Question about 2007 Ford Fusion V6

1 Answer

When stopped at a light or sitting talking to someone in drive, my 07 fusion has a strong vibration?

Also when I start the vehicle and don't let it warm up for maybe 5 minutes, and start to drive it sounds like its purring at me. Mind you, I'm a female and that's the easiest way to explain it. I live in Arizona so it doesn't get very cold and it's done this for a bout a year.

    My fluids are fine, I've had multiple oil changes over the time period and a transmission flush. It actually does get louder when I turn. Like it purrs almost. I know.. a purr? But that's the best way I can explain it. I'm taking it in to Ford for the oil change and I asked them too look and see what the issue is but I just want some kind of insight before I get it back from them and they tell me the problem.

The first thing to do is check all of your fluids. Does the noise get louder as you turn the wheel at all?

SOURCE: Cold weather starting 2000 Ford Ranger

I would check the Air Charge Sensor. This sensor measures the temp of the air charge going into the fuel injection system, when you truck is cold it requires more fuel and less air, if this sensor has gone bad it would lean out your fuel mixture as if the vehicle was already warm.

SOURCE: A loud sound shortly after starting my car

I'm guessing that you Expedition has been making this noise probably since you've had it? Even if it hasn't, I think I can bring you some comfort. If you could pinpoint where the noise was coming from under the hood, would you say that it's somewhere over on the passenger side? My dad owns a 1998 Ford Eddie Bauer Expedition, and we noticed a loud noise with the same habits as what you're describing. Come to find out, there is an air compressor under the hood, I can't remember exactly what it's for, but the sound that I believe you're hearing is the compressor filling up with air and then shutting off once the proper amount of pressure is reached. You might try popping the hood to try to locate the exact place that it's coming from, but I can tell you that it's probably a 99% chance that when you find your noise, you'll find the compressor I'm referring to. Hope this proves to solve your issue and helps to ease your worries. Have a wonderful evening!

SOURCE: Air Conditioner stops blowing cold air when vehicle is not moving

plus one on the cooling fan problem. if it was low on charge then as you slow down, condensor temps and line prressures would raise therefore it would cool at low speed and and not when moving since the incoming air would drop system temp,reducing line pressure and then cusing compressor to cycle. the auxillary cooling fans must be on whenever a/c is on, if not, thats your problem. get this taken care of because if you get stuck in traffic, your engine will overheat also if fans are not running

SOURCE: My focus tdci 1800 ran fine until recently. I was

This is one of them faults thats very difficult to diagnose but if what you say is right then i would change the drivers door lock ,they are repairable as they are a sealed unit on these cars,but i did have a similar problem with a petrol version on one of the first models of these cars about a 99 or 2000 as i remember and it would play up just like this ,open and close the door lock with key three times and it started.then be ok for a week then not start again so i had the key man down with his programmer and he checked it out for the key remote and found nothing wrong with either the master or the spare key and he said try changing the door lock because he had this problem before with other ford focus models and mondeos .Change the lock and it was ok for a week but the owner sold the car for a new car on the scrappage scheme so i never did find out it was ok after that

2010 ford fusion vibration at idle and acceleration.


Chances are its a minor miss in one of the cylinders. You don't feel it neutral at idle or until the trans goes into overdrive because those times the engine is not working very hard.
If it is a miss fire the check engine light will come on when it gets bad enough to affect fuel mileage.
If you have not yet changed the plugs I would start with that. There is also a chance you damaged the engine when it overheated.

Engine stall when warm


It sounds as though you need to take the
car to a repair shop & start almost anywhere
& just go thru the entire engine & all it's systems

I can not imply what you do or don't do, in the way of
vehicle maintenance, but you need to have every possible
check & test done & get caught up

After the fact, i bet you don't have much wrong, other than
driving it, until it acts up vs: being proactive & looking for problems

Why does a 2006 Ford Fusion have a strong vibration when stopped and in Drive?


If there are no check engine lights could be a bad motor mount or two. Would have them checked. Try putting car in neutral and see if vibration disapates a little.

Check engine light is on, truck vibrates while in park, at a red light or a stop sign.it has 130,000 miles on it.


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for at least 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Strong front end vibration at speeds over 60 mph. Shocks, ball joints have been replaced and wheels aligned and balanced. Took it to a tire repair shop and they couldn't find problem. Any ideas on...


You need to have someone look at it that is experienced in NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness). Front end vibrations can be caused by many things. Each possibility needs to be systematically eliminated to find the cause. Someone who is experienced in this can eliminate several possibilities by simply driving the vehicle...Did the tire shop even bother to road test it? I'll bet not!

Sometimes INTERNAL tire problems can cause a vibration that cannot be found (or eliminated as a possibility) by putting the tires on a balance machine. To eliminate this as a possibility, rotate the tires front-to-rear one side at a time then drive the vehicle to see if the vibration changes or "moves". If it does, then the tire that just got rotated to the rear is the problem.

Also, the vehicle can be run on a lift to see if the vibration can be duplicated in the shop. Many times, if the vibration is being caused by a drive axle or CV joint, it can be located by running the vehicle on a lift this way. In the case of 4-wheel drive vehicles, it will be necessary to engage the front axles to get them spinning on the lift.

The entire steering and suspension system should be checked for looseness in the tie rods, stabilizer links and frame bushings, control arm bushings, etc. Any looseness in any of these parts can cause vibrations at certain speeds.

I have also seen vibrations that act similar to a tire being out of balance that occurs when the brake rotors loose a balancing weight on some vehicles. This may or may not apply to your vehicle, (yours may not have balance weights in the rotors) but this type of vibration can usually also be verified by running the vehicle on a lift.
