About Ford Five Hundred
The Ford Five Hundred made its debut at the 2004 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, entered production on July 12, 2004, and became available to the public in September 2004 for the 2005 model year. It was offered in three trim levels: base SE, mid-level SEL and plush Limited. Based on previous-generation Volvo S80 platform, it carried over the all-wheel drive and safety technology and so the front-wheel drive was standard but all-wheel drive available as an option. During its whole life, the Ford Five Hundred had been powered by a 3.0 L Duratec 30 V6 engine that could produce 203 horsepower and this engine sent power through a 6-speed automatic transmission to the front-wheel and through a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) to four wheels.
Ford Five Hundred Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
First, suspension failure and transmission slipping badly between gears. A properly working suspension system is helpful in keep occupants free from discomforts while driving. But some drivers complained that after a while of driving, they felt the vehicle titling to one side due to uneven tire wear, which mostly could be sensed by the clunking or rattling noises coming from the tire area. While excessive vibration and bouncing when driving not only increased the discomfort level of driving but also the likelihood of accidents because of poor handling. The coil springs and air suspension always should take responsibility for this issue. As for transmission failure, which ranked first among all issues about this model, and the clutch disc and clutch slave cylinder are often the culprits.
Second, is engine failure. Again, engine failure is spoken of when it comes to vehicle problems. Ford Five Hundred drivers generally offered symptoms of this issue including engine performance reduced and engine running roughly. And all these symptoms are mostly caused by failing cooling system. According to Ford Five Hundred owners, at first, the oil or coolant leaked from the oil cooler and infiltrated to each other, then Low Coolant Light came on, and the engine overheated a lot. The final results were vehicle had starting issues and the engine stalled, misfired and even failed completely. Thus, you need to pay more attention to auto parts in the cooling system such as oil coolers, radiator hoses, coolant reservoirs, thermostat housing and thermostat gaskets.
Aside from outburst issues on your Ford Five Hundred, you also should be always prepared for issues in potential, which means routine maintenance is an indispensable job for a vehicle owner like you. In the Ford Five Hundred, you need to maintain headlight, fog light, headlight bulb and fog light bulb regularly as all of them undertake the responsibility of offering better driving visibility under adverse weather conditions such as dense fog or dark night. You also need to maintain some electrical parts more often as they would wear out easily due to a high frequency of usage. Speedometer, instrument cluster, fuel pressure sensor, blower motor resistor, throttle position sensor and temperature sender are all should be on your routine maintenance list.
