2010 Ford Taurus
Engine not specified
Raw fuel smell in the drivers cabin.
Wrench light on "Limp Mode" operating on 4 cyl not full 6 cyl. The vehicle entered the Ford Freeway Dealership Service Department 5 times and they could not resolve the "Raw Fuel Smell" entering the drivers cabin. The vehicle was been monitored for Combustible Gas detection and results prove positive.
transmission would seem to be in neutral at a stop and then slam into first gear.Sensor was replaced in trans. This is a known problem--the dealer even has the part in stock. Fix seems to correct problem.
the wires from the air intake sensor became frayed and were shorting out.
2 Main recurent problems, still unresolved is push to touch start does not work. Car is unstartable w/o a 2nd remote or leaving the car for 6 hours allowing onboard pc's to sleep mode. Other issue is speed sensor in the tranny.
Buyback. Rough idle issue. First attempt reflashed PCM. Second did spark plugs per TSB. Thirdeplaced fuel injector, coil, wiring harnesses, PCM etc and removed the heads. Total of 74 days. Replaced with a 2011.
Cruise control shutting down, transmission appears to hunt for correct gear. Latest event, turned on transmission/AWD error wrench. Went into limp home, which cleared after getting to side of road and restarting. Rest of trip uneventful
Recurring problem. Same as above.
Both turbo's leaking oil at seam.
Leaking oil near rear turbo.
Oil leak required second repair attempt.
Rear turbo oil leak. Dealer finally jumped through enough hoops that Ford let them change the turbo. That was really the overall issue.
Turbo sensor failed, resulting in very rough driving. Sensor replaced and all is well... so far.
Transmission shifting poorly..was told at 1,450 miles I needed to let the transmission "learn" my driving habits more. They reset software to "ground zero" and I am starting from scratch and will see what happens. Wish me luck.
Transmission "slipped" or hard shifted when going from first to second gear at very slow speeds...dealer reflashed transmission and problem seemingly gone (I hope).
Transmission reflash to correct low-speed slip shift
Engine light staying on; Diagnosed bad sensor; Sensor ordered.
Engine light on; part (sensor) ordered in Nov & replaced in Dec.
Same problem with engine light coming on; called dealer and the same sensor replaced as in Dec.
Car stalled and bucked after everytime the gas tank was filled. They replaced the gas tank, hoses and vapor valves. After two more fill ups every thing seems to be fixed.
