Question about 2008 Ford Fusion
I replaced the battery in my 2008 ford fusion. i started by undoing the positive and negitive terminals, then removed the battery. i installed he new battery and went to start my car. it then went haywire, but started, and it remained at around 750 rpms the interior lights flashed and then all of the indicator light turned on and then off then the check engine light remained on along with the transmission light. i did as the instructions said and let it idle until it was warmed to normal operating temp, then turned on the a/c and waited for the idle to balance out and got no response from the throttle when i pressed it. I then put my car (5 speed) into firrst gear and tried to drive as the instructions said to do and as i let the clutch out , and started in the throtle it stalled out with out moving the tachometer even a little. i then restarted the car and attempted the same thing ( thinking i was the issue) and it repeated the same thing. can anyone help me?
Try disconnecting battery again,neg. 1st then pos. while disconnected hold the negative wire and touch the positive wire together,MAKE sure they don't touch anything else.hold for 10 good seconds. Reconnect to battery, pos.(+) terminal first then neg.(-).tighten. Good luck.

SOURCE: stalls when put into gear
Its possible it could be other things causing the problem, but seeing as you've checked most of the likely causes, it is most likely your Torque-Converter. The lockup clutch in your Stator-Fan located inside the Torque-Converter could be siezed, causing the car to stall.

SOURCE: No Heat in 99 Taurus
Just finished fixing my daughters 1999 taurus heat. It would blow warm only when running down the road. At idle it blew cold. I started with replacing thermostat, and water pump because they are the easier fix. Still did not help. Then I replaced the heater core. A daunting job but not that hard to move the dash slighly out of the way to replace. There is a good write up at tarusclub.com. After that, heat was better but at idle, it would still blow cool sometimes. Researched and found answer. Park car on the steepest hill you can find with front of car up. Start car and take off reservoir cap. Let car warm up and keep rpms about 1500. After a while the fluid will come running out of the car and all over the place but it will bring air bubbles with it. Reduce rpm, add more fluid and repeat about 3 times. It will make a mess but after that, the heater works perfectly. We get heat long before the temp gage indicates any and it never blows cold unless you lower the temp.

I would check the oil pressure of the engine. The reason is the timing chain tensioners are run with oil pressrue. I think your timing chain tensioners are leaking down when engine is getting to operating tempature . The oil is thinning down as warms up , as it should to lubercate . I would check compression and do a cylinder leak down test on all the cylinders. Then if the compression is good and the cylinder leak down is good. I would change all the timing components, ( chain, timing gears, timing chain tensioners )
Good Luck , I hope this helps.
