car   Check Engine Light On problem 2
Failure Date: 06/28/2014

For several months the vehicle has been randomly shutting off mid-drive. Followed by that the check engine light and a wrench light would light up. A week ago we received letter in the mail from Ford saying that our vehicle is eligible for new throttle body since there has been issues since manufactured, which perfectly explained our problem. We took it to Ford, where they replaced the throttle body. However, only a week later the car is back to the same throttle body part problem. On Saturday, 6/28/14 at around 11:40pm the car turns off mid-drive right before I cross over a major intersection, rt 130 and rt 30 in collingswood, NJ area. I quickly braked and turned the engine completely off before I passed the white line. I sat through an entire green and red light. Once the light turned green again, I started the car back up and pressed my gas pedal. The car instantly turned off again, where I was now caught in the intersection. There was no momentum, so I very slowly coasted through during the green light, yellow light, and possibly some of the red light. Luckily, I made it through the intersection out of harm, but I was at a great risk of getting t-boned by oncoming traffic on a major street such as route 130 especially late at night. Obviously, the new throttles do not fix the problem. I no longer feel safe driving this car after this near fatal incident. Is Ford going to wait until there is fatalities from this manufactured malfunction before they act and recall this make and model?.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 3
Failure Date: 12/03/2013

While traveling on the local highway, the car lost power and started to shake. The service and check engine lights appeared on the dashboard. Luckily it was not rush hour and the traffic was light. After pulling off of the road, I was able to turn off the car and back on. The engine appeared to operate normally. The incident happened again a few miles later. This time the check engine light remained on after the restart. I was able to successfully drive the car to the local dealership. The dealer stated that the throttle body needed to be replaced. Luckily I have an extended warranty and it only cost me $100, unlike some of the other folks who have reported the same issue. This could have been much worse if the traffic was heavier or if I was unable to get to the side of the road quickly.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 4
Failure Date: 11/03/2013

Driving approximately 70mph at night on the interstate when engine stopped producing power. Rough idle and vibration, forcing me to coast to the shoulder. Pressing gas pedal had no effect even though engine was running. I attempted to restart and was successful. This occurred four times during my 30 mile trip. Each time I was forced to coast to the side of the road during moderate traffic. Once on a side street I was forced to stop in the driving lane as there was no shoulder. Very dangerous. On all of the occasions the wrench light illuminated as well as the check engine light. I called the dealer the next morning and they were very familiar with the problem. My car was out of warranty, so I was forced to pay for the part and labor. Ford knows that there is a faulty part that causes a hazardous loss of power and control of the vehicle. Error code was p2111.

Failure Date: 10/23/2013

The contact owns a 2010 Ford Fusion. The contact stated that while driving 40 mph, the vehicle began jerking and stalled. The check engine warning light was also illuminated. The contact pulled over and shifted into park, and the vehicle began shaking while in park. The contact was able to restart the vehicle and the stalling failure ceased. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer, who stated that the throttle body was defective and needed to be replaced. The contact did not have any repairs performed on the vehicle. The failure mileage was 93,677. Returned by usps on 11-15-2013. Second attempt on 11-20-2013 failed.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 6
Failure Date: 10/23/2013

Tried to start vehicle after filling up on gas, already had about 1/4 tank prior to fill up, recently driving for several miles (car is warmed up fully) and it immediately stalled. This had never happened to me, and it occurred to me that just before the gas fill up I noticed somewhat rough engine response in a very short drive from across the street. I've read that there are issue with throttle body faults on Fusion and escape that do not log under normal odb 2 codes after turning engine off. I never saw the check engine light come on.


car   Check Engine Light On problem 7
Failure Date: 10/15/2013

Driving at highway speed when vehicle died, having complete loss of power. Wrench light and check engine light both came on. There was no shoulder to pull over onto and many large 18 wheelers driving by. I pulled over in someone's driveway, turned the vehicle completely off, inspected under the hood and around the vehicle with no findings, and then attempted to restart. The vehicle restarted but had difficulty turning over. I continued to drive for approx 5 more miles when the incident occurred a second time. On the second time the vehicle had loss of power but the engine remained running. There was no throttle response, from depressing the gas pedal. Once I pulled over on the shoulder the engine began rocking the car violently. I immediately turned off the vehicle and let it rest for 5 minutes. I restarted the car once again, this time without difficulty and drove it straight to an auto shop. The mechanic performing work on the car states the error code was p2111 and was the throttle body causing the problem.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 8
Failure Date: 10/14/2013

I was driving on the highway and the car loss power to accelerate. I pulled the car to the side of the highway and turned the vehicle off and restarted the vehicle. I returned back on the highway and the car once again loss power and was stuttering and would not accelerate the engine. I pulled the car off the highway again and turned the car off and restarted the car once again but this time the check engine light stayed on. I took the car to the dealership and they replaced the throttle body .

car   Check Engine Light On problem 9
Failure Date: 10/09/2013

While driving vehicle the speed became to rapidly decrease while the check engine light came on and the car begin shake and sputter. Tried driving again and realized that I was fine as long as I did not go over 40mph. Had to have me car towed home because of the distance between my job and home. Called around, had the code read on the car and it was a "p2112" error code which pointed to the throttle body failure. Contacted Ford and was told that although this is a known issue, I would have to pay for my own part-labor. Paying $445 on tomorrow to have the car repaired. I just purchased the car in January 2013, and me paying for repairs on tomorrow means that I cannot pay my car note. This is horrible since the representative at Ford customer assistance stated that this is a known issue. I've seen multiple posts online regarding the same thing. This is also a safety hazard, had I been going faster on the interstate (I had not made it on yet when the issue first started) myself or someone else could've been seriously injured or killed because of the sudden stop.

The vehicle was towed to the dealer for diagnosis. The technician stated that the throttle body and motor assembly would need to be replaced. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The vehicle was repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 56,000.


 
car   Check Engine Light On problem 11
Failure Date: 09/19/2013

The car stalled in the middle of airport traffic. The wrench light came on and the check engine light. It occured again on the FL turnpike travelling at 75 mph. We no longer drive on the highways and it has happened 3 more times. Research says it is the throttle position sensor, and the only fix is to replace the throttle body.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 15
Failure Date: 09/01/2013

I was traveling on a two-lane paved road in a 50 mile an hour zone when I felt the car start to decelerate. I pushed on the gas pedal but nothing happened and the car continued to slow down. I was able to pull over at the intersection of a side road where I shut the car off. I started the car back up and proceeded out into the main road. Less than a mile down the road the car started to decelerate again and I turned onto my street and coasted to a stop. Both times the check engine light and the wrench icon on the dash came on. When I had the cause of the check engine light diagnosed, I found out that the car's throttle body had failed. I could only order the part through a Ford dealership and the closest one is 40 minutes away from me.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 18
Failure Date: 08/22/2013

I purchased my 2010 Ford Fusion in April of 2012 and have had many incidents of the “check fuel inlet” message after filling up. Sometimes it will trigger the check engine light to illuminate. I have had a diagnostic test ran when this has occurred and was told it was that the gas flap didn’t seal properly when I removed the fuel nozzle. This again occurred on Aug. 17, 2013 but the car was running fine. Then on Aug. 22 I had 3 incidents within 30 minutes of each other. The first incident was while traveling on the highway at approximately 65 mph the wrench warning light came on and the vehicle lost all power. I managed to get the vehicle to the shoulder of the road. I turned the vehicle off and restarted it and was able to travel the next 4 miles with some sputtering and racing of the engine. The second incident I was pulling away from the curb trying to accelerate. The wrench warning light came back on and the vehicle had no power. The third incident I was traveling approximately 20 mph when the engine again lost power and the wrench warning light came on. After researching this issue it seems to be a common occurrence and should become a recall by Ford motor company.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 19
Failure Date: 08/15/2013

While accelerating heard a clunk and lost all power to the transmission and throttle. Throttle light came on, car ran rough. Had to coast to the side of the road. Turned car off and back on. Car ran fine, light went off and I continued home. Now it happened again last week while going 65 on the interstate. Same scenario. It happened again yesterday and twice this morning. Cruise was set the last 3 times, going 68 on the interstate. Last time in addition to the throttle warning light the check engine light came on and stayed on even after restarting. This could have been bad on the interstate, but there wasn't much traffic. It is now at the shop waiting on the verdict.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 21
Failure Date: 08/08/2013

I was driving 35-40 mph when all of a sudden my vehicle slowed, started shaking, the wrench light came on and my gas pedal would not respond. I pulled over, turned my car off, waited for a moment then turned it back on. The check engine light was on but it seemed fine so I decided to continue my drive toward home. 10 minutes later, as I was getting off the highway at 55 mph in rush hour traffic, the car suddenly started shaking, slowed to limp mode and my gas pedal became unresponsive. I continued in limp mode trying to get off the highway and pulled into a business parking lot. This happened several more times as we drove in the parking lot trying to diagnose the problem - once even coming to a complete stop. We used a code scanner, but no codes were being set. We suspect the throttle body but local dealer has none and we r told it is "deep back ordered". Not only do I now have no car to drive, but it is extremely dangerous!.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 22
Failure Date: 08/08/2013

It first started on the highway doing 75mph. My car jerked and wouldn't accelerate and the wrench light came on. I pulled over and shut off my car, turned it back on and it worked fine for about a month. Now it happens much more frequently, it goes about 100 feet before repeating but now my check engine light is on, the wrench light comes on, and my cars shakes when I stop and pull over. I got the code checked and it says it's the throttle body plate getting stuck, I have tried cleaning it already with throttle body cleaner and it hasn't helped at all. I have seen many posts about this happening. Not safe to drive when my car shuts down in the middle of a highway or road.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 23
Failure Date: 08/06/2013

Going on the highway at 70 mph, engine just dies on me, forcing me to pull over, it looses all power but it goes to a very low rpm's for a while, engine shakes and after a couple of minutes just turn off, I turn it back on and it runs like nothing happened. I was out of time approximately 200 miles away from home, this condition happened to me for about 15 times in a 100 miles range. Some times it takes place just after leaving a parking lot, some other times at 20 mph so it is very unpredictible but at the same time pretty dangerous. Every once on a while check engine light goes off, then it is not there.

Failure Date: 07/27/2013

While driving on the interstate, approx. 65-70 mph, the vehicle shudders, loses all throttle response, and the wrench light and check engine light illuminate on the dash display. The vehicle does not shut off or stall, but it does enter limp mode. Once the vehicle is shut off and restarted the wrench light is no longer illuminated and the vehicle will operate normally. This situation repeated 4 different times on the incident date. After speaking with the service manager at the local Ford dealership the problem was acknowledged as a defective throttle body.
