 Mitsubishi was more reliable than this and I would take that car back in a heartbeat at this point! If anyone has any advice or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated!
  6. I have 90K on my truck and have recently had my Transmission Flushed and now my truck is slamming into 2nd gear. There was NO issue before the service and I also had all 4 struts replaced and the differentials serviced as well. It has progressively gotten worse over the last few days and it is eased a little by taking the OD off. Also it isn't as bad with you roll slowly into 2nd gear. PLEASE HELP! Anyone had this problem. I love my truck and really can't afford a whole new Transmission over this...
  7. I added to much transmission fluid and tried to drain some out by pulling the drain plug and putting it back in when I think I've drained enough but the level on the dipstick has not seemed to have gone down any. I've done this twice now. Any idea what's happening?
  8. I have a 2007 Explorer Eddie Bauer V6. It has 198,000 miles. The transmission seems to be slipping in 2nd and 3rd gear. gets up to 3000 rpm before it shifts. runs fine in 5th on highway. could this be torque convertor or something else /worse. My wife had her 2005 Free Star torque convertor replaced under recall. The explorer is not worth a whole lot with the amount of miles I have, so I m not going to spend a lot on it. any ideas?
