The Top 3 Commonest Ford Problems by Model and How to Fix Them DIY

Ford is a legendary automotive brand. Its name? Synonymous with quality, reliability, safety, and technological sophistication -- everything a car, truck, or SUV should have, and be. Keep up with servicing your Ford vehicle, and it should live up to that name, lasting you decades and hundreds of thousands of miles.

Good thing you came to us here at Ford OEM Parts Direct for maintenance advice. Here's a few issues you might run into with some Ford models sometimes, and how to handle them.

1. Ford Fusion: Bad Transmissions

If your Ford Fusion is having trouble shifting, or it's shifting hard, it's usually because of a faulty powertrain control module (PCM) or transmission control module (TCM). These are known issues on models from between 2006 and 2018, with an average of 81,000 miles on their odometers these days. Often, all you need to do is update the modules, or have them reprogrammed -- something Ford dealers usually do.

Run an inspection to figure out what's going on. If it turns out one module or another is the problem, you'll want to have a service center take care of it. Otherwise, if your ride's higher-mileage, the trouble could be a damaged transmission, requiring anything from a valve body replacement to a complete transmission rebuild.

2. Ford Edge: Failed Brakes

If your Ford Edge hisses when you step on the brake pedal, and the pedal feels spongy, there's a good chance it's because the diaphragm on the brake booster's torn. This is a known issue for models from between 2007 and 2015, with 97,000 miles on their odometers on average.

Ford put out advice on what to do about it in service bulletin 13N02, and it's possible that your warranty's extended to cover repairs, so double-check. Either way, though, you'll have to replace the diaphragm. The tear gets worse, and it'll only get tougher to brake.

3. Ford Explorer: Faulty Body Parts

If the liftgate on your Ford Explorer has cracked, it's likely only happened to the applique. This is a known issue for models from between 1991 and 2007, with 227,000 miles or less on their odometers nowadays. Ford has a how-to on how to replace it without damaging your rear windshield.
