Question about Ford Fusion
Engine light and picture of a wrench came on. Took car to dealership. They said the EGR tube burned a hole in the wiring harness. Is this common? 3yr warranty had just expired. Extended Warranty refused the claim. They appealed and it was overturned. Warranty is covering the cost less my decduible. Is this a design flaw or what?
I have never heard of this problem on this model, but it would likely be caused by excessive exhaust system back pressure due to a possible faulty catalytic converter broken catalyst ceramic brick.

This problem sounds like ablown head gasket, this would make the oil mix in with the gas and would result in discolored smoke out of the exhaust pipe.

My fans that cool the engine do not come on at all. The temperature climbs when I sit still. When I drive, the car seems to cool down.What do I need to do.

I had the same problem, then took my car to an expert repair shop who diagnosed the sensors and
found no problem with the car. They notified the DMV who was unaware of the problem, who then told the repair shop (John's Bascom Automotive) that they will adjust their computer system to allow a "two speed idle test". My bill was $95 and I still have to pay for a smog test after driving around for
a couple of days to clear the computer monitors, a fair amount and I gladly paid it.
John advised me that I'd get no satisfaction with Toyota or the DMV. I went to the dealership where I
bought the car and they said that the smog stations don't know what they're doing. They charge
about $100 and work around the P0500 code but it takes them about two hours to do this. I told
them that I should have been notified about the dyno none-compatability by Toyota and that Toyota
should have notified the DMV beforehand. I wonder how many speed sensors are being replaced by
unknowing smog shops around the state. I got Toyota's main customer support phone number and
will call them Monday. I'm going to get my pound of flesh ($95 worth) from the DMV next week also.
